  1. Microbial Enhancement of Flax to Replace Fishmeal and Oil in Salmonid Diets

    SBC: MONTANA MICROBIAL PRODUCTS, LLC            Topic: 8110

    Flax containing omega 3 fatty acids and relatively high protein content offers advantages as a potential source of plant protein and oil to replace fishmeal and oil in aquaculture feeds; reducing both pressure on marine fisheries and the principal source of contaminants in farmed fish. MMP ahs used innovative fungal culture technology in separate processes to develop low cost, multi activity cell ...

  2. Metabolic and Physiological Response to Sablefish (Anaplopoma fimbria) to Variable Environmental Conditions

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 815

    Sablefish (black cod) is a promising species for marine aquaculture in Washington State because of strong demand, high prices, ease of culture from juvenile stage on, availability of large areas for commercial grow out and interest from commercial, tribal and fisheries cooperatives. But the physiological ecology of sablefish is only partially known, which hampers commercialization and the ability ...

  3. Improved Anaerobic Digestion of Dairy Manure for Energy and High-Value Co-Products

    SBC: Andgar Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Dairy manure generated on concentrated animal feeding operations is of particular environmental concern due to potentially harmful effects long term storage and land application have on air, water, and soil quality. This project examines effectiveness of design innovations and reduction in capital costs of Anaerobic Digestion.

  4. Pneumatic Conveyance Technology for Native Seed Harvesters

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

    Reclamation or restoration of sustainable native grasslands is constrained by the lack of seed of many difficult to harvest species. The lack of seed of many species stems from the lack of harvest equipment that can effectively dislodge, separate, convey, and off-load seed with challenging morphologies. The project will develop a pneumatic conveyance technology to integrate with the seed dislodgem ...

  5. Biosolids for Biodiesel

    SBC: Emerald Ranches, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Biodiesel is a type of diesel fuel that is made from vegetable oil instead of petroleum. Obstacles to wide scale use in the US are the higher cost of biodiesel and the dearth of local processing facilities. In Washington State, canola is a high oil seed crop that can be used to make biodiesel. The canola meal that is left after oil extraction is an excellent food for cattle. However, high producti ...

  6. Marketing and Logistics System for Retail Distribution of Roundwood Poles

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Successful completion of marketing and logistics research will provide post and pole plants in rural communities, forestland managers, and distribution businesses with critical understanding of the urban retail and wholesale marketplace and how best to position roundwood as a building, woodcraft and landscape material. The effects will be to: a) stimulate demand for small diameter logs from forest ...

  7. Appropriate Technology Biomass Collection Systems for Smallwood Utilization

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The project addresses National priorities to concurrently reduce fuel loadings (i.e., remove excess forest biomass) from forested lands and improve the economic and employment sustainability of rural communities. Forestlands adjacent to roads and in the true wildland-urban interface (WUI) are among the most expensive to thin due to aesthetic, safety and public access concerns. However, near-road l ...

  8. Camelina Sativa: A Multiuse Oil Crop for Biofuel, Omega-3 Cooking Oil, and Protein/Oil Source for Animal Feed

    SBC: Great Northern Growers Cooperative            Topic: N/A

    Situation Camelina sativa (camelina, false flax, or Gold of Pleasure) is an under-utilized crop that contains valuable oil, fiber and high quality protein with many potential uses in both nutrition (human and animal) and industrial applications: Camelina has been evaluated for oil production in the US (Robinson, 1987; Putman et al. 1993), but surprisingly, it has not yet emerged as a viable US cro ...

  9. A New Techique for Automatically Filling a Storage Bin with Fruit Without the Use of Water

    SBC: Hardco LLC            Topic: N/A

    Fruit is currently harvested by hand with the only aids being a ladder and a picking bag. Fruit is placed in a storage bin in the orchard by the picker. No apples are currently being mechanically harvested for the fresh market in the U.S. A key barrier to achieving the labor savings of mechanization is the lack of a Dry Bin Filler that doesn't damage the fruit. A method of reducing the cost of ha ...

  10. Development of Environmentally Safe Transgenic Turfgrass with Improved Traits

    SBC: HybriGene, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Trait improvement of turfgrass through genetic engineering is important to the turfgrass industry and the environment. However, the possibility of transgene escape to wild and non-transformed species raises commercial and ecological concerns. The purpose of this project is to determine the usefulness of genetically engineered male sterility in turfgrass for producing stable, environmentally safe t ...
