The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. 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. Bee-friendly dust-free seed coating for pollinator health

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Pollinators, typically honey bees, are critical for marketable yields of around 90 crops, including apples, blueberries, cucumbers and almonds. Honey bees, however, have been under considerable pressure from Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), leading to unprecedented and unsustainable colony losses. Pesticide exposure, especially neonicotinoids in seed coating, is one key stressor causing the general ...

  2. Optimized shellfish aquaculture production barge

    SBC: Ward Aquafarms LLC            Topic: 87

    Shellfish aquaculture in the United States has been expanding rapidly; providing jobs, promoting local economies, and yielding sustainable protein sources for a continuously growing human population. However, industry growth is restricted due to several issues which all directly relate to being able to get the food (microalgae) to the shellfish in an efficient manner. The issue is not that there i ...

  3. FISHMEAL ALTERNATIVE FROM RENEWABLE FEEDSTOCK

    SBC: Sasya LLC            Topic: 87

    The demand for high-quality protein for human consumption is dramatically increasing due to increasing global population and the preference for high-protein diets. Aquaculture provides one of the most efficient sources of dietary protein. The high feed conversion ratio is significantly higher than for livestock. In order to sustain the rapid growth in aquaculture industry, having access to fishmea ...

  4. Wildfire Mobile Emergency Perimeter System

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: 81

    Incidents of unmanned aerial systesm (UAS) illegally operating in the restricted airspace around wildfires has been on the rise. The popularity of UAS is growing rapidly, and the threat to firefighters, public safety, and property is increasing. A rapidly deployable and reconfigurable solution that works in all types of terrain and under extreme conditions is needed to help authorities identify an ...

  6. Energy-Positive Wastewater Treatment and Reuse System For Agriculture Applications

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: 84

    The use of recycled water has never been more important than it is today, especially with California and the Western United States experiencing the worst drought in 500 years.To address the severe and persistent shortage of water,growers in California are increasingly looking to recycled water as a way to consistently meet their irrigation demands. The main challenge for water reuse in agriculture ...

  7. Industrial Relevant Microbial Electrochemical Reactor for Wastewater Processing

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: 84

    A new reactor technology is being developed that can process agricultural wastewaters economically while also creating a marketable bioproduct. The combined syngeries of efficiently processing wastewater while also creating a biofuel product for resale helps to economically treat wastewater with a positive energy balance.

  8. An eddy covariance system for simultaneous flux measurements of total reactive nitrogen, ammonia, and nitrogen oxides (NOx)

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Nitrogen balance plays a critical role in agricultural food security and biodiversity. While some nitrogen addition, such as fertilization, is highly beneficial to agriculture, too much can result in lower crop yields and plant loss. Air pollution can tip the nitrogen balance toward unhealthy soil and poor growing conditions, and affect a plant's ability to cope with drought. Understanding the ...

  9. Pulsed Electric Field Application to Aquaculture: Predator Control and Product Extraction

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 87

    This Phase II SBIR focuses on the application of Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) processing to the growth and extraction of microalgae and algal products. PEF processing uses short, high voltage electrical pulses to break cellular membranes (also referred to as electroporation or cell lysing). PEF has been applied across a range of applications, from non-thermal pasteurization of juices to wastewater ...
