Air Quality funding available for New Technology Implementation projects

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has made available $3.5 million in grants to individuals and businesses to offset the incremental cost of emissions reductions of air pollutants from facilities and other stationary sources in Texas.

The New Technology Implementation Grant (NTIG) program is part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) and is offered to eligible entities that intend to build, own, and operate new technologies to reduce emissions from point sources or store electricity related to renewable energy.

There are three NTIG project categories:

  • Advanced Clean Energy projects that involve the use of certain hydrocarbons (coal, natural gas, or petcoke), biomass, solid waste, or derived-hydrogen fuel cells, while meeting minimum emissions reductions requirements.
  • New Technology projects that reduce emissions of regulated pollutants (such as criteria pollutants or hazardous air pollutants) from point sources.
  • Electricity Storage projects that store electrical energy related to renewable energy sources.

The TCEQ will accept applications until 5 p.m., Oct. 18, 2016.

It has scheduled a grant application workshop to review the grant requirements and the application process from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., Aug. 17 at the TCEQ headquarters, 12100 Park 35 Circle, Building F, Conference Room 2210A, in Austin.
