7 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.7
Budget: 05/14/15 - 12/31/15

The opportunities we are pursuing are in the larger and more diverse animal/fish feed markets, where protein cost, amino acid balance, and digestibility are key drivers. Highly concentrated and purified protein ingredients are not necessary in these markets, and are too expensive due to 1) the aforementioned issues with processing costs and low ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.7-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Aquaculture is the fastest growing segment in U.S. food production, and in 2011 NOAA estimated that the U.S. aquaculture industry was worth $1.2 billion. The FAO estimates that aquaculture will soon overtake captured fisheries as a source of food fish. The rapid global expansion of aquaculture has led to a corresponding increase in demand for fi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.7-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a microbial process to economically upgrade distillers & #39; dried grains with solubles (DDGS) into an omega-3 enhanced DDGS (Omega-3 DDGS) to replace essential fatty acids found in fish oil commonly used in aquaculture diets. This Omega-3 DDGS will also provide highly digesti...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BC-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a process to produce high quality soy protein concentrate (HQSPC) as a fish meal replacer in aquaculture feeds, while providing a binding agent for extrusion and an immunoprophylactic for disease control. Increased demand for fish protein and reduced wild captured fish h...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BC-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a process to produce high quality soy protein concentrate (HQSPC) as a fish meal replacement in aquaculture feeds, while providing a binding agent for extrusion and an immunostimulant for disease control. The proposed innovation is a microbially-based process to economic...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.7-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

In 2007, wild captured fish accounted for about 15.7% of the animal protein consumed by humans on a global basis, and per capita consumption of fish and shellfish products is increasing, parallel with the global human population. Unfortunately, harvest rates of wild fish have decreased by ~0.7 mmt per year over the past 20 years, and the FAO rec...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.8-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

The goal of the project is to genetically engineer photosynthetic cyanobacteria that will synthesize farnesene from carbon dioxide. The work will then involve shutting down pathways that compete for carbon in an attempt to maximize the amount of farnesene that can be produced. Then we will do tolerance testing by culturing the cyanobacteria in v...
