  2. Preventing Bone Loss and Weight Gain with Combinations of Vitamin D and Phytochemicals

    SBC: Aptotec, Inc.            Topic: 85

    Obesity and osteoporosis are major public health concerns due to their prevalence in our increasingly sedentary and aging society. In the U.S. today, an estimated 55% of people 50 and older are at risk for developing osteoporosis. Because as much as 20% of bone mass can be lost in the first five to seven years following menopause, osteoporosis is a major health issue for aging women. In 2005, oste ...

  3. Improved Strategies for Elevated Vermicomposting Systems

    SBC: SKOLEX BIOTECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 84

    The agricultural community's relationship with urban centers has always been complicated and highly dynamic. Recent US Census data indicates that "agricultural America" is growing the fastest at the transition zones near urban areas. At the same time there is strong interest by those living in cities and suburbs to participate in food production and farming. In conjunction with thes ...

  4. Enhancing Biosynthesis of Biofuels from Cellulosic Biomass

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    There continues to be a need for production of biofuels from agricultural sources. Butanol is a more attractive fuel than ethanol because it leads to better gas mileage, it achieves higher blends with gasoline than bioethanol, it has greater compatibility with existing fuel infrastructure, it is less volatile, it is more amenable to transport via pipeline due to low water absorption, there is no n ...

  5. Evaluating the Feasibility of Cultivating Yaupon Holly for its Food Value

    SBC: YAUPON Wellness Company, Inc            Topic: 812

    Project Summary/AbstractWith over a trillion cups of caffeinated beverages consumed each year, caffeine is arguably the world's most frequently consumed stimulant. Caffeine is widely used to enhance athletic performance, body composition, pain relief, and mental acuity. Naturally caffeinated beverages include coffee, black and green tea, cola, cocoa, guarana, yerba maté, and Yaupon tea. ...

  6. Reduced NOx/Hydrocarbon Emissions via Oxygen Enriched Lean Burn Engines

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Lean burn spark engines are a promising technique to further reduce both NOx and hydrocarbon/carbon monoxide (HC/CO) engine emissions. Higher lean burn levels improve HC/CO oxidation while simultaneously reducing NOx formation. The NOx reduction is due to cooler flame temperatures. While the lean burn limit (beyond which combustion is poor) restricts further emission reductions, the use of oxyg ...

  7. Enhanced Drying of Pipeline Ethanol

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: H

    There continues to be a need for low cost production and shipment of fuel-grade ethanol from agricultural sources. Ethanol from agricultural sources has many advantages including developing fuel independence and significantly reducing greenhouse gases. Also, bio-ethanol has significant value as an oxygenated and octane improver. Although ethanol from agricultural sources has many advantages, th ...

  8. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER2C

    To reach the end user, oil and gas production at the wellhead must be transmitted through the country and distributed to a wide range of customers. This logistical system requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities, product storage tanks and lots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermit ...

  9. Phytoremediation of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) via phytoextraction

    SBC: NUTTER & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 17NCER3A

    NAI has a strategy to identify plant species best suited for proof-of-concept testing for phytoremediation of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) via phytoextraction. Phytoextraction refers to the uptake and translocation of contaminants in the soil by plant roots into the aboveground portions of plants. Once the phytoextraction concepts are proven at the bench-scale (Phase I) and followed with succe ...

  10. Shadow Moire System for Large Area Substrate Thermal Deformation Measurement

    SBC: Electronic Packaging            Topic: N/A

    Electronic Packaging Services (EPS) proposes to develop a commercial instrument for the experimental measurement of out-of-plane thermal displacements for large area electronic substrates. The system will be based on shadow moire, a full-field non-contact optical technique. Phase stepping analysis, which convolutes multiple moire fringe images with fixed phase differences between them, extends t ...
