  3. Improved Method of Processing Papayas for Food Safety and Quality

    SBC: IQF DREAM, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Papaya is a major fruit commodity in Hawaii with over 28 million pounds utilized in 2006. 26.6 million pounds of the harvested papaya are used for fresh utilization and 2.3 million pounds for processed utilization. Processed utilization is currently for aseptic puree produced by a single processor. Additional processing of papaya would be valuable because there are an estimated 3.5 million pounds ...

  4. Converting Locally Collected Waste Plastics into a Clean, Durable Growth Medium for Orchids

    SBC: Kamuela Greenhouse/Specialty Orchids            Topic: N/A

    Hawaii orchid growers, of which there are more than 70, face increasing competition from mega-nurseries in California and Florida as well as from producers in Taiwan, Thailand, and Holland. The business model among Hawaii growers tends to small, family operated concerns, by choice and tradition. A single orchid nursery in Salinas, Calif., is larger than all Hawaii orchid nurseries combined. Hawaii ...

  6. Refining Broodstock, hatchery and weaning strategies: Key to the Commercial Culture of the Imperiled Giant Grouper

    SBC: Kona Blue Water Farms, LLC            Topic: 818

    Giant Grouper (E. lanceolatus) is one of the most desirable marine fish in the world. Its robust nature, tremendous growth rate, superb quality flesh and high value make it ideal for open ocean aquaculture. Phase I research marked the first time this species has been reared in the hatchery outside of Southeast Asia. Broodstock nutrition, spawning seasonality and lunar periodicity were defined. ...

  7. Entrepreneurship from Education: Creating successful 21st century businesses from public high school vocational programs in rural, isolated

    SBC: MAKAHA STUDIOS LLC            Topic: N/A

    Many youth growing up today in some of America's isolated, rural communities have few gainful employment opportunities in their home communities since many of these communities do not have diverse and strong local economies. The proposed Entrepreneurship from Education project seeks to address this problem in one such community, the isolated and impoverished Wai'anae Coast on the western part of t ...

  8. Integration and Optimization of Hydrogen Production with Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Technology in Offshore Floating Platforms

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N04227

    OTEC is a clean, renewable energy resource capable of producing nationally-significant quantities of hydrogen in at-sea floating plants located in warm, tropical water. During phase I, Makai has developed an analytical model to technically balance and financially evaluate a large-scale OTEC-driven hydrogen (or alternate fuel) plant and industry. This computer tool technically links and balances sy ...

  9. A Tool for Recovery, Maintenance and Repair of U.S. Navy Cable Systems

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N07129

    The U.S. Navy has special requirements for recovery, maintenance and repair of seafloor cable systems. The Navy frequently makes repairs to cable systems damaged by seafloor hazards by dragging a grapnel hook near the vicinity of the break. The process of recovering the cable to make the repairs is time-consuming and without knowing the exact location of the seafloor cable, can lead to further dam ...
