  1. Low Cost Fuel Grade Ethanol

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

    There continues to be need for production of fuel grade ethanol (FGE) from biomass. This has many advantages including: development of fuel independence; zero net greenhouse gas emissions; strengthen U.S. agricultural base; and excellent replacement for MTBE as oxygenate. CMS has identified novel membrane systems and novel processes for reducing the cost for drying fuel grade ethanol (FGE). Limite ...

  2. Locking Mechanism for Rotating Seats

    SBC: Kustom Seating Unlimited Inc. (KSU)            Topic: 07FR1

    Research is proposed to develop a locking mechanism for intercity (Amtrak) rotating seats that can be retro-fit to existing seats. Current intercity rail seats, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), present a safety hazard to the riding public. Post accident investigations show that passenger rail seats were found to have been uncontrollably rotated even though current se ...

  3. Improving the Nutrition and Health of People with Developmental Disabilities via On-Line Program Dissemination

    SBC: MAINSTAY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    People with developmental disabilities (DD) experience poor nutrition, obesity, and other serious health problems at significantly higher rates than those in the general public. Fifty percent of people with DD are obese, double the rate for all other Americans; diabetes and hypertension are also serious problems for this population. There are many reasons for these elevated rates and previous atte ...

  4. Microscopic Traffic Flow Simulation Models- An Open Source Approach

    SBC: New Global Systems for Intelligent Transportation Management            Topic: 081FH5

    In the Open-source microscopic traffic simulation models project, a component based software framework is proposed to re-engineer CORISM data struture and CORISM interface. Under the architecture combing the innovative framework and the legacy CORISM, prototype of the open source traffic flow simulation models will be developed and demonstrated in the Phase I. In addition, areas identified by th ...

  5. GERM OIL RECOVERY IN DRY-GRIND ETHANOL PLANTS USING MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: PRAIRIE GOLD, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Non Technical Summary Ethanol production, estimated to be 6.5 billion gallons in January of 2008, is expanding at an astonishing rate and has placed huge demands on the profitability of ethanol plants. Prairie Gold's approach to alleviating the high cost of corn as a feedstock is to provide ethanol plants with additional coproducts such as corn oil using our GORME (Germ Oil Recovery with Membranes ...

  6. Utilize Extracted DDGs (Invive) for weed control and enhanced plant growth in horticultural applications.

    SBC: Summit Seed, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ethanol production is a rapidly growing industry in the United States where corn is the principal feedstock. Dried distiller grains (DDGs) are a co-product of the dry milling process, which currently accounts for approximately 75 percent of the domestic ethanol production. The production of DDGs in the U.S. was 7.3 million tons in 2004 and is expected to increase to over 16 million tons by 2012. D ...

  7. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 01FR1

    During Phase 1 of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for high speed freight truck intended for 70-ton, regular freight and bi-modal operation, at speeds up to 150 mph. The truck uses a rigid frame and an indpendent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Vehi ...

  8. N/A

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a growing trend towards the use of ¿Car-Less¿ technology, where a rail-car is not needed to transport road-haul trailers over rail: Trailers operate in the usual manner over highways, drive up to a rail yard and transform to ¿rail-mode¿ with relative ease. In rail mode, many ¿Car-Less¿ units use slightly modified 3-piece, 70-ton freight car trucks. These trucks are no ...

  9. Biobased, Monomers for Low Odor, Low VOC Architectural Latex Paints

    SBC: Southern Diversified Products, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project proposes the development of industrial agri-based oil monomers for the preparation of low odor, low VOC architectural latex coatings. The process for preparing acrylate and/or methacrylate monomers derived from castor oil and other industrial oils, such as soybean and linseed oils, involves an acrylate derivatization step. Monomers based on castor oil have been incorporated into latex ...
