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. Production of Hydrogen from Agricultural Waste

    SBC: Utah State University            Topic: N/A

    This small business innovative research proposal is directed to methods for generating hydrogen using anaerobic digestion. This patent pending system differs in three ways form other anaerobic systems now being tried: First the substrate to control PH in the digester for hydrogen production will be a waste product: second the digestion and hydrogen production will be high rate and third the proces ...

  2. Development of Protein Modified Milk for Prevention and Treatment of Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus

    SBC: Wendtech International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Biospecific absorption methodology will be developed to remove bovine serum albumin (BSA) from cow's milk for use in infant formulas as insulin dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM) is thought to be an auto immune reaction in diabetes prone individuals, which ultimately results in pancreatic Beta cell destruction. BSA is a minor protein in cow's milk, but significantly contributes to IDDM. Using ce ...

  3. Novel Process for Production of Fatty Acids from Lignocellulosic Biomass

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 88

    Environmental Benefits: The proposed technology relates to Climate change and sustainable energy. Fatty acids are currently produced from palm oil, 80% of which comes from Malaysia and Indonesia. Both these countries have finite land available and often times rainforests are destroyed to make way for palm plantations. This activity puts tremendous strain on ecological balance. Moreover, a signific ...

  4. Novel Process for Production of Fatty Acids from Lignocellulosic Biomass

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 88

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will demonstrate techno-economic feasibility of a novel bioprocess to produce fatty acids from lignocellulosic biomass leading to commercialization. These fatty acids are primary components of several consumer products such as skincare, cosmetics, soaps, shampoos and vitamins. The proposed process utilizes metabolically engineered E. coli cu ...

  5. Improve Competitiveness of Specialty Crop Production through a New Product Quality Verification Method

    SBC: SMART VISION WORKS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Agricultural sorting and grading is most commonly preformed primarily through the use of human resources. Farm workers sort crops by hand through visual inspection. This process is expensive and highly subjective. In addition the labor force is susceptible to human error which can impact the quality of the resulting data. The outcome of this project will be to increase efficiencies in the grading ...

  6. Improve Competitiveness of Specialty Crop Production through a New Product Quality Verification Method

    SBC: Smart Vision Works International LLC            Topic: 813

    In order for America to remain competitive in the world market in agriculture production and processing it must continue to innovate and create technologies that decrease the cost of food production. If America can do so, it maintains the ability to produce high quality products. Sorting and grading is an expensive and time consuming part of agriculture production and decreasing its cost through t ...

  7. Disruptive Transport/Coalescing Filtration Technology for Lipid Collection from Dilute Cultivated Algal Suspension

    SBC: Heightened Technologies            Topic: 88

    A sustainable supply of renewable biofuel will contribute to the Nation's energy security. Algal biomass is seen as having potential to be a significant source of renewable bioenergy. Microalgae-derived biofuel provides a high oil productivity with a smaller land footprint than terrestrial biofuel crops. It captures carbon dioxide and can grow on marginal lands or with salty aquifer water or w ...

  8. Genetically Enhanced Nitrogen Fixation with Algae Biofilms

    SBC: Fulcrum Bioscience, LLC            Topic: 87

    This project will develop an algae-base nitrogen fixation process for commercial ammonia production for the agronomy market. This process operates under standard conditions. The technology utilizes a whole-cell mutant algae strain grown on an electrode surface and takes advantage of enzymatic pathways to make ammonia at standard conditions. The primary inputs are electricity and water. Compared to ...

  9. New Electro-Hydraulic Foot Prosthesis

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: 84133S2

    This project develops an electronic-controlled version of the advanced hydraulic foot/ankle (MCI Foot) demonstrating the feasibility of the automatic adjustment of resistance throughout the range of motion. The advanced MCI Foot, especially the automatic-controlled version, contributes to the function of the prosthesis wearer, resulting in advanced and more natural walking benefits. The project ob ...
