  5. Use of the halophyte Sarcocornia utahensis as a phytoremediation strategy for the amelioration of saline-sodic impacted soils...

    SBC: BLUE MOON BULBS LLP            Topic: N/A

    The environmental impacts of coal bed methane development (CBM) in Montana and the Rocky Mountain States are well documented. CBM exploration is expanding rapidly with the nation's focus on energy independence and the relative ease of extraction. Extraction of CBM necessitates pumping large volumes of often saline discharge waters to the surface. The impacts of those waters include: reductions in ...

  6. Ammonia Removal and Recovery System Integrated with Anaerobic Digestion for Mitigating Air and Water Quality Impacts of Animal Operations

    SBC: AEB ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: N/A

    Concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) continue to experience every increasing pressure regarding nutrient overloads and air and water environmental concerns on their farms. Additionally the producers are subject to every growing and skyrocketing fuel and fertilizer costs. This USDA SBIR Phase I project aims to demonstrate an innovative technology that recovers ammonia nitrogen from CAFO a ...

  7. SONOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS FOR RAPID DETECTION OF VARROA MITES AND OTHER PATHOLOGIES WITHOUT OPENING THE BEEHIVE

    SBC: BEE ALERT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Beekeeping is a billion dollar industry, of which honey production plays only a small part. Most beekeepers make their money with crop pollination, charging up to $120 per hive for this service. Crop growers want healthy, strong colonies. It takes a skilled beekeeper about 10 minutes to inspect a colony; the Colony Health Scanner performs the same function in about 2 minutes, and can be operated b ...

  8. Beneficiation of Chipped and Shredded Woody Biomass

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Tens of millions of tons of prunings, land clearing debris, logging slash, and urban greenwood are chipped or ground each year as a means of volume reduction and disposal. Commingled chipped whole plant materials have little value other than as compost, mulch and direct combustion energy. Capture of clean wood fiber from commingled shredded and chipped wood will increase the fiber supply to compos ...

  10. Channel Catfish Pituitary for use as a Spawning Aid in Aquaculture

    SBC: HYBRID CATFISH CO            Topic: N/A

    The channel x blue hybrid catfish has been documented as a superior animal for use by the catfish industry. To produce the hybrid a hormnone is used to help ovulate the eggs so they can be stripped from the female. Once the eggs are stripped from the female they are fertilized with sperm from the blue catfish and hatched in a manner sililar to channel catfish eggs. Carp pituitary has been used suc ...
