  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 ...

  2. Smart Sensor for Aquaculture Nitrogen Using Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: ENERTREX CORP.            Topic: 87

    The country increasingly seeks locally produced, healthy food. Shrimp can provide significantly to these desires while reducing dependence on imports and enabling creation of jobs in all strata of society.To realize these benefits, the cost of shrimp production needs to be reduced to meet the existing competitive market. The success of our project will bring high-technology at low cost to a key co ...

  3. Wireless Compatible Digital Train Line (WiDTL) for Passenger Type Vehicles in a Train Consist

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 151FR1

    The Next Generation Equipment Committee (NGEC) developed a standard for specifying the use of an Ethernet based digital train line (DTL) network to replace the COMM line for passenger trains. These specifications are PRIIA 305‐919 Digital Train Line Hardware and PRIIA 305‐920 Digital Train Line Software. The intent Is to eventually allow for the improvement of passenger train control. DTL spec ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Enhanced Membranes for Dewatering of Black Liquor

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 81

    Compact Membrane Systems (CMS) proposes to employ membrane systems for pressure-driven separation of water from black liquor to replace the first two stages of existing multiple-effect evaporators. This is a promising approach to considerably reduce the steam energy required for concentration. Membrane materials must withstand high temperature, high salinity and high pH conditions. Fouling of the ...

  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 ...

  8. Enhanced Membranes For Sweetening Of Manure Based Biogas

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    Each year over 1 billion tons of animal manure is produced in US and it can be a pollution source if not handled properly. "Anaerobic digestion" is an energy efficient way to dispose manure. Through this process manure is converted to biogas and digestate. The manure digestate can be used as fertilizer. Biogas is a mixture of ~60% CH4, ~40% CO2 and trace amounts of contaminant gasses such as H2S. ...

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

    SBC: Hazel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Nearly 50% of produce is wasted throughout the agricultural supply chain. A significant fraction of this loss is through produce senescence, deterioration with age. In almost all plants, senescence is accelerated by ethylene gas, a hormone that plants produce as they age or are damaged. For decades, 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) gas has been used to inhibit ethylene action in plants and produce ind ...

  10. Enhanced Membranes for Sweetening of Manure based BioGas

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    Every year over 1 billion tons of fresh animal manure is produced in US and it raises pollution concerns. "Anaerobic digestion" is an environmental friendly and energy efficient way to dispose animal manure. Animal manure is converted to biogas and digestate through this process. The animal manure digestate has a much less pollution potential than untreated animal manure and can be used as a chemi ...
