  1. Agricultural Emissions Reduction Using Bio-Fuels with Membrane Supplied Nitrogen

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The use of biodiesel offers significant advantages with regards to the reduction of total harmful engine emissions with the exception of NOx. Biodiesel is a renewable resource and soybean oil is known to be economically viable as a biodiesel fuel. Recent studies from the Environmental Protection Agency have shown that soybean oil alone or blended with #2 diesel fuel results in a significant decrea ...

  2. Evaluation of Pine Mulch with Compost as a New Erosion and Sediment Control Product for Construction Activities

    SBC: Compost Wizard            Topic: N/A

    Overabundance of fiber from young trees derived from first thinnings with little or no market is a serious problem for the timber industry as well as private landowners. Because of this, many private landowners fail to conduct appropriate timber management which in turn causes reductions in stand volume, increased risk of insect and/or disease from reduced stand vigor, reduced browse for wildlife ...

  3. Creation of Cost Competitive Biodegradable Films from Renewable Resources for Agriculture

    SBC: Danimer Scientific, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Removal and disposal of agricultural mulch films made from polyethylene requires large expenditures of time and money, and creates excessive demand for landfill space. The purpose of this project is to create agricultural mulch films from renewable resources that can be incorporated into the soil for disposal rather than being landfilled.

  4. The Use of Reproductive Technology to Improve Flounder Growth

    SBC: GREATBAY AQUACULTURE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Summer flounder (Paralichthys dentatus) are a valuable commercial and recreational species with a natural range from the southern Gulf of Maine to South Carolina. Landings of Atlantic flounders decreased from 90,000 mt in 1984 to 25,000 mt in 1994. Total annual landings of summer flounder peaked at 39.9 million pounds in 1979, but recently from 1990-2003 landings have been much lower, fluctuating ...

  5. BtBooster as a Biopesticide Potentiator

    SBC: INSECTIGEN INC            Topic: N/A

    Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) biopesticides are an environmentally safe alternative to chemical pesticides but less efficacious than chemical alternatives. The purpose of this study is to determine the suitability of BtBooster in improving Bt biopesticides so that it as good as or better than the more efficacious chemical alternatives.

  6. Goldenseal, Germplasm Improvement through Micropropagation

    SBC: SLEEPY HOLLOW FARM            Topic: N/A

    One problem that exists for manufacturers producing standardized medicinal plant products is variability of raw material. Most medicinal plant products are produced from material which has been collected from the wild resulting in a wide range of bioactive ingredient content. Increasing demand for these products has resulted in some of the more effective plants, including Hydrastis canadensis (gol ...

  7. Mechanized in vivo Production of Entomopathogenic Nematodes: Expanding Biocontrol Utility

    SBC: Southeastern Insectaries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Due to environmental and regulatory concerns, research and development of non-chemical alternatives for pest suppression is necessary. Entomopathogenic nematodes are environmentally friendly biocontrol agents that can suppress a wide variety of economically important insect pests including the black vine weevil, the Japanese beetle, diaprepes root weevil, and fungus gnats. Commercialization of the ...

  8. Spirit Lake Leadership Training Project: Software to Bridge the Cultural & Digital Divide

    SBC: SPIRIT LAKE CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The technical problem to be addressed is how to apply instructional technology to develop both computer skills and vocational skills for the significant proportion of the reservation workforce that is chronically unemployed. A successful Phase I will demonstrate the feasibility of a training application aimed at that 41% who have given up looking for work, as well as those currently unemployed, ra ...

  9. Enhanced Cool Processing of Value Added Beverages

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Osmotic distillation is an excellent method for highly concentrating thermally sensitive liquids at low temperatures. However, commercial success of this process has been limited due to lack of membrane stability during the processing of economically interesting liquids. We believe that our high flux, non-porous perfluoromembrane is an ideal candidate for OD in that it has high flux rates and will ...
