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. Development of Non-Toxic BPA-Free Phytochemical Resins for Coating & Packaging Applications

    SBC: VENTANA RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 88

    A burgeoning need exists for less toxic plastic packaging resins in society today. Current concerns about chronic human exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) epoxy resins commonly employed as corrosion resistant liners within canned food container interiors has driven the need to explore alternative, less toxic polymer barrier can liner materials. This effort will focus upon evaluating novel alternative l ...

  2. Engineering microbial co-cultures for efficient production of a high-value biopolymer from bioprocessing by-products of industrial crops

    SBC: ECOVIA RENEWABLES INC.            Topic: 88

    The past decade has seen remarkable progress in the development of biobased fuel and chemical production. Biobased fuels and chemicals could create substantial economic benefits for farmers and rural communities, since biomass feedstock production and conversion to biobased products are predominantly rural activities. However, substantial challenges exist and achieving economic viability of large- ...

  3. Catalytic production of hydrocarbons from biomass

    SBC: VISOLIS, INC            Topic: 88

    Conversion of biomass into useful fungible chemicals and fuels is a long standing challenge. A key requirement of such processes is high efficiency of conversion for economic viability. Biomass derived sugars are highly oxygenated and need processing to remove to be converted into useful hydrocarbons.We propose an integrated bio-thermochemical platform for production of a hydrocarbon which can be ...

  4. Development of a Prototype Process for Production of Tapes and Labels with Vegetable-Oil-Based Pressure Sensitive Adhesives

    SBC: Lao K LLC            Topic: 88

    Pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) are those sticky materials that can stick to various substrates under light pressure at room temperature. PSAs are widely used for production of tapes such as duct tape and package tapes, labels, stamps, post-it® notes and many other products. At present, PSAs are mainly derived from petrochemical-based polymers such as polyacrylates. Petrochemicals are not ...

  5. Novel Pathway For The Synthesis Of 1-Hexanol From Biomass-Derived Sugars

    SBC: ZYMOCHEM INC            Topic: 88

    1-hexanol is a widely used intermediate chemical with applications in the perfume, food, chemicals ?and polymer industry. It can be dehydrated to make 1-hexene which is widely used a co-monomer for polyethylene applications. Current industrial production of 1-hexanol uses petroleum based feedstocks and involves several steps that are carried out at high temperatures and high pressures, making the ...

  6. Biobased Semiochemical Production From a New American Industrial Oil Crop

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 88

    Semiochemicals, especially pheromones, are of critical importance to integrated pest and vector management. Some pheromones, however, are too expensive, costing over $50,000/kg. This makes them far too costly for many control agencies to use in aggressive management regimes, as the required quantities for effective formulations are high. The development of a synthetic process to convert low cost b ...

  7. Retail Business to Promote Consumption of Processed Foods that Contribute Key Nutrients of Concern to Consumers

    SBC: HEAT LOCATORS LLC            Topic: 85

    The food desert environment is recognized as a major obstacle for access to, and consumption of, healthy food choices by many low income and minority consumers. This has resulted in disparities in obesity and related chronic diseases such as Type II diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Efforts to address this problem have included increased nutrition education, school interventions and urban farmi ...

  8. Development of roses resistant to rose rosette disease

    SBC: CONARD-PYLE CO. THE            Topic: 82

    The ornamental sector is the most valuable non-food crop sector of US agriculture. However, changing climates and increased interstate commerce have increased the ease with which diseases can spread and threaten this valuable industry. In the past few decades, Rose Rosette Disease (RRD) has spread from its source in the Rockies, through the Mid-West to the South and major populations centers of th ...

  9. Improved Soybean Feed for Use in Aquaculture

    SBC: Arcadia Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Soybean meal has long been a critical input for animal feed in monogastric animals (such as chickens and pigs) as it provides an ideal protein profile to promote healthy, rapid animal growth at a competitive price. More recently, aquaculture, the fastest growing commercial animal protein segment, has sought to take advantage of the protein and cost advantages of soybean meal as an affordable prote ...

  10. 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 ...
