  3. Phosphorus removal from ethanol thin stillage to produce a low phosphorus livestock feed and a valuable granular fertilizer.

    SBC: KANSAS ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES LLC            Topic: 84

    Grain ethanol production byproducts or ?coproducts? are commonly used in modern beef finishing rations. The term distillers grains (DGS) is intended to include these and similar coproducts. The expansion of the ethanol industry has led to the wide spread availability and economic pricing of DGS, resulting in significant amounts of DGS being commonly included in beef finishing rations. The fermenta ...

  4. Development of a modular submersible mussel raft for use in semi-exposed Maine waters subject to drift ice.

    SBC: PEMAQUID MUSSEL FARMS, L.L.C.            Topic: 87

    In this SBIR Phase I project, Pemaquid Mussel Farms (PMF) seeks to determine the feasibility of fabricating a submersible mussel raft that will eliminate problems associated with surface mussel rafts (mussel drop off, wave and ice damage to rafts, lower yields, visual impacts) while improving crop production and quality. In the northeast and northwestern U.S., the preferred method of mussel suspen ...

  5. Soil profile water content sensing system based on TDR

    SBC: Acclima, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Researchers who develop high water use efficiency plants are in great need of precisely monitoring the uptake of water by their prototype plants at various segments of its root zone. They need to know how each plant variation utilizes water in producing food and from where the water is drawn. Currently they have no accurate options for getting this data. This device will provide a new, accurate to ...

  8. A non-invasive high-throughput sleep stage analysis system

    SBC: Pinnacle Technology, Inc.            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Degeneration of sleep quality with age is a well-documented phenomenon. While much is known regarding the characterization of this decline, remarkably little of the physiology or genetic underpinnings are understood. Age-related sleep changes in rodents (mice + rats) are remarkably similar to those seen in human populations and as such these animal models are f ...
