  2. Reproductive Confinement of Channel Catfish with Transgenic Sterilization

    SBC: Aqua Bounty Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Transgenic, domestic, interspecific hybrid and exotic fish all have great potential for benefiting both aquaculture and recreational fishing. Many of these fish, especially transgenics, are not used because of ecological concerns. The ultimate solution to these biodiversity, genetic biodiversity and environmental risk issues for application of these fish is transgenic steril ...

  3. Encapsulated Bentonite for Abandoned Well Sealing

    SBC: BEN-CAP, LLC            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: What can be done to ensure a high level of water quality for wildlife, agriculture, and humans around the world? More and more wells, whether they are for water, oil and gas, or coal-bed methane, are deeper than ever and are at risk from surface pollution and inter-aquifer mixing. Cement, long known as the only alternative, has been shown to have serious drawbacks. This prop ...

  4. Commercialization of Versazyme, A Keratinase Product, for Use in Poultry Food


    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The small intestine of the newly hatched chick and is immature and undergoes significant morphological, biochemical and physiological changes during the first 10 days post hatch. After this initial period, the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of the young monogastric animals becomes more capable of digesting and utilizing more nutrients. Chicks and poults during the first few da ...

  5. SiC-Microhotplate ConductometricSensor Array for NOx, CO, and Hydrocarbon Monitoring of Hot Engine Emissions

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    As the number of mobile source emissions in the United States increases, it is necessary to further reduce the emission of CO, NOx, and hydrocarbons from such sources to provide safe air quality, especially in urban environments. Significant reductions in pollution emissions can be achieved using advanced engine controls based on real-time measurements of CO, NOx, and hydrocarbon concentrations i ...

  6. Rapid and Reliable Detection of Vesicular Stomatitis Virus

    SBC: CC Technology            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) affects a wide range of agriculturally important animals. The economic impact of an outbreak of VSV can be quite large due to its effect on animals, but more importantly, because at early stages of the disease, it is nearly indistinguishable from foot and mouth disease virus (FMD). Reliable detection of VSV is complicated by the existence of ...

  7. Abrasion-Resistant Inorganic Membranes for Sugar Processing

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The sugar industry produces over 100 million tons of sugar each year. This large industry has been intrigued by the use of membranes to enhance the efficiency of production for many decades but membranes that have the correct combination of performance and cost have not yet been developed for consideration in large scale installations. High temperature, high viscosity, and m ...

  8. Low-Cost Zeolite Membrane Modules for Solvent Dehydration

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A number of very high-volume liquid chemicals form azeotropes with water and can be dehydrated to required purity levels only through the use of entrainers or drying agents. The handling and disposal of these additional chemicals present significant environmental risks. Recently, membrane pervaporation using both polymeric and inorganic membrane modules has been commercialized as a method to deh ...

  9. An Ultralight Autonomous Robot for Weed Control

    SBC: PARALLEL SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The effective control of weeds is one of the most important and costly issues in commercial agriculture. Practically all weed control is accomplished by mechanical means (cultivation) or broadcast spraying of herbicides. Global positioning systems, remote sensing and variable-rate technology have been used for site-specific herbicide application. The anticipated results will ...

  10. Wastewater Treatment by Pulsed Electric Field Processing


    Combined sewage outflows (CSOs) are a major contributor to water pollution in the United States. The impact of peak stormwater loads on sewage treatment plants leads to the discharge of significant amounts (1.26 billion gallons) of untreated sewage each year. The bacterial load represented by this discharge directly contributed to more than 2,200 beach closings in the year 2000, numerous closing ...
