Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) January 15, 2015
The Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) is accepting proposals for two new projects on recovering high quality biosolids and plasmids from wastewater. The first project entitled "Plasmids and Rare Earth Elements from Wastewater" (WERF project #NTRY8R15) requests that proposers conduct a feasibility study on the recovery of plasmids and rare earth elements from wastewater and help define the standards and specifications needed for water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs) to produce these commodities. This request for proposal (RFP) is due on January 27, 2015 by 4:00 p.m.
The goal of second project entitled "High Quality Biosolids from Wastewater" (WERF project #NTRY7R15) is to significantly expand biosolids use nationwide by helping define the standards and specifications needed for WRRFs to cost effectively produce and more successfully market high-quality, safe, and stable biosolids. WERF is also partnering with a number of water utilities affiliated with the Water Services Association of Australia and Water New Zealand to further expand this research to include Australia and New Zealand. The selected proposer should include capacity on their team for these Australian and New Zealand utilities to participate. This RFP is due no later than 4:00 p.m. on February 17, 2015.
