  1. Enhanced Membranes for Sweetening of Manure based BioGas

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    Every year over 1 billion tons of fresh animal manure is produced in US and it raises pollution concerns. "Anaerobic digestion" is an environmental friendly and energy efficient way to dispose animal manure. Animal manure is converted to biogas and digestate through this process. The animal manure digestate has a much less pollution potential than untreated animal manure and can be used as a chemi ...

  4. Low Cost Innovative Greener/Safer Process for Converting Cellulose to Glucose

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 81

    The current dependence of the United States on fossil fuels has sparked enormous interest in the development of biomaterials derived from biomass, specifically cellulosic biomaterials. Cellulosic biomaterials are a carbon neutral, renewable resource, and their use could drastically curtail total carbon dioxide emissions while also reducing U.S. dependence on fossil fuels. Biofuels is one example o ...

  5. Fast Vacuum Isolation Valve for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA143007

    Nuclear weapons effects (NWE) testing and other experiments conducted with plasma radiation sources require that test articles be exposed to radiation but protected from fast moving debris generated by a high power source event. Solid barriers or membranes are unacceptable because they attenuate the desired radiation, and physical shutters of reasonable size and complexity have difficulty reaching ...

  7. MICROWAVE MEASUREMENT OF WOOD MOISTURE PROFILE DURING KILN DRYING

    SBC: Dedicated Electronics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MANY OF THE DEFECTS THAT APPEAR IN WOOD DURING DRYING OR DURING MATCHINING ORIGINATE FROM SHRINKAGE DURING DRYING AND FROM ITS ASSOCIATED STRESSES. THE ABILITY TO SENSE SHRINKAGE AND STRESSES MAY ALLOW SUCH DEFECTS TO BE AVOIDED NY CAREFUL CONTROL OF TEMPERATURE, HUMIDITY, AND AIRFLOW CONDITIONS WITHIN THE KILN. THIS COULD ULTIMATELY RESULT IN IMPROVED WOOD QUALITY AND INCREASED LUMBER YIELD BY RE ...
