Applied Science Projects

The objective of the National Technology Transfer Team Applied Science Program is to develop and demonstrate improved technologies to address environmental issues related to the mining of coal and reclamation of the land after mining.  During FY 2005, Congress approved OSM’s request to initiate a program to select and fund applied science proposals that would result in improved protection of the public and environment by advancing improved technology development and transfer related to surface coal mining and reclamation.  Such efforts are needed to better protect identified endangered species, improve reforestation and revegetation, protect prime farmland, improve technologies to mitigate acid mine drainage, improve methods for locating underground mines, and many other issues related to protecting the public and environment associated with surface coal mining.


Current Funding/Solicitation Status

There is currently neither funding nor a solicitation for FY 2014 or until further notice.

If this situations changes, it will be posted on this webpage.
