  1. Enhanced Radiation Attenuation Medical Gloves

    SBC: EnergyEne Inc.            Topic: 88

    High margin, low volume, specialty rubber product markets are critical to early stage commercialization of guayule natural rubber, a domestic rubber source. Current guayule production is too small to achieve economies of scale and cannot compete in the low cost, high volume, commodity markets. This project exploits the unique mechanical properties of guayule latex to develop the first radiation at ...

  2. Mill Development Model Development and Testing

    SBC: Innovative Natural Resource Solutions, LLC            Topic: 86

    INRS and MDP will collaborate to build an analytical model that demonstrates the probability of success - and opportunities for enhancement - for the redevelopment of idled industrial assets. This model will be developed and refined using the former pulp and paper mill in Old Town, ME., and data supplied by multiple redevelopment efforts elsewhere in the State of Maine. Based upon learnings and ex ...

  3. Virus-like-particle (VLP) vaccine for chicken infectious anemia.

    SBC: LARAD Inc.            Topic: 83

    The human population relies on food animals as a major source of high quality protein. Maintaining the health of these animals is of critical importance to good human nutrition worldwide. Chicken anemia virus (CAV) is an important immunosuppressive pathogen of poultry. We are proposing to improve vaccines and diagnostics for this pathogen to improve animal health. Chicken infectious anemia (CIA) i ...

  4. A New Nano-Based Detector for the Indian Meal Moth, Both Adult Insects and Larva

    SBC: SENSOR DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION            Topic: 85

    The problem of losses due to insect and microbiological pests does not end in the field or with the harvest. The problem persists into the storage phase where the value of raw commodities is reduced by direct damage. Thus sensing and eliminating insect pests must be accomplished to ensure not only the retention of maximum value of the crop but also to permit the safe movement of agricultural commo ...

  5. Prototyping NUGGET: A Nutrient and Greenhouse Gas Evaluation Tool

    SBC: APPLIED GEOSOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: N/A

    Farmers, crop consultants, and regulators are constantly faced with management/policy decisions that require the integration of current crop and soil conditions, and current and future weather conditions. Farmers and crop consultants must make these management decisions within a regulatory environment that is becoming more restrictive and complex. Regulators are forced to make policy recommendatio ...

  6. An Integrated Fermentation-Ultrafiltration Process for the Production of Xanthan Gum from Whey Lactose

    SBC: BIOPROCESSING INNOVATIVE COMPANY INC            Topic: N/A

    We have developed an enzyme process to produce GOS from whey lactose. GOS is a prebiotic with wide applications in human and animal foods. However, glucose and galactose are also produced in the process and must be removed from GOS because these monosaccharides do not have and can reduce the prebiotic effect. Xanthan gum is a microbial polysaccharide widely used as a suspending, stabilizing, and t ...

  7. Enhanced Control of Fruit Ripening

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Ethylene is a growth hormone for fruits and vegetables that is generated by the plants themselves; that is, it acts as a self-ripening agent. Hence, the removal of ethylene gas can play a central role in maintaining the freshness of these products. Whereas the temperature and the levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide gases are also important system variables that demand a significant economic invest ...

  8. Enhanced Performance of Agriculture Based Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A. Water must be removed from biodegradable hydraulic fluids as they react with water and degrade insitu. B. Biodegradable hydraulic fluids for farm equipment provide a significant improvement over traditional petroleum based fluids due to decreased pollution. Increase the use and value of biodegradable hydraulic fluids by development of a membrane-based dewatering system.

  9. Agricultural Emissions Reduction Using Bio-Fuels with Membrane Supplied Nitrogen

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The use of biodiesel offers significant advantages with regards to the reduction of total harmful engine emissions with the exception of NOx. Biodiesel is a renewable resource and soybean oil is known to be economically viable as a biodiesel fuel. Recent studies from the Environmental Protection Agency have shown that soybean oil alone or blended with #2 diesel fuel results in a significant decrea ...

  10. The Use of Reproductive Technology to Improve Flounder Growth

    SBC: GREATBAY AQUACULTURE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Summer flounder (Paralichthys dentatus) are a valuable commercial and recreational species with a natural range from the southern Gulf of Maine to South Carolina. Landings of Atlantic flounders decreased from 90,000 mt in 1984 to 25,000 mt in 1994. Total annual landings of summer flounder peaked at 39.9 million pounds in 1979, but recently from 1990-2003 landings have been much lower, fluctuating ...
