The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Math&Science Problem Solving Intervention for Rural Communities

    SBC: LEARNIMATION            Topic: 86

    This Phase II project will work toward increasing the math and science problem solving capacities of high need rural students and their teachers. Math and science and the ability to solve problems in these disciplines lie at the heart of technical innovation and economic security in today & #39;s global marketplace. Research has demonstrated that early math skills are the strongest predictor o ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. One-step Biobased Green Gasoline Production from Biodiesel Plant Waste Glycerol

    SBC: UNITED ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY, LLC            Topic: 88

    This Phase I project aims at converting the biodiesel plant waste crude glycerol to a low cost and high value biobased green gasoline using a novel technology. In biodiesel production, crude glycerol comprises around 10 weight % of the products. Crude glycerolisa waste stream and afinancial and environmental liability in the biodiesel industry. The research in this Phase I study will mainly focus ...

  4. Using Elemental Iodine Vapor Bubbles in a Liquid Medium to Inactivate Mastitis Pathogens on Cow Teat Surfaces.

    SBC: I2 AIR FLUID INNOVATION INC            Topic: 83

    Mastitis is the most prevalent disease in dairy herds world-wide and the reason for extensive production losses. The economic loss due to Mastitis last year in the US alone was 1.7 billion dollars. Milk yield and composition is affected by the Mastitis condition, the microbes that cause it, and/or prevention or segregation methods. Mastitis is a condition affecting cows and other mammals whereby t ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Harnessing Clean River Energy with the RivGen Power System to Replace and Offset Diesel Fuel Use by Rural Communities

    SBC: ORPC ALASKA, LLC            Topic: 86

    This project will make hydrokinetic river energy, a completely renewable resource, into an economical source of clean power for river communities. ORPC will accomplish this by optimizing the prototype RivGen Power System design for lower speed river currents that are prvalent throughout the world. The RivGen Power System generates zero-emission electricity from river currents using no fossil fuels ...

  10. Transmedia: Augmented Reality Game For Essential Transfer Of Science

    SBC: Second Avenue Software, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of a web-based game utilizing the illustrations of chemical elements and science terms created by Simon Basher in his three books, The Periodic Table: Elements with Style!, Chemistry: Getting a Big Reaction!, and Physics: Why Matter Matters! The game will incorporate augmented reality (person-to-person gameplay with the support of the software) to teach g ...
