  1. Advanced Biomass Reburning for High Efficiency NOx Control

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A environmental problem faced by the power generation industry involves controlling flue gas emissions from coal fired boilers. Specifically, the 1990 Clean Air Amendments mandate a 2,000,000 ton per year decrease in nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions. Reburning is a mature fuel staging NOx control technology which has been successfully demonstrated at full scale by Energy and Environmental Research ...

  2. A QUICK DIAGNOSTIC TEST TO DETECT A DEADLY BACTERIA INFECTING CHANNEL CATFISH

    SBC: Athens Research And Technology            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL CATFISH PRODUCTION IS SIGNIFICANTLY IMPAIRED BY INFECTIOUS DISEASES, A MAJOR CAUSE OF ECONOMIC LOSSES TO THE CATFISH PRODUCER. ONE OF THE MOST DETRIMENTAL OF THESE INFECTIOUS DISEASES IS ENTERIC SEPTICEMIA OF CATFISH (ESC) CAUSED BY EDWARDSIELLA ICTALURI. IN 1987, APPROXIMATELY $4 MILLION WORTH OF FISH IN MISSISSIPPI ALONE DIED FROM ESC. PROMPT TREATMENT OF INFECTED FISH INCREASES THE C ...

  3. Rapid Analysis and Cataloging of the Physical Properties of Potatoes

    SBC: Quantum Magnetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The accurate determination of specific gravity and identification of defects in potatoes are of great interest to the industry since they affect both the processability and marketability. Preliminary research has indicated that magnetic resonance (MR) techniques are capable of rapidly and realiably determining both specific gravity and identifying internal defects in potatoes. Quantum Magnetics ...

  4. USE OF MEMBRANE AIR SEPARATOR TECHNOLOGY FOR TRANSPORT OF FRESH PRODUCE

    SBC: Perishables Research Organ.            Topic: N/A

    SPOILAGE IN TRANSIT OF SOME FRESH FOODS, PARTICULARLY PRODUCE AND MEAT CAN BE REDUCED WHEN THEY ARE HELD UNDER CONTROLLED ATMOSPHERE. MANY TECHNICAL PAPERS REPORT THAT ADJUSTING THE LEVELS OF OXYGEN, NITROGEN, CARBON DIOXIDE AND OTHER GASES IS BENEFICIAL TO MAINTAINING THE QUALITY OF FRESH FOODS ON LONG DISTANCE SHIPMENTS. SEVERAL COMMERCIAL ATTEMPTS HAVE BEEN MADE TO SUPPLY THESE CONDITIONS IN TR ...

  5. POSITIVE HORIZONTAL DISPACEMENT AIRBORNE RETARDANT DELIVERY SYSTEM

    SBC: Aero Union Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE APPLICANT FIRM PROPOSES UNDER PHASE I TO PROVE FEASIBLE A PROPOSED UNIQUE AIRBORNE RETARDANT DELIVERY SYSTEM. THE DESIGN OF THE SYSTEM WILL LIMIT THE EFFECT OF AIRCRAFT AND ATMOSPHERIC DISTUBANCES (EG. AIRCRAFT FORWARD VELOCITY, TURBULENCE, CROSS-WINDS, HUMIDITY, ETC.) TO THE AERIAL DELIVERY OF RETARDANT. FURTHER PROPOSED IS TO ALLOW FOR FLEXIBILITY AND DELIVERY RATES TO BETTER MEET CURRENT MA ...

  6. Aerial Application of Trichogramma to Control Codling Moth in Walnuts

    SBC: ARENA PESTICIDE MANAGEMENT            Topic: N/A

    Codling moth, Cydia pomonella, is a major exotic pest of walnuts, apples and pears in California. Current control practices, using the application of conventional pesticides, are costly, toxic and declining in effectivenss. Of additional concern in California is that many walnut orchards are planted along major river systems in former riparian zones where growers are or will be required to use e ...

  7. TECHNIQUES FOR THE INVITRO PRODUCTION OF POTATO SEED TUBERS

    SBC: Calgene Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT SEEKS TO DEVELOP A COMMERCIALLY VIABLE IN VITROMASS PRODUCTION SYSTEM FOR PRE-NUCLEAR SEED POTATOES. NOVEL IN VITRO TUBERIZATION ENVIRONMENTS FOR MASS PRODUCTIONWILL BE DESIGNED. OUR SYSTEM DESIGN MUST ADDRESS TWO PROCESSES; MICROPROPAGATION TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF TUBER FORMATION SITES AND THE TUBERIZATION PROCESS ITSELF. CRITERIA FOR A SUCCESSFUL FINAL PRODUCT INCLUDE: UNIFORMITY ...

  9. HIGH RESOLUTION SOIL WATER CONTENT PROFILING

    SBC: Intercomp            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A SIMPLE TO USE, QUANTITATIVE DEVICE TO ACCURATELY MEASURE SOIL WATER CONTENT WITH SUFFICIENT RESOLUTION TO DEFINE WETTING FRONTS DUE TO RAIN EVENTS IN DEPTH PROFILES. THIS GEOPHYSICAL TOOL SENSES CHANGE IN THE ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENT, SPECIFICALLY THE DIELECTRIC CONSTANT OF THE SOIL, WHICH IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO SOIL WATER CONTENT. THE SOIL WATER CONTENT PROFILING DEVICE ...
