The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), and the U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD) expect to entertain proposals to conduct ballast water treatment technology testing and demonstration projects. Depending on Congressional appropriations, NOAA and the Service expect to make available in FY 2005 up to about $2 million to support these projects. In addition, MARAD expects to make available several vessels for use as test platforms. The maximum amount of award will vary with the scale of the proposed project. Anticipated maximum awards for laboratory-scale experiments will be $200,000, for full-scale demonstration projects, $400,000. Technology demonstration proposals must include a long-term development plan that outlines how the technology will be developed from its current state into an effective, commercially viable ballast water treatment system, and how the proposed project is an essential part of this development.
