  1. Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering For Field

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The use of sub-therapeutic concentrations of anti-microbial agents in animal feed has contributed to theproductivity of the U.S. meat and dairy industries by preventing infectious diseases, by decreasing theamount of feed required and by increasing the rate of animal weight gain. However, failure to observerecommended practices of drug withdrawal can result in concentrations of antibiotic residue ...

  2. Modifying Lesquerella Oil by Maleic Anhydride for Thermal Setting Coating Materials

    SBC: Bioplastics & Polymers Inc            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project envisages new thermoset coating materials derived from lesquerella oil. The proposed research will result in the creation of markets for lesquerella oil and wil assist the USDA efforts to replace imported castor oil with domestically produced lesquerella oil. Bench-scale investigations of lesquerella oil modification will focus on addition ...

  3. Development Of A Ready-to-assemble

    SBC: Blue Ridge Timberwrights            Topic: N/A

    The ready-to-assemble (RTA) construction system is a new method for assembling wood structuresbuilt from the following engineered wood products: parallel strand lumber (PSL), laminated strandlumber (LSL), and laminated veneer lumber (LVL). The RTA system is designed for rapid assemblyby small crews of unskilled labor using common hand tools. The design of the RTA systemincorporates engineered w ...

  4. A Multiple Antigen Direct Elisa For Diagnosing

    SBC: Commonwealth Biotechnologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV) is a retrovirus that causes a chronic infection in horses. In theabsence of a vaccine, the control of this disease depends on the diagnosis and elimination of infectedhorses. Currently approved diagnostic procedures utilize agar gel diffusion (AGID), or enzyme-linkedimmunosorbant (ELISA) methodologies to detect antibodies against the virus in horse sera as e ...

  5. Gravel Mulch Buffers

    SBC: Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Water quality and soil erosion are high priority issues for U.S. agriculture. In more humid areas of theU.S., vegetation filter strips have proven to be an effective method of reducing erosion and improvingwater quality. Filter strips are less effective in the West due to sparser vegetation and more variablerainfall. In addition, establishment of vegetation is more difficult in many western wat ...

  6. Utilization of Wood Fibers as Secondary Reinforcement in Conventional Concrete Construction

    SBC: DPD, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Past applications of wood fibers in cement-based materials have been limited to the specialty market of thin cement panels. Synthetic fibers have recently gained tremendous popularity as secondary reinforcement in conventional concrete for shrinkage crack control. Concrete reinforcing fibers should provide high levels of slenderness ratio, elastic modulus, tensile and bond strengths, and finenes ...

  7. An Optimal Crop Residue Radiometer

    SBC: Earth Resources And            Topic: N/A

    There is a need for a simple, cost-effective procedure for making accurate estimates of crop residue in agricultural fields. The objectives of this Phase I effort is to conduct the research required to design a light-weight, affordable hand-held spectral radiometer and associated spectral algorithm for quickly making field estimates of percent crop residue cover. The specific tasks that will be ...

  8. CLEAN AND EFFICIENT UTILIZATION FROM AGRICULTURAL RESIDUES

    SBC: EnerTech Environmental, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Phase I research proved the feasibility of EnerTech's Slurry Carbonization technology for economically producing clean and marketable fuels from high-moisture agricultural residues and wastes, especially animal manures. The Slury Carbonization technology effectively transformed low-grade animal residues, through a moderate temperature and pressure carbonization process, into a uniform and especial ...

  9. Natural Cherry Flavor Recovery From Dilute

    SBC: Natura, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The demand for natural flavors is increasing both in America and Europe. This project will optimizean innovative technique to recover benzaldehyde (natural cherry flavor) from cherry pit hydrolyzate.The concept is based on the hydrolysis of crushed cherry pits, adsorption of benzaldehyde fromhydrolyzate passed through an adsorption bed, and recovery of the benzaldehyde by regenerating theadsorbe ...

  10. Commercial Development Of A Sustainable

    SBC: Origen, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Marek's disease vaccines are the most widely used vaccines in the poultry industry. Since there are nosustainable cell lines suitable for propagating Marek's disease virus (MDV), the MDV vaccine industryuses primary chicken embryo fibroblasts (CEF) for production of vaccine virus. CEFs constitute asignificant proportion of the total cost of MDV vaccine production. Therefore, a significant reduc ...
