Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Self-Propelled Grain Cart to Increase Yield and Efficiency and Decrease Soil Compaction

    SBC: GS Engineering Inc.            Topic: 813

    Autonomous Vehicle Regulation:The time is ripe for introducing Autonomous Vehicles (AV) to the agricultural market. Michigan is the nation's leader in AV regulations, having passed 5 laws regulating AV operation in 2015 and 2016. On December 9, 2016 Governor Snyder signed into law PA 332 which allows for autonomous operation on any Michigan public road at any time and for any purpose without a ...

  2. Ultra-High Efficiency Ethylene Scrubber to Reduce Cold Storage Costs of Produce

    SBC: Sonata Scientific            Topic: 813

    The importance of improving postharvest handling can be understood in terms of the primary impact of poor postharvest care--food loss. Technologies for improving postharvest handling focus on extending the shelf life of the fruit or vegetable while maintaining or improving upon the quality of the produce. A major achievement in prolonging produce storage life has been the implementation of cold st ...

  3. A Milk-Based MicroRNA Assay to Stratify BLV Infectiousness in Dairy Cattle

    SBC: Northstar Cooperative, Inc.            Topic: 83

    Milk samples are a rich matrix of diagnostically relevant biomarkers that capture the acute physiology of the dairy cow. Almost all serological ELISAs are applicable in milk and, as forensic technologies continue to become a superior diagnostic tool in the dairy industry, the use of genetic markers in milk are becoming the forefront of dairy molecular diagnostics. Established national DHI sampling ...

  4. Nitrate and Phosphate Biosensor for Handheld Monitoring of Water, Soil and Crops

    SBC: THE NITRATE ELIMINATION CO INC            Topic: 84

    NECi proposes to develop a low cost, handheld device similar in form and function to the glucose meters used by diabetics, but for measurement of the plant nutrients nitrate and phosphate. The inexpensive meter will use disposable sensor strips. Sensing is based on immobilized enzyme films "printed" onto the electrode material of the sensor strips. Recombinant enzymes are the sensing agents: nitra ...

  5. Development of rapid, point-of-use dry chemistry dip-stick assays for food quality. Phase II work will focus on completion of the development of a rapid test for total polar compounds in frying oils.

    SBC: OXFORD BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 85

    Deep-frying is a very popular cooking technique that is used worldwide. Deep-frying gives a crispy texture to food and creates savory flavors. Since it is one of the costlier kitchen commodities, frying oil is typically reused several times before being discarded. Using the oil for long periods of time is bad for the oil, causing it to degrade quickly, depending on the type of food being fried, te ...

  6. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: Total Quality Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...

  7. Development of rapid, point-of-use dry chemistry dip-stick assays for food quality.

    SBC: OXFORD BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 85

    Oils and fats are essential nutrients for humans, providing fatty acids necessary for good health as well as being concentrated sources of calories. Fats enhance the taste, texture, and mouthfeel of many foods, and are functionally required in preparing a variety of food products. Frying in oil has been used as a cooking method for over 3,500 years, and has remained a popular way to prepare meals ...

  8. Novel Adsorbent Materials for Wastewater Treatment

    SBC: Novoreach Technologies LLC            Topic: 81

    With increasing global industrialization, hazardous pollutants such as pesticides, organic chemicals, and heavy metals are being produced in greater quantities by chemical, agricultural, pharmaceutical, textile, and many other industries. Since these pollutants pose serious environmental and health threats, they need to be removed from waste streams such as wastewater before it can be discharged i ...

  9. Genetically Enhanced Nitrogen Fixation with Algae Biofilms

    SBC: Fulcrum Bioscience, LLC            Topic: 87

    This project will develop an algae-base nitrogen fixation process for commercial ammonia production for the agronomy market. This process operates under standard conditions. The technology utilizes a whole-cell mutant algae strain grown on an electrode surface and takes advantage of enzymatic pathways to make ammonia at standard conditions. The primary inputs are electricity and water. Compared to ...

  10. Disruptive Transport/Coalescing Filtration Technology for Lipid Collection from Dilute Cultivated Algal Suspension

    SBC: Heightened Technologies            Topic: 88

    A sustainable supply of renewable biofuel will contribute to the Nation's energy security. Algal biomass is seen as having potential to be a significant source of renewable bioenergy. Microalgae-derived biofuel provides a high oil productivity with a smaller land footprint than terrestrial biofuel crops. It captures carbon dioxide and can grow on marginal lands or with salty aquifer water or w ...
