  1. Chemically Active Fruit Label for the Visual Estimation of Fruit Ripeness

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Certain fruits do not change color as they ripen and hence it may be difficult for consumers to select fruit that is ready to eat. Melons and winter pears are examples of fruit that is difficult to select. Most fruit is now individually labeled and this project will develop a label that will change color as the fruit approaches ripeness. This colorimetric label will provide ...

  3. Reproductive Confinement of Channel Catfish with Transgenic Sterilization

    SBC: Aqua Bounty Technologies            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Transgenic, domestic, interspecific hybrid and exotic fish all have great potential for benefiting both aquaculture and recreational fishing. Many of these fish, especially transgenics, are not used because of ecological concerns. The ultimate solution to these biodiversity, genetic biodiversity and environmental risk issues for application of these fish is transgenic steril ...

  4. Abrasion-Resistant Inorganic Membranes for Sugar Processing

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The sugar industry produces over 100 million tons of sugar each year. This large industry has been intrigued by the use of membranes to enhance the efficiency of production for many decades but membranes that have the correct combination of performance and cost have not yet been developed for consideration in large scale installations. High temperature, high viscosity, and m ...

  5. Automated Fouling Mitigation System for Dairy Filtration Membranes

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Filtration membranes in the dairy industry for milk and cheese whey processing are to be cleaned and disinfected every 24 hours. Typical filtration plants for large-scale dairy processing have hold-up volumes of 1000-2000 gallons requiring large volumes of cleaning solutions and large quantities of chemical cleansers. Reducing cleanser cost and the environmental impact of sp ...

  7. A Novel Rodent Bait to Reduce Lyme Disease Risk

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Lyme disease is an emerging infectious disease accounting for more than 90% of all reported vector-borne diseases. In the eastern United States, the spirochete Borellia burgdorferi, which causes the disease, is carried by the deer tick (Ixodes scapularis). The main reservoir for the spirochete in the wild is the white-footed mouse (Peromyscus leucopus), which serves as the m ...

  8. Low-Cost Electrochemical Ethylene Sensor for Agricultural Applications

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Ethylene (ethene) is a plant hormone that is active at very low concentrations in the developmental and reproductive processes of plants. Ethylene plays a crucial role in the complex processes of ripening and senescence of fruit, vegetable and floral crops, making this unique sensor a valuable tool for U.S. agriculture. The anticipated result of the Phase I and Phase II prog ...

  9. Compatible Economic Development in the Rocky Mountain Region: Diversifying Agricultural Income with Cultivation Techniques for Osha

    SBC: Healing Planet Herbs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Rural communities throughout the Rocky Mountain region are in need of diversified, value-added crops to bolster a declining agricultural sector. Osha (Ligusticum porteri) is an excellent candidate. A native medicinal plant adapted to high-altitude, semi-arid ecosystems, osha currently commands a premium wholesale price for dried root. Yet a key factor limiting use is a lack ...

  10. Deployment of Fuel Cell and Electrolyzer Energy Storage Systems in Rural Areas

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The continuing development of fuel cells and electrolyzers has advanced the technology for use in a range of applications from aerospace and military to residential and vehicle systems. The technical viability of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells and electrolyzers has been clearly demonstrated in these applications, however, the economic viability remains far away ex ...
