  1. Electrocatalytic Oxidation of Lignin to High-Value Aromatics

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 81

    Significant quantities of biomass are produced annually which represent a huge possible feedstock for biofuels and other valuable chemicals and materials. Numerous industrial processes are available for utilization of the cellulosic fraction of this biomass. However, as much as 40-50% of the biomass is composed of lignin, a cross-linked, aromatic polymer, for which at present there are few economi ...

  2. Development of Reliable, Economical Briquetting of Torrefied Forest Residue Without Binders to Produce Sturdy, Water Resistant Briquettes

    SBC: HM3 ENERGY, INC.            Topic: 81

    Unlike raw wood pellets, energy dense torrefied biomass pellets or briquettes share important traits with coal which make them a promising alternative clean fuel to use directly in coal plants. They are brittle (not fibrous, like raw pellets), so they can be pulverized just like coal before being fed into the coal boiler. They also have similar BTU content to coal and are water resistant, so they ...

  4. Protecting Ponderosa Pine from Dendroctonus with VerbPlus Repel

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 81

    This SBIR proposal targets the western pine beetle (WPB) Dendroctonus brevicomis LeConte (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae), the most destructive insect pest of ponderosa pine, Pinus ponderosa Douglas ex Lawson, in much of western North America. This insect causes high levels of tree mortality, inflicting millions of dollars in losses each year. One million or more trees, equivalent to more t ...

  6. Program Code 8.1: Forests and Related Resources, Subtopic 7: Sustainable Bioenergy and Development of Value-Added Products From Forest Resou

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 81

    For sustainable forests, residues must be managed at low cost. If residues could be converted to a valuable energy product, then management costs would be offset, leading to improved forests. To create a valuable energy product from low density residues, they must be densified to reduce handling, transport and storage costs. In this project, the technical feasibility of the low cost Biomass Fuel B ...

  7. Operational SAR Forest Structure and Disturbance Metrics

    SBC: APPLIED GEOSOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: 81

    The goal of the SBIR is to "Operationalize multiscale Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) forest structure and disturbance metrics". The objectives are to develop 1.) operational forest structure and disturbance metrics derived from Synthetic Aperture Radar and 2.) mapping information services for rapid forest disturbance assessment. A set of practical questions to be answered at three demons ...

  8. Work Tool Innovation for Farm Land Management and Wildfire Abatement

    SBC: HILL MANUFACTURING, INC.            Topic: 812

    For rural farmers and ranchers with small and mid-sized operations who suffer losses in efficiency due to unproductive pastures and damage and property loss due to wild fires, the envisioned tree saw is an auxiliary tractor attachment with the potential to rapidly and safely remove large trees, brush, and undergrowth. Unlike current heavy and expensive attachments that require non-traditional farm ...

  9. Pythium root-rot suppression from vermicompost to improve the profitability of hydroponic baby leaf spinach production.

    SBC: RT SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: 812

    Hydroponic vegetable production in the U.S. has experienced steady substantial growth due to its ability to produce fresh produce, year round close to the source(s) of consumption. A major obstacle to hydroponic production is the gap in effective conventional fungicides and sustainable/organic nutrient sources to protect edible raw food crop against significant root diseases such as Pythium. Fresh ...

  10. Hawaii Grown Camellia Sinensis Tea R&D Processing

    SBC: TEA HAWAII CO            Topic: 812

    Agribusiness in Hawaii County overwhelmingly consists of small farms which range from 1 to 49 acres in size. Of the 4650 farms in Hawaii County, all but 471 are less than 50 acres, with the median farm size consisting of 6 acres (USDA 2007). While the majority of Hawaii & #39;s larger agribusinesses can achieve economies of scale, meaning they have the capacity to produce and bring to market t ...
