  2. InfinitPipe: An Economically Sustainable Pipe for Agricultural Use

    SBC: Quakewrap, Inc.            Topic: 84

    For centuries, pipes have been manufactured in short (20-30 ft long) segments and trucked to the jobsite where they are assembled to create a long pipeline. This technique is inefficient as the pipes tend to leak at the joints and there is significant cost associated with delivering voluminous pipe segments. Furthermore, pipes made with steel or concrete corrode and have a short service life.The g ...

  3. Testing feasibility and scalability of a new engineered design of an aerated static pile composting system.

    SBC: Compost Plant, L3C, The            Topic: 86

    Food waste is a significant and complex problem for the United States. Americans generate over 250 million (short) tons of trash a year, and organic materials such as paper and paperboard, yard trimmings, and food waste continue to make up a large component of the waste stream. These organic materials collectively account for a significant portion of U.S. methane emissions, as organic waste produc ...

  4. Autonomous Aerial Survey of Wildfire Burn Areas to Aid Post-Fire Damage Assessments of Soil Resources and Mitigation Efforts for Watershed Recovery

    SBC: Latitude Engineering, LLC            Topic: 81

    for clearing out accumulations of small timber and ground vegetation. However, generations of controversial forest land management practices coupled with global warming trends have yielded wildfires that burn hotter and longer. This beyond ordinary level of devastation can have long lasting effects on the health of soil and watershed resources. The ability to ameliorate these impacts has direct ec ...

  5. Development of an automated wastewater holding pond monitoring system for early detection of unintended sub-surface discharge.

    SBC: AgraTek, LLC            Topic: 84

    The goal of this project is to develop a stand-alone Automated Groundwater Contamination Monitor capable of collecting daily measures of soil and groundwater quality near the perimeter of earthen ponds used to store animal and industrial wastewater. Monitoring wells, mandated by most regulatory agencies, have been shown to be incapable of such rapid and reliable detection and do not offer producer ...

  6. Sustainable Indoor Growing System (SIGS) for the production of grafted vegetable plants prototype

    SBC: Grafted Growers, LLC.            Topic: 813

    The problem: Currently in the US, there is not an affordable way to fulfill the need of high quality grafted vegetable transplants for field growers and hydroponic greenhouse growers. The key issues that intensify the problem are: 1) the large number of seedlings needed in a single batch (US large farming operations), 2) the current high price of grafted plants and 3) the proximity of seedling sup ...

  7. Development of Non-Toxic BPA-Free Phytochemical Resins for Coating & Packaging Applications

    SBC: VENTANA RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 88

    A burgeoning need exists for less toxic plastic packaging resins in society today. Current concerns about chronic human exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) epoxy resins commonly employed as corrosion resistant liners within canned food container interiors has driven the need to explore alternative, less toxic polymer barrier can liner materials. This effort will focus upon evaluating novel alternative l ...

  8. Improved Soybean Feed for Use in Aquaculture

    SBC: Arcadia Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Soybean meal has long been a critical input for animal feed in monogastric animals (such as chickens and pigs) as it provides an ideal protein profile to promote healthy, rapid animal growth at a competitive price. More recently, aquaculture, the fastest growing commercial animal protein segment, has sought to take advantage of the protein and cost advantages of soybean meal as an affordable prote ...

  9. Sustainable Indoor growing System (SIGS) for the production of grafted vegetable plants

    SBC: Grafted Growers, LLC.            Topic: 813

    Current Problem & Importance of Solution Vegetable field growers are constantly faced with soil borne disease pressure that significantly reduces crop yields and profitability, limits the amount of quality vegetables in the stores, and increases the price of fresh produce. To solve the problem large vegetable growers treated their fields with an ozone depleting fumigant, methylbromide, which c ...

  10. Development of IMNV Resistant Heritable Transgenic Litopenaeus vannamei

    SBC: TRANSGENADA ENTERPRISES, INC            Topic: 87

    Aquaculture stands as a potential solution for the long-term production of animal protein worldwide and is reported to achieve some of the highest feed-to-protein conversion ratios when compared to poultry, cattle, and pig farming. The shrimp aquaculture specifically, suffers from periodic and devastating disease outbreaks that continually limit crop yields. This effect stifles the development and ...
