  1. Small Scale Ethanol Drying

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

    This program exceeded all key milestones. Using cellulose Waste, CMS demonstrated novel ethanol drying membranes via small scale dephlegmation process that yields fuel grade ethanol (FGE) at a lower cost than large switch grass ethanol plants. This success yields positive value for cellulose waste. We achieved targeted EPA goals of developing low cost environmentally friendly systems to enhance re ...

  3. Automated Biological Sample Concentration and Detection System

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T022

    ANP Technologies proposes to integrate a commercially available air sample concentrator from ICx MesoSystems with our automated detection instrument that uses the NIDS® multiplexed assays and NIDS® Auto-Reader (AR) device. A trigger device may also be incorporated into the final system, which might better enable the system to serve as a remote monitor of air streams. The proposed effort will b ...

  4. High Sensitivity Rugged Array Detectors for Field Deployed Instruments: Low-Light Level Camera for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Ram

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A06065

    Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and Raman spectroscopy are developing rapidly for chemical and biochemical sensing applications. There is an urgent need for high-sensitivity detectors so as to minimize sample quantity and maximize detection range from the source. In most field-deployable spectrometers, a photo-detector array is used for analyzing the spectral contents. The sensitivitie ...

  5. A COW-SIDE BLOOD TEST FOR PREGNANCY USING PREGNANCY-SPECIFIC PROTEIN B (PSPB)

    SBC: BIOTRACKING, LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO PROVIDE A FIELD TEST KIT FOR DETECTING PREGNANCY IN CATTLE BY A BLOOD TEST. THE GOALS OF THE PHASE I PROJECT ARE 1) TO DEVELOP THE KIT AND 2) TO TEST THE KIT ON A LIMITED NUMBER OF CATTLE. THE TEST WILL BE BASED ON PRESENCE OF PLACENTAL DERIVED PREGNANCY-SPECIFIC PROTEIN B (PSPB) IN MATERNAL BLOOD. THE TEST WILL BE A ONE-STEP PROCEDURE IN WHICH SERUM (OR PERH ...

  6. QUANTIFICATION OF RESISTANCE OF IHN VIRUS IN RAINBOW, CUTTHROAT, AND HYBRID TROUT

    SBC: Blue Lakes Trout Farm Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AQUACULTURE PRODUCTION OF SALMONIDS, PARTICULARLY INTENSIVELY CULTURED RAINBOW TROUT, IS SEVERLY IMPACTED BY INFECTIOUS HEMATOPOIETIC NECROSIS (IHN), A RHABDOVIRAL DISEASE. DESPITE CONSIDERABLE EFFORTS TO MANAGE THE DISEASE, NO APPROVED OR ACCEPTED CONTROL MEASURES ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE COMMERCIAL INDUSTRY. WE PROPOSE TO EXAMINE THE INTER- AND INTRO-SPECIFIC GENETIC VARIATION PRESENT IN RAINBOW AN ...

  7. USE OF ACTIONOMYCETES AS BIOCONTROL AGENTS IN FORESTRY

    SBC: Innovative BioSystems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FUNGI ARE THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF TREE DISEASES. IN FORESTRY, FUNGAL DISEASE ARE BEST CONTROLLED IN THE NURSERY OR GREENHOUSE, AND BIOCONTROL AGENTS ARE PREFERRED OVER CHEMICAL FUNGICIDES. THE NATURALLY OCCURRING ACTINOMYCETES ARE THE MOST PROMISING BIOCONTROL AGENTS BECAUSE OF THEIR ABILITY TO PRODUCE A WIDE RANGE OF ANTIBIOTICS WITHIN THE THIZOSPHERE. THIS RESEARCH WILL COLLECT FOREST ACTINOMYC ...

  8. ADVANCED WATER RESOURCE MANAGEMENT USING AUTOMATED IRRIGATION AND REMOTE SENSING

    SBC: Precision Irrigation Control            Topic: N/A

    SITE SPECIFIC CROP MANAGEMENT (SSCM) IS THE SOLUTION TO MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS CAUSED BY SPATIAL VARIABILITY WITHIN A FIELD. IN IRRIGATED AGRICULTURE, SPATIAL VARIABILITY CONTRIBUTES TO SUBOPTIMUM MANAGEMENT RESULTING IN INEFFICIENT WATER AND CHEMICAL USE AND CONTAMINATION OF SURFACE AND GROUNDWATER SUPPLIES. AN AUTOMATED CONTROL SYSTEM FOR CENTER-PIVOT IRRIGATION MACHINES HAS BEEN DEVELOPED WHICH EN ...

  9. Embedded UV Combustion Sensor

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower proposes to develop gallium phosphide (GaP) ultraviolet (UV) sensors for engine combustion control. The UV spectra from the free radial combustion components correlates with combustion effectivity in terms of predetonation, and provides a real time basis for central control of excess air ratio, internal combustion temperatures, and other fuel injector parameters. A system for the engine ...

  10. Oxygen Enriching Membranes for Advanced Marine Internal Combustion Engines

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

    Computer and engine studies demonstrated a 100% increase in diesel engine power with the use of 31% oxygen enriched air (OEA) versus standard 21% oxygen air. Additional benefits from OEA include: (1) improved fuel efficiency, (2) compatible with lower grade (volatility) fuels, (3) reduced CO and hydrocarbon emissions, (4) enhanced lean burn capability, (5) smoother less noisy operation, (6) better ...
