  1. Solar Powered Electrochemical Carbon Dioxide Generator-Based Mosquito Surveillance System

    SBC: Med-e-cell            Topic: N/A

    Mosquitoes and biting flies are significant problems further aggravated by the insect's ability to transfer diseases like West Nile encephalitis, malaria, dengue fever and yellow fever. Disease treatments are few and one way to reduce its spread is through reduction of mosquito populations. Surveillance is an important part of mosquito management programs. The release of carbon dioxide, a mosquito ...

  2. Separation of Zein in a Dry-grind Ethanol Plant

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In the next few years, production of fuel-grade ethanol is expected to increase dramatically. The new ethanol production capacity will increase the supply-and decrease the price-of co-product streams. Zein is a potentially important co-product that could become interesting as a polymer raw material if it can be economically recovered. The purpose of this project--and the key breakthrough needed to ...

  3. Multi-gas Sensors for Monitoring Air Emissions from Livestock Operations

    SBC: PICARRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The rapid proliferation of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations has raised concerns about both health and environmental impacts of aerial emissions from animal production and waste management systems. The purpose of this project is to develop an ultra-sensitive instrument, based on cavity ringdown spectroscopy, that will enable researchers to continuously monitor hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, nitro ...

  4. An Inexpensive MEMS-Based Pesticide Detector for Long-Term Monitoring

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Pesticides are a continuing source and significant contributor to decreases in air quality. Most pesticides create risk to humans, animals, or the environment by causing health problems, such as birth defects, nerve damage, cancer, and effects that might manifest themselves in the future. Accurate tracking of residual pesticides can aid in eliminating these effects. Today, accurate monitoring requ ...

  5. An Analysis System for Operations and Environmental Impact of Offshore Tuna Farms

    SBC: System Science Applications            Topic: N/A

    Assessing the environment impact of aquaculture operations, such as nutrient loading. Optimizing placement and stocking of aquaculture installations. This project aims to further develop, validate, and implement with a GIS framework quantitative models for assessing the environmental impact and operational optimization of aquaculture operations.

  6. DESICCATION OF ENTOMOGENOUS NEMATODES FOR LONG-TERM MASS STORAGE

    SBC: Biosys            Topic: N/A

    INFECTIVE JUVENILES (IJ'S) OF STEINERNEMATID NEMATODES IN THE GENUS NEOAPLECTANA ARE EFFECTIVE CONTROL AGENTS FOR A WIDE RANGE OF INSECT PESTS. MARKET REQUIREMENTS FOR THE YEAR 1987 DETERMINE A PRODUCTION GOAL OF 1011 NEMATODES PER WEEK, WITH 1988 REQUIREMENTS APPROXIMATING 1016 PER WEEK. PHASE I ADDRESSES THE PROBLEM OF STORAGE AND SHIPMENT OF S SUCH LARGE NUMBERS (=LARGE VOLUMES) OF NEMATODES. I ...

  7. ISOLATION OF MAIZE NUCLEAR MALE STERILE GENES BY TRANSPOSON-TAGGING

    SBC: Dna Plant Technologi            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO USE TRANSPOSON-TAGGING TO ISOLATE A NUCLEAR MALE STERILE (MS) GENE FROM MAIZE. WE HAVE GENERATED EIGHT NEW MALE STERILE MUTANTS IN STOCKS CARRYING THE TRANSPOSABLEELEMENT ACTIVATOR (AC) AND WE ARE CURRENTLY ANALYZING DNA FROM THESE MUTANTS FOR THE PRESENCE OF NOVEL RESTRICTION FRAGMENTS CARRYING AC HOMOLOGOUS SEQUENCES. PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS HAS ALLOWED US TO IDENTIFY SEVERAL UNIQUE R ...

  9. COMBUSTION ENHANCER FOR PRESCRIPTION BURNING OF CHAPARRAL

    SBC: Humbug Mountain Research            Topic: N/A

    VEGETATION MANAGEMENT BY PRESCRIBED BURNING CAN BE MADE MOREVERSATILE IF THE WINDOW OF CLIMATE CONDITIONS DURING WHICH A BURN IS FEASIBLE CAN BE EXTENDED. TESTING TO ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF AN OXIDIZER-CONTAINING COMBUSTION ENHANCER TOPROVIDE THE EXTENSION FOR PRESCRIBED BURNING OF CHAPARRAL IS PROPOSED. THE BASIC APPROACH ENTAILS THE APPLICATION OF OXIDIZER-CONTAINING COMBUSTION ENHANCER DIRECT ...
