  1. Natural Adjuvants to enhance Efficacy of Viral Vaccines for Mariculture

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 812

    Viral diseases are a major impediment to the development and expansion of environmentally safe and sustainable aquaculture systems (NMFS 2007). Despite control measures, pathogenic viruses kill millions of fish and shellfish every year (ICES Mariculture Committee 2004). To date, vaccines against fish viruses have generally provided extremely poor protection or are too expensive (e.g. DNA ...

  2. Development of an Extended Range, high Precision 3-D Acoustic Tag Underwater Positioning System for Monitoring Animals in the Marine Environment

    SBC: Hydroacoustic Technology, Inc.            Topic: 816

    Ecosystem-based marine research would benefit from an improved ability to investigate the ecology of marine animal populations on both large and small spatial scales. Acoustic tag monitoring systems are a preferred technology for monitoring animal movement and behavior in the marine environment. However, the marine acoustic tagging systems currently available generally lack precise posit ...

  3. Innovative Track Gage Measurement System

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: 101FR6

      This proposal presents two innovative non-contact track gage measurement techniques, microwave and ultrasound.  Both methods will be investigated and tested under harsh experimental setup conditions simulating outdoor train track.  Based on the initial test results, the more promising of the proposed two techniques will be further developed into a system with optimized measurement ...

  4. Enhancing Biosynthesis of Biofuels from Cellulosic Biomass (Topic 8.8)

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    This program will provide low cost routes for biosynthesis of these and many other organics. Using biomass for production of fuels and chemical provides for a domestic, renewable and green route to address our fuel and chemical needs. This program provides a simple and inexpensive route for generating these domestic and renewable products

  5. Upgrading Struvite Recovered from Dairy Waste into Marketable Fertilizer and Feed Products

    SBC: Multiform Harvest Inc            Topic: 811

    This project develops a commercial process for modifying phosphorus recovered from dairy manure and other waste streams into marketable feed and fertilizer products. Phosphorus release from dairies and other concentrated feeding operations is a growing environmental problem. Meanwhile, domestic supplies of mined phosphorus are rapidly depleting, confronting U.S. agriculture with serious cost impac ...

  6. Micro-encapsulation and Nanotechnology Treatments to Prevent Proteolytic Diseases of Aquatic Animals

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 87

    Although aquaculture is the world's fastest-growing animal food production system, diseases remain a major impediment to the development and expansion of environmentally safe and sustainable aquaculture in the United States. Pathogenic fungal and bacterial infections of eggs, skin, and gills continue to kill millions of fish every year. At this time, there are no vaccines available to prevent fung ...

  7. Production of Methyl-Ethyl-Ketone (MEK) from Renewable Feedstock

    SBC: ARZEDA Corp.            Topic: 88

    American energy and chemical industries are currently almost entirely dependent on oil (most of the it from foreign origin). In particular, the chemical industry has been optimizing, for at least 6 decades, most of its processes to be able to produce all the widely used chemicals (fuels,solvents,plastics) from petroleum. Growing environmental as well as geopolitical concerns demand alternatives to ...

  8. Ammonia Recovery and Biomethane Production from Concentrated Manure


    Anaerobic digestion (AD) of animal manure offers the potential of offsetting the declining natural gas fossil fuel reserves with renewable energy while abating odor and methane greenhouse gas emissions. However, two significant problems must be resolved prior to achieving that potential. Those problems are: 1) the poor economics associated with anaerobic digestion and 2) the release of toxic, gree ...

  9. Increasing Efficiency of a Crossbreeding Program for the Pacific Oyster

    SBC: Taylor Shellfish Company, Inc.            Topic: 87

    Shellfish aquaculture occurs in coastal regions, where it is constrained by competition for alternative uses and by onset of the rapid environmental changes expected from global climate change. Commercial breeding programs can improve the yield of Pacific oysters, especially in regions, such as the U.S. West Coast, where farmers depend on seed produced in hatcheries. The Pacific oyster Crassostrea ...

  10. Anaerobically Digested Manure Fiber for Environmental Cleanup and Remediation

    SBC: ORGANIX, INC.            Topic: 811

    This project addresses two issues important to agricultural producers. First, the high cost of implementing manure management strategies, such as installing and operating anaerobic digesters and therefore the need to optimize return on investment by developing value-added products from the residuals. Second is that biomass (particularly large quantities of agricultural residue like wheat straw, pe ...
