  3. Wave Energy Conversion to power offshore Aquaculture Operations

    SBC: Ocean Farm Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 8113

    Ocean Farm Technologies, Inc. (OFT) proposes to continue investigating using ocean wave energy in the form of compressed air to power open ocean aquaculture operations.   In Phase I, OPT designed, built and began testing an affordable and efficient wave energy converter (WEC) that generated and stored compressed air.  In Phase II OFT will demonstrate using compressed air from an imp ...

  4. A Web-based Climate Change Drought Decision Support System (C2D2S2)

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 823

    In Phase I, we identified the need for a readily accessible web-based framework that integrates a credible hydrologic model with climate change and forecast products for hydrological impact studies and water supply projections.  The focus in developing the Phase I Climate Change Drought Decision Support System (C2D2S2) prototype was to develop an infrastructure that addresses the critical dec ...

  5. Development of culture methods for marine ornamental fish larvae

    SBC: SEA & REEF AQUACULTURE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The marine aquarium industry is growing rapidly due to the increasing popularity of keeping marine aquariums. Each year approximately 25 million fish are harvested from coral reefs around the world to supply the marine aquarium hobby. The U.S. market accounts for approximately 60% of these wild collected fish. The collection of reef organisms threatens the coral reefs due to frequent overharvestin ...

  6. Catalytic Ethylene Removal

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Fresh fruit, vegetables, and flowers are transported and stored in refrigerated containers. As the produce ripens, ethylene gas is produced, which further ripens the product and can lead to premature spoilage. Most fruits and vegetables emit ethylene gas which promotes ripening. Certain species, such as apples and bananas, produce more ethylene than others. Elevated ethylene levels can significant ...

  7. Genes that impact sorghum grain, sugar, and biomass yield.

    SBC: EG CROP SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of the proposed project is to improve the performance and economic utility of sorghum as a feedstock for ethanol production. High productivity sorghum as an ethanol feedstock will benefit the environment by reducing greenhouse gases and will benefit rural areas of the U.S. by stimulating local production of a high-value crop and associated ethanol refineries. Evolutionary Genomics, Inc. h ...

  8. Lipid-based ELISA test for detection of dairy cattle with Johne`s disease

    SBC: ECKSTEIN DIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Johne?s disease (JD) is a chronic granulomatous inflammation of the intestine in domestic and wild ruminants usually resulting after along incubation period in constant diarrhea with tremendous weight and ultimately death. This disease is caused by the intracellular pathogen Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP). Johne?s disease currently ranks as one of the most costly infectious ...

  9. Developing Elderberries as a Specialty Crop for Herbal Supplements, Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods

    SBC: ELDERTIDE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Although the American elderberry species has not been cultivated, bred, or promoted as a medicinal plant like its European counterpart, university based variety trials indicate that the attributes of American elderberries complement, equal, or exceed the European cultivars currently in the market, suggesting a need for increased American elderberry production and product development. Purpose: To e ...

  10. High-Efficiency Axial Flow Pump Development for Use in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems

    SBC: Multi-duti Manufacturing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will enhance economic opportunities for agricultural producers by significantly reducing operating costs at aquaculture facilities. This is especially true for rural aquaculturists who do not have the capital of an ADM-size conglomerate. The ability for American fish farmers to compete internationally improves the safety of the nations food supply by allowing FDA oversight of ...
