On June 23, 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) requested proposals for "Reducing EMbodied energy And Decreasing Emissions (REMADE) in Materials Manufacturing." This funding opportunity is for the development of technologies that reduce life-cycle energy consumption and carbon emissions associated with the production and processing of industrial-scale materials. Up to $70 million is available through REMADE through 2020 with key focus areas including, but not limited to:

  • Information collection, standardization, and design tools for tracking materials, reducing waste, and predicting how a process will work with secondary feedstocks or reused materials;
     
  • Rapid gathering, identification, and sorting of end-of-life and waste materials;
     
  • Separating mixed materials;
     
  • Removal of trace contaminants; and
     
  • Robust and cost-effective reprocessing and disposal methods.

More information is available through the funding opportunity announcement (FOA). Concept papers are due by July 28, 2016, at 5:00 pm (ET) and full applications are due by September 28, 2016, at 5:00 pm (ET).
