methane The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced a $5 million grant to fund US as well as international organizations for reducing global climate pollution.

This grant will be issued through the methane to markets partnership http://www.epa.gov/methanetomarkets , which is public-private collaboration between various government, private and public sectors who are implementing projects around the globe. This will help in reducing methane from four key sectors: agriculture, coal mines, landfills and oil and gas systems.

Non-profit and government organizations from methane to markets partnership can apply for the grant funding. Following are the countries: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, Nigeria, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States, Vietnam, European Commission. Organizations from other countries that are not in partnership can still submit an application for a project. But they must first apply to the Methane to Markets Partnership before the project can be considered for funding.

The agency is going to award up to 35 cooperative assistance agreements ranging from $100,000 to $750,000 to proposals which support feasibility studies, Technology transfer, Deployment of technology, Training, Methane emissions inventories and other activities that promote methane capture and use.

Deadline: Proposals are due by April 15th 2010 at 1:00pm [EST].
