  1. An Integrated BioGas-Solar Dehydration System: Increasing Sustainability through Value-Added Agriculture

    SBC: OMNIGREEN RENEWABLES            Topic: 86

    Mandates for biofuels have resulted in the significant increase of biodiesel production in rural communities. Hawaii's Jatropha biodiesel production will produce nearly 650-700 kg of residues, consisting of Jatropha seedcake and fruit hulls for every metric ton of seeds harvested for oil production. In addition, the biodiesel conversion process will produce another 30-50 kg of crude glycerin, ...

  2. Optical Fiber Sensor for Plant Nutrients

    SBC: SCIENCE AND SENSORS TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 813

    The problem: Nutrient concentration has a direct effect on the yield and quality of plants. However, despite their importance, they are frequently over applied and, if their concentration is thought to be incorrect, they are discarded into the environment and replaced with a new solution. This leads to nutrient waste and widespread environmental contamination of aquatic, ground and drinking water ...

  3. Accurate Huanglongbing (HLB) Diagnosis

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Citrus canker, caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri, a bacteria associated with citrus leafminer (CLM), Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) damage, and Huanglongbing (HLB) . Successful completion of this project will provide citrus growers with a valuable tool for managing these two terrifying diseases, and enhance the diagnosis of diseased trees, even in the beginn ...

  4. SPLAT BASE: A Revolutionary Attract And Kill Technology To Effectively Manage Orchard Pests.

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Our Phase I research and development in laboratory bioassays, wind tunnel, caged trees, and small field trials, indicates that different approaches are needed to maximize contact of the moth with the source containing the insecticide. We found that optimizing an attract and kill formulation that actually attracts and kills the males, instead of disrupting their orientation, is a fine balancing act ...

  5. Compostable Packaging from Agricultural Residues

    SBC: WORLD CENTRIC            Topic: 88

    $14.8 billion of foodservice disposables and packaging (plates, utensils, take out containers, meat trays, bowls etc.) are purchased each year in USA (Freedonia 2009). They are mostly made from Styrofoam/plastics and cause pollution and toxicity in production, usage and disposal. Cities and consumers are looking to increase landfill diversion rates and reduce pollution. Compostable products are st ...

  6. Venting of Underground Storage Tanks Containing Ethanol-Gasoline Blends

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    Vapors produced during the process of refueling cars are a significant source of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) emissions. Uncontrolled emissions cause economic losses and pollute the environment. This problem is exacerbated when the gasoline contains bioethanol because its presence increases the vapor pressure and volatility of the fuel. These increased fuel emissions from ethanol-gasoline ble ...

  7. Aina Mo Soil Amendment Project: Organic compound from biodiesel glycerin co-product to control apple snail (P. canaliculata) on wetland taro

    SBC: PACIFIC BIODIESEL, INC.            Topic: 812

    Apple snail, (Pomacea canaliculata), a highly invasive pest affecting wetland crops in 18 countries including the U.S., is listed as one of the 100 Worst Global Invaders. One study showed that due to its voracious appetite, present value damage from the snail could cost Philippine rice production as much as 2.3 billion dollars annually. In Hawai`i, the apple snail invasion has reduced taro harvest ...

  8. Novel approach to NOx reduction in biogas engine exhaust from anaerobic digestion facilities at dairy farms.

    SBC: BIOGAS & ELECTRIC, LLC            Topic: 811

    Biogas & Electric LLC proposes a novel low cost approach to NOx and SO2 removal through a combination of extended absorption and selective non-catalytic reduction. If efficacy in the proposed NOx removal process can be shown, the new method will be adopted by all proposed manure based anaerobic digestion projects in California, and shortly thereafter adopted by many other manure based anaerobi ...

  9. Solvent Recovery from Vegetable Oil Miscella by Novel Solvent-Resistant Nanofiltration Membranes

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 85

    Soybean is the major source for production of edible oils worldwide and in United States. Pressing of the soybean into flakes followed by the solvent extraction with hexane (solvent) is most widely practiced for extraction of oil. Separation of solvent from oil-solvent mixture for solvent recovery and reuse is usually carried out by solvent evaporation. Evaporation (or distillation) demands consid ...

  10. Development of a Robust Sensory Feedback System for Persons with Lower-Limb Sensory Deficits

    SBC: FARUS, LLC            Topic: 84133S2

    This project develops a system to provide auxiliary sensory feedback in the lower limbs of amputees and enhance sensory function for individuals with disabilities through functional capacity and thereby improve their mobility and quality of life. The Farus sensory feedback system detects force loads at the base of the foot or prosthesis and translates this force, via pneumatic control system, to p ...
