  1. Spawning and Hatchery Technology to Improve Hybrid Catfish Production

    SBC: Alabama Catfish Inc. d/b/a Harvest Select Farm            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Catfish imports are coming from third world nations capable of producing catfish and selling lower prices than American counterparts. Therefore, methods that improve efficiency and reduce the cost of producing catfish would be a tremendous asset to the industry. The hybrid catfish between channel catfish female and blue catfish males has been shown to have many superior char ...

  3. Reproductive Confinement of Channel Catfish with Transgenic Sterilization

    SBC: Aqua Bounty Technologies            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Transgenic, domestic, interspecific hybrid and exotic fish all have great potential for benefiting both aquaculture and recreational fishing. Many of these fish, especially transgenics, are not used because of ecological concerns. The ultimate solution to these biodiversity, genetic biodiversity and environmental risk issues for application of these fish is transgenic steril ...

  4. Improving Single Pass Solids Removal in Bead Bioclarifiers by Optimizing Media Size and Shape

    SBC: AQUACULTURE SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: There is an immediate demand for floating bead filters with improved single pass removal characteristics for wastewater treatment. AST has identified several potential areas of bead filter application that are inhibited by poor single pass removal of fine particles. These potential areas of application include treatment aquaculture backwash waters and effluents, aquacultural ...

  5. Abrasion-Resistant Inorganic Membranes for Sugar Processing

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The sugar industry produces over 100 million tons of sugar each year. This large industry has been intrigued by the use of membranes to enhance the efficiency of production for many decades but membranes that have the correct combination of performance and cost have not yet been developed for consideration in large scale installations. High temperature, high viscosity, and m ...

  6. Development of a Sequencing Batch Biofilm Reactor for Treatment of Pesticide Rinsewater

    SBC: Aronora, Inc            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Pesticide formulation and agricultural-chemical facilities generate a dilute troublesome pesticide rinsewater that is difficult to dispose of due to its low volume, highly variable flow and the presence of a mixture of pesticides, solvents and emulsifiers. The sequencing batch biofilm reactor (SBBR) is expected to be a low-cost treatment technology for pesticide rinsewater. ...

  7. Low-Cost Electrochemical Ethylene Sensor for Agricultural Applications

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Ethylene (ethene) is a plant hormone that is active at very low concentrations in the developmental and reproductive processes of plants. Ethylene plays a crucial role in the complex processes of ripening and senescence of fruit, vegetable and floral crops, making this unique sensor a valuable tool for U.S. agriculture. The anticipated result of the Phase I and Phase II prog ...

  8. Designing a Natural Soy Processing System that Delivers Nutritious Texturized Soy Protein

    SBC: SCHILLINGER SEED INC            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Since the Food and Drug Administration announced in 1999 that foods containing soy protein may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, commercial food companies have been looking for soy foods to meet customer demand for more healthful, convenient food. Development of appealing meat alternative products has been limited by existing equipment used to produce texturized soy ...

  9. Deployment of Fuel Cell and Electrolyzer Energy Storage Systems in Rural Areas

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The continuing development of fuel cells and electrolyzers has advanced the technology for use in a range of applications from aerospace and military to residential and vehicle systems. The technical viability of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells and electrolyzers has been clearly demonstrated in these applications, however, the economic viability remains far away ex ...

  10. Development of High Through-Put Total Antioxidant Assays for Dietary Antioxidants

    SBC: Medical Products Mfg, LLC dba Brunswick Laboratories            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Overwhelming scientific evidence suggests that dietary antioxidants scavenge the reactive oxygen/nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) which are known to be involved in the pathogenesis of aging and many common diseases. As considerable scientific and public interest has been directed toward antioxidants and, as more food companies are entering this market, the lack of validated high t ...
