  3. Moving baffle for improving solids transport and reducing labor costs and phosphorous discharge in aquaculture raceways

    SBC: AEB ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: N/A

    Flow-through raceways have velocities below that needed to remove solids from rearing areas and thus require intermittent, manual sweeping to remove the solids producing long solid residence times and exposure to mechanical breakage which results in increased phosphorous leaching and poor fish health. This SBIR proposal offers a novel moving baffle as a new technology to solve these concerns. Prel ...

  4. Improving Rice Abiotic Stress Tolerance

    SBC: Arcadia Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Abiotic stresses such as drought, soil salinization and temperature extremes are the most important factors limiting crop yields worldwide. Impending climate change threatens to exacerbate the impact of abiotic stresses and jeopardize future food supplies. Despite intense effort, plant breeders have had difficulty in breeding for improved abiotic stress tolerance. In addition, plant biologists hav ...

  5. Plant Expression of Cellulase for Biomass Ethanol Production

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Edenspace Systems Corporation seeks to achieve a substantial decrease in the production costs of cellulosic ethanol biofuel by engineering a promising biofuel crop, switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.), with up to three different genes that produce cellulases. When activated by heat, these enzymes break down biomass cellulose into simple sugars that can serve as biofuel feedstocks. Microbially-produ ...

  6. Low Cost, High Performance Spectroscopic Ammonia Sensor for Livestock Emissions Monitoring

    SBC: Ekips Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The National Research Council has concluded that ammonia is a major concern for air quality at global, national and regional scales. In the US, livestock operations are believed to contribute over 80% of the total emissions of ammonia. Specific interest in ammonia emissions from livestock operations stems from concerns with the negative impacts of high ammonia levels on air quality and environmen ...

  7. Breath Alkanes in Bovine

    SBC: Ekips Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "This project will test the feasibility of a breath alkane as an indicator of respiratory health in bovine. Significant losses due to bovine respiratory disease (BRD) occur in the U.S. beef industry with estimated annual losses at $1 billion due to higher medical costs, decreased weight gain, lower quality meat and death. BRD is highly transmittable and accounts for approximately 75% of morbidity ...

  8. Low Cost and Environmentally Compliant (Air and Water Emissions) On-Site Dairy Manure Management Composting Technology


    Title: Development of a Low Cost and Environmentally Effective On-Site Dairy Manure Management Composting Technology. Directors: Timothy ONeill, President, Engineered Compost Systems Problem: Dairies face restrictive air and water quality regulations for manure, and compliance represents a significant cost. To remain competitive, dairies need manure management systems that are: 1. Economically via ...

  9. Rapid Immunoassay for the Detection of the Bacterium Producing Necrotizing Hepatopancreatitis in Cultured Penaeid Shrimp

    SBC: Inbios International Inc            Topic: N/A

    Aquaculture of shrimp is a multi-billion dollar business worldwide. Infection of shrimp grown by aquaculture with the organism leading to Necrotizing HepatoPancreatitis (NHP) is frequently encountered in North, Central and South America and can lead to devastating economic consequences if not detected early. Current methods for testing require shipping samples to centralized laboratories to perfor ...

  10. A New Concept for Removal of Phosphorus from Dairy Farm Waste

    SBC: Multiform Harvest Inc            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project addresses the problem of over-application of phosphorus to cropland by dairy farms who irrigate their cropland with livestock wastewater. Dairy farmers who have been over-applying phosphorus are facing environmental restrictions to reduce phosphorus. There have been no cost-effective options for those who need to reduce most. Expansion of irrigated acreage will solve the probl ...
