  1. Novel Vaccines For Johne's Disease

    SBC: Pan Genome Systems, Inc            Topic: 83

    Our company has several vaccine candidates that could help in protecting animals from Johne's disease. In this phase of the project, we will test the performance of these vaccines in mice. Once proven protective, we will be able to run more tests on a ruminant model of infection that pave the way for field testing of these vaccine in dairy farms.

  4. Comparison of agricultural marketing success across multiple platforms

    SBC: Hevva LLC            Topic: 812

    Each week, in total, 338 small and mid-sized farms ($1,000-500,000 in revenue) go out of business despite the undeniable demand for local food. This proposal will work with a state department of agriculture to research the viability of real-time price sheet marketing, as compared to static information, utilizing the various mediums of print, web, and mobile applications to determine the most effec ...

  5. Novel Air Processor for the Removal of Ammonia Gas From CAFO Air Streams

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 84

    In this proposal, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) outlines the development of a system for remediating ammonia (NH3) produced in large confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs). The animal agricultural industry is coming under increased scrutiny due to the large volume of pollutants, in particular ammonia, produced in its operations. PSI's proposed remediation system for NH3 utilizes an adsorbe ...

  8. Robust Airborne Wind Turbine

    SBC: Altaeros Energies, Inc.            Topic: 86

    Wind turbines have reshaped rural America by boosting incomes, creating jobs, and harnessing local energy sources. However, conventional tower-mounted wind turbines have three main problems that limit their potential: (1) only about 12 percent of communities have strong enough ground winds to make projects economical; (2) installations are too expensive, requiring a crane and concrete foundation; ...

  9. Enhancing Biosynthesis of Biofuels from Cellulosic Biomass

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    There continues to be a need for production of biofuels from agricultural sources. Butanol is a more attractive fuel than ethanol because it leads to better gas mileage, it achieves higher blends with gasoline than bioethanol, it has greater compatibility with existing fuel infrastructure, it is less volatile, it is more amenable to transport via pipeline due to low water absorption, there is no n ...
