  1. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods to discern the differentiation state of stem cells are time-consuming, labor-intensive, costly, invasive, and consequently, ill-suited for clinical applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop a microfluidic stem cell analyzer for accurate, non-invasive identification of the cell differentiation state in conjunction with automated cell sorting at high-throughp ...

  2. A Biogas-Tolerant Engine-Generator for Advanced Agricultural Waste Management Systems

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 811

    Anaerobic digesters are capable of producing methane-rich biogas from animal manure and also offer the advantages of controlling odors, reducing pathogens, and minimizing the environmental impact of the waste. The biogas produced from anaerobic digesters is a renewable, distributed source of energy that can be used to generate electricity to offset power consumption on farms. Unfortunately, biogas ...

  3. Advancing Over the Top Citrus Harvesting Equipment for Juice Markets in High Density Groves

    SBC: GEO-SPIDER, INCORPORATED            Topic: 813

    We are seeking to develop a new technological approach to managing and harvesting citrus in High Density Groves, which is an emerging production system that offers solutions to the Florida citrus industries battles with pest, diseases, and high cost of labor. This multi-function platform will be used for harvesting as well as other production tasks such as spraying, hedging, mowing, and etc. The l ...

  4. Agronomic, environmental, and economic evaluation of cyanobacterial bio-fertilizer for small and mid-size farms growing high-value crops

    SBC: THIN AIR NITROGEN SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: 812

    Modern agriculture is highly dependent on nitrogen (N) fertilization to maintain high yields and profitability. In organic agriculture, cover crops and bulky organic amendments supply N; transport costs can be prohibitive, and energy used in transport is substantial. In conventional agriculture, industrial N fixation uses natural gas, high temperatures, and high pressures to convert atmospheric N ...

  5. ALDER GENETIC IMPROVEMENT FOR THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST FOREST PRODUCTS INDUSTRY

    SBC: GREENWOOD RESOURCES, INC.            Topic: 81

    Red alder is the predominant commercial hardwood species of the Pacific Northwest. It is an early successional species that rapidly regenerates following fire or clearcutting and normally precedes the establishment of the historically preferred Douglas-fir. As such, past conifer forestry management practices were designed to speed the transition to Douglas-fir through alder eradication efforts. Co ...

  6. Ambient Temperature Oxidation Catalyst for Ethylene Control in Fresh Produce Containers

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The respiration of fresh fruits and vegetables (FF & amp;V) converts oxygen from the surrounding air into carbon dioxide, moisture and ethylene. While ethylene is used under controlled conditions as a ripening agent, the presence of even small amounts of ethylene gas in shipping and storage containers causes most fresh produce to deteriorate much faster, potentially spoiling it before it reaches t ...

  7. A New Renewable Polymer from Bio Oil

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 88

    This project will develop a catalytic process to manufacture a new renewable and degradable bio-plastic that could be used to replace polyethylene in many applications, including those that constitute a large part of land and ocean litter such as bags, food packaging and disposable tableware.

  8. A Regenerable Sorbent for Deep Desulfurization of Alpha Pinene

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 81

    The production of turpentine in the U.S. exceeded 301,000 tons in 2004 (Romney 2004) and the production of resin acids exceeded 800,000 ton in 2003 (Romney 2004), which also includes the production from directly tapping trees (e.g., gum turpentine, gum rosin). There is growing demand for bio-plastics (non-petroleum derived polymers); for example Pepsi announced it will be using bio-plastic bottles ...

  9. Automated Modular Algae Cultivation For Aquaculture

    SBC: Culture Fuels, Inc.            Topic: 87

    There is compelling value to feeding live algae in fish hatcheries as the current survival rate oflarvae fed frozen paste is relatively low resulting in higher costs.However the complexity andcosts of existing photo-bioreactors and the logistical costs of shipping live material over distancesare barriers to the widespread deployment of live algae as feed.Culture BioSystems has successfully grown a ...

  10. Biomorphic Silicon Anodes for High Capacity Batteries

    SBC: PH MATTER, LLC            Topic: 88

    tructural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are widely used construction panels in residential andcommercial applications. SIPs have insulating foam sandwiched between two Oriented StrandBoards (OSBs). SIPs provide design flexibility faster installations reduced man hours andreduced maintenance. Core materials for SIPs are chosen for their insulating properties.Thermocore of Missouri (Thermocore) has develo ...
