Award List:

Production of high protein distillersâ dried grains with solubles (HP-DDGS) to replace fish meal in aquaculture diets.

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,500.00
Agency:
USDA
Principal Investigator:
Michael Grey, Scientist – 605-695-6631
Abstract:
In 2007, wild captured fish accounted for about 15.7% of the animal protein consumed by humans on a global basis, and per capita consumption of fish and shellfish products is increasing, parallel with the global human population. Unfortunately, harvest rates of wild fish have decreased by ~0.7 mmt… More

Engineering Photosynthetic Cyanobacteria to Produce the Energy-Dense Fuel Farnesene from Carbon Dioxide

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,875.00
Agency:
USDA
Principal Investigator:
Tyler Remund – 605-695-6631
Abstract:
The goal of the project is to genetically engineer photosynthetic cyanobacteria that will synthesize farnesene from carbon dioxide. The work will then involve shutting down pathways that compete for carbon in an attempt to maximize the amount of farnesene that can be produced. Then we will do… More

SBIR Phase I: A microbially-based process to produce a high-quality soy protein concentrate for complete fish-meal replacement in aquaculture diets

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$150,000.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a process to produce high quality soy protein concentrate (HQSPC) as a fish meal replacement in aquaculture feeds, while providing a binding agent for extrusion and an immunostimulant for disease control. The proposed… More

SBIR Phase II: A Microbially-Based Process to Produce a High-Quality Soy Protein Concentrate for Complete Fish-Meal Replacement in Aquaculture Diets

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$500,000.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a process to produce high quality soy protein concentrate (HQSPC) as a fish meal replacer in aquaculture feeds, while providing a binding agent for extrusion and an immunoprophylactic for disease control. Increased demand… More

Omega-3 Fatty Acid Enhanced DDGS for Aquaculture Feeds

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,897.00
Agency:
USDA
Principal Investigator:
Liyan Chen, Principal Investigator – 605-692-1266
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a microbial process to economically upgrade distillers & #39; dried grains with solubles (DDGS) into an omega-3 enhanced DDGS (Omega-3 DDGS) to replace essential fatty acids found in fish oil commonly used in aquaculture diets.… More

Production of High Protein Distillers` Dried Grains with Solubles (HP-DDGS) to Replace Fish Meal in Aquaculture Diets

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$450,000.00
Agency:
USDA
Principal Investigator:
Scott C. Sindelar – 605-690-5212
Abstract:
Aquaculture is the fastest growing segment in U.S. food production, and in 2011 NOAA estimated that the U.S. aquaculture industry was worth $1.2 billion. The FAO estimates that aquaculture will soon overtake captured fisheries as a source of food fish. The rapid global expansion of aquaculture has… More
