  1. Low Cost Fuels Production from Agricultural Wastes Using Chemical Regeneration

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Bioconversion of lignocellulosic wastes to fuels and chemicals requires pretreatment to enhance conversion and reduce overall costs. Texas A&M University (TAMU) has tested a lime pretreatment process that is effective and low-cost. A significant element of the pretreatment cost is the lime regeneration system. To reduce costs, Altex has identified the Low Cost Lime Regenerator (LCLR). The LCLR is ...

  4. PONDWAYS: A NEW INTENSIVE-EXTENSIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR RECYCLING OF AQUACULTURE EFFLUENTS

    SBC: KENT SEATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Aquaculture is increasing at an annual rate of 20% and has become a $1 billion industry in the U.S. that provides more than 25% of our seafood supplies. Due to limited water supplies, future aquaculture development will probably involve closed systems in which the culture water is treated and recycled. Current recycling technologies are based on industrial waste treatment methods, but aquaculture ...

  5. DEMONSTRATING COMMERCIAL POTENTIAL OF ZINC FINGER PROTEINS FOR GENERATING VALUE-ADDED CROPS

    SBC: SANGAMO BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Zinc finger proteins (ZFPs) of the C2-H2 class are DNA-binding proteins that are ubiquitous in nature. By modifying the amino acids of the recognition helices according to a recently devised recognition code, ZFP's can be designed to bind DNA sequences of choice. This development has made possible the construction of chimeric transcription repressors and activators for regulating genes in plants. ...

  7. OPERATIONAL MODEL FOR THE DESIGN OF OPTIMUM WIND BREAKS TO REDUCE WIND-CAUSED EROSION OF SOIL

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP AN OPERATIONAL MODEL FOR THE DESIGN AND PLACEMENT OF WIND BREAKS TO CONTROLSOIL EROSION. OPTIMUM PROTECTION IS RELATED TO PHYSICAL PARAMETERS (HEIGHT, WIDTH, POROSITY, MATERIAL), NUMBER OF BARRIERS, LOCAL TERRAIN FEATURES, SOIL CHARACTERISTICS (INCLUDING SIZE DISTRIBUTION, MOISTURE CONTENT, COMPOSITION)AND METEOROLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS. CONSEQUENTLY, S ...
