  1. Functional Chrome Coatings on Hard to Access, Internal Surfaces of Industrial Parts from an Environmentally Benign Trivalent Chromium Bath

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: B

    "Faraday Technology, Inc., with the guidance of our commercialization partner the Boeing Company, propose a drop-in-replacement chrome plating process that can coat complex, hard to access surfaces such as the interior of landing gear, using an environmentally benign trivalent chromium bath. The proposed green manufacturing process meets the stated EPA need by improving existing processes while u ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Enabling Electrostatic Painting of Automotive Polymers with Low Cost Carbon Nanofibers

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: 06NCERP1

    Applied Sciences, Inc. (ASI) investigated the use of inexpensive carbon nanofiber (CNF) to impart electrical conductivity to polymer systems to allow the use of electrostatic painting (ESP) techniques to paint these polymers in the same manner as metals without the need for a solvent- based primer coat. The production of polymer composites that can be electrostatically painted with no additional p ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. A Biomass Energy Process for Poultry Growing Operations

    SBC: Neathery Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 06NCERB4

    The U.S. poultry industry produces more than 45 billion pounds of poultry annually. A majority of this production is from concentrated animal feeding operations. In a modern poultry growing facility, small chicks are raised in several large “houses” that typically cover over 20,000 ft2. Starting with each grow-out period, fresh wood mulch bedding material is spread over the house fl ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Liquid Hydrocarbon Fuels from Biomass Materials

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT INC            Topic: 06NCERD3

    Nearly all of the liquid fuels used in internal combustion engines (gasoline and diesel) in the United States are made from fossil fuels. Two rapidly growing liquid biofuel alternatives are ethanol and biodiesel. However, both processes are limited to specific crop products (corn starch and soybean oil) that have higher market value. Bulk plant byproducts (e.g., food processing wastes, mash/mea ...
