  2. Mobile Factory Design for On-Site Wind Turbine Tower Production

    SBC: Keystone Tower Systems, Inc.            Topic: 86

    Larger, taller wind turbines could significantly reduce the cost of wind energy and enable much broader deployment. For example, a recent study from the National Renewable Energy Lab [NREL/TP-5000-61063] showed that increasing tower heights from 96m to 140m would nearly double the available wind resource in the US (adding 1,800 GW) and bring wind development to many areas where it is not currently ...

  3. Development of Non-toxic, Bio-based Antifouling Treatments for the Aquaculture Industry

    SBC: E PAINT COMPANY            Topic: 87

    The objective of the proposed research effort is to develop low-cost, non-toxic, soy-based polymers as vehicles for ePaint photoactive antifouling technology. Phase I research investigates the feasibility of synthesizing soy polymers as water-based emulsions and assessing their utility as photoactive biofouling release coatings. This approach, if successful, will result in an affordable, non-toxic ...

  4. "Cyclodextrin diets for enhancing fish health"

    SBC: DIAMOND V MILLS, INCORPORATED            Topic: 87

    Aquaculture is the fastest growing food-producing sector in the world and accounts forapproximately 50% of the seafood consumed throughout the world. However, the demand for farmraisedfish has pushed fish production densities to new limits and this has increased the incidenceand spread of disease. There have been very few drugs developed for treating and preventingdiseases in fish. We have discove ...

  6. Code optimization for two-dimensional distributed soil loss modeling

    SBC: AGREN INC            Topic: 84

    Central Iowa-based small business, Agren, in collaboration with the ARS Sedimentation Laboratory and the University of Tennessee, has developed two GIS-based soil loss modeling tools. Each tool combines remotely-sensed, high-resolution digital elevation models (LiDAR) and newly developed hydrologic algorithms with long standing soil-loss modeling principles. The results to date are two-dimensional ...

  7. Superhydrophobic coatings for enhanced fog harvesting in arid coastal regions

    SBC: NBD NANOTECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: 84

    Large areas across the United States and around the world are afflicted by drought, a condition that inflicts damage to local economies and particularly to agriculture. While some communities are turning to expensive energy-intensive processes such as desalination and long distance transport to address water shortages, NBD Nanotechnologies, Inc. is working to reduce stress on watershed resources b ...

  8. Ammonia Production for Fertilizers at Ambient Pressure and Low Temperature

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Ammonia (NH3) is an extremely important feedstockfor producing nitrogen fertilizers, such as that provide essential nutrition for crop vitality. The worldwide production of ammonia is more than 100 million tons per year. The conventional Haber-Bosch ammonia production process requires high pressure and temperature (up to 300 atm and 500 & deg;C) and is, as such, extremely energy-intensive. Thi ...

  9. Next Generation Vaccine for Infectious Bovine Keratoconjuctivitis

    SBC: HARRISVACCINES, INC.            Topic: 83

    Currently available vaccines for infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis (IBK), also known as "pinkeye", have poor efficacy and low cross-protection between strains. This may be partly due to the lack of mucosal antibody responses, which are not induced by traditional inactivated bacterin vaccines. The use of alphavirus replicon particle (RP) vaccines has been shown to induce muscosal imm ...

  10. The Intelligent Brace: A Compliance Monitoring System for Scoliosis

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

    Scoliosis, a condition where there is lateral curvature of the spine, affects an estimated 6 million people in the United States. There is widespread use of bracing for treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, and recent studies have begun documenting its efficacy. These studies have indicated that user compliance is a large, yet largely unquantified, factor in successful outcomes. There are ...
