  1. A Novel Sulfite Pretreatment Process (SPORL) for Efficient Biochemical Conversion of Woody Biomass to Bioethanol

    SBC: BIOPULPING INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: 81

    The SPORL process consists of reacting wood chips with a solution of calcium, magnesium, or sulfite at elevated temperatures for a short time, and then size reducing the resulting material using a disk refiner to generate fibrous substrate for subsequent saccharification and fermentation. The work is a collaborative effort between industry, university, and federal agencies. Forest biomass is a ver ...

  3. Ambient Processing and Nutritional Assessment of Reduced-Trypsin-Inhibitor & Low Oligosaccharide Soybean Products

    SBC: SCHILLINGER SEED INC            Topic: 85

    The current state of the art of soybean processing requires heat processing to eliminate anti-nutrition factors and make the protein available for digestion. The proposed research will investigate the opportunity to process a new soybean variety that has been traditionally bred (not genetically modified) to eliminate and/or significantly reduce these anti-nutrition factors. This research will inve ...

  7. Non-Thermal Sanitation by Atmospheric Pressure Plasma (SAPP)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: 85

    The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that foodborne diseases cause 76 million illnesses and 5,000 deaths in the United States each year. Among outbreaks for which the cause was determined, bacterial pathogens caused the largest percentage of outbreaks (55%) and the largest percentage of cases (55%). Currently treatment of produce is done with chlorinated water to reduce populations of pa ...
