  1. Next Generation Energy Efficient Supplemental Lighting for Plant Production

    SBC: CYCLOPTICS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 813

    Greenhouse farming is an absolute necessity to revive and create local agriculture industries in northern climatically challenged regions with short growing seasons. Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) has made significant strides in greenhouse farming technology. State of the art CEA farming utilizes direct control of lighting, temperature and CO2 in a hydroponics environment. Key advantages ...

  2. Pelleted sericea lespedeza diet for control of internal parasites and pathogens in goats and sheep

    SBC: SIMS BROTHERS INCORPORATED            Topic: 83

    Internal parasites are the greatest health and production challenge for sheep and goats in southeastern states and others during warm, humid conditions (including Northeastern, Midwestern and irrigated pastures in Western US). Haemonchus contortus or barber pole worm thrives in warm, humid climates and is a voracious blood feeder that can cause anemia and death to the animal if left untreated. Dew ...

  3. Development of an Integrated Anaerobic Digestion System for Methane Production from Lignocellulosic Biomass

    SBC: Quasar Energy Group, LLC            Topic: 88

    The proposed project builds on prior research that has shown the potential for energy recovery from lignocellulosic biomass through an integrated anaerobic digestion (iADs) process. A 2005 USDA report places the current production of corn stover at 75 million dry tons per year and stated that this represents a major untapped source of agricultural biomass. The innovative anaerobic digestion proces ...

  4. SBIR Phase I:Thermally Stable, Flexible Substrates for Flat Panel Displays

    SBC: AKRON POLYMER SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will establish the feasibility of producing a flexible, highly transparent polyimide film that is thermally stable, has a high glass transition, displays near zero birefringence and a low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE). This material is designed for use as a flexible flat panel display substrate. No available material displays all of ...

  6. SBIR Phase I:Structured bed for CO2 Capture

    SBC: CATACEL CORP            Topic: BC

    This SBIR Phase I project will show proof-of-concept for a structured bed reactor using dry materials coating metal foil surfaces to capture CO2 from power plants and other combustion sources. This process will employ a scale-up version of an existing heat exchanging reactor platform in combination with sorbent materials developed by Hoffman at the National Energy Technology Laboratory and other ...

  7. SBIR Phase I:Physics Based Modeling, Design, and Optimization of Microalgae Growth Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: BC

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop software for comprehensive evaluation of algal production systems. Standard models from literature for fluid flow (mass, turbulence, momentum), energy, light distribution, photosynthesis, algae growth and concentration, gas transfer, and heat transfer will be incorporated into the software. The innovative component of this proposal is the integration of exi ...

  8. Electroconcentration, Separation, and Rupture of Bioalgae for Fuel Production

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: BC

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop an extraction technique using electro-concentration, electro-separation, and electro-rupture processes to enhance the harvesting of oil from bioalgae. The proposed method would provide an economical alternative to expeller or solvent extraction of lipids from bioalgae. Elimination of the current use of energy intensive methods and often use of hazardous sol ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Catalyst for the Oxidation of Methane in Coal Mine Ventilation Air

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to develop a novel high temperature catalyst for the oxidation of methane present in coal mine ventilation air. Referred to as ventilation air methane (VAM), VAM emissions contain between 0.2% and 1.2% CH4 plus ppm levels of sulfur gases (H2S, SO2 and COS). While the sulfur levels are low, these levels are sufficient to rapidly deacti ...
