SERDP and ESTCP manage projects in five program areas. Each area focuses on a specific component of DoD’s environmental responsibilities. Achieving sustainable solutions in all five areas is essential to improve environmental performance, reduce costs, and enhance mission capabilities.
Technologies to improve energy efficiency, increase the use of renewable energy, and enhance water conservation on DoD installations.
Research and technologies for the characterization, risk assessment, remediation, and management of contaminants in soil, sediments, and water.
Technologies for the detection, classification, and remediation of military munitions on U.S. lands and waters.
Research that advances DoD’s management of its natural and cultural resources and improves understanding of climate change impacts.
Research and technologies to reduce, control, and understand the sources of waste and emissions in the manufacturing, maintenance, and use of weapons systems and platforms.
