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. Development of a Sensitive, Autonomous Quantum Cascade Laser-Based Detector for Ammonia

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The USDA recognizes the need for improved instrumentation to monitor atmospheric ammonia which is a major environmental concern and a health hazard. Ammonia is a public health concern at high levels, as can be found in animal feed lots. At low levels, ammonia is a source of particulates which are not only a human health problem but also affect visibility and global climate. It has been estimated t ...

  2. Enhanced Cool Processing of Value Added Beverages

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

    Osmotic distillation is an excellent method for highly concentrating thermally sensitive liquids at low temperatures. However, commercial success of this process has been limited due to lack of membrane stability during the processing of economically interesting liquids. We believe that our high flux, non-porous perfluoromembrane is an ideal candidate for OD in that it has high flux rates and will ...

  3. Advanced Development of a Low-Cost, Handheld Electrochemical Ethylene Monitor

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ethylene is a plant hormone that is involved in regulating various aspects of plant growth and development such as seed dormancy, seedling growth, root and stem thickening, promotion of flowering, and promotion of fruit ripening and spoilage. Measurement of ethylene is important for developing a basic understanding of these processes, as well as for utilization in advanced agricultural practices. ...

  6. High Value Products from Molokai Seaweed: A New Enterprise for Coastal Hawaiians

    SBC: Lohea Audio            Topic: N/A

    The project is to expand a small business in Molokai, a rural community in Hawaii, to develop products based on one of the island's most under utilized resources, seaweeds. Seaweeds are marketed as fresh sea-vegetables in local markets. However, these markets are limited; and this proposal includes the development and marketing of new, seaweed-based products The focus is on the production products ...

  7. Aquaculture of Reef Fish

    SBC: Pacific Planktonics            Topic: N/A

    This project investigates the feasibility of producing high value ornamental reef fish that have not been raised before, and reducing the cost to farm these fish. The market for ornamental reef fish is very large, but that market is supplied primarily by wild fish captured from tropical reefs. Hatchery technology is only marginally successful for most reef fishes. Success in this project will incr ...

  8. Bioactive Food Components as Activators of Human SIRT1; Development of Caloric Restriction-mimetic Therapeutics Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity

    SBC: Sirtris Pharmaceuticals            Topic: N/A

    Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. There are currently 18 million patients in North America and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive Kidney Disease (NIDDK) estimates that approximately 800,000 new cases of diabetes are diagnosed each year in the U.S. alone. In 2002 the direct costs of T2D were estimated to be $92 billion (up from $44 billion in ...
