  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Energy efficient systems for high frequency propagation of virus-free Lilium cvs

    SBC: Jersey Flora, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The production of saleable products of lily bulbs and plants normally requires a minimum of 2 years. These production systems involve growth of bulbs and plants in the field, vernalization of saleable bulbs, and planting and growing plants from the bulbs in greenhouses. The field production phase often exposes plants to virus and other disease infections as well as insect problems. Our research to ...

  7. Lily Bulbs???A Functional Food for the Prevention of Type 2 Diabetes

    SBC: Jersey Flora, Inc.            Topic: 85

    More than 20% of the American population harbor the risk factors defined for metabolic syndrome, a condition that is highly correlated with the development of type-2 diabetes and coronary heart disease. Various botanical extracts have been used in traditional medicines to treat the symptoms of diabetes, and many of these preparations contain saponins. We have isolated an extract from the bulbs of ...

  8. A Multifaceted Community Approach Preventing Child Obesity Through Standards-Based Classroom Instruction Using an Interactive Inform Tech

    SBC: INNOVATIVE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES            Topic: 85

    The extent and underlying factors leading to the rise of childhood obesity are well documented with prevalence rates derived from the NHANES (CDC) indicating a significant upward trend over the last 30 years. Between 1974 and 2004 childhood overweight rates increased from 4.0% to 18.8% in our target population - school aged children (ages 6-11 years). The 2004 survey data indicates a near doubling ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Anaerobic Production of biohydrogen from food and Agricultural waste

    SBC: HANSEN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL, LLC            Topic: 811

    Despite its clean and green nature when utilized in fuel cells and other devices, most hydrogen is currently produced primarily from non-renewable sources, such as natural gas, oil, and coal. Anaerobic digestion provides a potentially improved alternative to manufacturing hydrogen from petroleum and natural gas. Anaerobic digesters can produce hydrogen from inexpensive and renewable energy sources ...
