TCEQ announces new round of grants to help make Stationary sources cleaner

Posted on

On September 28, 2018, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) announced that up to $3.6 million in grants are available for projects that reduce air pollutants from facilities and other stationary sources in Texas. Eligible individuals or businesses must own and operate, or intend to build, own, and operate, stationary sources in Texas.

Following are the acceptable New Technology Implementation Grant (NTIG) project categories:

  • Advanced Clean Energy projects that involve the use of certain hydrocarbons (coal, natural gas, or petroleum coke), such as 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 stationary sources.
  • New Technology Oil and Gas projects that reduce emissions from upstream and midstream oil and gas completions, production, gathering, storage, processing, and transmission activities.

Applications will be accepted until 5:00 p.m., Friday, Dec. 14, 2018.
