  1. An Integrated Fermentation-Ultrafiltration Process for the Production of Xanthan Gum from Whey Lactose


    We have developed an enzyme process to produce GOS from whey lactose. GOS is a prebiotic with wide applications in human and animal foods. However, glucose and galactose are also produced in the process and must be removed from GOS because these monosaccharides do not have and can reduce the prebiotic effect. Xanthan gum is a microbial polysaccharide widely used as a suspending, stabilizing, and t ...

  2. TMI Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Operation on Animal-Waste Derived Ammonia Fuel


    Biomass offers extremely high potential as a carbon-neutral fuel source for power generation. Ammonia pollution from agricultural sources, particularly animal waste presents a serious chronic problem. Technology Management, Inc (TMI) proposes to demonstrate how ammonia contaminated biogas produced from wet biomass can be converted into useful electricity and heat by employing the Solid Oxide Fuel ...

  4. Computer Enhanced Automated Lecture

    SBC: SYTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Stand-up lectures are the prevailing method to deliver educational material to students in secondary and postsecondary education. The popularity of lectures must in part be due to their efficiency in communicating information. The cost and effectiveness of lectures varies widely with the instructor’s experience, the quality of presentation, and the ability of the instructor to engage the student ...

  7. Bioluminescent Detection of Chemical Agent Contamination

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: SB052025

    Chemical weapons such as organophosphate (OP) nerve agents pose a deadly risk to military and civilian personnel since they are easily dispersed, they persist in the environment, and are extremely toxic. In addition, OP pesticide contamination causes 1 to 3 million unintentional poisonings annually worldwide. Consequently, there is an urgent need for natural biological systems that can detect and ...
