  1. A LOW COST AUTOMATED PROCESS FOR RECOVERY OF RECYCLABLE PLASTIC AND GLASS CONTAINERS FROM SOLID WASTE

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE DISPOSAL OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE (MSW) IS A COSTLY PROBLEM FOR ALL MUNICIPALITIES. THE U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY HAS RECOMMENDED THAT SOURCE REDUCTION, RECYCLING, VOLUME REDUCTION, AND LANDFILLING BE APPLIED, IN THAT ORDER, IN THE TREATMENT OF MSW. RECYCLING HAS RECENTLY BECOME A MAJOR COMPONENT OF MUNICIPAL WASTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS. HIGH COSTS OF LABOR INTENSIVE CURBSIDE RECYCLIN ...

  3. A novel biomarker of infection in neutropenic cancer patients

    SBC: BIOPOWERTECH            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Early diagnosis of an infection in neutropenic cancer patients is critical for timely treatment But the diagnosis of an infection in these patients especially at an early stage can be very challenging Therefore there is a great need for sensitive biomarkers that can rapidly predict an infection and provide possible outcomes We have already reported that s ...

  4. A Novel Microfludic Device for Drug Toxicity Studies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD10103

    Current drug discovery and development programs are severely limited by the expensive animal trials and oversimplified in vitro models. Results obtained from the in vitro models are not predictive of in vivo toxicity owing to significant difference in testing from the in vivo physiological conditions. In this context, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel microfluidic device for quantitati ...

  5. A Novel Microfludic Device for Drug Toxicity Studies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD10103

    Current drug discovery and development efforts are severely limited by expensive animal trials and oversimplified in vitro models. Results obtained from in vitro models are not predictive of in vivo toxicity owing to significant difference from the in vivo physiological conditions. In this context, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel microfluidic device that reproduces the physiological ...

  6. A novel phosphodiesterase isozyme target and class of inhibitors for lung cancer

    SBC: ADT Pharmaceuticals, LLC            Topic: 102

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Lung cancer causes more deaths in men and women than any other cancer in the United States Late detection of disease and inability to effectively treat this malignancy with chemotherapy are the main reasons for low survival rates There is an urgent medical need to develop new molecularly targeted drugs for treating lung cancer although it has been challengin ...

  7. A Novel, Aerodynamics-augmented Continuous Ionization System for Electrostatic Collection of Bioaerosols

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD12107

    Safe and efficient air ionization and filtration technology compatible to biodefense applications is of paramount importance. Current ionization methods are energy-intensive, costly, prone to ozone generation, or inefficient, and consequently ill-suited for building protection applications. To overcome these issues, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel bioaerosol ionization and collection ...

  9. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is critical to detect the proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges facing this objective include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions (e.g., gamma rays) from common radioactive isotopes behind shielding, and (b) cost-effe ...

  10. A PROCESS FOR INCREASING THE AMOUNT AND QUALITY OF RECYCLED PLASTICS RESINS

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    EACH YEAR, AMERICANS DISPOSE OF AN ESTIMATED 29 BILLION POUNDS OF PLASTICS WHICH CONSUME UP TO 20% OF OUR NATION'S ANNUAL LANDFILL CAPACITY. RECENT ENVIRONMENTAL AND POLITICAL PRESSURES HAVE LED TO RAPID ESTABLISHMENT OF PLASTICS RECYCLING FACILITIES. LIMITED MARKETS FOR LOW QUALITY RECYCLED RESINS REQUIRE RECLAIMERS TO PRODUCE THE HIGHEST QUALITY RECYCLED RESINS IN ORDER TO COMPETE WITH VIRGIN RE ...
