  3. Improved Fruit Juice Concentration Process

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

    Concentration of fruit juices is a valuable unit operation. The current preferred method of juice concentration is triple effect evaporation. This technique cannot concentrate to high (75%) solids content without (1) developing a burnt taste to the sugar content and (2) driving off the low molecular weight hydrocarbons that provide most of the flavor and aroma difference between fresh and frozen c ...

  6. A Comprehensive Fungicide Application Decision Support System for Control of White Mold

    SBC: Meridian Environmental Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, or white mold, is a resilient and devastating disease that has emerged as a significant threat to many of the broadleaf crops of the United States. Sclerotinia is known to infect about 408 species of plants. It has been estimated to cause hundreds of millions of dollars in losses annually to the United States' dry edible bean, sunflower, canola, and soybean crops. The dis ...

  8. Modification of Highly Active Xylanase by Directed Evolution

    SBC: rPeptide            Topic: N/A

    An Orpinomyces xylanase gene (XynA) has been cloned, sequenced, and overexpressed in a readily fermentable production host (E. coli). Fermentation and down-stream processing have been established. XynA is most active and stable at temperatures of 50/o/C to 60/o/C and at a pH ranging from 5.8 and 7.5. The enzyme works well for industrial bleaching of paper pulp when the temperature and pH are withi ...

  9. Lightweight, Rugged, Portable Fuel Cell

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "To operate sensors to verify future arms control agreements, inspectors will need a portable power source. The power source must be rugged, lightweight, reliable, adaptable to a variety of different sensor applications with different current/voltagerequirements, and simple to refuel in the field. We propose to develop a polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cell that is ideal for arms control ...
