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
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Michael Grey, Scientist – 605-695-6631
Award Amount: $99,500.00
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
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Tyler Remund – 605-695-6631
Award Amount: $99,875.00
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
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Kamal Mjoun
Award Amount: $150,000.00
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
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Michael Grey
Award Amount: $500,000.00
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
