EPA Cincinnati Technology Collaboration and Transfer

Water Cluster Research Projects

On Jan. 23, 2012, the EPA Cincinnati water technology cluster team sent out an internal project proposal solicitation. A panel of 11 reviewers was asked to review the proposals and select those they believed showed the most promise of enhancing and strengthening the larger collaborative cluster effort within the region while promoting sustainable water management practices. Of the 43 submitted, 12 research projects were selected to be funded. Some of the proposals were also submitted for a market analysis, and four more projects were later added to be funded, including an Interagency Agreement (IA) with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). This brought the total number of funded projects, including the market analysis, to 17.

The proposals and market analysis studies being funded by the EPA Cincinnati water technology cluster team are listed below under the proper sub-category. A link to an abstract describing the research and including the appropriate EPA contact for the project can be found next to each project title.
