  1. Bee-friendly dust-free seed coating for pollinator health

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Pollinators, typically honey bees, are critical for marketable yields of around 90 crops, including apples, blueberries, cucumbers and almonds. Honey bees, however, have been under considerable pressure from Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), leading to unprecedented and unsustainable colony losses. Pesticide exposure, especially neonicotinoids in seed coating, is one key stressor causing the general ...

  2. Optimized shellfish aquaculture production barge

    SBC: Ward Aquafarms LLC            Topic: 87

    Shellfish aquaculture in the United States has been expanding rapidly; providing jobs, promoting local economies, and yielding sustainable protein sources for a continuously growing human population. However, industry growth is restricted due to several issues which all directly relate to being able to get the food (microalgae) to the shellfish in an efficient manner. The issue is not that there i ...

  6. An eddy covariance system for simultaneous flux measurements of total reactive nitrogen, ammonia, and nitrogen oxides (NOx)

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Nitrogen balance plays a critical role in agricultural food security and biodiversity. While some nitrogen addition, such as fertilization, is highly beneficial to agriculture, too much can result in lower crop yields and plant loss. Air pollution can tip the nitrogen balance toward unhealthy soil and poor growing conditions, and affect a plant's ability to cope with drought. Understanding the ...

  7. Pulsed Electric Field Application to Aquaculture: Predator Control and Product Extraction

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 87

    This Phase II SBIR focuses on the application of Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) processing to the growth and extraction of microalgae and algal products. PEF processing uses short, high voltage electrical pulses to break cellular membranes (also referred to as electroporation or cell lysing). PEF has been applied across a range of applications, from non-thermal pasteurization of juices to wastewater ...
