Finance needed to transform coffee pulping factory into a climate smart farm.

Finance needed to transform coffee pulping factory into a climate smart farm.

This project involves 5 coffee pulping factories (all in Karatina) with 477,866 coffee bushes. The annual actual cherry production in 2013 was 910,902 kg, averaging 1.9 kg per coffee bush. The proposed initiative is to produce the coffee under certified organic production standards while accounting for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction within ...

Biodegradable Oxidized Cellulose Esters

Biodegradable Oxidized Cellulose Esters

Background:

Cellulose is a common material used in numerous medical, veterinary and agricultural products. Oxidized cellulose is a biodegradable form of this product that suffers from a poor solubility in water and common organic solvents. Cellulose esters are more soluble in water and thus more commonly used as pharmaceutical excipients ...

Dispersal containment of engineered genotypes in transgenic plants

Dispersal containment of engineered genotypes in transgenic plants

 Reference: PD 08094The Problem:The unwanted dissemination of transgenic genotypes from one plant cultivar to another via pollen dispersal is a significant problem that often prevents field testing and consumer use of commercially-valuable genetically modified plants.The Technology Solution:Researchers at the University of Tennessee have developed ...

Novel construct designs for effective use of trans-acting small interference RNA (tasiRNA) technology

Novel construct designs for effective use of trans-acting small interference RNA (tasiRNA) technology

tasiRNA-Technology for Gene Silencing in Plants It is estimated that by 2050, there will be at least 9 billion people in the world to feed. As the population increases, the agricultural industry will be expected to find ways to feed the population with fewer resources and less arable land. Thus, it is necessary to research and develop crops with ...

Measurement of Cotton Stickiness

Measurement of Cotton Stickiness

Invention TitleCotton Stickiness Evaluation by means of multi-temperature testing Executive SummaryThe present invention relates generally to a method for testing stickiness of cotton using multiple temperatures.  Cotton stickiness results from a cyclical disease problem in the cotton crop. Our patented evaluation process gives users an a ...

A Drainage Block in Combination with Modular System: A Construction Element for Paved Areas, Consisting of a Block of Porous Medium and a Storage Volume, to Change the Impulsive, Fast Flowing Rainfall Runoff into a Gradually, Slow Flowing Runoff

A Drainage Block in Combination with Modular System: A Construction Element for Paved Areas, Consisting of a Block of Porous Medium and a Storage Volume, to Change the Impulsive, Fast Flowing Rainfall Runoff into a Gradually, Slow Flowing Runoff

This invention is a Low Impact Development (LID) solutions system, called Drainage Block that is effective for retention of rainfall on paved areas in average as well as in extreme conditions. The system is developed for roof runoff, but the general idea can also be applied to delay runoff from roads, parking lots and in small canals.The Drainage B ...

IMPROVED FLOW CYTOMETER HARDWARE DESIGN AND SOFTWARE ANALYSIS PACKAGE

IMPROVED FLOW CYTOMETER HARDWARE DESIGN AND SOFTWARE ANALYSIS PACKAGE

BACKGROUND: Flow cytometry and cell sorting are well-established technologies that allow for rapid multiparametric analysis of cells on an individual basis, and also for separation of highly purified populations of cells. Because the technology collects quantitative data regarding cellular size, granularity, and fluorescence intensity signals, it ...

Ghost Trap: A New Urban Mosquito Trap with Dual Capture Mechanism

Ghost Trap: A New Urban Mosquito Trap with Dual Capture Mechanism

Rutgers scientists have developed a new mosquito trap which will attract and capture both the highly invasive Aedes albopictus (Asian tiger mosquito) and Culex spp. (a key vector of West Nile Virus in New Jersey). The trap captures mosquitoes that are exhibiting oviposition (predominantly Culex spp.) AND host-seeking (predominantly Ae. Albopictus) ...

Villaya Microsol

Villaya Microsol

Microsol helps micro producers in the food, textile and paper industries with processing their raw materials by automating some of their processes, e.g. drying, washing, pasteurization, etc., or in the tertiary sector such as tourist industry by providing the energy needed for many premium services, electricity for HVAC, refrigeration or security, ...

5MW solar PV powered Industrial Park

5MW solar PV powered Industrial Park

Solar PV powered Industrial Park. The power for the industrial park will be provided by a 5MW solar PV plant. Excess power not used by sold to the grid to power a local school and trading center. It is assumed that the industrial park will utilize 500KW of this 5MW plant.
