  1. Processing of Poultry Manure for Fuel Gas Production

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agricultural activities produce large quantities of animal wastes in the form of manures. Currently, the accumulation of manures from animal husbandry operations is a serious threat to water supplies. The technology for conversion of poultry manure into fuel gases by using heat can be integrated with internal combustion (IC) engines, microturnines, or fuel cells and have widespread agricultural us ...

  2. Developing Novel Rice Cultivars with Improved Processing Properties

    SBC: Anawah, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Rice bran spoils rapidly because the oils become rancid due to the activity of particular lipase enzymes. Thus rice bran, though an abundant by-product of milling, has little value. Our project may lead to improved rice varieties that have bran that is less prone to spoilage.

  3. Probiotic System for Bivalve Shellfish Aquaculture- Phase II

    SBC: AquaTechnics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Marine fish, shrimp and shellfish are produced from marine hatcheries and nurseries but, to date, the inevitable bacterial colonization of these systems has been an uncontrolled variable. Proposed Phase II research builds on very promising Phase I laboratory studies showing that beneficial (probiotic) bacteria improved the survival rate of oyster larvae from commercial hatcheries by a highly stati ...

  4. Phase II: Estimation of Fish Biomass and Size in Aquaculture Pens Using Digital Echosounding

    SBC: BioSonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Assessment of biomass and fish size in aquaculture is needed for a number of reasons, including: 1. Determining feed rates according to the number and size of fish in each pen. 2. Appraisal of growth rates and food conversion factors. 3. Inventory of fish required by banks and insurance companies. 4. Early detection of fish losses. 5. Determining proper dosages for the treatment of disease. Curren ...

  6. Development of a Device to Cost Effectively Produce Bluegrass Seed Without Field Burning or Tillage

    SBC: Diamond-S Farms, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The traditional dryland farming method for growing and harvesting bluegrass seeds uses open-field grass burning to maintain productive growth for up to 10 years. Concerns about air quality will not permit the continued use of burning, however, with non-burning methods, the seed production period is too short to provide an economically sustainable operation. Finding an alternative method to cost ef ...

  7. Marketing and Logistics System for Roundwood Component Kits and Materials

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Rural communities in forested areas need to thin small diameter trees from overstocked stands. The smallwood does not have adequate market demand to support the cost of collection and delivery. This project explores the opportunity to market more smallwood to retail customers and urban markets by developing designs, plan sets, marketing and logistics systems.

  8. In-vitro Germination of Cypripedium Montanum Seeds and Protocorm Propagation

    SBC: Kelsey Creek Laboratories            Topic: N/A

    Mountain Lady's Slipper populations are threatened when western forests are lost to overgrazing and forest destruction (fires, etc.) In addition, in-vitro cultures of this orchid have been very difficult and limited. This project is directed toward developing in-vitro methods of culturing this terrestrial orchid so that it could be reestablished in forest restoration programs and possibly develope ...

  9. Packaging of Poultry Litter for Economically Viable Storage and Transportation

    SBC: Mammoth Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Poultry production in the United States has reached record levels. Broilers in particular are being delivered to market at a rate in excess of 8 billion birds annually. The aged bedding material that must be removed from the houses where these birds are grown is known as broiler litter. It is generated at an average rate of 1.2-1.7 tons per thousand broilers. The annual production of broiler litte ...

  10. A Low-Cost Electrocatalytic Sensor for ppb Determination of Ethylene in Air

    SBC: MICROENERGY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is a continuing trend throughout the world toward consumption of more fresh and minimally processed foods. Availability of high quality fresh fruits and vegetables is now year round, thanks to improved packaging, storage technologies and rapid global transportation. The abundance of year round fresh produce is dependent on a vast infrastructure including specialized refrigerated storage faci ...
