  1. Ammonia Removal and Recovery System Integrated with Anaerobic Digestion for Mitigating Air and Water Quality Impacts of Animal Operations

    SBC: AEB ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: N/A

    Concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) continue to experience every increasing pressure regarding nutrient overloads and air and water environmental concerns on their farms. Additionally the producers are subject to every growing and skyrocketing fuel and fertilizer costs. This USDA SBIR Phase I project aims to demonstrate an innovative technology that recovers ammonia nitrogen from CAFO a ...

  2. A Novel Sulfite Pretreatment Process (SPORL) for Efficient Biochemical Conversion Woody Biomass to Bioethanol


    Woody biomass is a very important feedstock for the future bioeconomy for the rural US for its availability in large quantities, ease in storage, and low cost for transportation. However, woody biomass, especially softwood, is the most difficult to convert biochemically to fermentable sugars due to its strong physical integrity and chemical recalcitrance. The goal of this project is to develop a c ...

  3. Beneficiation of Chipped and Shredded Woody Biomass

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Tens of millions of tons of prunings, land clearing debris, logging slash, and urban greenwood are chipped or ground each year as a means of volume reduction and disposal. Commingled chipped whole plant materials have little value other than as compost, mulch and direct combustion energy. Capture of clean wood fiber from commingled shredded and chipped wood will increase the fiber supply to compos ...

  4. Efficient Mobile Power Supply and Energy Reclamation for Linear-move and Center-pivot Irrigation Systems


    SITUATION/PROBLEM: In the U.S., manual-move irrigation (hand-lines and wheel-lines, ~ 70% efficient) is employed on 5 million acres and furrow/gravity irrigation (~55% efficient) is employed on 23 million acres. Much of these lands comprise high-value crops and/or parcels shaped other than square or circle. For example, California has 5.7 million gravity-irrigated acres, mostly high value crops. C ...

  5. Ammonia Sensor for CAFO Monitoring.

    SBC: PHOTONIC BIOSYSTEMS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Ammonia is difficult to measure, especially for the dusty environment and relatively high ammonia levels found in poultry concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFO's). Literature and discussions with operators suggest that its measurement and control is highly desirable with significant economic, health and regulatory impacts. A sensor with suitable sensitivity, range and durability would find ...

  6. Synergistic, Natural Compounds as Insecticides

    SBC: SUMMERDALE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Japanese beetle is a highly destructive pest of more than 400 plant species including fruits, vegetables, ornamentals, field and forage crops, and weeds. Since the first detection in the United States in a nursery near Riverton, New Jersey in 1916, it has spread to many states east of the Mississippi River (except Florida), as well as parts of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Ka ...

  7. Organic Acid Formulations for Wood Protection: Inhibition of Mold Fungi

    SBC: SUMMERDALE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Humans are exposed constantly to molds in the environment, both indoors and outdoors. Problems arise when the immune system is suppressed (HIV infection, cancer treatment), over-responsive (allergy) or when exposures are exceedingly high (irritation and mycotoxin effects). Many people are allergic to molds, and allergic responses include hay fever and asthma. Certain molds such as Stachybotrys cha ...

  8. High Performance Low Integration Cost Magnetometer System

    SBC: A&E INNOVATION            Topic: AF083218

    An innovative data collection and analysis approach is proposed to enable body mount magnetometers for space application. In order to achieve high accurate magnetic field measurement in space, the magnetometer has to be located in a âmagnetically cleanâ place, where the magnetic field from spacecraft is negligible. Usually, the magnetometers are placed on deployable booms, so that the field sens ...

  9. Accelerated Development of High-Performance Mo-Si-B-X Alloys via an Approach of Integrating Thermodynamic Modeling with Experimental Study

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: AF07T003

    The proposed study aims at accelerated development of Mo-Si-B-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf, Re, Mn) alloys with an optimized balance of properties, via an approach of integrating thermodynamic modeling with experimental study.   On the basis of the Mo-Si-B-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf) database developed in Phase I, a thermodynamic database of the Mo-Si-B-O-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf, Re, Mn) system will be developed using the Calp ...

  10. A Modeling Tool for Predicting the Durability of Environmental Barrier Coatings (EBC) for Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC)

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: AF083070

    CompuTherm, LLC proposes a pilot project to develop a modeling tool that can be used to assess the durability of environmental barrier coatings (EBCs) for ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) under combustion environment. The modeling tool includes a thermodynamic database for the gas phase, a thermodynamic database for the silicate system (EBCs), and a computer software package that deals with thermo ...
