  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Protein Quantity and Quality for Channel Catfish Feeds

    SBC: Indi-Bel, Inc. dba Delta Western Research Center            Topic: N/A

    Protein is the most expensive component comprising a catfish feed; thus, a reduction in feed cost can most likely be achieved by either reducing the concentration of dietary protein, by using less expensive plant proteins, or by a combination of these factors. Feedstuffs of animal origin are expensive yet they are generally considered to be essential in catfish feeds. If low-protein, all plant-p ...

  5. Development of Improved Carbonation Technologies for Low-Cost Production of Rapid-Set Cement-Bonded Particleboards

    SBC: DPD, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cement-bonded particleboard is an environmentally safe high-performance reconstituted wood product with desirable longevity, fire resistance and life-cycle cost position, presenting a great potential to maintain the competitive position of reconstituted wood boards in demanding construction markets. The low productivity of cement-bonded particleboard plants and the inhibitory effects of some wood ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF TRANSPARENT HIGH BARRIER FILMS FOR FOOD PACKAGING APPLICATIONS UTILIZING A HIGH PERFORMANCE THIN GLASS-LIKE COATING

    SBC: ENERGY CONVERSION DEVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ENERGY CONVERSION DEVICES, INC. (ECD) HAS DEVELOPED A HIGH PERFORMANCE, THIN FILM GLASS-LIKE COATING (CLEAR COAT (TM)) AND DEPOSITION PROCESS THAT CAN IMPROVE THE BARRIER PROPERTIES OF COMMODITY POLYMER FILMS BY A FACTOR OF 100. THE COATING IS TRANSPARENT, COLORLESS, NONTOXIC, LOW COST AND DOES NOT EFFECT THE RECYCLABILITY OF THE POLYMER FILM. PILOT-SCALE PRODUCTION OF HIGH PERFORMANCE FILMS WITH ...

  9. Production of Phytase for Use in Animal Feed

    SBC: ESA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is a substantial and growing interest among swine and poultry producers in the application of phytase to improve the nutritional quality in animal feeds. Demonstrated benefits include improved feed yield ratios and reduction in the environmental costs associated with the disposal of animal wastes. Enzyme Design, Inc. offers an enabling technology (the EnzyMatrix expression system) for the ...

  10. Nitrate Reductase Based Nitrate Test Kit for Home and Farm Water Supplies

    SBC: THE NITRATE ELIMINATION CO INC            Topic: N/A

    Nitrate contamination of water is a national problem with direct impact on farmers and rural communities. High nitrate content in potable and animal feed water affects quality of life for humans and threatens productivity from livestock. Existing nitrate determination methods have a number of drawbacks: 1) lack of sensitivity, 2) inclusion of toxic reagents, and/or 3) difficulty of interpretati ...
