  1. Micro-Bait Station Suzukii

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 812

    Spotted wing drosophila (SWD), Drosophila suzukii, is an aggressive, prolific, and polyphagous pest species of many crops, because they lay their eggs in healthy, unripened soft-skinned fruit,rendering them unmarketable. In August 2008, the first detection of SWD in the US caused great concern, as the fly was found infesting a variety of commercial fruits on the coast of California. The following ...

  4. Catalytic Production of Hydrocarbon from Biomass

    SBC: VISOLIS, INC            Topic: 88

    Conversion of biomass into useful fungible chemicals and fuels is a long-standing challenge. A key requirement of such processes is high efficiency of conversion for economic viability. Biomass derived sugars are highly oxygenated and need processing to remove to be converted into useful hydrocarbons.We propose an integrated bio-thermochemical platform for production of a specialty chemical, which ...
