  2. Integrated Power-Microclimate Cooling System for the Soldier

    SBC: CUBE Technology            Topic: A08116

    This program is expected to result in a combined, miniature Power/Microclimate cooling system for the soldier. The compact thermoelectric generator system will create significant power and have higher energy density than lithium technology batteries over extended missions. The highly integrated, and innovative microclimate cooler will result in a gravity-independent cooling system with high coef ...

  4. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 06NCERP1

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low-level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real-time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X-ray fluorescence inst ...

  5. Investigation of Solvent Toxicity in Bacterial Strains Involved in Butanol Production

    SBC: Integrated Genomics, Inc.            Topic: 06NCERD1

    Reduction in dependency on imported petroleum and the quest to identify renewable energy sources has led to a search for innovative biofuels derived from renewable biomass, which promise long-term reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Butanol is one possible biofuel. It is an industrial fuel that can be produced from crops using acetone-butanol (AB) fermentation by butanolagenic microbes, such a ...

  6. Rapid Indicator for Pollution

    SBC: CEDAR Systems            Topic: N/A

    CEDAR Systems responds to the EPAs need for an inexpensive, convenient and rapid analytical method for the detection of pollution indicators for such as E. coli and enterococci in beach and other recreational waters as a means of identifying risk before exposure has taken place. Currently available tests are far from ideal in that they all require significant incubation periods (i.e. 18+ hours) t ...

  10. L-(+) Lactic Acid Production from Biodiesel Waste Using Pelletized Fungal Fermentation

    SBC: Omnilane, Inc.            Topic: H

    "With the rapid growth of biodiesel industry, the production of crude glycerol as one of major biodiesel byproducts has been dramatically increased. Fully utilizing such a large quantity of crude glycerol is critical to the sustainability of biodiesel industry. Lactic acid is an important industrial chemical that is widely used as a food additive for flavoring and preservative, a moistener in co ...
