  1. Catalytic Ethylene Removal

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Fresh fruit, vegetables, and flowers are transported and stored in refrigerated containers. As the produce ripens, ethylene gas is produced, which further ripens the product and can lead to premature spoilage. Most fruits and vegetables emit ethylene gas which promotes ripening. Certain species, such as apples and bananas, produce more ethylene than others. Elevated ethylene levels can significant ...

  2. Genes that impact sorghum grain, sugar, and biomass yield.

    SBC: EG CROP SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of the proposed project is to improve the performance and economic utility of sorghum as a feedstock for ethanol production. High productivity sorghum as an ethanol feedstock will benefit the environment by reducing greenhouse gases and will benefit rural areas of the U.S. by stimulating local production of a high-value crop and associated ethanol refineries. Evolutionary Genomics, Inc. h ...

  3. Developing a Molecular-Assisted Hybridization Strategy for the Improvement of the Quality of Poplar Biomass for The United States` Bio-Fuels

    SBC: GREENWOOD RESOURCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Highly productive, third-rotation commercial plantations have been successfully managed in the United States by the pulp and paper, timber, and the environmental-remediation industries for more than 40 years with great success in terms of wood yields and job creation. The success of the poplar plantation industry has consistently been shown to be dependent the propagation of elite varieties that h ...

  4. Lipid-based ELISA test for detection of dairy cattle with Johne`s disease

    SBC: ECKSTEIN DIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Johne?s disease (JD) is a chronic granulomatous inflammation of the intestine in domestic and wild ruminants usually resulting after along incubation period in constant diarrhea with tremendous weight and ultimately death. This disease is caused by the intracellular pathogen Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP). Johne?s disease currently ranks as one of the most costly infectious ...

  5. High-Efficiency Axial Flow Pump Development for Use in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems

    SBC: Multi-duti Manufacturing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will enhance economic opportunities for agricultural producers by significantly reducing operating costs at aquaculture facilities. This is especially true for rural aquaculturists who do not have the capital of an ADM-size conglomerate. The ability for American fish farmers to compete internationally improves the safety of the nations food supply by allowing FDA oversight of ...

  6. Desulfurization of Biogas Derived from Animal Manure

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TDA is developing a cost effective and flexible desulfurization technology to clean-up biogas generated from waste streams fuels that allow its use in highly efficient fuel cell-based combined heat and power systems. Better and efficient use of these under-utilized biowastes could replace major amounts of natural gas to reduce the U.S. dependence on foreign energy resources consumption of hydrocar ...

  7. C02/Water Microemulsion Fire Suppression in Dry Bays

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF083250

    Fires in dry bays of military aircraft present a significant hazard that must be addressed with advanced fire suppression systems. The USAF is interested in concepts that do not require power or active sensing of fire for proper operation. ADA Technologies, Inc. has been developing fine water mist fire suppression technology for the past 10 years, and proposes a solution for this problem that inco ...

  8. Autonomous Nonbattery Wireless Strain Gage for Structural Health Testing and Monitoring in Extreme Environments

    SBC: Albido Corporation            Topic: AF08BT01

    There is a need to monitor the structural health of aerospace components operating in extreme temperatures ranges (e.g. -60 to +300C) and with high accelerations. Ideally the sensors employed for this task should be passive (i.e. not powered through batteries), permanently placed on the critical components and transmit the relevant data to a remote data processing center wirelessly.  Albido is pr ...

  9. Protecting Polymers from the Natural Space Environment with Films Grown Using Atomic Layer Deposition

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: AF07T011

    Polymers in space are subjected to various threats including hyperthermal oxygen atoms, UV and VUV photons, and ions.  These threats can degrade the polymer and lead to static charge accumulation.  This Phase II proposal will build on the Phase I work which demonstrated that inorganic films grown by atomic layer deposition (ALD) can protect polymers such as Kapton, Teflon and PMMA.  Al2O3 ALD f ...

  10. Advanced Electronic Cooling Technologies

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: AF083222

    Aqwest proposes to develop an advanced thermal management for cooling of electronic components using a variable conductance heat sink (VCHS) offering unparalleled capabilities in high-heat flux handling and temperature control. The project will produce a cooling system with the following benefits to wide band gap amplifiers and high-power laser diodes (HPLD): 1) Heat flux handling > 1200 W/cm2 2) ...
