  1. Delivery of nematicides to control plant parasitic nematodes by using Tobacco mild green mosaic tobamovirus as a nanocarrier

    SBC: BIOPRODEX INC            Topic: 82

    We have developed a bioinspired nanoparticle technology using the coat protein (CP) assemblies ofTobacco mild green mosaic tobamovirus (TMGMV) to deliver nematicides to roots reduce dosageand improve soil mobility efficacy and safety. The CP's zwitterionic nature allows the loading andrelease of nematicides. The TMGMV-delivered nematicides (TDN) are efficacious againstCaenorhabditis elegans in liq ...

  2. ImmobiZyme™ Platform for Enzyme Recycling in Bioethanol Production

    SBC: Guild Associates, Inc.            Topic: 88

    Bioethanol plants face several challenges to meet their operating costs and remain profitable. As the industry matures and becomes more cost competitive, risk-management, improving efficiency, and reducing operation costs have become higher priorities of plant operators. The majority of bioethanol produced in the U.S. is corn-based. Ground corn is treated with alpha-amlyase and gluocamylase to red ...

  4. Precision Time-to-Harvest Forecasting of Specialty Crops

    SBC: GEOVISUAL TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: 813

    Specialty Crop production margins are eroded by input costs impacts of weather pests anddiseases and market price fluctuations. Producers routinely overproduce to hedge against lossesfrom environmental impacts and ensure sufficient supply to meet retail account demand furtherreducing their average margins. If they had greater certainty in advance of how much they willproduce and when it will be ha ...

  7. Automated Modular Algae Cultivation For Aquaculture

    SBC: Culture Fuels, Inc.            Topic: 87

    There is compelling value to feeding live algae in fish hatcheries as the current survival rate oflarvae fed frozen paste is relatively low resulting in higher costs.However the complexity andcosts of existing photo-bioreactors and the logistical costs of shipping live material over distancesare barriers to the widespread deployment of live algae as feed.Culture BioSystems has successfully grown a ...
