Center for Material Life Cycle Safety
The Environmental Protection Agency is inviting grant applications for an interdisciplinary center that applies a life cycle perspective toward the development of materials. The center will develop holistic methodologies and practices for materials design. This holistic approach to design, which considers all the stages of a material's life cycle, provides an opportunity to produce materials
which minimize, and preferably eliminate, any associated potential environmental and human health impacts that may occur during the life cycle.
FUNDS: $10 million is available for two awards of up to $5 million.
