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. Hybrid System for Ultrasound Signal, Spectral, and Image Analyses to Enhance Meat Quality Evaluation in Food Animals

    SBC: BIOTRONICS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Determining meat quality attributes in food animals is essential for genetic selection, sorting, and marketing. Ultrasound techniques have the potential to benefit the swine industry for improvements in both quality and yield measures by non-destructive means. There is a need to continually improve percentage intramuscular fat estimation accuracy and reduced bias, especially before integration of ...

  2. Enhancing Pork Quality and Value Using Live Animal Ultrasound Technology for Better Breeding and Marketing Decisions

    SBC: BIOTRONICS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Consumers and an ever growing segment of the pork industry know that more optimal levels of marbling must be put back into the high-value pork cuts. Biotronics, Inc. is developing technology to solve this problem by using real-time ultrasound to measure the percent of intramuscular (% IMF) fat in live pigs and hot carcasses. The premise of the project is that swine breeders can be rewarded financi ...

  3. Enhanced Performance of Agriculture Based Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Farm equipment and other industries use biodegradable hydraulic fluids (BHF), esters based on agricultural raw materials, that provide rapid decomposition and reduced environmental problems associated with spills. Hydrolytic stability is major problem, since BHFs react with dissolved water creating alcohols and acids accelerating degradation. This program introduces a membrane system to remove wat ...

  4. Enhanced Processing of Natural Foods

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The development of new technology that can facilitate natural food and flavor biochemistry reactions has potential to have fundamental and tremendous impact on food science and nutrition and other high value products. Reactor time and temperature are an extraordinarily expensive aspect of food and flavor development. Enabling technology that can improve product yield, improve separation, decrease ...

  5. Low Cost Fuel Grade Ethanol

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There continues to be need for production of fuel grade ethanol (FGE) from biomass. This has many advantages including: development of fuel independence; zero net greenhouse gas emissions; strengthen U.S. agricultural base; and excellent replacement for MTBE as oxygenate. CMS has identified novel membrane systems and novel processes for reducing the cost for drying fuel grade ethanol (FGE). Limite ...

  6. Developing a Pyrolysis Platform Biorefinery (1) High Quality Bio-Oil

    SBC: Frontline Bioenergy, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal, lead by Frontline BioEnergy, teams with the Iowa State University (ISU), Center for Sustainable Energy Technologies (CSET) to develop high quality, time-stable and storable fast pyrolysis oils in phase-I that are useful for production of fungible liquid fuels such as diesel, gasoline and jet fuel. Our approach uses novel filtration techniques to reduce total alkali contamination in ...

  7. Ambient Processing and Nutritional Assessment of Trypsin-Inhibitor-Null Soybean Products

    SBC: SCHILLINGER SEED INC            Topic: N/A

    Commercial soybeans require heat processing to deactivate anti-nutrition factors/enzymes. Schillinger Seed has developed a new soybean free of the key anti-nutrition Kunitz Tyrpsin Inhibitor (SKTI-Null). This new SKTI-Null) soybean presents the opportunity for ambient or cold processing of soybeans for use in food and feed. The elimination of heat processing eliminates the need of a signifcant amo ...

  8. Autogenous replicon particle (ARP) vaccines for porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrom virus (PRRSV)

    SBC: HARRISVACCINES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is a clear and immediate need for improved PRRSV vaccines. PRRS is estimated to cost pork producers in the U.S. nearly $600 million annually and with a national eradication effort being proposed, the need for a second generation vaccine tool that is effective and safe is crucial. The use of a vector such as replicon particles (RP) merges subunit and modified live technologies to safely induc ...

  9. Rural Iowa Dialysis Patient Record Management and Transfer Method

    SBC: Tripletail Ventures, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Tripletail Ventures, Inc. aims to facilitate the creation, adoption, organization, update, transmission, portability, and sharing of rural patient health records, specifically for a Medicare certified dialysis unit. Many rural dialysis units in Iowa do not have access to their patients complete records, spend considerable time and expense tracking vital information from other providers, and do not ...

  10. Enhancing Homologous Recombination in Plants Through the Use of Custom Endonucleases

    SBC: Advanced Genome Technologies, Llc            Topic: 48

    Homologous recombination (HR) permits the precise insertion, deletion, or substitution of genetic material in the genome of an organism. HR offers numerous opportunities for modifying plant genomes to enhance our understanding of plant gene function and regulation, especially with respect to enhancing the production of biofuels. Although HR normally occurs at very low frequencies, approximately ...
