  6. Ultra-High Efficiency Ethylene Scrubber to Reduce Cold Storage Costs of Produce

    SBC: Sonata Scientific            Topic: 813

    The importance of improving postharvest handling can be understood in terms of the primary impact of poor postharvest care--food loss. Technologies for improving postharvest handling focus on extending the shelf life of the fruit or vegetable while maintaining or improving upon the quality of the produce. A major achievement in prolonging produce storage life has been the implementation of cold st ...

  7. Producing Shrimp In A Modified Partitioned Aquaculture System Using On-Shore Tanks And Earthen Ponds

    SBC: Greene Prairie Aquafarm, L.L.C.            Topic: 87

    The U.S. is the largest importer of shrimp in the world, and in order to compete with foreign imports, production efficiencies need to be drastically improved. A principle problem that affects profitability, and ultimately, sustainability of inland shrimp farming in Alabama and other regions is highly unpredictable survival. Survival can be affected by stock-out success of post larval shrimp or by ...
