  1. Production of a Zero Calorie Sweetener L-arabinose from Biomass D-Xylose by an Enzyme Cocktail

    SBC: Cell-free Bioinnovation Inc.            Topic: 13a

    A new high-value product zero calorie sweetener L-arabinose has been identified because it may be produced from the D-xylose-rich aqueous biomass intermediate stream at low costs. L-arabinose is an FDA approved healthy sweetener with dual functions as a sucrase inhibitor and a prebiotic, but its current high price ($30/kg) prevents wide use. The co-production of high-value products such as L-ara ...

  2. SELECT: Secure and Lightweight Computing Environment for HPC systems

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 03a

    The increased accessibility via remote login, along with steadily growing numbers of HPC users and projects, poses a challenging question for HPC system management: How to secure HPC systems and protect the data inside these systems? There are several challenging issues that prevent the direct deployment of existing personal computer or cloud security tools in HPC systems: 1) The overhead introduc ...

  3. Single-shot Picosecond Temporal Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 07a

    Transmission electron microscopy is one of the primary tools for biological and materials characterization and has many important research applications. However, there is an overarching need to simultaneously improve both its spatial and temporal resolutions, beyond currently available technology, to study physical processes near atomic scales. Technical Approach RadiaBeam Technologies and UCLA pr ...

  4. Novel Process for Biomass Conversion to Methyl Butanols

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 18e

    As the world population increases and global GDP rises, the demand for energy is projected to increase dramatically. Fossil fuels are currently a leading energy source, approximately 50% of which is imported from foreign sources. A domestically produced, renewable energy source is needed to ensure the energy security of the United States. One source of domestic potential energy currently under- ...

  5. Comprehensive Time-Resolved Molecular Speciation Of Gaseous And Particulate Organic Constituents In The Atmosphere

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 17d

    Organic chemicals comprise the dominant fraction of particulates found in atmospheric aerosols, and the largest proportions of these are secondary products formed in the atmosphere from oxidation of volatile organic compounds. Often these chemical transformations result from complex pathways involving species from different sources. To understand these processes, we need to be able to trace the ...

  6. Energy-Recovery Linacs for Commercial Radioisotope Production

    SBC: MUPLUS INC            Topic: 26a

    Most radioisotopes are produced by nuclear reactors or positive ion accelerators, which are expensive to construct and to operate. Photonuclear reactions using bremsstrahlung photon beams from less-expensive electron linacs can generate isotopes of critical interest, but much of the beam energy in a conventional electron linac is dumped, making unwanted radioactivation. GENERAL STATEMENT OF HOW T ...

  7. Developing Robust all-Solid-State Li Battery with a Ceramic Electrolyte and Interfacially Engineered Lithium Metal Anode

    SBC: American Lithium Energy Corp.            Topic: 17a

    The objective of the proposed project is to develop the next generation of the low cost, high energy and high power solid state rechargeable lithium battery using a low cost enabling solid state electrolyte and protected lithium metal electrode developed by University of California in San Diego for use in the plug-in hybrid vehicle and electric vehicle. The advantages of the proposed solid state ...

  8. GRAVITY GRADIOMETER-BASED NON-INVASIVE REACTOR SYSTEM for COOLANT INVENTORY MONITORING

    SBC: INFORMATION SYSTEMS LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: 32k

    The reactor vessel coolant level is currently measured primarily by differential pressure DP) and by heated junction thermocouple HTJC) probes. The DP gauge measures only collapsed water level and not two-phase level, while the HJTC probe indicates whether or not the water level has reached the elevation of a specific probe. The HJTC probes are typically located at discrete intervals so the measur ...

  9. Algal Bioflocculation for Solid-Liquid Separation

    SBC: Microbio Engineering, Inc            Topic: 12c

    Algae production in conjunction with wastewater treatment is a low-cost path to algae biofuels. Whole biomass is available for conversion to biofuel because algae biomass co-product sales are not required for good economics. Instead, added revenue is derived from wastewater treatment. Existing wastewater treatment pond facilities covering hundreds of acres are the only producers of microalgae ap ...

  10. Pressurized Gas Beam Monitor for Extremely High Intensities

    SBC: MUPLUS INC            Topic: 31e

    Intense neutrino beam facilities for fundamental physics research, e.g. LBNF at Fermilab, T2K at KEK, and LBNO at CERN, require hadron monitors to diagnose primary and secondary beam qualities. Existing beam monitors based on ionization chambers are not robust in the high-radiation environment vicinity of MW-class secondary particle production targets. A novel pressurized ga ...
