  4. 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 & V) converts oxygen from the surrounding atmosphere 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 faster, potentially spoiling it before it reaches ...

  5. Preventing Bone Loss and Weight Gain with Combinations of Vitamin D and Phytochemicals

    SBC: Aptotec, Inc.            Topic: 85

    Obesity and osteoporosis are major public health concerns due to their prevalence in our increasingly sedentary and aging society. In the U.S. today, an estimated 55% of people 50 and older are at risk for developing osteoporosis. Because as much as 20% of bone mass can be lost in the first five to seven years following menopause, osteoporosis is a major health issue for aging women. In 2005, oste ...

  6. Rapid Detection of Mycotoxins

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 85

    The risk of contamination of grains and other field crops by mycotoxins, a toxic byproduct of mold infestations affecting as much as one-quarter of global food and feed crop output, is a very important food safety concern. The economic effects attributed to mycotoxin infection are widely felt in all sectors of the production and consumption of grain products. Grain producers are affected by limite ...

  7. Improved Strategies for Elevated Vermicomposting Systems

    SBC: SKOLEX BIOTECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 84

    The agricultural community's relationship with urban centers has always been complicated and highly dynamic. Recent US Census data indicates that "agricultural America" is growing the fastest at the transition zones near urban areas. At the same time there is strong interest by those living in cities and suburbs to participate in food production and farming. In conjunction with thes ...

  8. 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

    In this SBIR Phase I project, Pemaquid Mussel Farms (PMF) seeks to determine the feasibility of fabricating a submersible mussel raft that will eliminate problems associated with surface mussel rafts (mussel drop off, wave and ice damage to rafts, lower yields, visual impacts) while improving crop production and quality. In the northeast and northwestern U.S., the preferred method of mussel suspen ...

  9. Sustainable Green Diesel Production: Upgrading Biomass Waste Pyrolysis Oil

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 88

    The explosive growth of biofuels in recent years has shown that there is great potential for biomass to be a raw material for the production of transportation fuels. Possibly the most economical means to produce biofuels is by the liquification of biomass (fast pyrolysis) and subsequent upgrading. This method is also potentially the most sustainable, provided the feedstock is produced sustainably. ...

  10. Biobased and Biodegradable Impact Modifier for Completely Renewable Bioplastic

    SBC: PolyNew, Inc            Topic: 88

    The now rapidly developing field of plastic materials based on renewable resources (bioplastics) provides tremendous opportunities to sustain and enhance the domestic plastics industries, the fourth largest manufacturing sector of the American economy. In addition, bioplastic materials are derived from agricultural materials and will help reduce the U.S. dependence on foreign oil Growth in the use ...
