Abstract strongly encouraged by Sept. 26, 2019.

The goal of the ReSource program is to provide the military with an integrated system to convert plastics, and other energy-dense waste, into food and other strategic chemicals. Developed technologies should function in austere environments to extend long-term missions by engaging single-use wastes and scavenged materials as feedstock, consequently decreasing the logistic burdens and risks associated with delivery of supplies.
