  1. Development of Equipment Washers for Invasive Plant Protection

    SBC: Kennedy, Sheilah A            Topic: 081FH3

    SK realistic estimated timeline of 18 months maximum, hopefully sooner, will allow for design, engineer and testing modifications to be addressed. SK learned from Phase II that even the simple modifications can result in hours of engineering and design work. The successful completion of the DOTWASH system was designed and developed. The overall components were tested with good operating capabiliti ...

  2. Evaluation of a split-pond production system for baitfish culture

    SBC: HARRY SAUL MINNOW FARM, INC.            Topic: 87

    Arkansas produces 80 percent of all the baitfish in the US and annually exports more than 6 billion baitfish nationwide. However, baitfish farmers have suffered from a productivity reduction due to serious fish losses resulting from interminable predation and extensive inventory control in traditional ponds. Recently, unprecedented bird predation and unknown factors, possibly due to climate change ...

  3. AUTOMOMOUS REPORTING AND TRACKING OF PESTICIDE INCIDENTS IN HONEY BEE COLONIES

    SBC: BEE ALERT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 813

    This project is aimed at helping plant production and protection by providing a means of rapid, autonomous reporting of pesticide incidents impacting honey bee colonies. We propose research leading to the design of an electronic device to monitor bee colonies for exposure to pesticides, specifically neonicotinoids in Phase I, and to remotely notify appropriate parties (e.g., beekeeper, grower, res ...

  4. Model Based Control for Dryer Energy Conservation

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Producers of solid and liquid biofuels need to reduce both capital and operating costs to achieve unsubsidized cost parity with fossil fuels. Many biomass feedstocks destined for conversion platforms must be dried, however, the capital cost for dryers is high due to long residence times and the operating cost is high due to system inefficiencies. Consistent and reliable operation of biomass dryers ...

  5. Direct Conversion of Farm Manure to Biodiesel and ethanol Utilizing a Novel Extremophilic Fungus

    SBC: Sustainable Bioproducts LLC            Topic: 88

    Agriculture in the United States produces significant quantities of waste manure that can be converted to biofuels. Current technologies to covert manure into fuels are typically limited by poor conversion efficiencies, the requirement for significant and costly inputs and controls to sustain the conversion process, and the low cost of the produced fuel (methane). Consequently, implementation and ...

  6. ADVANCED CONTROL SYSTEM FOR BIOMASS COMBUSTION

    SBC: ENERTECHNIX, INC.            Topic: 81

    Combustion of biomass, especially in small-scale applications, produces high emissions of particulate matter (PM) that have been linked to adverse health effects and global climate change. Current industrial particulate control solutions are prohibitively expensive for use in small scale biomass burners. To overcome these challenges, inexpensive and effective combustion control solutions for small ...

  7. Genetic Sex Reversal in Rainbow Trout

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 87

    Female rainbow trout show improved uniformity of growth, more desirable carcass traits and reduced expression of sexual maturation compared to mixed-sex stocks, thus improving efficiency and return for the trout farming industry. As a result, all-female stocks are much more desirable, and currently comprise the vast majority (over 90%) of the rainbow trout sold in the US. Current methods of produc ...

  8. Commercializing the Effective K-3 Assessment to Instruction (A2i) Intervention to Reduce Cost and to Scale Access to the Benefit of More Students

    SBC: LEARNING OVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: Students who fail to achieve proficient levels of literacy are at increased risk for grade retention, referral to special education, and dropping out of high school. The kindergarten through 3rd grade years are particularly important for students to gain a strong foundation in reading as those who continue to struggle with reading are significantly less likely to achieve reading proficien ...

  10. Eco: An Online Virtual World for Secondary School Environmental Literacy and Collaborative Problem Solving

    SBC: STRANGE LOOP GAMES INC.            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of Eco, a multi-player game to prepare high school students to be environmentally literate citizens with 21st century skills. To play the game, students will enter a shared online world featuring a simulated ecosystem of plants and animals. Students will co-create the civilization by measuring, modeling, and analyzing the underlying ecosystem. Students ad ...
