  1. Development of Reliable, Economical Briquetting of Torrefied Forest Residue Without Binders to Produce Sturdy, Water Resistant Briquettes

    SBC: HM3 ENERGY, INC.            Topic: 81

    Unlike raw wood pellets, energy dense torrefied biomass pellets or briquettes share important traits with coal which make them a promising alternative clean fuel to use directly in coal plants. They are brittle (not fibrous, like raw pellets), so they can be pulverized just like coal before being fed into the coal boiler. They also have similar BTU content to coal and are water resistant, so they ...

  2. Diagnostic Tools for Managing Vibriosis in Marine Shellfish Hatcheries

    SBC: MABDX INC.            Topic: 87

    World marine food farming production (aquaculture) is dependent on hatchery and nursery production of large quantities of high quality larvae and juvenile shellfish, shrimp and fish. Bacterial diseases, particularly vibriosis, are a major cause of mortality in hatcheries and nurseries and causelarge losses and great expense for fish and shellfish growers along the nation & #39;s coasts. Simple, sp ...

  3. Novel lure for more sensitive monitoring of potato psyllid

    SBC: ALPHA SCENTS, INC.            Topic: 813

    The goal of this proposal is to develop host-plant attractants that Potato Psyllid (PP) utilize to find and colonize host plants. PP exhibits a marked preference for potato volatiles and trough feeding process changes composition of the volatile blend. Semiochemicals (host-plant volatiles) are commonly used to manipulate insect behaviors in IPM programs such as monitoring insect pest populations f ...

  5. Enhanced Capability Point Combined Bio and Chem Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: CBD07105

    In this Phase II program, to enable long-standoff-range, small-sized, high-performance, cost-effective LWIR DISC LIDAR systems, a six-element array of 1-mm, segmented HgCdTe avalanche photodiodes (APDs) will be designed, optimized and each APD will be directly coupled to a unique narrow-band cold-filter, with unique spectral bandpass filters

  6. Q-Trap: In-transit detection of bioinvasive insects in intermodal shipping containers.

    SBC: APTIV            Topic: N/A

    This sensitive insect sensor will run 24 hours per day, every day that cargo is in transit, attracting insects to a containment surface where they remain for immediate detection and identification when inspectors gain entry to the container. Flying insects will be waiting, ready to be counted on arrival, rather than hidden within the cargo. An increase in the availability, timeliness, accuracy and ...

  7. Improvement of The Yield and Quality of Poplar Biomass for the United States Bio Fuels Industry

    SBC: GREENWOOD RESOURCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Hybrid poplar plantations will play a large role in the supply of cellulosic feedstock, in meeting the Nation's 30x30 goals for the renewable transportation fuels industry. The success of the poplar plantation industry will be contingent on elite plant material that has undergone hybridization for improved agronomic characteristics. Hybridization between the cottonwoods and the poplars has been th ...
