Large volumes of waste fuel, oil, lubricants and some liquid chemicals are generated across the MOD estate and are currently disposed of off-site through external waste management companies, at cost to the tax-payer.  

The aim of the competition is to develop an end to end solution that produces reusable by-products from these waste materials


Scope

This competition is focused on traditional fixed systems but also on a portable (transported by aircraft) bioprocessing system that can be used by MOD on world-wide deployments and potentially by aid organisations for disaster relief operations.

DASA is looking for innovations from bidders using existing and new capabilities to:
   - develop a prototype bio-processing system to break down the waste into its natural by-products
   - develop the most effective microbes, microbe mixes or non-microbial agents, to optimise growth environments to achieve this breakdown for different waste products
   - identify the recycling potential of the by-products to prove that there is a market and use for them
