  2. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  5. Selection and Genomic Characterization of Honey Bees Resistant to Viral Pathogens

    SBC: Bee Power, LP            Topic: 82

    Honey bee populations, especially managed honey bees, have been adversely affected by Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), Varroa destructor mite infestations and viral pathogens. A variety of viral pathogens have been identified as potential factors contributing to CCD, and viral pathogens are vectored by Varroa mites. Honey bee viruses, including deformed wing virus (DWV), cause individual honey bee ...

  6. Sequential injection enzymatic assay for melamine detection in food.

    SBC: BIOO SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: 85

    Protecting the integrity of the nation's food from contamination by toxins is a very serious challenge for our country. Melamine, in particular, is a toxic substance which has recently emerged as a serious threat to the safety of the U.S. food supply. Recent, widely-reported food and feed contaminations by melamine have fueled an increased demand for improved assays to screen the food supply for m ...

  7. Biomass-based Commodity Polymers from 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 88

    A shift from conventional petrochemical feedstocks towards biomass-based feedstocks is of both environmental and economical importance for the future production of commodity chemicals. 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) is a versatile biomass-derived platform compound that can be used to synthesize a broad range of chemicals currently derived from petroleum, such as furan-2,5-dicarboxylic acid (FDA). A ...

  9. Improved Heterogeneous Catalyst for the Transesterification of Fats and Oils to Biodiesel

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 88

    World oil reserves are concentrated in just a few countries, primarily in the Middle East which holds nearly two-thirds of the world's oil reserves. With a rising demand in industrialized nations and an even faster increasing demand from developing countries (e.g. India, China, etc.), the pressure on these oil reserves increases and could serve as a basis for future conflicts between nations aimin ...

  10. A Biogas-Tolerant Engine-Generator for Advanced Agricultural Waste Management Systems

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 811

    Anaerobic digesters are capable of producing methane-rich biogas from animal manure and also offer the advantages of controlling odors, reducing pathogens, and minimizing the environmental impact of the waste. The biogas produced from anaerobic digesters is a renewable, distributed source of energy that can be used to generate electricity to offset power consumption on farms. Unfortunately, biogas ...
