  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 ...

  2. Solar Refrigeration for Storage of Food Products

    SBC: MAGNETIC DEVELOPMENT INC            Topic: 86

    This proposal describes a novel method for the refrigeration and storage of food products that does not use electricity and is cleaner for the environment than any method currently in use. Our concept addresses many important economic and social development issues facing rural America such as access to good quality and safe food, food-borne illnesses, pollution, lack of adequate infrastructure to ...

  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. The Enzymatic Degradation of Quorum-Sensing Signals to Decrease Bacterial Phytopathogenicity

    SBC: Phyllotech, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Quorum-sensing (QS) allows bacterial populations to coordinate gene expression in a cell-density dependent manner and plays a significant role in plant pathogenesis. In gram-negative bacteria, QS is mediated by signaling molecules called acyl-homoserine lactones (AHLs). Our technological innovation is the use of an AHL-degrading enzyme to inactivate the AHL signals of bacterial phytopathogens and ...

  5. 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. Spawning, fry production and hybridization technologies for producing walleye for foodfish and stocking

    SBC: DAND FISH FARM            Topic: 87

    Walleye are a valuable foodfish and sportfish in the North Central US. The overall goal of our project is to test the feasibility of combining selected new technologies for the commercial production of walleye for food fish and for extended growth fingerlings for stocking. For food fish production we propose to compare the growth, production traits and production costs of hybrid walleye raised to ...

  8. Molecular Diagnostic Device for Penside Detection of Viral Pathogens Associated with Porcine Respiratory Disease Complex

    SBC: LUCIGEN CORPORATION            Topic: 83

    Respiratory tract infection in pigs, commonly referred to as "Porcine Respiratory Disease Complex (PRDC)", is a major challenge for the swine industry as it causes significant production and economic losses to producers worldwide. Timely detection of causative agents is required to minimize the spread of infection and reduce economic loses. Current diagnostic methods such as ELISA and PC ...

  9. Phosphate fertilizer recovery from anaerobic acid digesters in sewage treatment plants.

    SBC: Nutrient Recovery And Upcycling Llc            Topic: 84

    Facing strict effluent limits, municipal wastewater treatment facilities are dealing with increasing costs of treating phosphorus in their waste. Current technologies are capable of sequestering the phosphorus in an unusable form or capturing only a fraction of it. Nutrient Recovery and Upcycling, LLC is working on a technology that can recover 44% more of the phosphorus from municipal waste than ...

  10. 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 ...
