  1. Development of Novel Proteins to Enhance Cellulose Deconstruction for Ethanol Production

    SBC: Expansyn Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Fuels derived from cellulosic biomass offer an alternative to conventional energy sources that supports national economic growth, national energy security, and environmental goals. In the 2007 State of the Union address, President Bush called for 35 billion gallons of alternative fuel use in the United States by 2017, which would replace 20 percent of the nation¿s petroleum consumption. Cellulosi ...

  2. An Innovative Transport Membrane Condenser for Water Recovery from Flue Gas and Its Reuse

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Although water recycle and reuse is considered good environmental practice, its implementation is highly dependent upon the economics and hence can be challenging to implement. An example is the recovery of low quality heat as water condensate from industrial flue gases. In this case, tremendous quantities of energy and water are lost out the stack in the US today, since no conventional condensing ...

  5. High Power, Mid-Infrared Fiber Supercontinuum Light Source

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Modern supercontinuum (SC) light sources are generated by non-linear interactions between ultrashort pulse lasers and optical fibers. Output in near-ultraviolet to near-infrared wavelength ranges has been demonstrated. These light sources have high brightness and are spatially coherent. Recently, output to 4.5 µm was achieved using fluoride glass fibers; optical absorption by the fiber prevents l ...

  6. Innovative Residential Fire Sensor

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences proposes development of residential fire sensing systems based on low cost optical imaging sensors combined with newly introduced highly miniaturized, low power CO sensors. Sensor modules will also include temperature sensors. The modules will be part of a low power wireless network. Each module will be about ½ the size of a business card, a few mm thick, and will operate for ...

  7. A Microcalorimeter Alpha Spectrometer for Analysis of Nuclear Material

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    A key factor of international efforts to identify and suppress the supply of and demand for nuclear materials, and thereby to deter potential traffickers, is the ability to accurately identify contradicted material and ultimately to trace it back to its origin. Alpha particle spectroscopy is widely used in nuclear forensics to assay trace quantities of sensitive nuclear materials, but the limited ...

  8. Development of Antibodies for the Detection of the Toxin Anatoxin-by Immunoassay

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Fresh water cyanobacteria harmful algal blooms (HAB), have potentially many adverse environmental impacts. For instance, bloom mats of filamentous algae are believed to reduce ambient light levels below those required for submerged aquatic vegetation to survive. Blue-green algae, form blooms that make a surface scum and have been associated with low levels of dissolved oxygen that can be lethal ...

  9. Advanced Slagging Gasifier for Biomas Wastes

    SBC: Advanced Fibers & Powders, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Gasification provides a potential means of deriving clean energy from biomass waste materials. One of the greatest obstacles to the effective gasification of animal and farm waste is the slagging behavior of the residual ash at temperatures that yield the most efficient gasification performance. Many wastes are particularly problematic for dry ash gasification processes, especially waste from co ...

  10. Fine and Course Particulate Continuous Emissions Monitoring

    SBC: Baldwin Environmental, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Baldwin Environmental Inc. (BEI) successfully completed an SBIR Phase I project that demonstrated the feasibility of designing and producing a Fine and Coarse Particulate Monitoring System (FCPMCEMS). This system simultaneously measures and reports mass concentrations of fine and coarse particulate material using Atmospheric Dispersion Simulation and Beta Attenuation Monitoring (BAM). A design a ...
