  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 Biodegradable Water-Soluble Films from Pectin and Starch Blends

    SBC: Bioplastics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project envisages new biodegradable, water-soluble films produced from blends of pectin and starch for commercial applications. The proposed research focuses on developing films by melt extrusion of plasticized blends of pectin and starch. The extruded films will be characterized in terms of blend morphology, mechanical properties, and barrier prop ...

  4. Novel, High-Performance Architectural Roof Coatings from Epoxidized Soybean Oil

    SBC: Chem Link Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this project, we will develop cost-effective, environmentally benign architectural roof coatings derived from agricultural products. Each year more than 5 billion pounds of material are used for roof coatings leading to the emission of more than 2.5 billion pounds of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Our preliminary studies have shown that cationic photopolymerizations of epoxidized soybean ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF A DEEP BOREHOLE PERMEAMETER TO DETERMINE UNSATURATED HYDRAULIC PROPERTIES DEVELOPMENT OF A DEEP BOREHOLE PERMEAMETER TO DETERMINE UNSATURATED HYDRAULIC PROPERTIES

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

    PREDICTING THE RATE OF SOIL WATER MOVEMENT AND THE IMPACT OFAGRI-CHEMICALS ON WATER RESOURCES IS VITALLY IMPORTANT TO MANAGING AGRICULTURE, FOR OPTIMIZING PRODUCTIVITY AND MINIMIZING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT. SOPHISTICATED MODELS FOR MAKING SUCH PREDICTIONS ARE AVAILABLE, BUT DATA ON SOIL HYDRAULIC PROPERTIES ARE DIFFICULT AND OFTEN EXPENSIVE TO OBTAIN. IN FACT, AT DEPTHS BELOW THE ROOT ZONE THERE IS ...

  7. ONE-STEP INFLOW/OUTFLOW CELL TO DETERMINE SOIL HYDRAULIC PROPERTIES

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

    THE RELATIONSHIP AMONG WATER POTENTIAL, HYDRAULIC CONDUCTIVITY, AND WATER CONTENT (P-K-O) ARE SOME OF THE MOST COMMONLY SOUGHT SOIL PHYSICAL PROPERTIES. PREDICTION OF WATER AND SOLUTE MOVEMENT IN BOTH AGRICULTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SITUATIONS IS ULTIMATELY PREDICATED UPON AN ADEQUATE EXPERIMENTAL DESCRIPTION OF POROUS MEDIA. A RAPID AND ACCURATE METHOD TO DETERMINE THESE RELATIONSHIPS WOULD FIND W ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
