  3. Genetic sex reversal of rainbow trout

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 87

    A majority of rainbow trout produced in the US are derived from all-female stocks due to improved harvest traits and efficiency over mixed sex stocks. The development of all-female stocks currently relies on the use of the testosterone derivative 17 & #945; & #8722;methyltestosterone, however the long term use of this method is not guaranteed as regulations governing the use of the substan ...

  5. Demonstration of an Affordable and Scalable Anaerobic Digester and Fiber Processing System for Dairy Manure

    SBC: ORGANIX, INC.            Topic: 88

    The project will develop a cost-effective strategy for disposing of manure produced on dairy farms by developing an affordable anaerobic digestion method that requires lower infrastructure investment and operating costs. This will lead to less reliance on traditional energy sources for dairies and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. It also will provide an additional revenue source for the farmer fr ...

  6. Research and development leading to commercial feed and fertilizer products made from struvite extracted from dairy wastewater.

    SBC: Multiform Harvest Inc            Topic: 84

    Multiform Harvest Inc. ("Multiform") produces the fertilizer struvite, which is magnesium ammonium phosphate hexahydrate. Multiform produces the struvite by extracting it from wastewaters containing excess phosphorus. Multiform sells into two markets: 1) wastewater generators who need to reduce the phosphorus content of the wastewater; and 2) consumers of the nutrients provided by the st ...

  7. Micro-encapsulation and Nanotechnology Treatments to Prevent Proteolytic Diseases of Aquatic Animals

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 87

    Many fungal and bacterial pathogens produce proteolytic enzymes that facilitate penetration into fish skin or eggshells. These diseases are a major and growing challenge to sustainable aquaculture in the United States. Our Phase I research results demonstrated the feasibility of new, non-toxic, disease prevention and treatment strategies. The key is our focus on safe, natural materials combined wi ...

  8. Quieting of Continuous Miner Scrubber Fan Noise

    SBC: AVEC, Inc.            Topic: NIOSH

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposal targets a specific mission of NIOSH and the current SBIR solicitation: hearing loss prevention for mine workers. The main objective of this work is to reduce the noise radiated by Continuous Miners (CM). Since CMs are responsible for about 30% of noise exposures above permissible levels [MSHA, 2006], reducing the noise in this machine would have a ...
