  1. Enhancing Rural Access to Capital Through Development of a Local Crowdfunding Incubator

    SBC: LOCAL CROWD, LLC, THE            Topic: 86

    Strong, sustainable rural communities are essential to creating an economy "built to last that rewards hard work and responsibility."1 These communities supply our food, fiber, and energy, safeguard our natural resources, and are essential in the development of science and innovation. What do communities need to stay economically healthy in order to provide these goods and services? According to a ...

  2. Development and Evaluation of Continuous Biomass Torrefaction and Densification Process for Commercial Briquette Production

    SBC: HM3 ENERGY, INC.            Topic: 81

    Successful use of energy dense torrefied biomass to produce drop-in coal replacement fuel has proved difficult for two reasons: 1) overheating of dies during densification, and 2) inability to produce water-resistant pellets. As a result, most torrefaction companies use a binder to reduce the die friction and/or to make densified product water resistant. Also, the majority of torrefaction companie ...

  3. Design Combined Effects Explosives (CEX) Using Numerical Simulations


    Combustion Research and Flow Technology, Inc. (CRAFT Tech) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) have teamed up to provide DTRA with an innovative approach to develop new combined effects explosives (CEX) formulations. CEX represent a class of recently-developed aluminized explosives seeking to provide the performance of both (i) high-energy explosives and (ii) high-blast explo ...

  4. Enhanced Stability and Penetration Depth of Deep Earth Penetrators

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA06009

    DTRA and other DoD agencies are currently seeking earth penetrators with higher efficiency for reaching deeply buried targets. Current penetrator materials and designs suffer from high levels of frictional drag, unbalanced resistance due to lateral forces and localized melting of the warhead leading to shape change and further instability. General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) has developed a method for en ...

  5. Q-Trap: In-transit detection of bioinvasive insects in intermodal shipping containers.

    SBC: APTIV            Topic: N/A

    This sensitive insect sensor will run 24 hours per day, every day that cargo is in transit, attracting insects to a containment surface where they remain for immediate detection and identification when inspectors gain entry to the container. Flying insects will be waiting, ready to be counted on arrival, rather than hidden within the cargo. An increase in the availability, timeliness, accuracy and ...

  6. Converting Pacific Whiting Carcass Waste to Hydrolyzed, High Protein Fish Meal

    SBC: Bio-Oregon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The largest groundfish resource for Oregon commercial fisherman is Pacific whiting (Merluccius productus). This fishery is economically important to many rural, coastal communities and in 2000 over 60,000 metric tons of whiting were delivered to Oregon shore-based processors. Processing Pacific whiting generates very large amounts of carcass waste. Over 70 percent of the landed weight of fish is d ...

  7. Investigative Asphaltic Concrete Design Using Coal-Fired Power Plant Bottom Ash

    SBC: Consolidated Engineers and Materials Testing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A major concern for coal-fired power plants throughout the nation is disposal of bottom ash. This by- product of coal combustion is produced in large quantities and disposal is costly. Presently bottom ash is disposed of in landfills throughout the nation. Landfilling is not an efficient and environmentally feasible method of disposal. Phase I - Laboratory research utilizing bottom ash as a fine a ...

  8. Recovery and Recycling of Plant Polyphenols and Water from Spent Tanning Liquor

    SBC: E.H. Hall Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project involves the development of a first-of-its-kind method for fractionation and recovery of industrial viable plant polyphenol material from spent tanning liquor (a.k.a. used color bath), a waste byproduct from the vegetable tanning and chrome retanning industry. Using a newly developed proprietary process currently being submitted for a provisional patent, a pilot facility will be built ...

  9. An Advanced Information System for Timely Assessments of International Crop Market Opportunities

    SBC: GDA CORP            Topic: N/A

    Situation or Problem In order to provide timely and reliable assessments of the global crop market, it is necessary to move from limited, in situ crop assessments to operational crop monitoring on regional and global scales with multi-temporal remotely sensed (RS) data. Due to timeliness requirements and large volumes of imagery needed for operational agricultural monitoring, it is important that ...

  10. Management of Shoot Boring Moths from Genus Rhyacionia and Eucosma with Attract and Kill Technology

    SBC: IPM Development Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IPM Technologies Phase I research proves technical feasibility for novel and patented attract & kill formulations (Last CallTM) targeting European pine shoot moth, Rhyacionia buoliana, and Western pine shoot borer, Eucosma sonomana in pine plantations, tree nurseries, and Christmas tree farms. In the U.S., R. buoliana infestations can limit growth rate and lumber value in commercial and ornamental ...
