  1. Biodegradable Lubricants from Renewable Feedstocks

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 88

    Current agriculture and off-road equipment requires the use of lubricants to ensure efficient operation of integral hydraulic and gear driven systems. The lubricants, either oils or greases, aid in reducing friction, dissipating heat, prevent oxidation, and seal of water and debris from vital areas of the equipment. During operation, equipment may have slight leaks or suffer catastrophic failures ...

    SBC: Lgl Ecological Genetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the U.S., there are more than 135,000 captive deer and elk on 2,000 ranches in 42 states. Someranchers have used deer to replace or supplement traditional livestock. Primary products of deer aremeat and velvet antler, and the industry is growing. We propose to assist the industry and regulatoryagencies using molecular genetics. Ranchers want genetic tests to help establish breeding programs ...

  5. A Rapid Detection Kit For Staphylococcal

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project investigates the rapid detection ofstaphylococcal contaminated foods. Staphylococcal food poisoning continues to be a major publichealth concern being the second leading cause of bacterial food poisoning in the United States. Thebacteria secrete staphylococcal enterotoxins and as little as 0.1¿g of SEA can produce the clinicalfeature of st ...

  6. Ozone Conversion Of Low Quality Feed Stocks

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Many crop residues, feed byproducts, forages and other biomass have little or no nutritional value asanimal feed. Lignin in these materials is the most significant factor that limits the availability ofstructural carbohydrate (i.e., cellulose and hemicellulose) to microbial flora of ruminant animals.Many chemical treatment methods have been investigated and most result in the production ofundesir ...

  7. Destruction of Aflatoxins in Grain Using Gaseous Ozone

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Mycotoxins are compounds produced by certain species of fungi which infect grains such as corn and peanuts. Among the most common and most toxic of these are the aflatoxins (AF), with AFB1 and AFG1 recognized as potent carcinogens in addition to their other negative effects. Contamination results in large economic losses at all levels of food production. Few effective means of treating contamin ...

  9. HAZARDOUS WASTES.

    SBC: Walm Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HAZARDOUS WASTE IN THE FORM OF UNUSED PESTICIDE MIXTURES IS OF SIGNIFICANT CONCERN. RECENTLY INTRODUCED CHEMICAL INJECTION GROUND SPRAY SYSTEMS DO AN ACCURATE JOB OF APPLYING CHEMICALS. RESEARCHERS ARE NOW ADAPTING THESE TECHNOLOGIES FOR USE IN AIRCRAFT APPLICATIONS. THE EQUIPMENT PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT WOULD SOLVE FOUR PROBLEMS AT ONCE WHICH ARE IMPORTANT TO AERIAL PESTICIDE APPLICATION: 1) INA ...
