  1. 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 ...

  2. Improved Grading of Round Timbers and Optimized Round Timber Truss Designs

    SBC: Whole Trees, LLC            Topic: 81

    Former USDA secretary, Tom Vilsack, has urged the Forest Service to "develop new markets" for forest by-products that encourage healthy timber management WholeTrees® Architecture and Structures, LLC (WT) creates value from an abundant, near-waste byproduct of well-managed forests: small-diameter round timber (SDRT). WT uses debarked, un-milled whole timbers and proprietary steel connections as a ...

  3. Optimizing the agricultural value of brushite upcycled from urban wastewater: a slow-release P fertilizer and high-grade phosphate ore.

    SBC: Nutrient Recovery And Upcycling Llc            Topic: 84

    Phosphorus which is a limited resource and an essential plant nutrient is commonly applied to agricultural land to promote plant growth. NRU is commercializing a technology to recover phosphorus from municipal wastewater in the form of an agriculturally valuable mineral called brushite. This technology addresses the need to recycle phosphorus from the waste stream in order to prevent technical pro ...

  4. The Marine Debris and Small Object Mapping (DSOM) Radar System)

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 824D

    The DSOM system realized in a Phase II effort will provide a modular, compact and reconfigurable system with the ability to provide unique and new information about the scene of interest (e.g. temporal and height information) when compared with traditional SAR sensors. When compared with other imaging technologies, DSOM has the important advantages of being operable through cloud cover and at nigh ...

  5. Engineering Structures for Offshore Macroalgae Farmingar System)

    SBC: CA Goudey & Associates            Topic: 812F

    This project continues our development of innovative systems for farming macroalgae on the high seas. We will identify suitable sites in Nantucket Sound to demonstrate our system and determine the associated environmental parameters including depths, currents, and waves. By combining that information with load and acceleration data from our Phase I wave-basin tests, we will refine the structural d ...

  6. Fish Trap Extension Kit for Lionfish Control

    SBC: R3 Digital Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 822N

    R3 Digital Sciences (R3-DS) will develop and commercialize the Fish Trap Extension Kit (FTEK), and electromechanical device that will extend the capabilities of existing fish traps, and convert them from indiscriminate traps into “smart traps” capable of targeting specific fish types. To eliminate lionfish bycatch, the FTEK will enable existing commercial spiny lobster traps to autonomously de ...

  7. Carbon Nanotube Array-based Nanosensor for Autonomous and Direct Measurement of Carbonate

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 825R

    This program is aimed at the development of a deployable sensor for direct measurement of carbonate ions in saline waters with a sensitivity of 5 μM. The sensor combines the selectivity of carbonate ionophore with the unique structure of a carbon nanotube array to achieve a large dynamic range, high specificity and sensitivity. Phase I was focused on demonstrating the proof-of-principle concept f ...

  8. Energy-Positive Wastewater Treatment and Reuse System For Agriculture Applications

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: 84

    The use of recycled water has never been more important than it is today, especially with California and the Western United States experiencing the worst drought in 500 years.To address the severe and persistent shortage of water,growers in California are increasingly looking to recycled water as a way to consistently meet their irrigation demands. The main challenge for water reuse in agriculture ...

  9. Smart System for Poultry Welfare and Management

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: 83

    In recent years, consumer's concerns over hen well-being in conventional small wire cages (called battery cages) has resulted in some of the poultry farms to switch to cage-free housing where hens have freedom to walk around spread their wings, and lay their eggs in real nest boxes. This push towards cage-free egg production was further magnified in 2015 when many of the large fast food, resta ...

  10. 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 ...
