  1. Renewable Energy and Energy System Automation for Energy Plus Farm

    SBC: TABER INTERNATIONAL LLC            Topic: 812

    This grant presents and opportunity to address significant problems involving farms and sustainable energy. Through the optimal matching, distribution and integration of photovoltaic (PV) solar panel systems into pastures and rangeland farm income could be nearly doubled. There is the potential to have all energy needs (transportation, electrical, heating) of the US met. (ref. 19, 25). The primary ...

  2. Researching economic feasibility of the mixed-cell raceway, providing a way for small farms to enter the aquaculture industry.

    SBC: RIPPLE ROCK FISH FARMS, LLC            Topic: 812

    With the growing demand for locally grown seafood in the United States, small farmers need an economically feasible solution to enter the aquaculture market. Consumers are seeking healthy fish, produced using sustainable methods. Currently, small farmers struggle, financially, to build viable indoor systems which can meet the needs of the local market. The goal of this project is to provide incent ...

  3. Novel and Improved Methods for Extracting Colorants from Indigo and Black Walnut

    SBC: BELLOS, SARAH            Topic: 812

    The market for natural colorants is growing. Trends in food, cosmetics, and textiles show consumers are concerned over the use of synthetic, petroleum-derived dyes and seek a more environmentally friendly option. However, manufacturers cannot compromise on quality, stability, or functionality of colorants in their products. Natural colorants, including from plants, have been used as dyes for thous ...

  5. Agronomic, environmental, and economic evaluation of cyanobacterial bio-fertilizer for small and mid-size farms growing high-value crops

    SBC: THIN AIR NITROGEN SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: 812

    Modern agriculture is highly dependent on nitrogen (N) fertilization to maintain high yields and profitability. In organic agriculture, cover crops and bulky organic amendments supply N; transport costs can be prohibitive, and energy used in transport is substantial. In conventional agriculture, industrial N fixation uses natural gas, high temperatures, and high pressures to convert atmospheric N ...

  6. Low-Cost High-Energy Extended Rotor Turbine

    SBC: SONSIGHT INC            Topic: 86

    Well over 50 % of US land area constitutes low wind-speed sites, yet current wind turbines are not effective in low winds. To extract significantly more energy from such DOE Class 1 or Class 2 wind sites requires substantially increasing turbine blade rotor diameter (wind power is proportional to the square of the blade diameter). Recently, we have successfully demonstrated advanced low-RPM genera ...

  7. Optical Communication Transceivers for Affordable Broadband Deployment in Rural Communities

    SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: 86

    1. Need and Purpose Rural areas of the United States have always been economically disadvantaged relative to urban areas. In rural areas, average incomes have been lower, poverty rates higher, and unemployment and underemployment have been more extensive. At present, with the advent of broadband communication technology, internet access offers the opportunity to break away from this rural disadvan ...

  8. Harnessing Clean River Energy with the RivGen Power System to Replace and Offset Diesel Fuel Use by Rural Communities

    SBC: ORPC ALASKA, LLC            Topic: 86

    This project will make hydrokinetic river energy, a completely renewable resource, into an economical source of clean power for river communities. ORPC will accomplish this by optimizing the prototype RivGen Power System design for lower speed river currents that are prvalent throughout the world. The RivGen Power System generates zero-emission electricity from river currents using no fossil fuels ...

  9. Electrosedation and rested harvest as strategies to improve the quality of farm-raised fish

    SBC: Smith-root, Inc.            Topic: 87

    Traditional chemical sedatives for the processing of farm-raised fish are considered animal drugs that are subject to specific regulations and usage constraints (as well as chemical-bath disposal concerns). As an alternative, we propose to evaluate the use of mild, non-lethal electrosedation techniques to narcotize farm-raised fish in an effort to evaluate the technologys potential to reduce pre-h ...

  10. On-board Electrochemical Oxygen Generator for Live Shipments of Wild Seafood and Aquaculture Products

    SBC: GINER INC            Topic: 87

    U.S. live fish exports are growing and have further potential for growth. In 2009 live fish U.S. exports were on the order of $44 million. In 2012, there was unique opportunity in the live eel export market and there were reports of $100-150 million in exports in that species alone. The overall goal of this project is to provide active oxygenation during the transportation of live aquaculture prod ...
