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. Commercialized Supercooling Technology for Subzero Nonfreezing Preservation of Fresh Foods

    SBC: JUN INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 85

    Jun Innovations has developed a proprietary supercooling technology that preserves perishable materials at below-freezing temperatures without the formation of ice crystals. Foods are maintained in their natural state for weeks with the same taste, texture, nutrition, and moisture content they had before being supercooled. This technology offers a radically new food preservation method for consume ...

  2. Formulated Sardines: a high-moisture, sustainable diet for fastidious feeding high-value marine fish

    SBC: Kampachi Farms, LLC            Topic: 87

    The current dependence of grouper and tuna aquaculture on "wet fish" diets poses challenges for the long term viability and scalability of such aquaculture in the U.S. and internationally. There is a recognized need for alternative feed formulations (those including agricultural oils and proteins, such as soybean meal, soy protein concentrate, wheat and corn gluten, canola, poultry and other anima ...

  3. Innovative Marketing of Hawaiian Pongee- Phase II

    SBC: Hawaii Fish Company            Topic: 812

    Pongee Channa sp. are an esteemed freshwater food fish in Asia, Hawaii, and domestic Asian seafood markets. Traditional customer preference is for a live product. However, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service banned the import and interstate transport of live Channidae in 2002. Therefore, the only options to market Hawaii-grown pongee outside of its established range on Oahu, Hawaii are as fresh chi ...

  4. Renewable Energy Aquaculture Aeration for Small and Mid-Size Farms

    SBC: Hawaii Fish Company            Topic: 812

    Low dissolved oxygen levels are the most frequent cause of catastrophic fish mortalities in aquaculture farming, resulting in substantial dollar losses of valuable aquaculture crops annually. To address this problem, the U.S. aquaculture industry most often uses floating paddlewheels and/or aspirating aerators for nightly or continuous aeration and circulation of aquafarm waters. However, power co ...

  5. An Integrated BioGas-Solar Dehydration System: Increasing Sustainability through Value-Added Agriculture

    SBC: OMNIGREEN RENEWABLES            Topic: 86

    Mandates for biofuels have resulted in the significant increase of biodiesel production in rural communities. Hawaii's Jatropha biodiesel production will produce nearly 650-700 kg of residues, consisting of Jatropha seedcake and fruit hulls for every metric ton of seeds harvested for oil production. In addition, the biodiesel conversion process will produce another 30-50 kg of crude glycerin, ...

  6. Aina Mo Soil Amendment Project: Organic compound from biodiesel glycerin co-product to control apple snail (P. canaliculata) on wetland taro

    SBC: PACIFIC BIODIESEL, INC.            Topic: 812

    Apple snail, (Pomacea canaliculata), a highly invasive pest affecting wetland crops in 18 countries including the U.S., is listed as one of the 100 Worst Global Invaders. One study showed that due to its voracious appetite, present value damage from the snail could cost Philippine rice production as much as 2.3 billion dollars annually. In Hawai`i, the apple snail invasion has reduced taro harvest ...

  7. Agaricus mushroom production utilizing local substrate materials

    SBC: OCR INC            Topic: 812

    Hawaii has year-round growing conditions and abundant agricultural land, yet it still imports more than 85% of its food. More than 2.3 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms, a mushroom family that includes Portobello and Crimini, were imported each year in 2006 and 2007. Currently, these mushrooms are not produced in Hawaii. Increasing the production of locally grown food products would not only re ...

  8. PRESERVATION OF BIOPROCESS ALGAE FOR CERTIFIED SEEDSTOCK

    SBC: Kuehnle AgroSystems Corporation            Topic: 88

    The scope of this SBIR project is to develop the Kuehnle AgroSystem's technical innovation of live algae preservation to provide room temperature storage options for microalgae that are preferred for specific aquaculture and biofuels applications. A major bottleneck in developing algae biomass for the aquaculture and cleantech industry is absence of quality bulk live algae product. Live algae conc ...

  9. Early Childhood Oral Health Initiative for Rural Families

    SBC: LYNN B WILSON            Topic: 86

    Early childhood dental caries represents the most common, and possibly the most commonly overlooked, chronic childhood disease in the United States. National health leaders recognize that families with young children living in rural communities face significantly more barriers to sustaining positive oral health than the general population. Low-income families in rural communities experience even g ...

  10. Microalgae As Renewable Biofactories: The Production of Biofuels and High Value Bioproducts

    SBC: Kuehnle AgroSystems Corporation            Topic: 88

    Microalgae have long been employed in basic research of plant genetics and physiology. Thus, continued research and development are essential to attain commercial viability of microalgae as a renewable source of industrial product feedstocks. This project addresses genetic solutions for algae as feedstock biofactories.
