  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 ...

  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 ...

  4. Improve Competitiveness of Specialty Crop Production through a New Product Quality Verification Method

    SBC: SMART VISION WORKS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Agricultural sorting and grading is most commonly preformed primarily through the use of human resources. Farm workers sort crops by hand through visual inspection. This process is expensive and highly subjective. In addition the labor force is susceptible to human error which can impact the quality of the resulting data. The outcome of this project will be to increase efficiencies in the grading ...

  7. Physiologically Compatible Hemodialysis through Advanced Dialysate Regeneration

    SBC: Chemica Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The uremic syndrome is a disabling condition attributed to the progressive retention of solutes that would normally be excreted by the kidneys and which interact negatively with physiological systems/functions. These are broadly defined as uremic toxins. Hemodialysis treatment is prescribed for the majority of individuals in the final stages of renal failure. However, better dialysis options (leng ...

  8. Rapid Detection of Endemic Fungal Infections in the U.S.

    SBC: NANOSHELL COMPANY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Lectin recognition of fungal cell wall polysaccharides will be used to develop a rapid screening chip technology for the detection endemic fungal infection in blood. Fungal infections are life threatening to immune-compromised and immuno-suppressed patients (i.e. premature and malnourished infants, AIDS and cancer patients. seniors, and organ donation recipients). In addition to routine screenin ...
