Spatial Image Digitizer to Improve Agricultural GIS
This spatial image digitizer (SID) provides not only normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data with true color imagery but can also indicate soil texture variability. From 2017 to 2018 there is a forecasted nearly twelve percent drop in farming net income in the U.S., making 2018 forecasted to have the lowest net income in over eight years...

Engineered Aquaculture Ecosystem for Managing Wastewater
This aquaculture ecosystem utilizes low RPM paddlewheels to control water flow rate and feed fish waste to algae to reduce eutrophication effects. For every ton of fish produced as much as 66 kilograms of nitrogen waste and 10.5 kilograms of phosphorus waste are produced. The waste feeds plankton and algae, and in excess can lead to blooms and then...

Carbon Dioxide Capture in Cement Manufacturing
The US cement industry produces over 41million metric tons (MMT) of process-related CO2 per year1. That total excludes the CO2 released from the burning of fossil fuel to heat the process. This invention provides a method of capturing much of that CO2 for sale or storage.Using several possible methods, the CO2 may be captured and reintroduced into ...
