  1. Farmhand Foods: An Innovative Food Hub Creating Market Access for Small and Mid-Sized Livestock Producers

    SBC: FIRSTHAND FOODS            Topic: 812

    Most small and mid-scale livestock producers have been unable to take advantage of growing consumer demand for premium, all-natural, locally-raised meats, especially through wholesale channels. This relates to a host of factors, including the vertically-integrated nature of existing meat supply chains, constraints surrounding slaughter and processing capacity, and the specific demands of wholesale ...

  2. Wireless Sensor (WISER) Track-and-Trace: Autonomous, Cost-effective, Item-Level Food Safety from Field to Fork, Phase II

    SBC: WISER Systems, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Innovation in perishable foodstuff track-and-trace is of critical importance to cost and time-sensitive customers such as the food industry where contamination and spoilage are of concern, safety and security are paramount, and counterfeit and bio-terrorism prevention are urgent priorities. The proposed research would evaluate the feasibility of a low cost, highly accurate track and trace supply c ...

  3. Ambient Temperature Oxidation Catalyst for Ethylene Control in Fresh Produce Containers

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The respiration of fresh fruits and vegetables (FF & amp;V) converts oxygen from the surrounding air into carbon dioxide, moisture and ethylene. While ethylene is used under controlled conditions as a ripening agent, the presence of even small amounts of ethylene gas in shipping and storage containers causes most fresh produce to deteriorate much faster, potentially spoiling it before it reach ...

  4. Genome- Wide Association Studies of Root System Architecture Governing Agronomic Productivity in Sorghum

    SBC: GRASSROOTS BIOTECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 82

    Sorghum is a major crop for food, feed and industrial processes in the US and on the global market. It is a particularly relevant crop under the current pressures of climate change and food security because it is adapted to cultivation under low water and nutrient conditions. However, compared to other major crops, sorghum productivity is relatively low, and historic increases in sorghum yield hav ...

  5. A New Renewable Polymer from Bio Oil

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 88

    This project will develop a catalytic process to manufacture a new renewable and degradable bio-plastic that could be used to replace polyethylene in many applications, including those that constitute a large part of land and ocean litter such as bags, food packaging and disposable tableware.

  6. A Regenerable Sorbent for Deep Desulfurization of Alpha Pinene

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 81

    The production of turpentine in the U.S. exceeded 301,000 tons in 2004 (Romney 2004) and the production of resin acids exceeded 800,000 ton in 2003 (Romney 2004), which also includes the production from directly tapping trees (e.g., gum turpentine, gum rosin). There is growing demand for bio-plastics (non-petroleum derived polymers); for example Pepsi announced it will be using bio-plastic bottles ...

  7. Agronomic, environmental, and economic evaluation of cyanobacterial bio-fertilizer for small and mid-size farms growing high-value crops

    SBC: THIN AIR NITROGEN SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: 812

    Modern agriculture is highly dependent on nitrogen (N) fertilization to maintain high yields and profitability. In organic agriculture, cover crops and bulky organic amendments supply N; transport costs can be prohibitive, and energy used in transport is substantial. In conventional agriculture, industrial N fixation uses natural gas, high temperatures, and high pressures to convert atmospheric N ...

  8. Harnessing Clean River Energy with the RivGen Power System to Replace and Offset Diesel Fuel Use by Rural Communities

    SBC: ORPC ALASKA, LLC            Topic: 86

    This project will make hydrokinetic river energy, a completely renewable resource, into an economical source of clean power for river communities. ORPC will accomplish this by optimizing the prototype RivGen Power System design for lower speed river currents that are prvalent throughout the world. The RivGen Power System generates zero-emission electricity from river currents using no fossil fuels ...

  9. Dynamic Narrative Generation Software To Improve Social And Behavioral School Readiness Skills Needed For The Successful Transition To Grade School

    SBC: 3-C Institute for Social Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of a web-based intervention for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students to prepare for the transition to grade school. The product will support students as they create stories using a step-by-step scripted interactive process. The stories will focus on skills that are related to school readiness, such as self-regulation, positive behaviors with peers, ...

  10. Hall Of Heroes: An Interactive Social Tutoring System To Improve And Measure Social Goals For Students In Preparation For Transition To Middle School

    SBC: 3-C Institute for Social Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Hall of Heroes will be a web-based game for fifth graders to engage with pedagogical agents (animated life-like characters) to solve tailored social problem solving tasks and build social skills to use in challenging situations. Instructional content will focus on six core Social Skill Units (Cooperation, Communication, Emotion Regulation, Empathy, Impulse Control, and Social Initiation) based on ...
