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. Improve Competitiveness of Specialty Crop Production through a New Product Quality Verification Method

    SBC: Smart Vision Works International LLC            Topic: 813

    In order for America to remain competitive in the world market in agriculture production and processing it must continue to innovate and create technologies that decrease the cost of food production. If America can do so, it maintains the ability to produce high quality products. Sorting and grading is an expensive and time consuming part of agriculture production and decreasing its cost through t ...

  2. Novel Process for Production of Fatty Acids from Lignocellulosic Biomass

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 88

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will demonstrate techno-economic feasibility of a novel bioprocess to produce fatty acids from lignocellulosic biomass leading to commercialization. These fatty acids are primary components of several consumer products such as skincare, cosmetics, soaps, shampoos and vitamins. The proposed process utilizes metabolically engineered E. coli cu ...

  3. Anaerobic Production of biohydrogen from food and Agricultural waste

    SBC: HANSEN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL, LLC            Topic: 811

    Despite its clean and green nature when utilized in fuel cells and other devices, most hydrogen is currently produced primarily from non-renewable sources, such as natural gas, oil, and coal. Anaerobic digestion provides a potentially improved alternative to manufacturing hydrogen from petroleum and natural gas. Anaerobic digesters can produce hydrogen from inexpensive and renewable energy sources ...

  4. Large-Scale Production and Field Testing of Pelleted Fungal Inocula for Use in Fungal-Based Remediation of Contaminated Soil

    SBC: EarthFax Development Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Fungal inocula are a critical and economically-significant component of a technology that exploits the abilities of white-rot wood-decay fungi to degrade pollutants in soil. This technology involves mixing of a fungal inoculum with contaminated soil and placing this mixture in an aerated pile. Current standard inoculum production techniques are expensive, involving the field ...

  5. COMPONENTS OF PARASITIC WASP VENOMS USEFUL FOR CONTROL OF INSECT PESTS

    SBC: Natural Products Research,            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE A PHASE I PROGRAM TO EVALUATE THE INSECTICIDAL PROPERTIES AND COMPONENTS OF CERTAIN PARASITIC WASP VENOMS. MOST INSECTS, INCLUDING MOST IMPORTANT CROP PESTS. ARE ATTACKED BY ONE OR MORE SPECIES OF PARASITIC WASPS. THE VENOMS OF PARASITIC WASPS ARE KNOWN TO HAVE A WIDE RANGE OF EFFECTS ON THEIR HOSTS, INCLUDING PARALYSIS, GROWTH REGULATION, AND SUPPRESSION OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM. THE BASE ...

  6. H-Mutant Phage Control of Harmful Plant Bacteria

    SBC: Agriphi, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Bacterial plant diseases of economically important crops are difficult to control. Chemicals used to treat bacterial plant diseases cannot only alter soil flora and auna, but ar unreliable for preventive control when environmental conditions favor growth of plant pathogenic bacteria. This research is directed toward development of an effective control for bacterial plant diseases using phages wh ...

  7. SUPERCRITICAL FLUID EXTRACTION AND ANALYSIS OF RESIDUES IN MEATS

    SBC: Lee Scientific Inc            Topic: N/A

    ANALYTICAL METHODS FOR DETECTING PESTICIDES, ANTIBOIOTICS, AND METABOLIC PRODUCTS IN MEAT PRODUCTS ARE TEDIOUS AND TIME-CONSUMING. THIS STUDY WILL EVALUATE SUPERCRITICAL FLUID EXTRACTION AND CHROMATOGRAPHIC TECHNIQUES FOR ANALYSIS OF THESE COMPOUNDS WHICH MAY BE POLAR, THERMALLY UNSTABLE, OR OTHERWISE INTRACTABLE TO OTHER METHODS. IN PHASE I, WE WILL DEMONSTRATE ANALYSIS OF RESIDUES BY SFC; DEMONS ...

  8. INOCULATED TRANSFER PLUG FOR MASS PRODUCTION OF TISSUE CULTURED TREES.

    SBC: Native Plants Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE TRANSFER OF TISSUE CULTUIRED PLANTS FROM IN VITRO TO OPEN GREENHOUSE ENVIRONMENTS IS FREQUENTLY A MULTI-STAGED, LABOR INTENSIVE PROCESS THAT CAN RAISE PRODUCTION COSTS TO COMMERCIALLY PROHIBITIVE LEVELS. RESEARCH IS UNDERWAY TO TEST THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A CONSOLIDATED, COST- EFFECTIVETRANSFER PLUG SYSTEM THAT WILL ALLOW PLANTS TO BE TRANSFERRED, ROOTED, INOCULATED WITH BENEFICIAL MYCO ...

  9. Improve Competitiveness of Specialty Crop Production through a New Product Quality Verification Method

    SBC: SMART VISION WORKS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Agricultural sorting and grading is most commonly preformed primarily through the use of human resources. Farm workers sort crops by hand through visual inspection. This process is expensive and highly subjective. In addition the labor force is susceptible to human error which can impact the quality of the resulting data. The outcome of this project will be to increase efficiencies in the grading ...

  10. Disruptive Transport/Coalescing Filtration Technology for Lipid Collection from Dilute Cultivated Algal Suspension

    SBC: Heightened Technologies            Topic: 88

    A sustainable supply of renewable biofuel will contribute to the Nation's energy security. Algal biomass is seen as having potential to be a significant source of renewable bioenergy. Microalgae-derived biofuel provides a high oil productivity with a smaller land footprint than terrestrial biofuel crops. It captures carbon dioxide and can grow on marginal lands or with salty aquifer water or w ...
