  1. Enhanced Performance of Agriculture Based Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids

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

    A. Water must be removed from biodegradable hydraulic fluids as they react with water and degrade insitu. B. Biodegradable hydraulic fluids for farm equipment provide a significant improvement over traditional petroleum based fluids due to decreased pollution. Increase the use and value of biodegradable hydraulic fluids by development of a membrane-based dewatering system.

  2. Agricultural Emissions Reduction Using Bio-Fuels with Membrane Supplied Nitrogen

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

    The use of biodiesel offers significant advantages with regards to the reduction of total harmful engine emissions with the exception of NOx. Biodiesel is a renewable resource and soybean oil is known to be economically viable as a biodiesel fuel. Recent studies from the Environmental Protection Agency have shown that soybean oil alone or blended with #2 diesel fuel results in a significant decrea ...

  3. The Use of Reproductive Technology to Improve Flounder Growth

    SBC: GREATBAY AQUACULTURE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Summer flounder (Paralichthys dentatus) are a valuable commercial and recreational species with a natural range from the southern Gulf of Maine to South Carolina. Landings of Atlantic flounders decreased from 90,000 mt in 1984 to 25,000 mt in 1994. Total annual landings of summer flounder peaked at 39.9 million pounds in 1979, but recently from 1990-2003 landings have been much lower, fluctuating ...

  4. Data Services Model to support effective management, analysis, and use of data.

    SBC: Center for Resource Management            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I R&D project will determine the feasability and commercial potential of a Data Services System designed to support district and school efforts to meet NCLB standards related to equity, continuous improvement, and accountability. The design incorporates: 1) a Data Use Framework representing a cohesive, innovative, and research-based approach for effectively structuring multiple uses of ...

  5. High-throughput Prediction of Compound Tissue Distribution

    SBC: ANALYTICAL BIOLOGICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The aim of the proposed research is to develop tools for the prediction of the distribution of drug compounds in the human body. There is currently no experimental high throughput screening (HTS) method for determining compound tissue distribution. A drug compound's propensity to be taken up by different tissues and organs affects whether it will reach its acti ...

  6. Improved Dehydration Process for Pharmaceutical Synthesis

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

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Most pharmaceutical synthesis involve condensation or dehydration reactions at some point in the process that generates water as a by-product. This water must be removed since (1) water is often not a desirable component of the finished product, (2) water limits conversion to final product, and (3) water generated slows the reaction rate. Many Pharmaceuticals h ...

  7. High Flux Blood Oxygenators

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

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Historically blood oxygenator technology either for short-term by-pass surgery or recently developed long-term strategies has been mass transfer limited by liquid side mass transfer fluid dynamics. Recent active mixing designs have led to systems which remove liquid side fluid limitations and have oxygen and carbon dioxide transport limited by membrane transpo ...

  8. Computer Adaptive Testing of Pediatric Self-care and Social Function

    SBC: CRECare LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this proposed project is to achieve a major transformation in the technology used to assess self-care and social disability in children and youth. Measurement and practical requirements to identify disability and evaluate individual progress across pediatric age-groups and care settings present a serious dilemma to current fixed-item instrument ...

  9. An Intelligent Physical Activity Monitor

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a recognized need for specific and reliable information regarding the dose/response relationships between physical activity and health for all segments of the population. New methods for assessing physical activity and energy expenditure (EE) in free-living populations are needed before a systematic evaluation and interpretation of these dose-response ...

  10. Hemodynamic Assessment of Renal Artery Disease

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this research is the development of a diagnostic methodology for predicting whether treatment of atherosclerotic stenoses in the renal artery will provide sufficient benefit in controlling hypertension or maintaining renal function to offset the risks of the treatment. Stenoses in the renal artery are comparatively common, yet prior studies ...
