  1. Ethanol Dual-Fuel Engine Retrofits to Displace Diesel Usage in Farm Equipment

    SBC: ClearFlame Engines, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Diesel engines are critical to the agriculture sector--and in many other applications--due to their strong performance and vaunted durability. However, despite their many benefits, these engines are tied to the dirty emissions and price volatility of Diesel fuel. This Diesel dependence puts pressure on manufacturers to meet increasingly stringent emissions standards, and forces users to accept inc ...

  4. SoldierBoost, Nutrient-Dense Soldier Food Bar Ration

    SBC: Systems & Materials Research Corporation            Topic: DLA163001

    Soldiers engaged in Sustained Operations can burn up to 6,000 kcal of energy per day, which cannot be compensated for by current rations - Meals, Ready-to-Eat and First Strike Rations only provide up to 3,750 kcal/day and 2,900 kcal/day, respectively. This energy debt is further aggravated by the fact that most soldiers "field strip" their rations, removing menu items that are undesirable, or that ...

  5. Point-of-Use Diagnostic Instrumentation for Plant Infectious Disease

    SBC: K2 Biomicrosystems Llc            Topic: 813

    SUMMARYThe primary objective of this SBIR Phase I project is the design, fabrication and validation of portable prototype instrumentation which will permit growers and other stakeholders in the agricultural community to rapidly and accurately diagnose plant infectious diseases, directly at the point of testing. Such infectious diseases, if incorrectly diagnosed and improperly treated, can result i ...

  6. A new class of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) autogenous vaccine produced in a novel porcine macrophage cell line

    SBC: APTIMMUNE BIOLOGICS, INC.            Topic: 83

    Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) virus first appeared in the United States of America in the late 1980's and causes a disease characterized by reproductive failure in sows and significant respiratory distress in growing and finishing swine. Being a major economic problem for the pork industry, the National Pork Board (NPB) considers the control and elimination of PRRS virus ...

  7. An Improved Release System for Ethylene Inhibitors to Invrease the Shelf-Life of Post-Harvest Agricultural Products

    SBC: Hazel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Each year in the United States, over $30B in produce goes to waste due to spoilage. Degradation of produce in inventories is a tax on agricultural production that reduces the overall productivity and resource efficiency of US agriculture. Less waste means that growers and shippers of produce end up with more dollars in their pocket, and that nutritious and high quality produce can make it to the c ...

  9. Upscaling and Optimization of Magnet to Magnet Recycling

    SBC: Urban Mining Company            Topic: DLA161003

    Neodymium-iron-boron rare-earth based magnets are key components of mobile phones, electric vehicles, wind-turbines and many critical US defense systems. Despite their importance, the US is completely reliant on imports from China for their supply. Future supply risk renders this situation untenable, yet re-establishing the supply chain for these magnets in the US could take two decades. Urban Min ...
