The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Improved Quality Soy-oil Based Biodiesel Fuel

    SBC: BioPlastic Polymers and Composites, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The benefits of biodiesel have been well documented, however, problems related to fuel quality, filter plugging, injector failure, material compatibility, and fuel economy still remain and must be resolved before wide spread use of biodiesel can be addressed. Some of these problems are inter-related, but all are inherent to the composition of the biodiesel. In particular, the presence of double bo ...

  2. Abrasion-Resistant Inorganic Membranes for Sugar Processing

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The sugar and grain processing industries produce tens of billions of dollars worth of product each year. These industries have used membrane technology for some applications but membrane durability limits their widespread utilization. At present, there are no commercial cost-effective membranes that have the requisite process performance and lifetime for many applications within these industries. ...

  3. Milk Pasteurization and Homogenization by Acoustic Cavitation at Small Rural Dairy Farms

    SBC: Harris Acoustic Products Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Milk prices have steadily increased over the past two decades; however, the price paid to farmers has remained around $1.00 per gallon over the last two decades. This has resulted in many small dairy farmers getting out of the business. The purpose of this project is to design a system that a small dairy farmer can use to process milk so that he can send it directly to the consumer and avoid the a ...

  4. Development of a Vaccine for the Prevention of Clostridium Botulinum Type C in Equine and Bovine Species

    SBC: Neogen Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Horses and cattle are susceptible to the neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum Type C, one of the types of botulism. The purpose of this project is to develop a toxoid to protect horses and cattle (particularly dairy cattle) against this disease.

  5. Chemical-Resistant Glass Fiber Reinforced Composites Incorporating Bio-Based Ion Exchangers Derived from Agricultural Residues and Starches

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Gass fiber composites suffer from early deterioration when exposed to alkaline environments. This project incorporates bio-based ion exchangers into the polymer matrix of glass fiber composites in order to neutralize aggressive chemicals and thus enhance the chemical resistance of composites.

  6. Dendritic Cell Subset for Enhanced Cancer Vaccine

    SBC: Aastrom Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Tumor antigen primed dendritic cells (DCs) are under widespread clinical evaluation for immunotherapy of multiple forms of cancer. Emerging evidence suggests that DCs are fundamental regulators of the immune response

  7. Bioreactor for Enhanced T-cell Based Therapy of Melanoma

    SBC: Aastrom Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Malignant melanoma is a significant and deadly form of cancer worldwide. Emerging evidence has shown that melanoma cells express tumor-associated antigens that are specifically recognized by the immune system. Melanom

  8. A Novel Polymeric Trileaflet Heart Valve Prosthesis

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The development of a durable, hemocompatible valve prosthesis is the long-term objective of this proposal. While heart valve prostheses have been used successfully since 1960, 10-year survival rates still range from

  9. Fail-safe TET system for implanted life support devices

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cardiac assist devices are increasingly being used for long term support. As patient survival times increase substantially, long-term management of the patients will increasingly play a role in suitability of these

    SBIR Phase I 2004 Department of Health and Human Services
  10. A Smart Polymer for Destination Cardiac Assist Devices

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cardiac assist devices are increasingly being used for long term support. As patient survival times increase substantially, device wear-out will increasingly play a role in the clinical management of patients with l
