  2. Filters to Provide Potable Water from As-Contaminated Waters

    SBC: CHK GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the recent EPA ruling, published in the Federal Register (January 22, 2001), to lower the As levels in drinking waters from the current Maximum Contaminants levels (MCL) of 50 ppb to 10 ppb. Furthermore, it has reported that 2,300 groundwater systems in small communities ranging from 25 to 500 (which make up 67% of the groundwater systems) will be out of compliance; whereas ...

  3. Development of a Closed Recirculating Viral-Pathogen Free Postlarvae Production Center for Native Species

    SBC: Lone Star Farm            Topic: N/A

    Increased restrictions on wild live-bait shrimp catches combined with significant annual increases in demand suggest that the supply problem of this industry will continue if no alternative source of live bait shrimp is established. The major obstacles in the development of the farm-raised live bait shrimp industry are the need for domesticated pathogen-free postlarvae (PL), the lack of reliable m ...

  4. Use of Plant Extracts as Environmentally Benign Corrosion Inhibitors

    SBC: DACCO SCI, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DACCO SCI, INC., proposes a Phase II SBIR program to develop a corrosion inhibitor system using extracts from tobacco plants. The Phase I results show the extract to be very effective in preventing corrosion of steel and aluminum either individually or when coupled with dissimilar metals. Under many conditions, the tobacco extract performs as good as or better than chromates, which have been the c ...

  5. Automated Vision for Sex Separation of Poultry Chicks


    Recognition and separation on newly-hatched poultry chicks by sex require intensive human labor in broiler hatchery operations. Segregation of chicks by gender and grow-out in gender specific management schemes offer significant benefits to the broiler industry. This project will develop an automated online vision inspection system to recognize the sex of baby chicks and separate them into differe ...

  7. Application of Frost Prevention in Food Processing Equipment

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Thermal and Environmental Concepts, Inc. proposes to utilize electrohydrodynamic (EHD) technology to reduce the amount of frost that forms on cold plates in food freezers. The defrost cycle consumes about 5-15% of the energy to operate an industrial food freezer. During Phase I of our project, we used EHD technology to reduce frost mass by 35% and frost height by as mush as 65% under cert ...

  8. The Expression of the Sweet Protein Brazzein in Maize

    SBC: Applied Biotechnology Institute, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Brazzein is a sweet plant protein recently discovered at the University of Wisconsin. It is the subject of four issued U.S. patents. The protein is 500 to 2000 times sweeter than sucrose and has the functional characteristics, such as taste and stability, required to be a leading commercial sweetener. Expression of the Brazzein gene in maize should yield the equivalent ¿ ton of sugar per ton of m ...

  10. MEMS Biosensor for In Situ Drinking Water Analysis

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    The occurrence of causative agents such as Cryptosporidium parvum and other pathogens in water supplies presents a critical issue. Transmitted through water and animals, these organisms provide a reservoir of infection, which results in the excretion of the environmentally stable cysts or oocysts that are impervious to inactivation by many drinking water disinfectants. Cryptosporidium infections a ...
