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. High Efficiency Low Cost Electrochemical Ammonia Production

    SBC: Proton Energy Systems, Inc.            Topic: 84

    The Haber-Bosch process, one of the most impactful developments in human history, has provided enough fertilizer to the world that it is estimated nearly half of the nitrogen found in our bodies originated in a Haber-Bosch chemical plant. However, this technological marvel comes at a price. On U.S. farms, 29% of energy consumed (directly and indirectly) is in the form of fertilizers, and these sam ...

  2. COMPACT EFFICIENT AND ECONOMIC SOIL STEAM DISINFESTATION

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Precision Combustion, Inc. is developing a compact steam generator as the core of a tractor-pulled agricultural soil steaming disinfestation system. Our prototype 550 pound steam generator is sized to disinfest ~1 acre of soil every 12 hours, at costs similar to applications of methyl bromide or other fumigant packages. Our technology offers an economic and practical alternative to fumigant soil d ...

  3. Precision control of UV irradiance and ambient conditions to optimize the nutritional content, quality and consistency of indoor grown lettu

    SBC: METROCROPS, LLC            Topic: 812

    In the northeast there is an under-fulfilled year round demand for fresh, locally grown produce. The demand is partially measured by the steady growth (13% per year nationally) of farmers & #39; markets since 1995. Urban centers (cities) in the industrial northeast have a large inventory of under-utilized, structurally sound factory buildings of various sizes which are of little or no economic ...

  4. Development of Horticultural Containers from Anaerobically-digested Cow Manure

    SBC: Freund`s Farm, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Freunds Farm has developed an innovative process that transforms cow manure into valueadded, biodegradable containers for horticultural use, called CowPotsO. These CowPotsOturn manure from a burden into a profit center. Work performed to date has demonstrated that small quantities of pots can be molded from manure that offer the desired characteristics of biodegradability and decomposability, pene ...

  5. Processing of Poultry Manure for Fuel Gas Production

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agricultural activities produce large quantities of animal wastes in the form of manures. Currently, the accumulation of manures from animal husbandry operations is a serious threat to water supplies and challenges the capacity of existing landfills. However, this potential problem also represents an opportunity for remote biomass power production systems based on heating the manure in the absence ...

  6. Large Scale Production of Sex-Selected Embryos by In Vitro Fertilization in Cattle

    SBC: EVERGEN BIOTECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Embryos with predetermined sex will obviously double the female calving efficiency in dairy industry. The ultimate goal of the project is to development an efficient system for the large scale production of sex predetermined cattle embryos using several emerging technologies including sperm sorting by flow cytometry, IVF and rapid-cooling cryopreservation (vitrification) of embryos. Through Phase ...

  7. Partial Saturation Ebb and Flow Watering System for a Flooded Floor Greenhouse

    SBC: Green Growth Properties dba Geremia Greenhouse            Topic: N/A

    Sub irrigation combats the waste of water and fertilizer in traditional overhead watering systems used in greenhouses for production of potted ornamental plants. However, current ebb and flow watering systems achieve nearly complete saturation of the root medium for each watering cycle. There is no ability to restrict the water provided to the plants. This may decrease plant quality and facilitate ...

  8. Development of Monoclonal Antibodies and Elisa to TSV and IHHNV of Shrimp

    SBC: DiagXotics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Worldwide, shrimpculture is one of the largest sectors of aquaculture. The U.S. shrimpculture industry has a value of over $20 million, and the wild harvest of shrimp is valued at over $1 billion. Yet there are few resources available to help manage the health care needs of this economically important commodity. A preventative medicine approach to health care for shrimp is the most cost effecti ...

  9. IPNV Submit Vaccine: Optimization of Production and Vaccination of Salmonid Fish

    SBC: DiagXotics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNV) causes an economically significant, untreatable disease in young salmonid fish. A recombinant IPNV subunit vaccine (pTA1) has been developed and consists of a lysate of Escherichia coli cells that expressed IPNV VP2, NS and VP3 proteins. The Phase I research confirmed that the recombinant pTA1 vaccine was effective in laboratory scale trials and indica ...

  10. EXPRESSION OF FOREIGN GENES IN WHOLE INSECTS USING RECOMBINANT BACULOVIRUS

    SBC: Microgenesys Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BACULOVIRUSES HAVE GREAT POTENTIAL AS INSECT CONTROL AGENTS BY THEIR INHERENT SELECTIVITY AND SAFETY. RECOMBINANT BACUL OVIRUSES EXPRESSING FOREIGN GENES ENCODING FOR INSECTICIDAL PROTEINS SHOULD BE CONSIDERABLY MORE EFFECTIVE BIOLOGICAL CONTROL AGENTS THAN WILD-TYPE VIRUSES IN BOTH FIELD EFFICACYAND HOST RANGE. THE AIM OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCHIS TO INVESTINGATE THE BIOLOGY AND EFFECTS OR RECOMBIN ...
