Request for Proposals: Marine Black Carbon Emissions Testing


This request for proposals (RFP) supports the marine component of a two-year project on marine and ports black carbon emissions funded by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) and implemented by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT). The CCAC is an international cooperative partnership to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants, including black carbon. The ICCT seeks a research team with expertise on marine emissions testing to generate data on baseline emission factors and control technology evaluation for black carbon (BC) emissions from marine vessels and engines. The resulting research will be integrated into a project funded by the CCAC to generate a refined global marine BC inventory and a database to assess the effectiveness of technologies to reduce black carbon emissions.

Proposals can be up to $350,000 USD.


Deadline for proposals is June 15, 2015 at 5 pm ET.
