  1. Development of a sensor for detecting Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning toxins

    SBC: SeaTox Research Inc            Topic: 842

    Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) due to consumption of contaminated shellfish is an increasing problem is the coastal waters of the United States, particularly in New England and the Pacific Ocean. The symptoms of PSP include vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath, confusion, and loss of coordination in both marine animals and humans. In severe cases, PSP toxins can cause respiratory failure a ...

  2. Tofu-tolerant mariculture: Genomics-Assisted Breeding of a High-Quality Marine Finfish for Enhanced Performance on Sustainable, Scalable Soy-based Feeds

    SBC: Kampachi Farms, LLC            Topic: 811F

    Reliance on fishmeal and fish oil is a significant constraint to aquaculture expansion in America, and globally. As U.S. marine fish farming expands, genetic improvements could increase economic performance and decrease ecological footprint. This is critically important to sustainability, scalability and profitability of the industry, and is key to attracting capital investment. Commercial opportu ...

  3. Developing A Ground Station For Airborne Wind Energy System

    SBC: EWINDSOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 812

    The tether and power generating ground station,are the focus of this proposal. Both these systems have challenges that are unique to the airborne wind energy field. First is the selection and design of the tether itself. This includes the material (e.g. nylon, steel,or composite) and whether to weave in electricity-transmitting wires between the ground station and the flying craft (which would inc ...

  4. Development of more sensitive monitoring and Attract and Kill technology for BMSB

    SBC: ALPHA SCENTS, INC.            Topic: 813

    he goal of this proposal is to develop a more effective and sensitive lure for the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) that can eventually incorporporated into an attract and kill control product. Semiochemicals, including pheromones, are commonly used to manipulate insect behaviors in IPM programs such as monitoring insect pest populations for timing of insecticide applications and control strategi ...

  5. Innovative Manufactured Aquaponic Raft for Commercial Farms

    SBC: Hawaii Fish Company            Topic: 87

    Commercial aquaponic farms are currently being established across the U.S. The global aquaponics industry was valued at $300 million in 2015 and is projected to grow at an annual rate of 30% for the next several years, passing the $1 billion mark by 2020. Forty-six percent of aquaponics farmers currently utilize deep-water raft systems and fabricate their own rafts from construction-grade polystyr ...

  6. Paper/nanotechnology-based bioanalytical system for rapid detection of pesticides in food and water

    SBC: NanoDiagnostic Technology, LLC            Topic: 85

    Food safety and water contamination that are caused by the intensive use of pesticides in agriculture remain concerns worldwide. To ensure the safety of food products and reduce health risks, pesticides are routinely monitored in food and water. However, current technologies for the detection of pesticides are generally centralized, complicated, laborious, time-consuming, and costly. There is a ne ...

  7. Enhanced Membranes for Dewatering of Black Liquor

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 81

    Compact Membrane Systems (CMS) proposes to employ membrane systems for pressure-driven separation of water from black liquor to replace the first two stages of existing multiple-effect evaporators. This is a promising approach to considerably reduce the steam energy required for concentration. Membrane materials must withstand high temperature, high salinity and high pH conditions. Fouling of the ...

  8. Enhanced Membranes For Sweetening Of Manure Based Biogas

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    Each year over 1 billion tons of animal manure is produced in US and it can be a pollution source if not handled properly. "Anaerobic digestion" is an energy efficient way to dispose manure. Through this process manure is converted to biogas and digestate. The manure digestate can be used as fertilizer. Biogas is a mixture of ~60% CH4, ~40% CO2 and trace amounts of contaminant gasses such as H2S. ...

  9. Commercialized Supercooling Technology for Subzero Nonfreezing Preservation of Fresh Foods

    SBC: JUN INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 85

    Jun Innovations has developed a proprietary supercooling technology that preserves perishable materials at below-freezing temperatures without the formation of ice crystals. Foods are maintained in their natural state for weeks with the same taste, texture, nutrition, and moisture content they had before being supercooled. This technology offers a radically new food preservation method for consume ...

  10. Camera-based Examination of Risk via Behavioral Evaluation with Remote Underwater Surveillance

    SBC: Forever Oceans Corporation            Topic: 841

    Commercial marine aquaculture operators face many operational hazards including disease, predators, husbandry operations, and environmental changes. Most of theses risks are only identified with constant surveillance and physical presence at a farm site. However, human observation of risk factors is expensive, slow, and sometimes ineffective. Sensors are available to monitor individual environment ...
