TCEQ Announces Grants for Emissions Reduction Efforts
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality today announced that up to $4.6 million in grants is being made available to eligible individuals and businesses to offset incremental costs of emissions reductions of air pollutants from facilities and other stationary sources in Texas.
The New Technology Implementation Grant program is part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan and is offered to eligible entities that intend to build, own, and operate new technologies to reduce emissions from point sources or store electricity related to renewable energy.
Application deadline is Friday, June 27, 2014, 5:00 p.m., CST.
There are three NTIG program categories:
• Advanced Clean Energy projects involve the use of certain hydrocarbons (coal, natural gas, or petcoke), biomass, solid waste, or derived-hydrogen fuel cells, while meeting stringent emissions reductions requirements.
• New Technology projects reduce emissions of regulated pollutants (such as criteria pollutants or hazardous air pollutants) from point sources.
• Electricity Storage projects store electrical energy related to renewable energy sources.
The TCEQ has scheduled a grant application workshop to review the grant requirements and the application process. Reservations are not required.
Wednesday, April 30, 2014 - Austin, 1:30-3:00 p.m.
TCEQ Headquarters, 12100 Park 35 Circle, Building F, Room 2210, 78753
