  1. Biodegradable Lubricants from Renewable Feedstocks

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 88

    Current agriculture and off-road equipment requires the use of lubricants to ensure efficient operation of integral hydraulic and gear driven systems. The lubricants, either oils or greases, aid in reducing friction, dissipating heat, prevent oxidation, and seal of water and debris from vital areas of the equipment. During operation, equipment may have slight leaks or suffer catastrophic failures ...

  5. Cellulases for Biomass Conversion from the Transgenic Maize Production System

    SBC: Applied Biotechnology Institute, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The production of ethanol from lignocellulosic biomass can utilize large volumes of agricultural residues that are untapped today. Ethanol fuels burn cleanly, thus the use of ethanol for partial replacement of petroleum fuels will have a positive impact on the environment. The production of ethanol fuels from lignocellulosic biomass is ready to be developed into a viable ind ...

  6. Optimal Processing Conditions for Fruit Carbonation Systems

    SBC: FizzyFruit North America, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: This Phase I project will provide fundamental physiology and design information for the development of prototype fruit carbonators. The information gained from this research could then be used to develop first generation fruit carbonators, including home kitchen, restaurant, and retail-level carbonation equipment. The information could also be used as reference for further d ...

  7. A Hand-Held Based Sensor for Seafood Freshness Assessment

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The seafood industry is well aware of the need for maintaining product quality. It has traditionally relied on subjective sensory analysis through human sniff tests for the assessment of seafood freshness. However, experts are costly and too few in number. Alternative objective tests are expensive, complicated, time consuming, require toxic chemicals and destructive sampling ...

  9. Economic Feasibility of Manufacturing Fuel Pellets from Cotton By-Products

    SBC: Morton Delinting Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: In the past, cotton processing waste or byproducts have not been considered to have monetary value and were actually considered a liability. It was estimated that in the US, there were over 2.25 million tons of cotton byproducts being generated each year across the cotton belt. Last year Texas produced 4,153,866 bales of upland cotton. From the bales produced, there was an e ...

  10. Developing Optimum Design Factors and Operational Speeds for the Powered Roll Cotton Gin Stand

    SBC: PRT Marketing, LLC            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The USDA ARS has developed a new design for the cotton gin stand which holds substantial promise for commercial application and could benefit cotton producers. The Powered Roll Gin Stand is patented by the USDA, U.S. patent number 6,061,875. USDA tests have shown that this technology will result in a significant increase in pounds of lint per bale as well as improvements in ...
