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. Creating Resilient Structures with Polymer Coatings

    SBC: Optechnology, Inc.            Topic: 819S

      The first goal of our team is to design and develop highly ductile cement mortar composites using novel patent applied for technology which has been shown to produce materials with high energy absorption, decreased modulus, higher tensile strength, and greater toughness than standard or ultra high performance concretes or fibercements. These materials will be used to produce NEMA Class ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Energy efficient systems for high frequency propagation of virus-free Lilium cvs

    SBC: Jersey Flora, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The production of saleable products of lily bulbs and plants normally requires a minimum of 2 years. These production systems involve growth of bulbs and plants in the field, vernalization of saleable bulbs, and planting and growing plants from the bulbs in greenhouses. The field production phase often exposes plants to virus and other disease infections as well as insect problems. Our research to ...

  4. Lily Bulbs???A Functional Food for the Prevention of Type 2 Diabetes

    SBC: Jersey Flora, Inc.            Topic: 85

    More than 20% of the American population harbor the risk factors defined for metabolic syndrome, a condition that is highly correlated with the development of type-2 diabetes and coronary heart disease. Various botanical extracts have been used in traditional medicines to treat the symptoms of diabetes, and many of these preparations contain saponins. We have isolated an extract from the bulbs of ...

  5. A Multifaceted Community Approach Preventing Child Obesity Through Standards-Based Classroom Instruction Using an Interactive Inform Tech

    SBC: INNOVATIVE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES            Topic: 85

    The extent and underlying factors leading to the rise of childhood obesity are well documented with prevalence rates derived from the NHANES (CDC) indicating a significant upward trend over the last 30 years. Between 1974 and 2004 childhood overweight rates increased from 4.0% to 18.8% in our target population - school aged children (ages 6-11 years). The 2004 survey data indicates a near doubling ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  10. High-Efficiency Microalgae Biofuel Harvest and Extraction Using Ionic Liquids

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: 18b

    Producing renewable fuels from algae does not use agricultural lands and could make the US energy-independent while drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, biomass processing steps are currently too energy-intensive and cost-prohibitive.We are exploring new chemistry to obtain an energy- and cost-efficient way to dry algae biomass and extract energetic substrates for conversion int ...
