  1. A Miniature Non-Contact Rail Temperature Sensor

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 081FR2

    This SBIR project will develop a low cost sensor to obtain rail temperatures from a moving train. The two innovative parts of the proposed sensor are (1) a rugged four wavelength high frequency sensor that accurately measures the natural radiation emitted by the rails, and (2) an advanced algorithm that provides a emissivity compensated temperature from these measurements. The feasibility of the ...

  2. Public Rights-of-Way Assessment Instrumentation to Determine Accessibility

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: 081FH2

    City planners and engineers need detailed assessments of public rights-of-way to evaluate existing conditions, determine compliance with draft accessibility guidelines, and plan reconstruction projects. Current assessment methods are inadequate and inefficient due to the time and resources required. This project will develop an automated public rights-of-way assessment process and the measuremen ...

  3. Value-Added Multi-Purpose Processing Establishment using Renewable Energy for Local Foods Distribution Network

    SBC: THIS OLD FARM            Topic: 812

    Identification and Significance of the Problem or Opportunity: The meat processing infrastructure is declining and aging across the United States leaving small farms with limited poultry, natural pork, and ruminant processing options. Work to rehabilitate existing but aged processing establishments utilizing energy efficiencies and renewable energy design to increase the profitability is needed. B ...

  4. Low Cost Fuel Grade Ethanol

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    The membrane drying process for ethanol plants should be of great value in increasing capacity and/or reducing energy consumption for existing ethanol plants. We will manufacture modules of the novel membrane with a commercial partner. A pilot demonstration unit will be constructed and deployed at an actual ethanol plant for demonstrating the membrane process capabilities and advantages.

  5. Diversion From Land Disposal Of Nutrients Recovered From Non-MPP Processing Plant Wastewater To Value-Added Use In Multi-Spec. Feed Rations

    SBC: AGRI PROCESSING SERVICES, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Non-Meat and Poultry Product (Non-MPP) food processing plants manage their effluent to satisfy environmental regulations concerning waste discharge. Currently, many non-MPP plants mechanically screen out large pieces of organic material (biosolids) that are processed for use as livestock feed. However, minute biosolids in liquid suspension collected from the food plant's effluent are generally dis ...

  6. Modular Trellis System for Brambles

    SBC: Trellis Growing Systems            Topic: N/A

    Trellis installation is a major expense for establishing new commercial blackberry or raspberry (bramble) plantings. Research by the USDA and universities clearly demonstrates that by developing novel trellis designs and methods of manipulating bramble canes, costs of labor for cane pruning and training and winter injury can be reduced and hand-and mechanically-harvested efficiency, fruit quality ...
