The U.S. Air Force awarded a $49 million cost-plus-fixed-fee contract to Concurrent Technologies Corp in Johnstown, PA to provide a research and development program entitled “Environmental and Energy Quality Technologies.” The program will use emerging materials, processes and new technologies to reduce and eliminate toxic and hazardous chemicals, materials, and waste streams, while improving energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions for the Air Force. Task orders will be assigned over the life of the basic contract. At this time, $5.2 million has been obligated. The Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio manages the contract (FA8650-09-D-5601). The objective of the Air Force program is the reduction and eventual elimination of the service’s use of pollution generating chemicals and processes including: ozone depleting substances, greenhouse gases, toxic release inventory, biological oxygen depleting, chemical oxygen depleting, and Resource Conservation Recovery Act regulated chemicals. The program is needed to achieve pollution prevention and ensure environmental compliance during manufacture, operation, maintenance and remanufacture of Air Force aeronautical, space and missile systems and ground equipment.
