  4. Enhanced Control of Fruit Ripening

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Ethylene is a growth hormone for fruits and vegetables that is generated by the plants themselves; that is, it acts as a self-ripening agent. Hence, the removal of ethylene gas can play a central role in maintaining the freshness of these products. Whereas the temperature and the levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide gases are also important system variables that demand a significant economic invest ...

  7. The Use of Reproductive Technology to Improve Flounder Growth

    SBC: GREATBAY AQUACULTURE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Summer flounder (Paralichthys dentatus) are a valuable commercial and recreational species with a natural range from the southern Gulf of Maine to South Carolina. Landings of Atlantic flounders decreased from 90,000 mt in 1984 to 25,000 mt in 1994. Total annual landings of summer flounder peaked at 39.9 million pounds in 1979, but recently from 1990-2003 landings have been much lower, fluctuating ...

  10. Development of a process methodology to determine the cost of ownership of instructional resources in relation to the benefits of improved student performance

    SBC: Progress Education Inc            Topic: N/A

    School reform efforts call for using scientific approaches to making decisions in education. Currently, data are available to inform decisions, but many educators are not well equipped to understand quantitative information, how to use it, and how to communicate quantitative results. During Phase I, we will conduct focus groups and surveys, and train educators to use data to help students succeed. ...
