  3. Identifying genetic markers of resistance to POMS (Pacific oyster mortality syndrome)

    SBC: Pacific Hybreed, Inc.            Topic: 9103

    Pacific oyster mortality syndrome (POMS), which is caused by the virus OsHV-1, has devastated oyster farming globally and threatens the $225 million shellfish aquaculture industry on the U.S. West Coast. Lacking typical treatment or control measures, POMS progresses rapidly, causing up to 100% losses; once detected in a growing area, the virus remains and spreads. On the other hand, breeding for P ...

  4. Real Time Particle Size and Settling Velocity for In-Situ Monitoring of Deep-Sea Polymetallic Nodule Mining

    SBC: SEQUOIA SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: G

    In the coming decade, it is anticipated that deep-sea mining activities will commence throughout the deep ocean, at depths around 4000-6000m. At these depths, vast resources of minerals such as cobalt, copper and nickel, which are needed to produce batteries for electric vehicles for example, are present in the form of baseball-sized rocks called polymetallic nodules lying on the seabed. Collector ...

  6. Transformation of carbon emissions to high-value products through a two-step electrochemical platform

    SBC: LECTROLYST LLC            Topic: G

    Carbon dioxide utilization can help reduce carbon emissions, but gaps remain in the value chain from initial capture to high-value products. Lectrolyst LLC will develop an electrochemical platform centered on selective two-step conversion of CO2 to acetic acid and ethylene, to fill this need. Preliminary life cycle assessment and techno-economic analyses indicate ~200 million metric tons of CO2 em ...

  10. A Blubber or Dorsal Fin Piercing Tag Attachment System for Remotely-Deployed Cetacean Tags

    SBC: American Benchmark Machine Works            Topic: 824

    Animal-borne electronic instruments (tags) are critical tools for monitoring the behavior and ecology of cetaceans, providing data needed for managing their populations and mitigating the threats they face. Although remote-deployment of tags onto cetaceans that cannot be captured has provided valuable data, attachment durations have been frustratingly short and variable. Our Phase II goal is to de ...
