  1. Methodology for Identification on High Value Biomass Feedstocks

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Up until the early twentieth century, several commodity chemicals were produced by the pyrolysis of hardwoods (e.g., methanol, acetic acid, acetone) or the extraction of softwoods (turpentine, terpenes, rosins, pitches, and tars). The expected long term increase in petroleum and natural gas prices will cause a gradual but steady return to biomass feedstocks over the next several decades. Other dri ...

  2. An Integrated Membrane-based Process Train for Reducing Costs of Ethanol Production

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Domestic ethanol production has grown substantially over the last 30 years due to a growth in national energy security concerns, more stringent Federal standards for vehicle emissions, and government agricultural incentives. The recently signed Federal energy legislation requires an increase in ethanol production to 7.5 billion gallons a year within the next 10 years. There is, however, a recogniz ...

  3. A New Technique for the Microbial Production of Xylitol Using Perfusion Culture

    SBC: Edenscapes, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The alternative sweetener, xylitol, occupies an interesting market niche. Xylitol, a sugar alcohol, is not metabolized via the insulin pathway, and thus has found use as a sweetener for diabetes patients. Yet xylitol has seen limited success in the marketplace. Its relatively high production costs and low availability have restricted its adoption as an alternative sweetener. We believe the introdu ...

  4. Development of Horticultural Containers from Anaerobically-digested Cow Manure

    SBC: Freund`s Farm, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Farms are faced with increasing problems managing manure from animal operations. Alternate innovative methods to deal with the handling and distribution of the manure solids materials and nutrients are needed to allow farms to economically comply with increased regulations. The purpose of this project is to further the development of a concept to utilize farm animal waste material in a manner that ...

  5. Blow Molded Bioproducts from Natural Plastics

    SBC: METABOLIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In order to diversify agriculture and enhance agriculture's role as a reliable supplier of raw materials to industry, new biobased products from agricultural materials need to be developed. This proposal will prove the technical feasibility of producing a biobased natural plastic resin which can be economically blow molded into useful products. Metabolix will use a combination of its proprietary h ...

  6. PLODIA INTERPUNCTELLA 6

    SBC: Microgenesys Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE INDIAN MEAL MOTH (IMM), PLODIA INTERPUNCTELLA (HUBNER), IS A STORED PRODUCTS PEST OF WORLDWIDE IMPORTANCE. DUE TO ITS INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE, IMM HAS BECOME DIFFICULT TO CON TROL. A GRANULOSIS VIRUS (PIGV) HAS SHOWN CONSIDERABLE POTENTIAL IN CONTROLLING IMM. MICROGENESYS,INC. PROPOSES TO CONDUCT EXPERIMENTS TO INVESTIGATE THE COMMERCIAL APPLICATION OF PIGV. THE MOST ECONOMICAL METHOD OF PIGV P ...

  8. Field-Portable Pesticide Residue Analyzer

    SBC: REAL-TIME ANALYZERS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Modern agriculture depends on pesticides to curb infestations and increase crop yield and to produce the quantity and quality of food demanded by today's society. However, many pesticides kill insects by attack of the central nervous system, and use of excessive concentrations pose a threat to human health. The EPA Office of Pesticide Programs is charged with setting tolerance levels (generally fr ...

  9. PREDICTIONS OF ROCK ANCHOR CAPACITIES BY UP-HOLE SEISMIC VELOCITY TECHNIQUES

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1986 Department of Agriculture
  10. Biofuel Production by Continuous Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol (ABE) Ferementation Coupled with Membrane Separation

    SBC: Porogen Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Production of butanol from biomass is hampered by low conversion rate and energy intensive product recovery. A new energy efficient technology that combines ABE fermentation with membrane based butanol product recovery will be developed.
