  4. Biofueled Thermoelectric Cookstove

    SBC: HI-Z TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 15NCER02

    Over 50 million Indian households cook on a bio-mass fire and have unreliable or no electricity but are anxious to purchase an affordable power stove which will provide on-demand power and lighting to their homes. Annually, projected sales of the power stove could save sixteen million trees, reduce cooking fire particulates by 90%, reduce the two million premature deaths caused from indoor air pol ...

  5. High-Efficiency Nutrient Removal and Recovery for Achieving Low Regulatory Limits

    SBC: MICROVI BIOTECH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER05

    Discharge of nutrients (e.g. phosphorus and ammonia) to surface waters can cause eutrophication and the formation of toxic algal blooms, threatening human health and the environment. However, current phosphorus treatment technologies such as chemical precipitation and conventional biological systems can be costly and ineffective to reliably achieve impending effluent regulatory limits of

  6. Low-Cost Biological Solution for Reducing Carbon Pollution in Chemical Manufacturing

    SBC: INDUSTRIAL MICROBES, INC.            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Industrial Microbes is developing a green fermentation platform to replace carbon-emitting petrochemical production with newer methods that build chemicals out of methane and carbon dioxide.Chemical production is a major source of carbon pollution, responsible for 18% of direct industrialemissions. Our innovation is an engineered microbe that can consume carbon dioxide and methane and produce a ch ...

  7. Exploiting Microbiome and Synthetic Biology to Discover and Produce Naturally Occurring Antibiotics

    SBC: Radiant Genomics, Inc.            Topic: CBD152004

    In this proposal, we aim to validate the human gut microbiome and arid soil as a source of antibiotic natural products (NPs ) by using ametagenomic NP discovery platform developed at Radiant Genomics. Recent studies suggest that the genomes of uncultivated microorganisms,like their cultivated counterparts, encode an enormous number of NPs. Gaining systematic access to NPs using standard, cultivati ...

  8. Producing Novel Biosynthetic Therapeutics from Extreme Microbiomes

    SBC: IXPRESSGENES, INC.            Topic: CBD152004

    Environmental DNA from three extreme samples will be isolated, cloned into a fosmid library (5760 clones) for sequencing. The sequencing datawill cover ~ 240 Megabases and will be assembled into contigs long enough (~ 40 Kilobases) to represent potential biosynthetic gene clusters(BGCs). This data will be compared to BGC databases looking for homology to antibiotic targets of DoD interest and with ...

  9. Signal Processing for Layered Sensing

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: CBD152006

    As a foundational component of a Layered Sensing architecture, Toyon proposes to develop a Multi-Modal Fusion Module (M2FM) capable ofconfirming detections from Chemical, Biological and Radiological (CBR) sensing networks by fusing together information from other (non-CBR)sensors. The module will provide information to assist operators in confirming an initial CBR detection or rejecting it as a fa ...

  10. Post-detonation Debris Analysis by Micro-ESR Spectroscopy for the Advancement of the Nuclear Forensics Timeline

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143009

    Electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy is a widely used forensic technique to study post-nuclear debris fields, radiation-induced damage in solids and many other phenomena surrounding the interaction of radioactivity with solid matter. ESR spectroscopy is also used to analyze dust, smoke and other gaseous samples. Our Micro-ESR technology has the benefit of being an extremely robust, lightweig ...
