  4. Ambient Temperature Oxidation Catalyst for Ethylene Control in Fresh Produce Containers

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The respiration of fresh fruits and vegetables (FF & V) converts oxygen from the surrounding atmosphere into carbon dioxide, moisture and ethylene. While ethylene is used under controlled conditions as a ripening agent, the presence of even small amounts of ethylene gas in shipping and storage containers causes most fresh produce to deteriorate faster, potentially spoiling it before it reaches ...

  5. Over the Top Citrus Harvesting Equipment for Fresh Markets in High Density Groves

    SBC: GEO-SPIDER, INCORPORATED            Topic: 813

    Phase I of this project will seek to establish feasibility of the selective harvesting system for high density grove through scaled prototype testing. Our focus will be on developing a new end effector concept with an integrated hyper-redundant forearm, along with an integrated fruit detection sensory suite. This system will be integrated and tested using our most advanced image processing and vis ...

  6. Preventing Bone Loss and Weight Gain with Combinations of Vitamin D and Phytochemicals

    SBC: Aptotec, Inc.            Topic: 85

    Obesity and osteoporosis are major public health concerns due to their prevalence in our increasingly sedentary and aging society. In the U.S. today, an estimated 55% of people 50 and older are at risk for developing osteoporosis. Because as much as 20% of bone mass can be lost in the first five to seven years following menopause, osteoporosis is a major health issue for aging women. In 2005, oste ...

  7. Improved Strategies for Elevated Vermicomposting Systems

    SBC: SKOLEX BIOTECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 84

    The agricultural community's relationship with urban centers has always been complicated and highly dynamic. Recent US Census data indicates that "agricultural America" is growing the fastest at the transition zones near urban areas. At the same time there is strong interest by those living in cities and suburbs to participate in food production and farming. In conjunction with thes ...

  8. Mechanical Scrubber for Aquaculture Netting

    SBC: LINDGREN-PITMAN, INC.            Topic: 87

    Net cleaning and maintenance represent a significant cost in the aquaculture industry. Clean nets are essential in maintaining a healthy stock, and achieving optimal yield. Fouled nets also generate drag, and the dirtier the net, the higher the loading on moored structures in the farm, which could lead to failures. However, few options exist that are truly efficient in terms of their consumption o ...

  9. Sustainable Green Diesel Production: Upgrading Biomass Waste Pyrolysis Oil

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 88

    The explosive growth of biofuels in recent years has shown that there is great potential for biomass to be a raw material for the production of transportation fuels. Possibly the most economical means to produce biofuels is by the liquification of biomass (fast pyrolysis) and subsequent upgrading. This method is also potentially the most sustainable, provided the feedstock is produced sustainably. ...
