  1. A New Passive Technique to Monitor, and Discover, Agricultural Groundwater Resources

    SBC: Industrial Imaging Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    World-wide agricultural water resources are strained by drought, over pumping, contamination, and competition for use. We are proposing an inexpensive method to explore for new water resources and continuously monitor the level, and perhaps contamination, of existing heavily used aquifers. What we are proposing is an electromagnetic method of geophysical exploration that can be used to map the ele ...

  2. Bio-Based Primary Plasticizer for PVC Plastic

    SBC: Chemical Business Development Consulting, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The market for plasticizers is as much as 5 billion pounds world wide basis, 2 billion USA alone. Epoxidized Soybean Oil (ESO) represents 0.5 billion of the world wide market of these plasticizers, 0.15 billion USA. Pthalates are under investigation for toxicity. ESO (epoxidized soybean oil)plasticizers can not be increased in current formulations as ESO exudes when at levels beyond 5-7%. Develop ...

  3. Chemical-Resistant Glass Fiber Reinforced Composites Incorporating Bio-Based Ion Exchangers Derived from Agricultural Residues and Starches

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Gass fiber composites suffer from early deterioration when exposed to alkaline environments. This project incorporates bio-based ion exchangers into the polymer matrix of glass fiber composites in order to neutralize aggressive chemicals and thus enhance the chemical resistance of composites.

  4. Development of a Vaccine for the Prevention of Clostridium Botulinum Type C in Equine and Bovine Species

    SBC: Neogen Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Horses and cattle are susceptible to the neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum Type C, one of the types of botulism. The purpose of this project is to develop a toxoid to protect horses and cattle (particularly dairy cattle) against this disease.

  5. Improved Quality Soy-oil Based Biodiesel Fuel

    SBC: BioPlastic Polymers and Composites, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The benefits of biodiesel have been well documented, however, problems related to fuel quality, filter plugging, injector failure, material compatibility, and fuel economy still remain and must be resolved before wide spread use of biodiesel can be addressed. Some of these problems are inter-related, but all are inherent to the composition of the biodiesel. In particular, the presence of double bo ...

  6. Magneto-Thermal MRAM


    Magneto-Thermal MRAM uses both heat and magnetic field (current)to overcome thermal instabilities of very small memory cells. Self-generated heat in the cell raises the temperature of magnetic material in the cell above the exchange ordering temperature of the magnetic material (either ferromagnetic or anti-ferromagnetic). Magneto-Thermal MRAM is compatible with advances in photolithography down t ...

  7. WirlWind (WIReLess area INciDent network)


    Problems with current radio based incident communications systems include: only VHF or UHF radio technology is used, limited number and range of frequencies, interagency cooperation hampered by incompatible frequencies and devices, terrain causes line-of-site and visibility problems for communications, potential for single point failures, geared towards voice capability, few data transmit/receive ...
