  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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. Development of an effective non-antibiotic dry-off agent for the dairy industry

    SBC: AMELGO            Topic: 83

    Intramammary infection (a.k.a., mastitis) is the largest attributable cause of lost productivity, discarded milk, chronic morbidity, and prophylactic antibiotic use in the dairy industry. The majority of new infections are associated with the dry period, during which the udders are temporarily engorged with milk that often leaks from the teat ends. Furthermore, the three major agencies of the U.S. ...

  8. 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 ...
