  1. Chemically Active Label for the Visual Estimation of Fruit Ripeness

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The US pear industry is facing the challenge of marketing an increasing harvest of winter pears-one that will soon exceed 20 million bushels. Agricultural specialists have long recognized that the biggest obstacle to the successful marketing of the winter pears is the fact that the consumers are generally ignorant of the requirements to ripen fruit and are often disappointed with their experience ...

  2. Quality and Its Economic Impact on Rural Small Business Maine

    SBC: Central Maine Solutions            Topic: N/A

    Currently, small businesses face many challenges to success and growth. Rural regions particularly suffer from the lack of convenient, effective and affordable resources, inhibiting growth in the dominant service and other non-manufacturing sectors. These regions, upon suffering the higher-paying job losses from manufacturing shrinkage, struggle to maintain their vitality and promote economic reco ...

  3. Automated Fouling Mitigation System for Dairy Filtration Membranes

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The proposed cleaning system will electrolytically generate the cleansing and disinfecting chemicals required for dairy processing filtration systems on-site consuming only water, electricity, and oxygen from air. The prototype 3-chamber electrolysis cell to be developed in Phase I will be used to determine the viability of applying this technology to the treatment of filtration systems. Alkaline ...

  4. Portable Sensor for the Detection of Nitrates and Nitrites in Groundwater

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR proposal describes a program to develop a small, portable, low-power amperometric nitrate and nitrite sensor for groundwater. A renewable, robust sensor integrated into a microfluidic system is proposed and will be designed to specifically detect nitrate and nitrite anions without significant dilution or reduction in the sensitivity of the detected species. The proposed microfluidic, ele ...

  5. A Novel Electrochemically Regenerable Ion-Exchange System for Nitrate Removal

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The objectives of the Phase II program are to optimize the nitrate extraction/recovery process and to develop a bench-scale redox-recyclable nitrate removal system to be evaluated in water treatment, residential, and industrial settings. All of the basic concepts were proven in the Phase I program, and feasibility was demonstrated. It was shown that a redox-active extractant can be dissolved in a ...

  7. Alaska Fiber Mill to Promote Rural Development and Sustainable Agriculture

    SBC: Funny River Ranch, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Implementation of a full service fiber mill in the State of Alaska would greatly benefit rural ranches and farms by offering value-added processing in state, thereby allowing ranches and farms to expand their fleece production. All fiber producers are currently required to process their fiber themselves or send it out of state and sometimes out of the country to obtain end products for sale, which ...

  10. Commercialization of a New Strain of Encarsia Formosa for Silverleaf Whitefly Control

    SBC: HGI Worldwide, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research investigates the potential of commercializing a new strain of E. formosa on silverleaf whitefly for marketing to greenhouse growers. USDA-APHIS-PPQ (MBCL) has been rearing the new strain on silverleaf whitefly since 1992. HGI has been culturing this strain of E. formosa on silverleaf whitefly since 1997. Data collected to date indicates this parasitoid strain is effective aga ...
