  1. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 06NCERP1

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low-level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real-time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X-ray fluorescence inst ...

  2. Investigation of Solvent Toxicity in Bacterial Strains Involved in Butanol Production

    SBC: Integrated Genomics, Inc.            Topic: 06NCERD1

    Reduction in dependency on imported petroleum and the quest to identify renewable energy sources has led to a search for innovative biofuels derived from renewable biomass, which promise long-term reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Butanol is one possible biofuel. It is an industrial fuel that can be produced from crops using acetone-butanol (AB) fermentation by butanolagenic microbes, such a ...

  3. In-Soil Hatching and Propagation of Commercially Marketable Earthworm Cocoons

    SBC: Advanced Prairie, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The beneficial effects of earthworms on soil structure, chemistry, microbiology, and crop yield are well demonstrated. Advanced Prairie, Inc. has developed a method of harvesting and encapsulating earthworm cocoons to make them available for mass market distribution. A previous SBIR proposal demonstrated the storage (at least five months) and shipping viability of the encapsulated cocoons. The pr ...

  4. A HIGH EFFICIENCY RADIO-FREQUENCY VACUUM DRYER

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW RADIO-FREQUENCY VACUUM DRYER THAT UTILIZES AN OVERMODED RESONANT CAVITY TO COUPLE POWER TO WOOD. THE DEVICE WILL BE MUCH MORE ENERGY-EFFICIENT THAN CAPACITOR-PLATE DEVICES THAT ARE CURRENTLY IN USE. THE INCREASE IN ENERGY EFFICIENCY COMPARED TO CAPACITOR-PLATE DEVICES IS GREAT ENOUGH THAT THE INITIAL COST OF OUR PROPOSED DRYER WILL BE RECOVERED IN JUST A FEW YEA ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF AN ACOUSTIC TRANSDUCER AVALANCHE CONTROL SYSTEM

    SBC: Intersonics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SNOW AVALANCHES THREATEN LIFE, PROPERTY, FORESTS, AND TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS. AVALANCHE DESTRUCTION OF CRITICAL AREAS IS PREVENTED BY RELEASING SMALLER AVALANCHES UNDER CONTROLLED CONDITIONS. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE ACOUSTIC TRANSDUCER AVALANCHE CONTROL SYSTEM (ATACS), AN AVALANCHE CONTROL TECHNOLOGY USING A NON-EXPLOSIVE, LOW FREQUENCY ACOUSTIC METHOD TO RELEASE AVALANC ...

  7. A Business Model for Productive Successful Aging in Place in Rural Maine

    SBC: Lilliana Jodoin-Reitman, DBA Global Wellness            Topic: N/A

    By 2020, fully one quarter of Americans will be over 60. Some 77 million Baby Boomers ages 42 to 60 are just beginning to face this critical juncture in their lives. In Maine, the oldest state in the nation, some people, due to lack of planning, may leave their homes and enter assisted living facilities or nursing homes at a huge economic and social cost to themselves, their heirs and public resou ...

  8. Cost Effective Microalgae Production for Aquaculture

    SBC: MOOK SEA FARMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The high cost of producing microalgae as food for bivalves constrains the size to which large quantities of bivalve seed can be grown in controlled hatchery conditions prior to transfer into a nursery. Larger hatchery seed translates to larger juveniles planted in the fall, and dramatically improves yields at harvest. Based on preliminary bench-top studies conducted by Mook Sea Farm, the SBIR Phas ...

  9. FOREIGN MATERIAL DETECTION SYSTEM FOR FOOD ITEMS

    SBC: Omega International Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN ON-LINE X-RAY SYSTEM FOR DETECTING FOREIGN MATERIAL CONTAMINATION IN RAW, IN-PROCESS AND PACKAGED FOOD ITEMS. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WOULD DETECT VERY SMALL PIECES OF METAL, GLASS, BONE, ROCK, PLASTIC AND OTHER KINDS OF FOREIGN MATERIAL CONTAMINATION IN THE FOOD PRODUCTS AT FACTORY SPEED. THE PROPOSER HAS ALREADY PROVEN THE INITIAL FEASIBILITY OF SUCH A CONCEPT. THE PRESENT C ...

  10. BIOFOULING ON AQUACULTURE CROPS AND GEAR WITH A VIEW TO ERADICATION

    SBC: Pemaquid Oyster Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Biofouling is a costly and serious problem for all types of aquaculture and with certain types of shellfish, culture is highly vulnerable. Fouling organisms not only clog gear, stopping water flow and food delivery, they can also settle and grow on the cultured organisms themselves, causing reduced growth rates, decreased product quality and mortality. In response to increasing problems with biofo ...
