  1. A novel enhanced-performance low-cost receiver and modified modulation scheme for WWVB

    SBC: XW, LLC dba Xtendwave            Topic: N/A

    The development of a greatly enhanced receiver for the WWVB signal is targeted, as well as possible modifications in the transmitted signal, which would both offer significant improvements in its effective coverage. This is to be achieved while allowing the replacement of the bulky, expensive, ferrite-based antenna, commonly used in the receiver, with a novel lower-cost antenna. Furthermore, the p ...

  2. A Biogas-Tolerant Engine-Generator for Advanced Agricultural Waste Management Systems

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 811

    Anaerobic digesters are capable of producing methane-rich biogas from animal manure and also offer the advantages of controlling odors, reducing pathogens, and minimizing the environmental impact of the waste. The biogas produced from anaerobic digesters is a renewable, distributed source of energy that can be used to generate electricity to offset power consumption on farms. Unfortunately, biogas ...

  4. Automated Modular Algae Cultivation For Aquaculture

    SBC: Culture Fuels, Inc.            Topic: 87

    There is compelling value to feeding live algae in fish hatcheries as the current survival rate oflarvae fed frozen paste is relatively low resulting in higher costs.However the complexity andcosts of existing photo-bioreactors and the logistical costs of shipping live material over distancesare barriers to the widespread deployment of live algae as feed.Culture BioSystems has successfully grown a ...

  5. Biomass-based Commodity Polymers from 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 88

    A shift from conventional petrochemical feedstocks towards biomass-based feedstocks is of both environmental and economical importance for the future production of commodity chemicals. 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) is a versatile biomass-derived platform compound that can be used to synthesize a broad range of chemicals currently derived from petroleum, such as furan-2,5-dicarboxylic acid (FDA). A ...

  6. Coproduction of Peptic Fragments and Biofuels from Citrus Processing Waste

    SBC: RENEWABLE SPIRITS LLC            Topic: 88

    Pectin is, after cellulose, the second most abundant polymer on earth; but its level of utilization in industrial products is very low. High molecular weight pectin is used in food products where it suffers from stagnant markets and high production costs due to the use of organic solvents, low concentration of extracted pectin and generation of soluble sugar streams which burden the waste treatmen ...

  7. Delivery of nematicides to control plant parasitic nematodes by using Tobacco mild green mosaic tobamovirus as a nanocarrier

    SBC: BIOPRODEX INC            Topic: 82

    We have developed a bioinspired nanoparticle technology using the coat protein (CP) assemblies ofTobacco mild green mosaic tobamovirus (TMGMV) to deliver nematicides to roots reduce dosageand improve soil mobility efficacy and safety. The CP's zwitterionic nature allows the loading andrelease of nematicides. The TMGMV-delivered nematicides (TDN) are efficacious againstCaenorhabditis elegans in liq ...

  9. Development of efficacious RNAi-based baits for RIFA control

    SBC: NANOSUR LLC            Topic: 82

    Imported Fire Ants (Solenopsis richteri Solenopsis invicta) are invasive pests which currentlyinfest over 140 million ha in 14 states. Damages related to fire ants have a significant impact onmany economic sectors including agriculture and biodiversity. The estimated annual cost spent onfire ant control is 3 billion dollars. Current chemical insecticides used in fire ant control are notselective c ...

  10. Development of High Squalene Tobacco

    SBC: SynShark LLC            Topic: 88

    SynShark LLC aims to create an economically viable source of squalene from American tobacco. Squalene is a triterpene important to the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry. Unfortunately squalene is mainly sourced through the "livering" of millions of deep-sea sharks threatening their populations. Through the Company's exclusively licensed technology for triterpene squalene which is extracted from ...
