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. Capacitive removal of PFOA and PFOS from Drinking Water


    Polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl compounds (PFCs) have been used commercially since the 1940’s due to their high level of chemical stability, almost frictionless surface or waterproofing characteristics. Elevated levels of PFCs have been linked to cancer and other health problems including reproductive and developmental risks. PFOA and PFOS are amongst the most prevalent of the PFCs with low l ...

  2. Advancing Over the Top Citrus Harvesting Equipment for Fresh Markets: Harvesting Arm Development

    SBC: GEO-SPIDER, INCORPORATED            Topic: 813

    Numerous challenges face the Florida and U.S. citrus industries, including global market pressure, urban and environmental pressures, labor issues, and emerging diseases and pests, thus underscoring the need for new production approaches. Over the last decade, over 200,000 acres of Florida citrus production has been lost due to the citrus canker eradication program and citrus greening known as HLB ...

  3. Development of a Prototype Electropenetrograph for Real-Time Recording of Tick Feeding Behavior on a Calf

    SBC: Dowell, Andrew M., INC.            Topic: 83

    Ticks are the most globally significant arthropod vectors of disease for agriculturally important animals, and a major obstacle to sustainable and profitable livestock production and food security. Tick-borne pathogens affect approximately ~80% of the global cattle population, costing the cattle industry $19 billion annually. Despite their economic importance, effective control measures are limite ...

  4. Rapid Molecular Lateral Flow Device for Tuna Species Identification

    SBC: APPLIED FOOD TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: 85

    Tuna species identification diagnostics are needed to prevent the mislabeling of tuna in commerce. Mislabeled tuna encourages economic fraud, compromises food safety, and hampers fisheries management efforts. Ranked as one of the world's most valuable commercial seafood, tuna are considered the most important and endangered fish in worldwide trade. According to NOAA statistics, the annual impo ...

  5. Leveraging Nematode Signals to Enhance Entomopathogenic Nematode Efficacy for Pest Control

    SBC: Pheronym, Inc.            Topic: 82

    The proposed project will test the feasibility of using nematode released factors to improve entomopathogenic nematodes' (EPNs) efficacy (ability to kill) in biological control. Broad-spectrum synthetic pesticides have adverse effects on the environment and human health. For example, approximately 26 million human poisonings and 220,000 deaths occur annually due to synthetic pesticides worldwi ...

  6. Development of a hormonal implant for small, less than 1kg, marine finfish broodstock to enhance reproduction

    SBC: Live Advantage Bait, LLC            Topic: 87

    One of the requirements of a sustainable aquaculture industry is the capacity to control reproduction in captivity and acquire high-quality eggs and sperm, however most captive fish experience some degree of reproductive dysfunction. To answer this problem, hormone administration has been developed as an effective method to induce maturation and obtain fertilized eggs. Although this technology has ...

  7. Optimization of Silkstream Pump for Sea Lice Removal

    SBC: LINDGREN-PITMAN, INC.            Topic: 87

    This project involves the optimization of a Silkstream pump for the removal of sea lice from salmon in the aquaculture industry. Currently, the most common treatments involve chemical treatment and/or the fallowing of pens which both come at a significant cost to the farmer. The use of chemicals such as Slice has also raised environmental concerns due to potential interactions with the natural env ...

  8. Accurate and Rapid Device for Tuna Species Identification

    SBC: APPLIED FOOD TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: 85

    In Phase I of this project, we will show "proof of concept" that we can develop a rapid method with end-point detection for tuna to differentiate between albacore tuna, and two common adulterants/substitutes for this species-- skipjack tuna and escolar. We propose to streamline the test procedure by eliminating the DNA extraction step (via a direct amplification technology); and replace traditiona ...

  9. Palmos- Environmental Landslide Monitoring And Detection For Rural Communities

    SBC: Palmos Co.            Topic: 86

    In the United States, landslides cause over $1 billion in damage and 50 deaths annually. Landslidesoccur in every state in the United States and the majority of these landslides occur in rural areas ofthe country. These events primarily affect the rural areas of the country and are becoming more frequent with the increase in extreme weather events due to climate change and variability. The propose ...

  10. Phosphorus Removal and Recovery through Newly Developed Adsorption Technology

    SBC: GREEN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 14NCER4A

    Commonly used water treatment approaches to mitigate phosphorus pollution and its consequences in small watersheds include the use of chemicals to precipitate phosphorus or algaecides to terminate algal growth. Both approaches require the addition of chemicals to the waterbodies resulting in biomass/sludge build-up, solid precipitates and/or potential toxicity from added metal salts. There is a hi ...
