Desalination and Water Purification Research Program Pitch to Pilot
Dept. of Interior 
The objectives of this notice of funding opportunity are to develop innovative and disruptive new technologies or processes to reduce the costs, energy requirements, and/or environmental impacts of treating impaired and unusable water to standards necessary for an identified beneficial use. Improve efficiency of water treatment processes – either by improvements to pre-treatment, post-treatment, monitoring, sensors, or other innovative process/technology. Increase effectiveness of reverse osmosis/nanofiltration concentrate management by reducing cost, energy, and/or environmental impacts. Treat brackish groundwater in a less energy-intensive way than current processes and technologies. And address costs, energy usage, and/or environmental impacts of seawater desalination, including intakes and/or outfalls.
