  3. Metadata assisted Management of Diabetes in Rural Health Disparity Communities

    SBC: AUTOMATED MEDICAL DIAGNOSTICS, LLC            Topic: 86

    Diabetes is an epidemic disease in the United States and worldwide. Diabetes care accounts for 10% of all U.S. healthcare costs, most of which is consumed in the care of complications from diabetes, but also includes lost economic productivity from illness, disability and blindness. Despite the high incidence of diabetes, low health literacy and limited access to health care resources keeps famili ...

  4. Development of a modular submersible mussel raft for use in semi-exposed Maine waters subject to drift ice

    SBC: PEMAQUID MUSSEL FARMS, L.L.C.            Topic: 87

    Despite a 40 year history of aquaculture production of edible marine mussels in the United States, domestic mussel farmers currently capture only about 10% of the fresh mussel market, valued at $40 million and growing. The growth of U.S. mussel raft culture, which is utilized to protect crops from avian predators, has been hampered by a lack of improved production technology in semi-exposed waters ...

  5. Ambient Temperature Oxidation Catalyst for Ethylene Control in Fresh Produce Containers

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The respiration of fresh fruits and vegetables (FF & amp;V) converts oxygen from the surrounding air into carbon dioxide, moisture and ethylene. While ethylene is used under controlled conditions as a ripening agent, the presence of even small amounts of ethylene gas in shipping and storage containers causes most fresh produce to deteriorate much faster, potentially spoiling it before it reach ...

  6. A New Renewable Polymer from Bio Oil

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 88

    This project will develop a catalytic process to manufacture a new renewable and degradable bio-plastic that could be used to replace polyethylene in many applications, including those that constitute a large part of land and ocean litter such as bags, food packaging and disposable tableware.

  7. A Regenerable Sorbent for Deep Desulfurization of Alpha Pinene

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 81

    The production of turpentine in the U.S. exceeded 301,000 tons in 2004 (Romney 2004) and the production of resin acids exceeded 800,000 ton in 2003 (Romney 2004), which also includes the production from directly tapping trees (e.g., gum turpentine, gum rosin). There is growing demand for bio-plastics (non-petroleum derived polymers); for example Pepsi announced it will be using bio-plastic bottles ...

  8. Novel and Improved Methods for Extracting Colorants from Indigo and Black Walnut

    SBC: BELLOS, SARAH            Topic: 812

    The market for natural colorants is growing. Trends in food, cosmetics, and textiles show consumers are concerned over the use of synthetic, petroleum-derived dyes and seek a more environmentally friendly option. However, manufacturers cannot compromise on quality, stability, or functionality of colorants in their products. Natural colorants, including from plants, have been used as dyes for thous ...

  9. Agronomic, environmental, and economic evaluation of cyanobacterial bio-fertilizer for small and mid-size farms growing high-value crops

    SBC: THIN AIR NITROGEN SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: 812

    Modern agriculture is highly dependent on nitrogen (N) fertilization to maintain high yields and profitability. In organic agriculture, cover crops and bulky organic amendments supply N; transport costs can be prohibitive, and energy used in transport is substantial. In conventional agriculture, industrial N fixation uses natural gas, high temperatures, and high pressures to convert atmospheric N ...

  10. Development and Evaluation of an Independently Usable Digital Story Telling App with Video Outputs for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities

    SBC: ABLELINK TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 84133S1

    There are a significant number of people in the U.S. whose literacy deficits significantly limit opportunities for written self-expression, including individuals with intellectual disabilities. While this population can offer revealing insights given their unique perspectives, self-expression often occurs in the dependent context of transcription by another person, or, perhaps too often, not at al ...
