  1. Encapsulated Earthworm Cocoon (eggs) Viability Studies for Sustainable Soil Management

    SBC: Advanced Biotechnology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Our assertion is that intensive tillage methods have destroyed the viability of our croplands over the last one half century. In order to maintain the ability of these lands to grow crops, we have used and over-used chemical fertilizers which pose an ongoing environmental threat to our air and waterways. The benefits of conservation tillage methods are widely known, however the time to successfull ...

  2. Processing of Poultry Manure for Fuel Gas Production

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agricultural activities produce large quantities of animal wastes in the form of manures. Currently, the accumulation of manures from animal husbandry operations is a serious threat to water supplies. The technology for conversion of poultry manure into fuel gases by using heat can be integrated with internal combustion (IC) engines, microturnines, or fuel cells and have widespread agricultural us ...

  3. Performance of Innovative Native Seed Harvester

    SBC: Arbuckle Ranch, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Every year natural and man-caused disturbances (wildfire, construction of highways and facilities, mining, noxious weeds infestation, and overgrazing) damage and destroy millions of hectares of native vegetation. These vast disturbances require restoration and federal entities emphasize the use of native plant materials. Without restorative intervention, land recovery may take decades, leaving eco ...

  4. Linear Incendiary Device and Method of Prescribed Fire Ignition

    SBC: Arctos Research            Topic: N/A

    Solutions to help overcome the present limitations in conducting prescribed burning could help land managers in their efforts to accomplish needed fuels reduction in the forests. Opportunities exist for developing improvements in the methods and materials used in the ground-based ignition of prescribed fires. Improved ignition techniques could enable managers to conduct burns at times where weathe ...

  5. Encapsulated Bentonite for Abandoned Well Sealing

    SBC: BEN-CAP, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Water is the essence of life. Few will disagree that it is a resource that must be protected for the well-being of all: plant and animal. Millions of holes have been and are being drilled in the earth to search for water, uranium, oil and gas, and coal-bed methane. Many thousands of these holes are mid-depth (500-4500 feet) and fill with water if the drills penetrate one or more aquifers. When the ...

  6. Phase II: VAM-Gro: Alternative Growth Media to Promote VAM Colonization

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    VAM inoculum is commonly specified for large-scale plant production contracts throughout the United States, including revegetation efforts associated with fire rehabilitation, mine reclamation, conservation plantings, contaminated site cleanup, and other activities. These activities represent a continuous expenditure of public and private funds worth several hundred-million dollars annually. A maj ...

  7. Range Tech DSS: Decision Support System for Rangeland Health Monitoring

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current systems for acquiring and accessing rangeland health data are inadequate to meet the needs of an increasingly complex management process that requires public accountability. Traditional field-based data acquisition, such as visual assessment, quadrat, and point frame methods are highly subjective, time consuming or too costly to practically apply over large land management units. While the ...

  8. A Recycling System to Convert Urban/Suburban Waste to Livestock Feed

    SBC: GREEN-AG, LLC.            Topic: N/A

    Potentially valuable livestock feed in the form of yard waste is taking up limited and costly landfill space. This project examines the viability of using these yard waste materials as a feed source for livestock.

  9. Computer Controlled Automatic Loading Water Bucket System for Aerial Firefighting

    SBC: Hawkins and Powers Aviation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aerial firefighting is a dangerous and demanding business, which is evidenced by the numerous loss of life during the "fire season". Millions of dollars worth of equipment has been destroyed in the fight to protect people and valuable natural resources from the devastation of wildfires. Due to the recent reduction in the large fixed wing air tanker fleet there has been an increased demand placed o ...

  10. Market Development for Wood Substitute Composites Made from Agriculture Biomasses and Recycled Plastics

    SBC: Heartland BioComposites, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Rural America offers people some of the highest qualities of living, but companies are usually unwilling to locate in small towns that lack in population and pre-existing infrastructure. The problem that Heartland BioComposites will address is the needed market development for an identified rural community and surrounding area, Torrington, WY. This research project will examine the feasibility of ...
