The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Ethanol Dual-Fuel Engine Retrofits to Displace Diesel Usage in Farm Equipment

    SBC: ClearFlame Engines, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Diesel engines are critical to the agriculture sector--and in many other applications--due to their strong performance and vaunted durability. However, despite their many benefits, these engines are tied to the dirty emissions and price volatility of Diesel fuel. This Diesel dependence puts pressure on manufacturers to meet increasingly stringent emissions standards, and forces users to accept inc ...

  2. Smart Sensor for Aquaculture Nitrogen Using Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: ENERTREX CORP.            Topic: 87

    The country increasingly seeks locally produced, healthy food. Shrimp can provide significantly to these desires while reducing dependence on imports and enabling creation of jobs in all strata of society.To realize these benefits, the cost of shrimp production needs to be reduced to meet the existing competitive market. The success of our project will bring high-technology at low cost to a key co ...

  3. A new class of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) autogenous vaccine produced in a novel porcine macrophage cell line

    SBC: APTIMMUNE BIOLOGICS, INC.            Topic: 83

    Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) virus first appeared in the United States of America in the late 1980's and causes a disease characterized by reproductive failure in sows and significant respiratory distress in growing and finishing swine. Being a major economic problem for the pork industry, the National Pork Board (NPB) considers the control and elimination of PRRS virus ...

  4. An Improved Release System for Ethylene Inhibitors to Invrease the Shelf-Life of Post-Harvest Agricultural Products

    SBC: Hazel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Each year in the United States, over $30B in produce goes to waste due to spoilage. Degradation of produce in inventories is a tax on agricultural production that reduces the overall productivity and resource efficiency of US agriculture. Less waste means that growers and shippers of produce end up with more dollars in their pocket, and that nutritious and high quality produce can make it to the c ...

  5. Point-of-Use Diagnostic Instrumentation for Plant Infectious Disease

    SBC: K2 Biomicrosystems Llc            Topic: 813

    SUMMARYThe primary objective of this SBIR Phase I project is the design, fabrication and validation of portable prototype instrumentation which will permit growers and other stakeholders in the agricultural community to rapidly and accurately diagnose plant infectious diseases, directly at the point of testing. Such infectious diseases, if incorrectly diagnosed and improperly treated, can result i ...

  6. An Improved Release System for Ethylene Inhibitors to Increase the Shelf Life of Post-Harvest Agricultural Products

    SBC: Hazel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Nearly 50% of produce is wasted throughout the agricultural supply chain. A significant fraction of this loss is through produce senescence, deterioration with age. In almost all plants, senescence is accelerated by ethylene gas, a hormone that plants produce as they age or are damaged. For decades, 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) gas has been used to inhibit ethylene action in plants and produce ind ...

  7. Heat Integrated Reactive Distillation for Synthesis of Bio-based Plasticizers, Solvents and Coatings

    SBC: E3TECSERVICE, LLC            Topic: 88

    The global market for bio-based chemicals is at a critical stage of development. With the focus shifting to development of new bio-based routes to chemicals, new synthesis processes with low capital costs (CAPEX) and high energy efficiency need to be developed that will truly compete with their petroleum derived counterparts. For the market to reach its full potential, techno-economic, health, and ...

  8. A new class of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) autogenous vaccine produced in a novel porcine macrophage cell line

    SBC: APTIMMUNE BIOLOGICS, INC.            Topic: 83

    Swine morbidity and mortality caused by porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) virus is a threat to the U.S. pork industry causing losses of $664 million last year that may exceed $700 million in 2014. Vaccines against PRRS virus have failed to stem the occurrence of PRRS in U.S. herds. Here we propose to ascertain the technical feasibility of developing an effective autogenous (kill ...

  9. Development of an Efficient On-Farm Fertilizer Manufacturing System Utilizing a Pulsed Microwave Air to Nitric Oxide Plasma Reactor Powered

    SBC: N-OVATION, INC.            Topic: 812

    Until early in the 20th century, nitrate fertilizer was manufactured by the electric arc process using water, air, and cheap hydroelectric power. Because this electric arc process was extremely inefficient, by the 1930s the process was replaced by the Haber-Bosch ammonia process which utilizes natural gas to manufacture nitrogen fertilizer in the form of ammonia. Not only does the Haber-Bosch proc ...
