  6. Development of a Thermographic Device for Evaluating Integrity of Steel Bridge Coatings Nondestructively

    SBC: Fuchs Consulting Inc            Topic: 091FH2

    This effort is advancing the development of a nondestructive evaluation (NDE) tool for quantitative assessment of highway bridge coatings, the Infrared Coating Inspection System (IR‐CIS). The IR‐CIS can be used to improve decision‐making regarding over‐coating or recoating of bridges, by better and more fully quantifying the current condition of coatings in ways not possible using only vis ...

  7. MiteNot: Heat to Remove Varroa mites

    SBC: Eltopia Communications LLC            Topic: 813

    The honey bee provides essential pollination services for over 45 commercial crops grown throughout the U.S., adding $14.6 billion to the value of the country's agricultural production each year. In addition, U.S. beekeepers produce between 170 and 220 million pounds of honey each year, more than 50% of total U.S. consumption. Hence, a sustainable supply of healthy and affordable honey bee col ...

  8. Innovative Low Cost Solar Air Heating for Poultry House Ventilation

    SBC: AMERICAN SOLAR INC            Topic: 812

    American Solar, Inc. proposes to research and analyze two low cost solar air heating systems for poultry houses. The solar heating systems will use an existing poultry house metal roof and a new wall-mounted, solar curtain system to harvest renewable, solar heated air. The solar heated air will displace cold outside ventilation air that would be brought into the house and require heating by non-re ...

  9. Increase production of canna germplasm using multiplex PCR screening and antiviral treatments for rhizome sanitization

    SBC: HORN CANNA FARM, INC.            Topic: 82

    Horn Farms Inc needs to routinely produce sufficient annual seed stocks to support commercial production of key canna varieties. Thus the greenhouse diagnostic and sanitization program is necessary to meet production goals. Accurate visual disease assessment is carried out at 2 and 4 weeks of growth (instead of 10 and 16 weeks). Genus specific PCR primers were developed which detect all viruses in ...

  10. Sustainable, Scalable, Production of Commodity/Specialty Chemical, 2-Phenylethanol, in Transgenic Poplar: Phase 1

    SBC: EALASID, INC.            Topic: 81

    There is an urgent need in the U.S. for renewable, domestic, supplies of fine/specialty and commodity chemicals, biofuels, and materials currently obtained from dwindling petroleum based resources. For example, various aromatics [e.g., styrenes, ethyl benzene, 2-phenylethanol (PEA)] are currently annually produced synthetically as commodity chemicals from our finite petrochemical resource. Frequen ...
