  1. 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 ...

  3. Good Natured Food Campus- An Economic and Cultural Engine for the NorthSide Regeneration Plan

    SBC: RAINBOW ORGANIC FARMS CO            Topic: 812

    A vastly under-served community, located in an impoverished, 1,500-acre tract in the city of St. Louis, Missouri, is in dire need of increased accessibility to nutritious food. Most of the buildings are torn down, decayed, and abandoned. There are no grocery stores selling nutritious, local, and fresh foods; it is very much a food desert. However, a great opportunity to enrich the lives of this co ...

  4. Development of a Sorghum Doubled Haploid Breeding System

    SBC: HEARTLAND PLANT INNOVATIONS            Topic: 82

    Sorghum acres in the United States and around the world are declining. If this trend is to be reversed, new tools for sorghum crop improvement are needed. Sorghum is a naturally drought-tolerant, heat-resistant crop that can play an important role in meeting ever-increasing global needs for food, feed, and fuel. However, sorghum lags behind other crops in making progress on breeding for yield incr ...

  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 ...

  8. Single-injection, self-contained booster vaccine

    SBC: ORBIS BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: 83

    Vaccination is a particularly powerful weapon in the fight against wide-spread livestock disease. Commercially available vaccines, however, are often difficult and costly for livestock producers to use properly, leaving individual animals - and by extension the global food supply - at risk. More specifically, many vaccines on the market today require multiple injections spaced several weeks apart ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: Innovations in manufacturing technology for a probiotic containing Megasphaera elsdenii NCIMB 41125

    SBC: MEGASTARTER, LLC            Topic: 83

    Use of high-concentrate diets in cattle production is a common practice in the United States to maximize production efficiency, enhance meat quality, and minimize meat and milk cost of production. Transition from high-fiber to high-concentrate diets is challenging and put the animals at risk for acidosis. Megastarter LLC is commercializing a liquid Megasphaera elsdenii culture, Lactipro, helping c ...

  10. Phosphorus removal from ethanol condensed thin stillage to produce a profitable, recycled fertilizer, while improving surface water quality.

    SBC: KANSAS ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES LLC            Topic: 84

    The expansion of the ethanol industry has led to the wide spread availability and economic pricing of distillers grains (DGS), resulting in significant amounts of DGS being commonly included in animal diets. DGS typically replaces corn and protein supplements in the ration, but is has a much higher phosphorus concentration than corn. Therefore, the inclusion of DGS in livestock rations can signifi ...
