ESTCP invested in one such efficiency project that offered a solution to reduce energy and water use in dishroom operations. The project team was led by Gas Technology Institute (GTI) and the demonstration was conducted at US Army Garrison Presidio of Monterey, CA.
The 2019 Symposium will be held at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park in Washington D.C. on December 3-5, 2019.
Based on tests conducted in SERDP project WP-2144, hexavalent chromium corrosion inhibitors in adhesive bond primers were found to have no statistical significance for adhesive bondline environmental durability compared to non-chromated and non-inhibited primer variants.
SERDP and ESTCP investments in contaminated sediment management research achieved a major milestone with the specification of activated carbon placement as part of the remedy in the Records of Decision (RODs) for Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH) in Hawaii, and for the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard (HPNS) in California.
The New York Times recently highlighted the work being conducted by Dr. Sarah Olson and her team to assess white-nose syndrome (WNS) and non-stationary changes on bat populations.
Resodyn has joined with the Naval Air Warfare Center – Weapons Division, in an effort to develop technologies that will assist DoD in limiting waste streams associated with manufacture of energetic materials under a SERDP-funded effort.
In an effort to continue to strengthen the technology transition efforts, the Installation Energy and Water (EW) program issued a solicitation topic in FY18 on technology transfer, with the goal to identify innovative approaches to promote greater adoption of demonstrated technologies.
A SERDP funded effort led by Dr. Kristina Stinson at the University of Massachusetts – Amherst, examined the functional diversity of soil fungi in lands degraded by the NIS garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata). Moreover, the research team tested the feasibility of different eradication measures for recovery of soil biological diversity and function under a range of regional anthropogenic, abiotic stresses.
ESTCP 2018 Project of the Year Award for Munitions Response
Dr. Schultz’s project began with an assessment of existing amphibious platforms and their capabilities of towing electromagnetic induction (EMI) sensors in nearshore environments. This assessment included the potential impact of each platform on the underwater environment and each system was assessed for use in environmentally sensitive areas.
