  1. 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. ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. HIGH-SPEED LASER-BASED FRUIT AND VEGETABLE MATURITY MEASURING SYSTEM

    SBC: Astleford Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AT THE PRESENT TIME, ALL MATURITY SORTING OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, SUCH AS APPLES, PEACHES ANDTOMATOES, IS ACCOMPLISHED EITHER BY HAND, BY COLOR OR BY THE USE OF THE MAGNESS-TAYLOR . EACH OF THESE TECHNIQUES HAVE MAJOR DISADVANTAGES IN THE HIGH-SPEED MATURITY GRADING OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES. THE ANNUAL VALUE OF THE THREE NAMED FOOD CROPS ALONE IS IN EXCESS OF ONE BILLION DOLLARS, AND THE OPPORTU ...

  6. Mahimahi Caviar: A New, Sustainable

    SBC: Atlantic Aquaculture            Topic: N/A

    With the breakup of the Soviet Union, sturgeon caviar has become largely unavailable.Shortages of caviar coupled with increasing prices have promoted the production of alternate"caviars" such as paddlefish, lumpfish, whitefish and salmon. Over-exploitation of the sourcefish for these alternate caviars has in many cases resulted in heavily depleted stocks since the fishmust be sacrificed to obtain ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
