  7. Retail Business to Promote Consumption of Processed Foods that Contribute Key Nutrients of Concern to Consumers

    SBC: HEAT LOCATORS LLC            Topic: 85

    The food desert environment is recognized as a major obstacle for access to, and consumption of, healthy food choices by many low income and minority consumers. This has resulted in disparities in obesity and related chronic diseases such as Type II diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Efforts to address this problem have included increased nutrition education, school interventions and urban farmi ...

  8. Innovative Low Cost Solar Air Heating for Poultry House Ventilation

    SBC: AMERICAN SOLAR INC            Topic: 812

    American Solar, Inc. proposes to research and analyze two low cost solar air heating systems for poultry houses. The solar heating systems will use an existing poultry house metal roof and a new wall-mounted, solar curtain system to harvest renewable, solar heated air. The solar heated air will displace cold outside ventilation air that would be brought into the house and require heating by non-re ...

  10. Biological feedback control of LED grow lights

    SBC: PhytoSynthetix            Topic: 813

    In controlled environment agricultural (CEA) systems (greenhouses and indoor plant production facilities) light is the most energy consuming, and yet the least controlled, input factor for plant growth. Plants can dissipate up to 80% of the absorbed light energy as heat through physiological protective mechanisms (non photochemical quenching) and this light cannot be used for plant growth. Light e ...
