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.

  2. Protecting Ponderosa Pine from Dendroctonus with VerbPlus Repel

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 81

    This SBIR proposal targets the western pine beetle (WPB) Dendroctonus brevicomis LeConte (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae), the most destructive insect pest of ponderosa pine, Pinus ponderosa Douglas ex Lawson, in much of western North America. This insect causes high levels of tree mortality, inflicting millions of dollars in losses each year. One million or more trees, equivalent to more t ...

  3. Program Code 8.1: Forests and Related Resources, Subtopic 7: Sustainable Bioenergy and Development of Value-Added Products From Forest Resou

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 81

    For sustainable forests, residues must be managed at low cost. If residues could be converted to a valuable energy product, then management costs would be offset, leading to improved forests. To create a valuable energy product from low density residues, they must be densified to reduce handling, transport and storage costs. In this project, the technical feasibility of the low cost Biomass Fuel B ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Mixed-Oxidant Water Treatment System for Agricultural Enterprises

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: 84

    Thisprogramwill develop and demonstrate a modular mixed-oxidant water treatment system that can operate with agricultural enterprises to deactivate contaminants present in drinking water sources. The system will be designed to oxidize contaminants that include pharmaceutical compounds, pesticides, fertilizers, and manure present in farming water sources.

  7. Integration of Novel Attractants into Bait and Kill Stations for Control of the Asian Citrus Psyllid

    SBC: Inscent, Inc            Topic: 82

    Asian Citrus Psyllid (ACP) vectors citrus greening disease and is thus the most serious pest faced by the US citrus industry. The ACP has already severely affected Florida citrus production, has entered Texas, and is spreading into California, where citrus is a billion-dollar industry with a history dating back to the 19th century. However, current control approaches lack effective attractants for ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. UNATTENDED MONITOR FOR GREENHOUSE CROP HEALTH

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: 813

    Seacoast proposes to develop a low-cost system that can directly monitor chemicals emitted from crops, over a period of days to months, and analyze these chemicals for the indicators of crop stress. Researchers have found a number of chemicals that are emitted when certain plants are under attack from biotic or abiotic stresses. One example, methyl salicylate (MeS) has been found by researchers to ...
