  1. Optimum Control of Induction Generators for Water Current Energy Harnessing

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: 815

    Optimization of generator performance and maximization of output power are difficult to attain in the generation of hydro-power. This is due to the changing water conditions and corresponding changes in the form of available energy. ESL proposes to use self-tuning controls in combination with a suitably chosen and optimized generator driven by hydro-energy and condition it for distributi ...

  2. The Use of Ion-Accumulating Halophytes for the Phytoremediation of Saline and Selenium Impacted Soil and Water in Cold-Arid Climates

    SBC: BLUE MOON BULBS LLP            Topic: 84

    The Bureau of Land Management and other agencies have called the rapid expansion of energy exploration on the Rocky Mountain Front, the single largest environmental challenge facing the western U.S. The Powder River Basin (PRB) of Wyoming and Montana is an area of major development for coal bed methane gas (CBM) exploration. CBM resides in underground coal seams, trapped by large aquifers of water ...

  3. Development of a Mycoherbicide for Control of Dandelion

    SBC: Agricultural Resch Init            Topic: 82

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program will evaluate a fungal organism as a mycoherbicide for control of dandelion in the turf. Because of significant growth in the turf grass industry and the subsequent increase in use of chemical herbicides, this technology can have impact to lessen environmental issues surrounding pesticide use, especially in areas of high public contact such a ...

  4. Commercial-Scale Implementation of Blue-Catfish Germplasm for Hybrid Production

    SBC: BAXTER LAND COMPANY ,INC            Topic: 87

    Our long-range goal is to cryopreserve blue catfish sperm reliably at a commercial scale in a cost-effective manner for high-throughput production of catfish hybrids. This effort could allow farmers to specialize in germplasm only, or hybrid fingerling production only, thereby diversifying the industry and enhancing economic opportunities for catfish producers throughout rural southeastern region ...

  5. Plant Produced Porcine IL-12 Vaccine Adjuvant for Swine Flu and Other Viral Diseases

    SBC: Biostratagies, LC            Topic: 82

    As the nation attempts to meet the challenges posed by the spread of pandemic influenza there is a need for innovative strategies to produce effective vaccines for humans, poultry and livestock. Interleukin-12 (IL-12) is a potent adjuvant of cell-mediated immunity that has been shown to enhance protection afforded by influenza vaccines. The use of IL-12 adjuvant could improve vaccines for several ...

  6. A Sensitive Single-tube Immunocapture Real-Time RT-PCR for Early Detection of Plant Pathogens in Crops

    SBC: AC DIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: 82

    Plant virus infections cause tremendous economic losses in agricultural production each year in the U.S. Potential introduction of foreign pathogens which could threaten the safety of American agriculture has accelerated in recent years because of increasing international seed and plant trade. The first line of defense against such devastating viral diseases is the early and sensitive detection of ...

  7. Feasibility Test of Seedster Technology to Improve Quantity and Quality of Carrot and Yarrow Seed

    SBC: NATIVE SEEDSTERS, INC            Topic: 813

    The production of hybrid carrot seed is difficult because of the indeterminacy of ripening and the tendency to shatter mature seeds. The umbel (flat-top cluster) inflorescences (seedheads) of carrots mature sequentially over a 3-4 week period. The primary (king) umbel matures first, followed by the secondary and tertiary umbels. The standard harvest method is to swath when the primary and many of ...

  8. Seedster Technology for More Seed Recovery, Less Impurities and Faster Ground Speed Harvesting Camelina for Biodiesel Feedstock

    SBC: NATIVE SEEDSTERS, INC            Topic: 88

    Camelina seed production is expanding throughout the semi-arid portion of the wheat belt and is proposed for intercropping between rows in vineyards and nut orchards. These markets and the market need for small maneuverable harvesters for research plots and breeder blocks have created a need for an inexpensive, but efficient, camelina harvester. The Seedster has the potential for meeting the deman ...

  9. New Controlled Release Fertilizer Systems Derived from Biomass

    SBC: RIVERTOP RENEWABLES, INC.            Topic: 813

    Studies have shown that up to 70 percent of conventionally applied fertilizer goes unutilized by plants and becomes a contaminant of surface and ground (drinking) water. Fertilizer run-off in surface water leads to oxygen depletion of streams, lakes, and other bodies of water. Without oxygen, the water becomes uninhabitable for fish and other aquatic organisms. In addition to the negative environm ...

  10. An Ozark Regional Pilot Program to Manufacture Economical, Value-Added Products Qualifying for USDA Certified Organic Status.

    SBC: SEA STAR INTERNATIONAL, LLC            Topic: 812

    We propose to improve the sustainability and profitability of small organic pecan farmers by developing an agricultural enterprise from their pecan shell waste that will produce organic, value-added, specialty antimicrobials--specifically to address the needs of organic poultry industry. Liquid smoke generated from organic pecan shells represents the ideal combination of a highly effective organic ...
