Registration Requirements: As part of theDepartment?s implementation ofe-Government, WE ARE REQUIRING THE SUBMISSION OF APPLICATIONS THROUGHGRANTS.GOV. There are several one-time actions you must complete in ordertosubmit an application through Grants.gov (e.g., obtain a Dun and BradstreetData Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, register with the CentralContractor Registration (CCR), register with the credential provider andregister with Grants.gov). You must complete all the one-time actions in?GetStarted? at www.Grants.gov prior to submitting your initial application.APPLICANTS, WHO ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH CCR AND GRANTS.GOV, SHOULD ALLOW ATLEAST 14 DAYS TO COMPLETE THESE REQUIREMENTS. It is suggested that theprocessbe started as soon as possible.Area of Interest 4 is for novel pre-combustion mercury control technologiescapable of achieving at least a 50% (over baseline) increase in mercuryremovalat 50% or less of the baseline cost. The baseline cost estimate is $60,000/lbof mercury removed. This area of interest allows for bench throughpilot-scaletesting. Removal performance should be measured from mercury concentrationinthe as-burned coal.Under Area of Interest 4, DOE/NETL is seeking applications for novelpre-combustion mercury control technologies. Conventional coal cleaningtechnologies, such as those used on bituminous coals to minimize sulfur andash(e.g., hydroclone processing, froth flotation, and these technologies intandem), are not considered novel technologies and will not be acceptedunderthis area of interest. The U.S. Geological Survey estimates thattraditionalcoal cleaning technologies have achieved mercury removals of up to 64%,withoverall average reductions between 21% and 37% (O?Neal et al., 1999). Ifanyproposed novel pre-combustion technology is to be used in conjunction withaconventional coal-cleaning process, the baseline condition would be themercuryconcentration in the as-burned coal after applying the conventionaltechnologyalone. The 50+% mercury removal goal must be achieved in addition to anyremoval from the conventional coal cleaning process.To access the Master Announcement click onhttps://e-center.doe.gov/iips/faopor.nsf/UNID/9028A7CC2A7F481385257013004F6ACE?OpenDocument
