  2. Low-Cost Succinate Production Using Grain Sorghum and Engineered E. coli

    SBC: AgRenew, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Succinic acid is referred to as a "platform chemical" because it can be reacted with other molecules to create several industrial chemicals. The current 10 million lb/year market for synthetic succinic acid is limited due to cost of manufacture. If successful, this project will result in a low-cost succinic acid bioprocess, thereby increasing market potential and helping to move the United States ...

  3. Poly (Lactic Acid)/Starch Blend for a Degradable Agricultural Mulch Film

    SBC: AgRenew, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agricultural mulch films are used for the production of vegetables and fruits. Thin plastic films (typically polyethylene) are spread along the rows of plants at the beginning of the growing season. Holes are made in the films to plant the seeds or seedlings. The use of mulch films speeds the ripening of crops, conserves moisture and fertilizer, and inhibits weed growth, fungus infection and insec ...

  5. GPS-Based Animal Control System

    SBC: AgriTech Electronics, L.C.            Topic: N/A

    This is a Phase II proposal to continue the work begun by AgriTech Electronics, LC (AgriTech) on a GPS-based livestock control system. This system will exclude animals from areas, or contain them within defined boundaries, where it is impractical or inefficient to build fence to achieve this objective. These needs arise in a variety of contexts, including the exclusion of livestock from riparian a ...

  6. Integrated System for Surface Pasteurization of Food

    SBC: Alkar-RapidPak, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ready-to-eat meat or poultry products that undergo further handling after cooking (e.g. peeling or slicing) show the highest prevalence of Listeria monocytogenes (one to ten percent). Though rare, listeriosis is responsible for 20 to 30 percent of foodborne disease-related deaths. Therefore, the industry has adopted, among other methods, post-packaging pasteurization to control Listeria monocytoge ...

  8. Economic Feasibility Study of Agricultural Coops as Catalysts in GHG Markets

    SBC: Augusta Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Domestically and globally, governments have established greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions management measures, including regulatory and voluntary regimes, with opportunities for market-based trading of GHG emissions reduction units (ERUs). Previous research has revealed that numerous on-farm activities can significantly reduce GHG emissions. Therefore, farm owners could provide the emerging markets w ...

  9. Delivering the Health, Environmental and Economic Benefits of Trails to Rural Americans through a High Efficiency Trail Assessment Process

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    The Universal Trail Assessment Process (UTAP) and TrailWare, software for UTAP data, were developed to obtain objective trail information. Over 700 people within Federal, State, local and non-profit agencies have been UTAP trained throughout the US. Requiring 9 to 15 person hours per mile of trail is the primary factor that limits the use of UTAP. Over 85% of rural land managers consider objective ...

  10. Recreation Trail Vehicle Barrier Providing Access to Personal Mobility Devices

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    People with mobility impairments are excluded from trails, shared-use paths, parks and other public areas where barriers are erected to prevent access by motorized trail vehicles (MTVs). To ensure the safety of trail users and the integrity of the natural environment, many recreation and/or transportation trails prohibit the use of motorized vehicles. Gates and other barriers are erected at all tr ...
