  1. Hybrid Laser Arc Welding for Thick Plate High Performance Steels

    SBC: TECHKNOWSERV CORP            Topic: 132FH1

    High performance steels were developed in a cooperative program between the Federal Highway Administration (FHA), the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), and the U.S. Navy Carderock Division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center. HPS70W high strength steel is currently being used in bridge structures. HPS is stronger than conventional 70W steel and has less than 15% of the sulfur and 60% of th ...

  3. High Efficiency Low Cost Electrochemical Ammonia Production

    SBC: Proton Energy Systems, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Industrial processes for production of ammonia (NH3) and urea nitrogen-based fertilizers aremainly based on the Haber-Bosch process, which involves the heterogeneous reaction ofnitrogen (N2) and hydrogen (H2) on an iron-based catalyst at high pressure (150-300 atm) andhigh temperature (400 & deg;-500 & deg;C). The equilibrium conversion of H2 and N2 gas to NH3 in theHaber-Bosch process is ...

  4. Enhanced Butanol Yields for Advcanced Biofuels Production Using an Electrochemical Bioreactor

    SBC: BIOCHEMINSIGHTS INC            Topic: 88

    Biofuels from agricultural sources is one component of the strategy for achieving energy independence. Specifically, bio-butanol is a more attractive fuel than bio-ethanol because it:provides better gas mileage;achieves higher blends with gasoline than bioethanol;runs in existing engines;has greater compatibility with existing fuel infrastructure;is less volatile than ethanol;is more amenable to t ...

  6. Low cost approach for production of sweet proteins as sugar substitutes

    SBC: Abzyme Therapeutics, LLC            Topic: 85

    In a large portion of the population the strong desire to eat sweet foods is a major contributing factor leading to overweightness and obesity, and the concomitant predisposition to diabetes diseases. Low calorie sweeteners like Saccharin, Aspartame, Cyclamate and Acesulfame K are popular with patients affected by diseases caused by the consumption of sugar, e.g. diabetes, hyperlipemia, caries, ob ...

  7. Development of water based 1-methyl cyclopropene formulation for modifying ethylene response of fruit and field crops

    SBC: MIRTECH INC.            Topic: 85

    The objective of this project is to develop a sprayable water-based 1-methylcycopropene (1-MCP) liquid formulation for apple, to manage the undesirable effects of ethylene when the fruits are still attached to the tree and during post-harvest storage. The motivation is to overcome the limitations of current delivery formulations to improve quality and extend the shelf life of fruits, a major imped ...

  8. COMPACT EFFICIENT AND ECONOMIC SOIL STEAM DISINFESTATION

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Precision Combustion, Inc. is developing a compact steam generator as the core of a tractor-pulled agricultural soil steaming disinfestation system. Our prototype 550 pound steam generator is sized to disinfest ~1 acre of soil every 12 hours, at costs similar to applications of methyl bromide or other fumigant packages. Our technology offers an economic and practical alternative to fumigant soil d ...

  10. Happy Atoms

    SBC: Schell Games LLC            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of Happy Atoms, a game to support middle school students in learning about the composition of molecules. Happy Atoms will include physical manipulative balls with embedded magnets wirelessly connected to a tablet application (app) to recognize whether or not the created molecule exists and explain why or why not. The app will also include teacher resource ...
