  1. Biodegradable Lubricants from Renewable Feedstocks

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 88

    Current agriculture and off-road equipment requires the use of lubricants to ensure efficient operation of integral hydraulic and gear driven systems. The lubricants, either oils or greases, aid in reducing friction, dissipating heat, prevent oxidation, and seal of water and debris from vital areas of the equipment. During operation, equipment may have slight leaks or suffer catastrophic failures ...

  3. Development and Evaluation of Nanophase Silica as Super Pozzolan for Applications in Ultra-High Performance Concrete Mixtures

    SBC: CHK GROUP, INC.            Topic: 88

    The principal objective of the proposed USDA SBIR Phase I project is to develop the use of Nanophase Silica (NS), a product derived from processing of agricultural waste, as a key ingredient in Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) formulations to achieve very high strength, durability and dimensional stability (i.e. no shrinkage or expansion without cracking). Also, the excess energy/steam from ...

  5. Natural biodegradable flocculants derived from hemoglobin

    SBC: VRM Labs Inc            Topic: 84

    Antioxidants are a vital component of the food industry. Most of currently used antioxidants aresynthetic chemicals, and there is a global concern among regulatory bodies and customersregarding the safety of these compounds. However, natural antioxidants are more than ten timesmore expensive, and are often not as effective as their synthetic counterparts. Thus, there is a needfor inexpensive and c ...

  6. Developing the Use of the Dietary Inflammatory Index among Children (C-DII)

    SBC: Connecting Health Innovations, LLC            Topic: 85

    Through this proposal we offer a literature-derived, population-based dietary inflammatory index (C-DII) developed to characterize children diets on a scale from maximally anti- to pro-inflammatory. Diet is a strong moderator of chronic systemic inflammation. This C-DII will be used as a basis to:• Direct school lunch programs towards foods that will reduce inflammatrion-associated health risks, ...

  9. Low-Cost Sampling Approaches for Measuring Induced VOCs of Citrus

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Huanglongbing (HLB) is a pathogen that devastates citrus crops; growers and public response agencies need a portable, sensitive, in-field device to detect this pathogen in citrus crops. However, there are no low-cost, robust diagnostic tests currently available for early identification of this or other citrus pathogens under field conditions. Quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) testing i ...
