Small Business Set-Aside
RECOVERY - The Energy Research Group of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), in collaboration with the Technical Directorate of the Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment (AFCEE), is seeking innovative techniques and approaches for the design, fabrication, and demonstration of a bioreactor that utilizes a municipal waste stream of degradable organic waste within a high solids inflow to generate energy and reduce the volume of material deposited in a landfill from an Air Force installation. The Air Force is interested in demonstrating how biogas from anaerobic digestion of organic waste can be used to offset bioreactor operating expenses or enhance aerobic decomposition of waste for the following purposes: 1) provide economical and sustainable power to an electricity grid to reduce Air Force installation energy costs; 2) produce a marketable by-product if practicable (e.g. compost); and 3) significantly reduce the volume of waste deposited to landfills. A crucial element of the research and development approach will be to fabricate and demonstrate a scaled bioreactor that will handle a feedstock comprised of greater than 20 percent solids. Influent municipal waste solids would include glass, metal, plastic and other inorganic constituents. Additional organic influent such as wood, paper, grass, and sewage sludge could be utilized to determine an optimal influent composition and treatment regime to reach the stated goals and an acceptable return on investment. Anticipated total program funding is $5.832M with multiple awards possible. Interested parties should contact the Technical or Contracting POC listed in this Synopsis.
