  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. Ozone Conversion Of Low Quality Feed Stocks

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Many crop residues, feed byproducts, forages and other biomass have little or no nutritional value asanimal feed. Lignin in these materials is the most significant factor that limits the availability ofstructural carbohydrate (i.e., cellulose and hemicellulose) to microbial flora of ruminant animals.Many chemical treatment methods have been investigated and most result in the production ofundesir ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Fiber-Wall-Filled Thin Hardboard from Low Cost Waste Paper

    SBC: Fiber Research International,            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is the exploration of the feasibility of adapting the fiber-wall-filling technology to improve the properties of wet-process thin hardboard from low-cost waste paper. The patented fiber-wall-filling technology precipitates insoluble inorganic salts within the microporous anatomy of paper fibers. These inorganic depositions comprise the carbonates, silicates, sulfat ...

  5. Electronic Pasteurization of Meat Patties

    SBC: Accelerator Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Accelerator Technology Corp. proposes to develop a compact, cost-effective elctron-beam disinfestation system for pasteurization of meat patties. The system is designed to be integrated into the production line of a conventional meat patty operation. In such operations, the patties are stamped from sheets of ground meat in rows of 4-5 patties, moving on a conveyor at the rate of ~1 row/second. ...

  6. Diesel Fuel Lubricity Additive From Seed Oil

    SBC: International Lubricants            Topic: N/A

    In order to meet the increasingly stringent air quality goals of the Federal Clean Air Act andAmendments (CAAA) major changes have been made in refining diesel fuel to remove sulfur.While reducing sulfur levels in diesel fuel lowers problematic emissions, it also reduces fuellubricity. Sulfur is an important element in combating wear in fuel injection systems.Hydrotreating the fuel for sulfur red ...

  7. Development of IPN Resistant Commercial Rainbow Trout Stocks

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: N/A

    It is estimated that 3 billion rainbow trout eggs were required to produce the world farmed harvest in 1994. The majority of these fish are reared in areas where infectious pancreatic necrosis (IPN) virus is endemic. Unfortunately, mortalities are highest before the fish are fully immunocompetent, making vaccination a less effective tool in disease prevention. Increasing the natural resistance ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Commercial Application Of Molecular

    SBC: Lgl Ecological Genetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the U.S., there are more than 135,000 captive deer and elk on 2,000 ranches in 42 states. Someranchers have used deer to replace or supplement traditional livestock. Primary products of deer aremeat and velvet antler, and the industry is growing. We propose to assist the industry and regulatoryagencies using molecular genetics. Ranchers want genetic tests to help establish breeding programs ...

  10. Biocontrol of Botrytis Cinerea on Greenhouse-Grown Ornamentals

    SBC: Eden Bioscience Corp.on            Topic: N/A

    Floral production in the United States has an estimated value of over $11 billion. Geraniums and roses together constitute a significant portion of this value. Grey mold, caused by Botrytis cinerea Pers.:Fr. is prevalent and often devastating under the cool, moist conditions which are common in greenhouses where the crops are produced. The fungus attacks all of the above ground portions of the ...
