  1. Intermodal Shipping Containers for Live Aquatic Product

    SBC: Allied Engineering Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research is to evaluate the feasibility of a volume transport and holding container for live fish and aquatic product. The proposed container would aerate, cool and circulate water using liquid air and no external power supply. The technology would allow a cost effective means to maintain a hibernation-like torpor in fish to overcome physiological constraints of volume live transport ...

  2. Novel Cost-effective Production of High Quality Papers

    SBC: BIOPULPING INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Mechanical pulping accounts for about 25% of the wood pulp production in the world today. This volume is expected to increase in the future. Mechanical pulping, with its high yield, is viewed as a way to extend these resources. However, mechanical pulping is electrical energy-intensive (a mill processing 300 tons of pulp/day spends about $10 million in electricity cost) and yields paper with less ...

  3. Alternative Container Design for Large Acreage Revegetataion

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Revegetation of arid lands disturbed by fire, or by cropping, mining, and other activities, represent a continuous and substantial expenditure by the responsible entities. In 1999, the U.S. Department of Agriculture expenditures for the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) in Washington were several million dollars. Likewise, fire rehabilitation work accounts for several million dollars annually. Th ...

  4. Rapid Sensing and Classification of Blueberry Maturity

    SBC: Digital Designs and Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    More than 200 million pounds of blueberries are sorted annually based upon visual observation by men and women on inspection lines or with equipment that observes blueberry color. As domestic hand labor becomes more expensive, the industry continues to move towards mechanized sorting processes using less than adequate sorting technologies. We propose a novel, commercially viable, low-cost classifi ...

  5. EBFB Technique for Elimination of Foodborne Pathogens in Sprout Seeds

    SBC: Electron Processing Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The presence of human pathogens in uncooked sprouts has required health advisories by government agencies. Various chemical and physical processes for seed decontamination are under evaluation. The electron beam fluidized bed process developed by EPS under USDA grants has been shown to be an effective biocidal agent and is well suited to the disinfection of sprout seeds. Any commercially useful pr ...

  6. Achieving Quantum Improvements in the Economics of Morone Breeding and Production

    SBC: Fins Technology, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project will enhance the competitiveness of the U.S. aquaculture industry by providing a cost- effective means of increasing the rate of genetic improvement of hybrid striped bass. We will compare the reproductive, hatchery and grow-out performance of selectively bred hybrid striped bass and backcross hybrid striped bass of common genetic origin. We will also benchmark our findings via compar ...

  7. Improving Systems for Transport, Distribution and Marketing of Live Aquatics

    SBC: Fins Technology, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project will improve the market value of U.S. aquaculture products through the development of an improved system for transporting, holding and distributing live finfish. In Phase I, we will develop a new anesthetic Aqui-S that holds tremendous promise for mitigating handling stress. We will also develop and evaluate key components of a low-cost, modular transport system that promises to signi ...

  8. Improving Striped Bass and Hybrid Striped Bass Farming via Selective Breeding

    SBC: Fins Technology, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project will enhance the competitiveness of the U.S. aquaculture industry by bringing to fruition seven years of prior work that has resulted in the creation of a genetically diverse founder populations of F1 through F3 performance striped bass, improved reproductive techniques and a comprehensive set of microsattellite DNA markers. We will accelerate the commercial application of our work by ...

  10. A Tool to Enhance Efficiency and Productivity During Fire Mop-up Operations

    SBC: HEALTHCARE TECHNOLOGY SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will design and build prototype hand-held tools intended to assist fire fighters during wildfire mop-up operations. The tools will incorporate operator adjustable heat gradient thresholds for processing sensor information permitting identification of burning debris that may be underground or buried by layers of ash. Telescopic poles will permit tool use while standing and is ...
