  2. New Process for Synthesis of Insect Pheromones

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is direct toward the development of a new, low-cost process for synthesizing insect pheromones. This process is based on the use of a novel, environmentally benign method using transition-metal catalysts, which should result in high yields of high-purity products. The use of pheromones for insect control has been commerically practiced for 20 years via a technique known as mating d ...

  3. Assessment of Quality of Poultry Sperm

    SBC: BIOPORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The poultry industry is dependent on efficient reproduction. Reproduction of broiler lines increasingly is a problem and already is limiting for turkeys. Currently, breeders or producers can identify males of low fertility only retrospectively after a costly failure. However, elimination of the 25-35% of males likely to be of lowest fertility before they were turned in with hens would increase ...

  4. An Improved Process for Production of Natural Carotene

    SBC: Chemica Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Beta-Carotene is widely used in the food industry as a food colorant and vitamin supplement, and it is rapidly gaining popularity for its reported anti-cancer potency. Medical studies indicates that Beta-carotene is preventative and sometimes terapeutic against malignant tumors, lung cancer, colon cancer, esophagus cancer, and skin cancer. It is the focus of this proposal to develop a new separa ...

  5. Molecular Mechanism for the Insecticidal Activity of Bacillus Thuringiensis

    SBC: Ecogen, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Bacillus thuringiensis crystal proteins are highly toxic to certain species of lepidopteran insects but are much less toxic to other lepidoteran species and usually have significantly lower toxicity to non-lepidopteran species. In addition, some lepidopteran species that initially were susceptible to Bacillus thuringiensis have developed resistance. Understanding the molecular mechanism for th ...

  7. Algorithm for Measuring Water Content and Salinity in Regions of High Salinity

    SBC: Flugstad Engineering            Topic: N/A

    Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) is becoming a popular method of measuring water content. By measuring the time it takes for a step-waveform to propagate down and back an open circuited transmission line, one can determine the dielectric constant of the media. Regression equations can then be used to determine water content from the dielectric constant. Problems occur, however, in regions of hig ...

  8. Forage-Based Agriculture on the Sloping, Highly Erodible Terrain in Northern Idaho: Implications for Rural Development

    SBC: G&k Enterprises/black Ram            Topic: N/A

    Agriculture and forestry are the primary economic engines of northern Idaho. Both industries are struggling. Agricultural revenues have been stagnant for almost 5 years, agricultural support and service industries have virtually disappeared from rural communities, and farmers have recently lost a major share of regional markets for barley and oats to Canadian products which benefit from transpor ...

  9. Recovery of Iron Oxides from Polluted Coal Mine Drainage

    SBC: HEDIN ENVIRONMENTAL INC            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I project will characterize iron oxide precipitates collected from wetlands constructed to treat polluted coal mine drainage in order to determine whether these wastes have commercial value as pigments or ion-exchange media. Chemical and physical characteristics of iron oxide samples collected from four wetlands constructed to treat polluted coal mine drainage will be compared to ...

  10. COMPUTATIONAL ANALYSIS OF VENTILATION SYSTEMS FOR LIVESTOCK BUILDINGS

    SBC: INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE ENVIRONMENT SURROUNDING CONFINED ANIMALS DIRECTLY AFFECTS THE PRODUCTIVITY OF THE LIVESTOCKINDUSTRY. A GOOD VENTILATION SYSTEM, WHICH CONTROLS THIS ENVIRONMENT, IS ESSENTIAL FOR MANTAINING THE HEALTH AND WELFARE OF ANIMALS AND WORKERS IN THE LIVESTOCK BUILDINGS. HOWEVER, THE DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT OF SUCH A SYSTEM IS A COMPLICATED PROCESS. IT INVOLVES OPTIMIZATION OF VARIOUS GOVERNING PARAMETER ...
