  1. Development of Reliable, Economical Briquetting of Torrefied Forest Residue Without Binders to Produce Sturdy, Water Resistant Briquettes

    SBC: HM3 ENERGY, INC.            Topic: 81

    Unlike raw wood pellets, energy dense torrefied biomass pellets or briquettes share important traits with coal which make them a promising alternative clean fuel to use directly in coal plants. They are brittle (not fibrous, like raw pellets), so they can be pulverized just like coal before being fed into the coal boiler. They also have similar BTU content to coal and are water resistant, so they ...

  2. Operational SAR Forest Structure and Disturbance Metrics

    SBC: APPLIED GEOSOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: 81

    The goal of the SBIR is to "Operationalize multiscale Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) forest structure and disturbance metrics". The objectives are to develop 1.) operational forest structure and disturbance metrics derived from Synthetic Aperture Radar and 2.) mapping information services for rapid forest disturbance assessment. A set of practical questions to be answered at three demons ...

  3. Work Tool Innovation for Farm Land Management and Wildfire Abatement

    SBC: HILL MANUFACTURING, INC.            Topic: 812

    For rural farmers and ranchers with small and mid-sized operations who suffer losses in efficiency due to unproductive pastures and damage and property loss due to wild fires, the envisioned tree saw is an auxiliary tractor attachment with the potential to rapidly and safely remove large trees, brush, and undergrowth. Unlike current heavy and expensive attachments that require non-traditional farm ...

  4. Diagnostic Tools for Managing Vibriosis in Marine Shellfish Hatcheries

    SBC: MABDX INC.            Topic: 87

    World marine food farming production (aquaculture) is dependent on hatchery and nursery production of large quantities of high quality larvae and juvenile shellfish, shrimp and fish. Bacterial diseases, particularly vibriosis, are a major cause of mortality in hatcheries and nurseries and causelarge losses and great expense for fish and shellfish growers along the nation & #39;s coasts. Simple ...

  5. Novel lure for more sensitive monitoring of potato psyllid

    SBC: ALPHA SCENTS, INC.            Topic: 813

    The goal of this proposal is to develop host-plant attractants that Potato Psyllid (PP) utilize to find and colonize host plants. PP exhibits a marked preference for potato volatiles and trough feeding process changes composition of the volatile blend. Semiochemicals (host-plant volatiles) are commonly used to manipulate insect behaviors in IPM programs such as monitoring insect pest populations f ...

  6. Monitoring and attract and kill systems to control ambrosia beetles vectoring the laurel wilt disease in avocado and other Lauraceae.

    SBC: ALPHA SCENTS, INC.            Topic: 813

    Project Title:Monitoring and attract and kill systems to control ambrosia beetles vectoring the laurel wilt disease in avocado and other Lauraceae.Technical AbstractProduction of avocado in Florida is valued at $30 million a year, accounting for twelve percent of the national production. This industry consists of 7,500 acres and about 940 producers/handlers and thousands of employees. The redbay a ...

  7. De-Acidification of Feedstocks for Low Cost Biodiesel Production

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    The United States, led by the USDA (as well as the Department of Energy) has taken major initiatives to develop renewable energy sources. Development of these renewable energy sources is desirable based on (1) reduced production of greenhouse gases and (2) reduced dependence on the volatile supply of oil from abroad. One of the cornerstones of renewable energy is biofuels and more specifically bio ...

  8. Mannheimia haemolytica outer membrane vesicle-based vaccine for Shipping Fever in cattle

    SBC: Solidtech Animal Health, Inc.            Topic: 83

    "Shipping Fever" is the main cause of illness/death in beef cattle in North America, resulting in & gt;$500 million/year of losses due to treatment costs, poor weight gain, reduced carcass value and death. Mannheimia haemolyticabacteria causes the most serious form of shipping fever, causing severe, often fatal pneumonia. Because currently availableM. haemolytica vaccines are not eff ...

  9. Vegetable Oil Processing with Non-Porous Polymer Membranes

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 85

    Although conventional aqueous oil extraction which utilizes water as a solvent under atmospheric conditions has been around for a long time, it was not favored for large commercial operations because of its low oil extraction efficiency. Interest in aqueous extraction processes has been revived by increasing environmental concern about hexane which is the traditional solvent used by oilseed proces ...

  10. Physiologically Compatible Hemodialysis through Advanced Dialysate Regeneration

    SBC: Chemica Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The uremic syndrome is a disabling condition attributed to the progressive retention of solutes that would normally be excreted by the kidneys and which interact negatively with physiological systems/functions. These are broadly defined as uremic toxins. Hemodialysis treatment is prescribed for the majority of individuals in the final stages of renal failure. However, better dialysis options (leng ...
