  1. Creating Resilient Structures with Polymer Coatings

    SBC: Optechnology, Inc.            Topic: 819S

      The first goal of our team is to design and develop highly ductile cement mortar composites using novel patent applied for technology which has been shown to produce materials with high energy absorption, decreased modulus, higher tensile strength, and greater toughness than standard or ultra high performance concretes or fibercements. These materials will be used to produce NEMA Class ...

  2. Cost Competitive Wave Energy Without Moving Parts

    SBC: HiFunda LLC            Topic: 815

    Conventional approaches to ocean energy are unlikely to make a material impact on global energy supply. HiFunda LLC and its affiliate Oscilla Power, Inc. are developing a utility-scale wave energy harvester enabled by low cost, domestically-and readily-available magnetostrictive alloys that requires no moving parts. This device has the potential to deliver baseload power to coastal utili ...

  3. Development of an integrated actuator for real time control of spray nozzle flow rate and droplet size spectrum

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Application of agrochemicals is essential to U.S. production of food, fiber, biofuels and ornamentals. However, it can also create environmental contamination if pesticides reach non-target areas through airborne displacement of spray, i.e., "spray drift". Drift is a concern for agriculture, especially for specialty crops grown in sensitive areas. Spray drift mitigation, through use of larger drop ...

  4. Next Generation Energy Efficient Supplemental Lighting for Plant Production

    SBC: CYCLOPTICS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 813

    Greenhouse farming is an absolute necessity to revive and create local agriculture industries in northern climatically challenged regions with short growing seasons. Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) has made significant strides in greenhouse farming technology. State of the art CEA farming utilizes direct control of lighting, temperature and CO2 in a hydroponics environment. Key advantages ...

  5. In-Field Soil Phosphorus Measurement System

    SBC: VERIS TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 84

    Crop growers in the United States, and in developed countries worldwide, apply large amounts of phosphate fertilizers to their fields. In the US for example, growers annually apply over 4,000,000 tons of phosphate fertilizer. Fertilizer rates are typically applied in excess of the crop need, since the cost of fertilizer is low relative to the loss in crop yield if a given nutrient is yield-limitin ...

  6. Automated, in-field measurement system for soil nitrate and other properties

    SBC: VERIS TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 84

    Nitrogen affects proteins, enzymes and metabolic processes and is essential for crop growth. While annual usage varies based on world economic conditions, approximately 80,000,000 metric tons of fertilizer N are applied annually in the world, of which more than 10,000,000 tons are applied annually in the United States. If crops don?t have an adequate supply of nitrogen, significant yield losses ca ...

  7. Improving the stability and concentration of Megasphaera elsdenii NCIMB 41125

    SBC: MEGASTARTER, LLC            Topic: 83

    Acidosis in ruminant animals (beef cattle, dairy cows, and sheep)is a metabolic condition that causes problems for animals fed high-grain diets. Orally dosing animals with a strain of bacteria, Megasphaera elsdenii, has been shown to be beneficial in alleviating or decreasing this metabolic problem. This bacteria is very sensitive to environments containing oxygen and to date has a fairly short sh ...

  8. Rural Wastewater Treatment Lagoon Enhancement with Dome Shaped Submerged Bio-film Devices

    SBC: Wastewater Compliance Systems, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Shallow lagoon systems are the most common form of engineered domestic wastewater treatment in the United States and the world. Municipalities, particularly smaller rural communities, use this low cost treatment method. These lagoon systems are generally effective at reducing biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) to acceptable levels prior to discharge. They are generally ineffective at nutrient removal ...

  9. Innovative Small Vertical Axis Wind Turbine Uses Lift to Generate Power Providing A Lighter Weight, Less Costly, Rural Wind Power Solution

    SBC: WIND LIFT TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 86

    Rural farming communities, rural homeowners, the farmers, the small business/industries, the schools, and the municipalities need quality alternative energy solution to help offset all or a portion of their electrical power usage. In many instances the high cost of energy prohibits economic recovery. Wind energy has been identified as one of the important sources of renewable energy. Large Horizon ...

  10. Pelleted sericea lespedeza diet for control of internal parasites and pathogens in goats and sheep

    SBC: SIMS BROTHERS INCORPORATED            Topic: 83

    Internal parasites are the greatest health and production challenge for sheep and goats in southeastern states and others during warm, humid conditions (including Northeastern, Midwestern and irrigated pastures in Western US). Haemonchus contortus or barber pole worm thrives in warm, humid climates and is a voracious blood feeder that can cause anemia and death to the animal if left untreated. Dew ...
