Abstract:… branch out from their center, resulting in a specific core and surface, like a cell. In this project, we will produce high molecular weight dendrimers with a tough and chemically resistant polycarbonate core. Soy methyl ester, otherwise known as common biodiesel, will be… more
Abstract:Glycerol, also called glycerin(e), is a byproduct or contaminant of biofuel production. Glycerol must be removed from biofuels before they can be burned in order to avoid damage to combustion engines. The standard for biodiesel is less than 0.02% by weight (ASTM D6751; ASTM… more
Abstract:… Soldier Fly insects, Hermetia Illucens (BSF) to consume fresh food waste from discarded from restaurants and cafeterias. Once fully grown, these insects can be harvested daily and processed into a local, non-imported sustainable chicken feed and a press oil for biodiesel.… more
Abstract:… dedicated bioenergy crops from renewable biomass resources is a goal with great relevance to current environmental and security issues on a global scale. There are significant ecological, economic and political pressures to develop liquid biofuels production (such as … more
Abstract:… & #8208;scale implementation of the technology. Camelina sativa, a European oilseed that is now being produced across the arid High Prairies of the West, is an economic and abundant source of peroxidases. Camelina oil can be used for production of quality biodiesel. To… more
Abstract:…, enhanced national security and macroeconomic benefits for rural communities and society at large. Much of these activities were directed toward fuel and energy production (e.g. fermentation of biomass to ethanol and transesterification of triglyceride oils to biodiesel)… more
Abstract:Although biodiesels have been increasingly used in automobiles, trains, commercial aircrafts and heating systems, they are not currently used in the military aircrafts and land vehicles because they typically do not meet the JP-8 performance criteria as specified by… more
Abstract:… provides an opportunity to produce a desirable bio-based alternative to environmentally un-friendly and increasingly expensive petroleum-based rigid polyurethane foams. Recently, much activity has been directed to utilize the oil from soybean to produce biodiesel,… more
Abstract:… and more compact than systems based upon traditional reforming approaches. The reformer will operate on a wide variety of fuels, including traditional sulfur-containing military fuels, such as JP-8, JP-5, diesel, gasoline, and LPG, and biofuels, such as biodiesel, ethanol, and… more
Abstract:Alternative fuels have become a focal point for DoD programs. With the recent mandates to use alternative fuels, refineries have been forced to blend biofuels (including FAME biodiesel) into conventional fuels; which are then introduced into the existing distribution… more
Abstract:The use of Biodiesel in the U.S. is presently hampered by a lack of suitable feedstocks that do not compete with the food industry. The original biodiesel feedstock was food grade soybean oil, and became a significant problem: 1) politically, because of the impact on food… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop and commercialize cost-effective high performance macromolecular antioxidants based on Polnox's proprietary "dual type moiety per molecule" (DT-mPM) technology for sustainable-alternate bio-oils.… more
Abstract:…ced taro harvests for the small and mid-sized farms that comprise the local taro industry by 18% to 25% annually. This project will research a unique control for apple snail on Hawai`i's wetland taro production using the unrefined glycerin co-product (UCP) from biodiesel… more
Abstract:…vironmentally unfriendly solvents such as hexane due to the difficulty in isolating oil components from residual biomass and water. Alternative strategies are urgently needed to purify the valuable oil components from algae that can be subsequently processed into useful … more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes a potentially viable solution for many financially stressed biodiesel producers. Industry estimates that 75% of the installed base of 173 U.S. producers is currently idle. In order become economically… more
Abstract:… dewatering. A promising feedstock for biofuels is photosynthetic algae, which can produce lipids in much higher yields per acre then can terrestrial crops. Currently, the harvesting and extracting of the oil consumes 40%-60% of the energy required to produce biodiesel from… more
Abstract:… the remaining reserves for themselves. A strategy to mitigate this risk is to develop alternative energy sources such as biofuels. This Phase II SBIR proposal describes the development of a heterogeneous transesterification catalyst for the conversion of oil to biodiesel. The… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of using manure from cattle and hogs to make bio-diesel and, in so doing, reducing the environmental impact of releasing untreated or anaerobically fermented manure. The rich mineral… more
Abstract:… address fat, oil, and grease (?brown grease?) reclaimed out of the wastewater collected from restaurant grease interceptors. These contain free fatty acids (?FFA?), glycerides and a significant amount of sulfur compounds (soaps, detergents, etc.). Thus, crude biodiesel… more
Abstract:Mandates for biofuels have resulted in the significant increase of biodiesel production in rural communities. Hawaii's Jatropha biodiesel production will produce nearly 650-700 kg of residues, consisting of Jatropha seedcake and fruit hulls for every metric ton of seeds… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
