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. Application of Frost Prevention in Food Processing Equipment

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Thermal and Environmental Concepts, Inc. proposes to utilize electrohydrodynamic (EHD) technology to reduce the amount of frost that forms on cold plates in food freezers. The defrost cycle consumes about 5-15% of the energy to operate an industrial food freezer. During Phase I of our project, we used EHD technology to reduce frost mass by 35% and frost height by as mush as 65% under cert ...

  3. Novel Electrochemical Sensors for Ag Diagnostics and GMOs

    SBC: Agdia, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Unique challenges face agriculture diagnostics, dictated by the small profit margins in crop production and the need for rapid, reliable assay information under highly variable environmental conditions. The need to identify genetically modified organisms (GMOs) has recently become acute due to new legislation, public demands, global transport of plants, and commercial processing of food and fiber. ...

  4. Natural Products for the Control of Insects, Mites, and Nematodes

    SBC: AgraQuest, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agriculture needs biorational pesticides to serve as replacements in an industry dominated by outdated synthetic chemicals. Residues in the food supply, environmental impact, and worker safety issues underscore the need for novel pesticides. Without a range of products with unique modes of action, the overuse of limited chemicals and biorational approaches (Bacillus thuringiensis-based transgenic ...

  5. Sorting Feedlot Cattle for Metabolism and Growth by Infrared Thermal Imaging

    SBC: Katalyst, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Variation in growth performance and health of feedlot cattle leads to large differences in weigh or degree of finish at the point of harvest. Carcass quality losses alone cost the industry $3.5 billion annually. Traditional management practices of sorting cattle by weight and physical characteristics to minimize variation fail to take into consideration individual feed intake and metabolic rate as ...

  6. Non-Corrosive Propionate Based Road Deicer

    SBC: Katalyst, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel fermentation process and extraction system are proposed to produce a biodegradable, non- corrosive deicer from biomass wastes and crops containing sugars and starches. Sodium and calcium chlorides now extensively used in road deicing cause corrosion damage to automobiles, bridges, and highway infrastructure. Further, significant environmental damage occurs from accumulation of these salts ...

  7. Plastics Recycling: Using Agricultural Residues to Improve Performance

    SBC: Agro-Plastics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agro-Plastics, Inc. has successfully developed and is commercializing a process that uses agricultural fibers as fillers in virgin plastics. The Agro-Plastic manufacturing plants are designed for small communities, providing employment and non-farm revenues at a time when small rural communities are struggling with depressed crop prices and loss of manufacturing jobs. As a natural extension of thi ...

  8. Intermodal Shipping Containers for Live Aquatic Product

    SBC: Allied Engineering Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research is to evaluate the feasibility of a volume transport and holding container for live fish and aquatic product. The proposed container would aerate, cool and circulate water using liquid air and no external power supply. The technology would allow a cost effective means to maintain a hibernation-like torpor in fish to overcome physiological constraints of volume live transport ...

  9. Microsatellite DNA and Its Application in Mentha Species

    SBC: A.M. Todd Company            Topic: N/A

    Essential oil plants in Mentha species have been valued historically for their medicinal, culinary, and fragrance properties. Despite the existence of several mint species and many cultivars, the U.S. Mint Oil Industry is based upon three sterile clones and their minor somatic variants. The narrow genetic base of these commercial varieties could endanger the stability of the mint industry if virul ...

  10. Method for Control of Biting Midges Using Odor-Baited Traps

    SBC: American Biophysics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a method of trapping biting midges including Culicoides. Biting midges are economically important insect pests. Their presence in large numbers can have a detrimental impact on land development and tourism. In addition, these insects are the vector of bluetongue, an arbovirus which is transmitted in cattle and sheep during repeated blood-feeding by biting flies. Our approach ...
