  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 ...

  5. Novel lure for more sensitive monitoring of potato psyllid

    SBC: ALPHA SCENTS, INC.            Topic: 813

    The goal of this proposal is to develop host-plant attractants that Potato Psyllid (PP) utilize to find and colonize host plants. PP exhibits a marked preference for potato volatiles and trough feeding process changes composition of the volatile blend. Semiochemicals (host-plant volatiles) are commonly used to manipulate insect behaviors in IPM programs such as monitoring insect pest populations f ...

  7. A Low-Cost Quantitative Anemia Detection Method for Livestock

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 83

    Gastrointestinal parasites are the most important pathogens of sheep and goats worldwide. Anemia is the primary sign of internal parasite infection, and many sheep die of blood loss anemia secondary to abomasal parasites. Anemia results in pale mucous membranes and conjunctiva in animals and humans. This SBIR project will develop a mobile App to determine the hemoglobin blood count in large animal ...

  8. A Particulate Mass Flux Sensor for the Food Process Industry

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 85

    Currently, the vast majority of food products are made using batch processing. However, in most manufacturing operations, continuous processing methods provide for higher efficiency as well as greater quality in the finished product. This paradigm is not yet present in the food industry due to one primary reason. Processed food products need to have the correct amount of ingredients mixed together ...

  9. Modular Shading Structure for High Value Fruits and Vegetables

    SBC: Trellis Growing Systems            Topic: 813

    Commercial farms growing high value fruits and vegetables use shade structures to create protected environments. These growers benefit from bigger yields, better quality produce, fewer pests, timed crop growth, and resource conservation. Unfortunately, shade structure use is limited for many small and medium size farms who lack economy of scale. Commercial shade structures available today are very ...
