ESTCP Announces FY 2019 New Start Project Selections


ESTCP has selected forty new start projects to begin in FY 2019. These projects responded to the FY 2019 ESTCP Environmental Technologies and Installation Energy and Water solicitations. Topics addressed by these projects include management and remediation of chemical contaminants;  improved energy efficiency and security; munitions response in underwater environments; improved management of natural resources,  management of waste at forward operating bases, and green manufacturing and maintenance of weapons systems and platforms.

The tables below list the FY 2019 ESTCP new start projects for Environmental Restoration, Installation Energy and WaterMunitions ResponseResource Conservation and Resiliency, and  Weapons Systems and Platforms. As project overviews become available, links from the project numbers will be provided below. Information on these and other SERDP and ESTCP projects is also available under Program Areas
