  1. Lipid-based ELISA test for detection of dairy cattle with Johne`s disease

    SBC: ECKSTEIN DIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: 83

    Johne's disease (JD) is a significant problem in animal health, and this is underscored by its identification by the USDA as the most important infectious disease in ruminants and one of the priority diseases for 2009/2010. Infection with MAP usually occurs after birth and infected calves go through a short period with mild or no symptoms during which they shed the bacteria in feces. This short pe ...

  2. Development of a BtBooster Synergist for Bt Transgenic Plants

    SBC: INSECTIGEN INC            Topic: 82

    Insecticidal efficacy is a major insecticide market driver. In 2004, InsectiGen, Inc. announced a scientific breakthrough, BtBooster, a new technology that enhances the performance of the leading biopesticide, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). Although extended efforts to improve Bt biopesticides have led to the discovery of over 250 cry genes, only a few are deployed in Bt plants. BtBooster is a pepti ...

  3. Desulfurization of Biogas Derived from Animal Manure

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 811

    Farms and dairies generate byproducts containing more than 2 quadrillion Btu of energy per year. This energy is either not used at all or used in old and inefficient processes. Particularly, the use of biogas generated from bio-waste in distributed fuel cell systems presents a realistic, near-term solution that can yield large energy efficiency improvements. However, the biogas often contains rela ...

  4. Low-cost Removal of Dissolved Solids and Fermentation Inhibitors for Cellulosic Ethanol

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 81

    While significant progress has been made in the conversion of cellulosic biomass to fuel ethanol, it has not yet been commercialized on a wide-scale because a number of important technical problems remain unsolved. If these challenges can be overcome, cellulosic ethanol is much more promising as a renewable bio-fuel than corn ethanol because it produces a much greater net greenhouse gas (GHG) emis ...

  5. MOVING TOWARD A SUSTAINABLE TO-GO CONTAINER FOR HOT BEVERAGES IN MASS-MARKET FOODSERVICE

    SBC: TEA SPOT, THE            Topic: 89

    Within the past 2-3 years, an abundance of "eco-friendly" to-go hot beverage cups have appeared in the marketplace. Upon closer examination, many of these to-go cups for hot drinks have questionable environmental appeal and a strong "green-washing" market spin. The Tea Spot has designed a patent pending to-go system for loose leaf tea. Our plan is to manufacture these to-go systems for coffee and ...

  6. Forest waste contaminant removal for conversion into clean fuel for coal-fired power plants

    SBC: HM3 ENERGY, INC.            Topic: 81

    Utility companies have made huge investments in large capacity coal-fired power plants. The political winds are shifting, however, resulting in more and more pressure on utilities to reduce reliance on the use of coal with its resulting CO2 greenhouse gas missions. These utility companies potentially face losing the ability to continue operating these plants, along with the dependable and economic ...
