  1. Scale up and commercialization of high performance biocomposite structures

    SBC: Grow Plastics LLC            Topic: 88

    Grow Plastics has a technology that has been demonstrated to generate sandwich core structures in thermoplastic products. This efficient structure allows the generation of plastic products which are equivalent in strength to solid products, yet use 1/3 of the material. This substantial material reduction allows the production of parts that are lower environmental impact (due to source reduction) a ...

  2. Tick Surveillance and Mass Capture Trap

    SBC: BanfieldBio Inc.            Topic: 83

    To this date there are no commercially available tick traps. A simple tick trap will provide a method for detection of ticks that users can use to make informed decisions about timing appropriate pesticide applications, thus minimizing total pesticide use. Additionally, the traps can be deployed to mass-capture ticks, so that the devices can provide a pesticide-free intervention for controlling ti ...

  3. Biodegradable Lubricants from Renewable Feedstocks

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 88

    Current agriculture and off-road equipment requires the use of lubricants to ensure efficient operation of integral hydraulic and gear driven systems. The lubricants, either oils or greases, aid in reducing friction, dissipating heat, prevent oxidation, and seal of water and debris from vital areas of the equipment. During operation, equipment may have slight leaks or suffer catastrophic failures ...

  4. A Thermal Distillation Process for Expanding Water Resources

    SBC: AIL Research, Inc            Topic: 84

    Most of the world's freshwater usage--as high as 70%--goes to agriculture. Unfortunately, in many of the country's major farming regions secure sources of agriculture water are threatened: freshwater aquifers are being over pumped, coastal saltwater intrusion is tainting freshwater supplies, agricultural run-off is dumping nitrates into the environment, and severe droughts are periodically ...

  5. Spirulina-based oral vaccine for infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV) in farmed salmonid fish

    SBC: Lumen Bioscience, Inc.            Topic: 87

    Non-Technical SummaryAquaculture is the fastest growing segment of the global food industry and plays an increasingly important role in feeding the world's population. Intensive aquaculture using increased stocking densities, compressed rearing cycles, monocultures, antibiotics, and other strategies aimed at efficient protein production has been complicated by outbreaks of known and newly emer ...

  6. Mill Development Model Development and Testing

    SBC: Innovative Natural Resource Solutions, LLC            Topic: 86

    INRS and MDP will collaborate to build an analytical model that demonstrates the probability of success - and opportunities for enhancement - for the redevelopment of idled industrial assets. This model will be developed and refined using the former pulp and paper mill in Old Town, ME., and data supplied by multiple redevelopment efforts elsewhere in the State of Maine. Based upon learnings and ex ...

  7. Vegetable oil based gel materials for cosmetic, toiletry, and candle markets

    SBC: APPLECHEM INC            Topic: N/A

    As a nation, we are faced with multiple challenges from global climate warming, rapid depletion of fossil oil, a strong desire to become independent from foreign oils, and a moral obligation to preserve our environment for future generations. In response to these challenges, many consumers have changed their purchasing behavior, preferring bio-based products over fossil-based products with a willi ...

  8. The Development of an Environmentally Compliant and Cost Effective On-Site Animal Manure Management Composting Technology

    SBC: ENGINEERED COMPOST SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    Animal Manure Management is a major challenge to dairies and CAFO's with respect to efficient resource use, farm economics and environmental impacts. Composting is an established process for converting animal manure into other value-added products such as soil amendment and animal bedding material. However, current agricultural composting practices do not generally address increasingly stringent a ...

  9. Topic 8.8:Biofuels, Exelus BTL Process

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project proposes a new approach to making liquid fuels from cellulosic biomass sources (a Biomass-to-Liquids or "BTL" process) that would significantly reduce the cost and complexity of production. The project uses innovative chemistry and reactor designs to enhance efficiency, selectivity, and reduce operating condition severity. Phase I aims to demonstrate process feasibility by determ ...

  10. Beneficiation of Chipped and Shredded Woody Biomass

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Our firm has been cooperating with engineers and scientists to develop materials that can be made from shredded woody debris. Field work during those projects put us in contact with many contractors and community-based organizations who were frustrated with the lack of markets for "chipped" woody biomass. We found that most community-based wildfire protection program leaders were unaware of the qu ...
