  1. Formulation of Biodegradable Nursery Pots from Poultry Feather Keratin Cronus, LLC

    SBC: CRONUS, LLC            Topic: 89

    The U.S. poultry industry produces two billion pounds of feathers each year, which are considered waste biomaterials and currently converted into low value protein for use in animal feed. In Europe, feathers are autoclaved or burned and then buried as a waste material due to regulations prohibiting animal by-products in feed. A more appropriate use for feathers is to utilize their unique structura ...

  2. Development of a Nest Attractant for the Blue Orchard Bee

    SBC: AGPOLLEN, LLC            Topic: 82

    Modern agriculture has relied almost exclusively on the honey bee for managed pollination services. Honey beekeepers currently face numerous problems including Varroa mites, American foulbrood, Africanized bees and most recently colony collapse disorder. These problems have led to a shorter supply of colonies and consequently higher rental prices in the United States. It is sensible to have more t ...

  3. Agaricus mushroom production utilizing local substrate materials

    SBC: OCR INC            Topic: 812

    Hawaii has year-round growing conditions and abundant agricultural land, yet it still imports more than 85% of its food. More than 2.3 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms, a mushroom family that includes Portobello and Crimini, were imported each year in 2006 and 2007. Currently, these mushrooms are not produced in Hawaii. Increasing the production of locally grown food products would not only re ...

  5. Early Childhood Oral Health Initiative for Rural Families

    SBC: LYNN B WILSON            Topic: 86

    Early childhood dental caries represents the most common, and possibly the most commonly overlooked, chronic childhood disease in the United States. National health leaders recognize that families with young children living in rural communities face significantly more barriers to sustaining positive oral health than the general population. Low-income families in rural communities experience even g ...

  6. FPGA-Based End-Station Security for High-Performance Networking

    SBC: Acadia Optronics, Llc            Topic: 52b

    Traditional enterprise cyber-security methods are inadequate to address the increasing number of threats, particularly within larger and higher-performance networks. Several government and third party organizations report consistent failures within corporate and federal, state, and local government networks. A key point of failure in securing these networks is the centralized security architectu ...

  10. Development of a 2 MW CW Waterload for Electron Cyclotron Heating Systems

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 56b

    Gyrotrons are being developed for ITER and other fusion systems that produce 2 MW CW of RF power for electron cyclotron heating. Currently there are no waterloads available to test gyrotrons at this power level. The U.S. also is responsible for providing 1.5 MW loads and 2.0 MW loads for ITER. Calabazas Creek Research, Inc. developed prelimnary designs in Phase I that efficiently distrib
