This aim of this competition is to stimulate the development of innovative remediation treatments for illegal waste sites. It is also to find ways of reducing the negative impact of these sites on the environment.

This competition is part of the Northern Ireland Environment Agency’s (NIEA) remediation strategy for the Mobuoy Road illegal waste site. They are looking to fund proposals for innovative waste remediation technologies and processes. These should be relevant for the Mobuoy site as well as other illegal sites in Northern Ireland and other regions. There may also be commercial opportunities to apply relevant technologies to regulated landfill sites.

This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition run in partnership with Innovate UK. The Department of Agriculture, Environment & Rural Affairs (DAERA), through the NIEA, is funding this competition as part of the Northern Ireland Executive’s Pilot SBRI Challenge Fund.

The competition has 2 stages. £350,000 has been allocated to fund up to 6 projects in phase 1 of the competition. This phase is for showing the technical feasibility of proposed concepts. Development contracts are expected to last for up to 6 months.
