  1. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Developing a non-contact, fault detection system for airblast-type orchard and vineyard sprayers with simplistic visual operator interface

    SBC: APPLICATION INSIGHT, LLC            Topic: 813

    Nozzle clogging on orchard and vineyard sprayers is a problem that often isn't addressed until the nozzle(or multiple nozzles) are inoperable to the point that an operator can visually detect the fault. By then anunknown portion of the field has been sprayed inadequately since the fault was not immediately detected.We propose a technology that continually monitors a sprayer via imaging and which w ...

  6. Development of a high pressure chemical delivery system for aerial application platforms

    SBC: APPLICATION INSIGHT, LLC            Topic: 813

    This project's goal is to reduce spray drift from aerial applications while at the same timesignificantly increase the efficiency and profitability of aerial applicators. The project willachieve this objective through development of a scalable commercial-scale high pressurechemical delivery system designed to mount on most any piloted fixed or rotary-wing aircraftand potentially larger Unmanned Ae ...

  8. Development of efficacious RNAi-based baits for RIFA control

    SBC: NANOSUR LLC            Topic: 82

    Imported Fire Ants (Solenopsis richteri Solenopsis invicta) are invasive pests which currentlyinfest over 140 million ha in 14 states. Damages related to fire ants have a significant impact onmany economic sectors including agriculture and biodiversity. The estimated annual cost spent onfire ant control is 3 billion dollars. Current chemical insecticides used in fire ant control are notselective c ...

  9. Development of High Squalene Tobacco

    SBC: SynShark LLC            Topic: 88

    SynShark LLC aims to create an economically viable source of squalene from American tobacco. Squalene is a triterpene important to the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry. Unfortunately squalene is mainly sourced through the "livering" of millions of deep-sea sharks threatening their populations. Through the Company's exclusively licensed technology for triterpene squalene which is extracted from ...
