  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. 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. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...
