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. Cost Effective and Reliable Anaerobic Digestion for Agricultural By-products


    The current problem with on farm anaerobic digesters is the high failure rate. Some failures are do to plugging because of the viscous and heterogeneous nature of agricultural animal waste. Other digesters have been abandoned because the management of the digester was too difficult or required to much time. The purpose of this project is to develop a novel method along with the machinery capable f ...

  2. Dietary L-Thyroxine to Induce Molt Without Feed Withdrawal in Laying Chicken, Broiler Breeder, and Turkey Breeder Hens to Extend Production

    SBC: Hooge Consulting Service            Topic: N/A

    Molting (reproductive rejuvenation) of poultry to extend table or fertile egg production is a well accepted commercial practice in the U.S. However, the conventional method of ~10-day feed withdrawal to induce molt is increasingly viewed as unacceptable by McDonald's, Wendy's, AVMA, and the egg consuming public. The use of dietary L-thyroxine (T4; the natural molting hormone) for poultry can provi ...

  3. Odor Control for Deep Pit Swine Confinement Facilities: Testing the Rapp Technology

    SBC: Rapp Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The pork industry is experiencing difficulties with animal waste management. Pork producers are being sued because of the stench and by groups pollution. Air pollution is associated with odor, ammonia and hydrogen sulfide emissions and water pollution is associated with the buildup of nitrogen and phosphorous from manure. New lagoons are banned in many regions. The Rapp technology could revolution ...

  4. Project PREPARE: Preparing preschoolers and kindergartners who are deaf to learn to read by teaching them early critical service words typically visually and linguistically inaccessible to them through a computer-based instruction product

    SBC: HOPE, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Children with significant hearing loss continually exhibit low reading levels, due in part to the difficulty they face upon entering school of understanding basal reading vocabulary, especially critical service words. Service words cannot easily be learned through the use of pictures or objects but constitute up to 75% of all words used in basal readers, including prepositions, conjunctions, artic ...

  5. Invitational Priority 4: Developing an Authoring Tool that Promotes Accessibility

    SBC: MSF&W            Topic: N/A

    Promotion of access to information in educational, employment, and community settings to develop an "accessibility first" authoring tool to support actively technical authors in the creation of accessible electronic documents

  6. Maintainable Solution-Derived Nanocoatings for Advanced Boiler Systems

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: 15b

    78188S Ultra-Supercritical (USC) coal-fired power plants are being designed to meet the Vision 21 goals of fuel efficiency and environmental emission standards. The material systems for these plants will be required to limit degradation occuring from corrosion at elevated temperatures. Due to higher operational temperatures in USC plants (up to 750 C), the environments encountered in these plant ...

  7. Development of a Fourier-Transform Infrared Gas Analyzer to Measure Carbon Isotopes of CO2.

    SBC: Campbell Scientific, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    79737B Only half of the estimated carbon delivered to the atmosphere by human activities in the 1990s remains there. The "missing" carbon was absorbed by terrestrial ecosystems and oceans, thus mitigating human perturbations to the carbon cycle. Carbon isotopes play a central role in understanding this terrestrial carbon sink at a variety of scales, but instrumentation to directly measure carbon ...

  8. Electrolytic Process to Produce Sodium Hypochlorite Using NaSICON Ceramic Membranes

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 19d

    79513S Sodium hypochlorite is an industrial chemical that is produced with technologies that rely on organic membranes and undivided cell methods, which have performance limitations from fouling and limited selecivity. This project will develop an innovative and energy efficient, low temperature, cost-effective, and environmental friendly electrochemical process that uses a sodium-ion-conducting ...

  9. High Volume Utilization of Fly Ash Containing Mercury-Impregnated Activated Carbon

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 11

    79234S In January of 2004, the EPA published draft regulations for the control of mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants, and one of the most promising technologies for controlling mercury involves the treament of flue gas with activated carbon. As a consequence, the fly ash collected from power plants contains high concentrations of mercury-impregnated activated carbon, which would make ...

  10. Robust Microsenors for Automobile Exhaust Monitoring and Control

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 31b

    79252 As environmental regulations become increasingly stringent, there is mounting pressure on automobile manufacturers to substantially lower unburnt hydrocarbon emissions. This will require monitoring the hydrocarbon content in the exhaust with more accuracy than currently possible using the two oxygen sensor system. This requirement is especially important during start-up conditions, which a ...
