  1. A 10 Kilowatt, Rankin Cycle Agricultural Waste to Energy Conversion Module Utilizing Ultra Micro Turbo-Alternators

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    In 2011, there were 60,000 dairy farms in the US. Of there, 56,600 had herds of fewer than 500 animals. Currently, manure digester installations are only considered economical for herds of at least 500 animals. There require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger. The need exists for a smaller waste to energy conversion approach for implementation on small farms were ...

  2. Automated Monitoring of Wastewater Treatment Efficiency

    SBC: Verrix, LLC            Topic: D

    Wastewater treatments minimize transmission of pathogens, and are required by the EPA with established treatment and monitoring requirements. The efficiency of treatment processes is determined by measuring the inactivation of indicator organisms (e.g., fecal coliforms) with culture-based techniques. Recently, Clostridium perfringens spores have been identified as excellent indicator organisms t ...

  3. 3D Breast Tissue Co-cultures for Screening Mammary Carcinogens

    SBC: REGENEMED, INC.            Topic: B

    Breast cancer is not a disease of individual cells, but principally a failure of cells and tissues to communicate properly. One communication mechanism that is frequently disrupted in breast cancer involves the hormone estrogen. Despite recognition that exposure to compounds with estrogenic activity can promote breast cancer formation and progression, no good mechanistic explanation presently ex ...

  4. Development of Pathway Selective Cells and Assays for Sensitive Detection of Environmental Toxicants via High Throughput Label-free Cell Based Screening

    SBC: ACEA Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: B

    Environmental pollutants that impact critical biological pathways involved in human development and physiology can have unpredictable effect on health. Among these critical pathways, various receptor tyrosine kinases, sonic hedgehog, transforming growth factor beta, Notch and WNT are known or suspected mediators of the effect of numerous environmental toxicants produced during manufacturing, pres ...

  5. Handheld Microfluidic Device for Cyanobacteria Toxin Detection and Monitoring

    SBC: HJ Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: A

    HJ Science & Technology, Inc. proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of an integrated“lab-on-a-chip” technology capable of rapid and real time detection and identification of a variety of toxins in drinking water, particularly microcystins and other toxins produced by cyanobacteria. During blooms, the toxins in freshwater become concentrated enough to be a serious concern for ahuman health, ...

  6. High-Power Vertical-Junction Field-Effect Transistors Fabricated on Low-Dislocation-Density GaN by Epitaxial Lift-Off

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: 1

    In this program, we will develop a breakthrough technology that will enable wafer-scale epitaxial lift-off (ELO) of GaN power device heterostructures from low-dislocation-density bulk GaN substrates. This technology will be used to provide a low-cost vertical junction field effect transistors (VJFETs) with high breakdown voltage (greater than 1,200 V) and high current capability (greater than 100 ...

  10. Soy-Capped Polycarbonate Dendrimers for Tough, Sustainable Water Based Wood Coatings

    SBC: INSTRUMENTAL POLYMER TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: B

    The environmental impact of wood coatings has become a pressing issue as the manufacturing of wooden products such as flooring, cabinetry, furniture and doors is moving back to the United States amidst rising labor costs overseas. For the last thirty years the bulk of these products have been painted in countries with lax environmental regulations, allowing the use of inexpensive but environmenta ...
