  1. Silver Ion Formulations for the Control of Bacterial Plant Pathogens and to Reduce Bactericide Resistance and Health Risks

    SBC: AGION TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 82

    While bacteria cause fewer plant diseases than fungi and viruses, they do cause serious economic damages to both US and worldwide agriculture. Citrus canker caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis has resulted in the destruction of over 20 million trees in Florida, while fire blight caused by Erwinia amylovora costs exceed $100 million per year in the United States alone, and recent epidemics have cost o ...

  2. Robust Airborne Wind Turbine Shroud for Production of Low Cost Renewable Energy

    SBC: Altaeros Energies, Inc.            Topic: 86

    Hundreds of existing wind power projects have transformed communities by creating jobs, improving economic development, and reducing environmental pollution. However, 85 percent of rural communities cannot utilize wind power today due to community concerns or poor wind resources at ground level that make projects uneconomical. Altaeros Energies is developing an airborne wind turbine that adapts pr ...

  3. Use of Direct Filtration on the Influent to Floating Bead Filters and Treatment of Waste Discharge with Coagulation Aids for Suspended Solid

    SBC: AQUACULTURE SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, L.L.C.            Topic: 87

    As fish species with greater sensitivity to water quality are cultured in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS), it becomes vital to improve fine solids capture. Additionally, phosphorous levels in the discharge from RAS are often high (per EPA guidelines and regulations) and can lead to eutrophication of receiving waters. This project has the potential to improve PBF performance in both respect ...

  6. Advanced Field-Deployable Monitor of Multiple Pesticides in Water

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 84

    The development of an inexpensive, field pesticide sensor would serve a large market for researchers, municipalities and regulatory agencies to minimize the risks involved in pesticide use. The long-term vision is for this technology to become a key environmental science tool to support water quality monitoring efforts. The proposed device will solve two of the most important shortcomings of prese ...

  7. Replicon Particle Vaccine for White Spot Syndrome Virus in Marine Shrimp Phase II

    SBC: HARRISVACCINES, INC.            Topic: 87

    Currently there are no truly effective interventions or therapeutic treatments for White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) in farmed shrimp. Current production practices focus on pathogen exclusion by stocking specific pathogen free (SPF) larvae, decontamination and filtration of water to prevent pathogen introduction, and strict biosecurity at hatcheries and grow out pond sites. This is extremely challe ...

  9. LOW-COST CERAMIC MEMBRANES FOR FOOD PROCESSING

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CERAMIC MEMBRANES ARE RAPIDLY EMERGING AS A NEW TECHNOLOGY IN MEMBRANE SEPARATIONS. HOWEVER, COMMERCIALLY-AVAILABLE DEVICES HAVE HIGH COSTS RELATIVE TO POLYMERIC MEMBRANES, TYPICALLY FIVE TO TEN TIMES HIGHER. THE TECHNOLOGY TO BE DEVELOPED EMPLOYS A UNIQUE APPROACH TO CERAMIC MEMBRANE MODULE DESIGN. THE MODULE CONCEPT SHOULD RESULT IN PRODUCTION OF CERAMIC MEMBRANES WITH A COST LESS THAN THOSE FOR ...
