  1. Bee-friendly dust-free seed coating for pollinator health

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Pollinators, typically honey bees, are critical for marketable yields of around 90 crops, including apples, blueberries, cucumbers and almonds. Honey bees, however, have been under considerable pressure from Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), leading to unprecedented and unsustainable colony losses. Pesticide exposure, especially neonicotinoids in seed coating, is one key stressor causing the general ...

  2. Optimized shellfish aquaculture production barge

    SBC: Ward Aquafarms LLC            Topic: 87

    Shellfish aquaculture in the United States has been expanding rapidly; providing jobs, promoting local economies, and yielding sustainable protein sources for a continuously growing human population. However, industry growth is restricted due to several issues which all directly relate to being able to get the food (microalgae) to the shellfish in an efficient manner. The issue is not that there i ...

  3. Biobased BPA-Free Epoxy Coatings for Food and Beverage Applications

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 88

    In this Phase 1 SBIR proposal, Vuronyx Technologies will develop biobased isosorbide epoxy precursors as replacement to Bisphenol-A epoxy precursors used currently in "can coatings" for food and beverages.Canning of foods and beverages in tin-plated steel or aluminum is extensively used for food preservation and storage because of low material and productions costs and durability of the containers ...

  4. Energy-Positive Wastewater Treatment and Reuse System For Agriculture Applications

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: 84

    The use of recycled water has never been more important than it is today, especially with California and the Western United States experiencing the worst drought in 500 years.To address the severe and persistent shortage of water,growers in California are increasingly looking to recycled water as a way to consistently meet their irrigation demands. The main challenge for water reuse in agriculture ...

  5. Industrial Relevant Microbial Electrochemical Reactor for Wastewater Processing

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: 84

    A new reactor technology is being developed that can process agricultural wastewaters economically while also creating a marketable bioproduct. The combined syngeries of efficiently processing wastewater while also creating a biofuel product for resale helps to economically treat wastewater with a positive energy balance.

  6. An eddy covariance system for simultaneous flux measurements of total reactive nitrogen, ammonia, and nitrogen oxides (NOx)

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Nitrogen balance plays a critical role in agricultural food security and biodiversity. While some nitrogen addition, such as fertilization, is highly beneficial to agriculture, too much can result in lower crop yields and plant loss. Air pollution can tip the nitrogen balance toward unhealthy soil and poor growing conditions, and affect a plant's ability to cope with drought. Understanding the ...

  7. Pulsed Electric Field Application to Aquaculture: Predator Control and Product Extraction

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 87

    This Phase II SBIR focuses on the application of Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) processing to the growth and extraction of microalgae and algal products. PEF processing uses short, high voltage electrical pulses to break cellular membranes (also referred to as electroporation or cell lysing). PEF has been applied across a range of applications, from non-thermal pasteurization of juices to wastewater ...

  8. Cyberchase Fractions Quest

    SBC: FABLE VISION, INC.            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    The final product is Cyberchase Fractions Quest—a math game based on the storyline of PBS children's television series, Cyberchase. In the game, students in grades 3 and 4 will apply learning fractions within three contexts: areas and regions (such as shapes), sets (groups of objects), and on a number line. The game will identify specific areas where students struggle and will introduce challeng ...

  9. Real-time Assessment of Antimicrobial Concentrations for Personalized Treatment of Infectious Diseases

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: SB162001

    There is an urgent need to optimize antimicrobial dosing in order to address the prevalence of drug-resistant pathogens and the increase of minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of antimicrobials. Antimicrobials typically have a narrow window of effective concentration or therapeutic indices. If the drug is dosed above this concentration window it becomes toxic. Conversely, if under-dosed, trea ...

  10. Platform for Research Optimization and Creation of Experiments in Social Science (PROCESS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB162003

    To better understand the world around them, social scientists develop models and theories of human behavior and interaction that they empirically test through a variety of quantitative and qualitative techniques. However, current methodological paradigms often introduce biases through sampling constraints and data analysis techniques that make the results of social science experiments hard to repl ...
