  6. Barley Biorefinery: Protein Concentrates and BioBased Chemicals

    SBC: MONTANA BIOAGRICULTURE INC.            Topic: 86

    The phase II project is a key element in a larger project to develop value added agricultural manufacturing in rural communities. In phase 1 MBAI demonstrated feasibility of producing multiple high value co-products in a barley biorefinery.The current process uses barley to produce barley protein concentrate, BPC, with ethanol as a co-product. BPC has valuable markets as a protein ingredient in aq ...

  7. Novel Composite for High Performance Thermal Interface Material

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: N171081

    Navy operational needs dictate that thermal interface materials (TIMs) have high thermal conductance, high dielectric strength, form non-permanent bonds, and be resilient to vibration and abrasion. Available TIMs each satisfy a portion of these requirements, but not all of them.Glacigen Materials will develop a new class of TIM by creating a novel composite material. This material will be embodied ...

  8. Intelligent Mapping of the Farm Using Low-Cost, GPS-Enabled Cameras During Existing Farm Activities

    SBC: NWB SENSORS INC.            Topic: 812

    With the advent of precision agriculture, the way we farm is changing. Technologies exist to add precision to all aspects of the farm. Through "mapping the farm," precision management strategies can be implemented such as: targeted herbicide application, targeted soil management, improved yield predictions, improved management of water, and other farm resources. These practices all require informa ...
