  2. H2S and CH4 air quality monitor

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and methane (CH4) are two of the major pollutants associated with animal waste and sewage. Their release to the atmosphere has consequences both locally, where H2S can be present at toxic levels that influence human health and quality of life, and globally, where CH4 acts as a greenhouse gas to influence climate change. Southwest Sciences proposes to develop a compact, inexp ...

  7. Recreation Trail Motor Vehicle Barrier- Protecting Rural Environments and Providing Access to People Using Mobility Devices

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    Recreation trails are a key component of the social, economic and health of rural communities. People with mobility impairments are often excluded from trails, shared-use paths, parks and other public areas where barriers are erected to prevent access by motorized trail vehicles (MTVs), to control livestock or wildlife, as an access point in a fenced area, or for a variety of other reasons. Many p ...

  9. Selection and Testing of Recombinant CAV 2- Rabies Vaccine for Oral Immunization of Wildlife

    SBC: Molecular Targeting Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Extensive worldwide reservoirs of rabies virus (RV) in wildlife and stray dogs continue to pose a serious risk of lethal infection of humans and cause a high economic burden. Immunization of wildlife and stray dogs with live vaccines is the only effective method to control and eventually eliminate rabies in carnivore species worldwide. In this application we propose to select canine adenovirus typ ...

  10. A Simple Ethylene-Detecting Device to Determine Ripeness of Individual Apples In Orchard

    SBC: RediRipe LLC            Topic: N/A

    Economic losses due to inadequate ripeness detection in the orchard and post-harvest continue to plague the apple industry. It is anticipated that the in-orchard/packinghouse sensor approach will significantly reduce the waste/spoilage-to-edible-fruit ratio, thereby increasing fruit quality and availability and resultant consumer demand at the domestic retail level as well as in the export market. ...
