  1. 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. 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. Improved Agricultural Sustainability through Microbially Enhanced Nitrogen Fertilizer Use Efficiency and Yield

    SBC: ADVANCED BIOLOGICAL MARKETING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed phase II project focuses on an economically and environmentally important project, which is to develop and document efficacy of wheat seed treatments that will increase yields and enable a reduction in nitrogen fertilizer use in this crop. Nitrogen fertilizer not taken up by crops is readily leached into waterways as nitrates and nitrates that enhance algal blooms that, when they deco ...

  6. Phage mediated detection of Bacillus anthracis on deliberately contaminated fresh foods

    SBC: Guild Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The nations food supply is particularly vulnerable to a bioterrorist attack. Bacillus anthracis, the causative agent of anthrax, is a Category A pathogen that is considered a high priority biological weapon. Gastrointestinal anthrax is caused by the ingestion of B. anthracis contaminated foods or liquids. B. anthracis spores, which are the infectious form of the disease, are extremely resistant to ...

  7. A New Nano Based Real-Time Aflatoxin Detector Phase II

    SBC: SENSOR DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Aflatoxin was discovered in groundnut meal which killed over 10,000 turkeys in England. Poultry are extremely sensitive to aflatoxin B1 with turkeys being more sensitive than chickens. Later research discovered that poultry are the most susceptible food animal species to the toxic effects of aflatoxin. Based on epidemiological data and knowledge of liver biochemistry it is suggested that humans fa ...
