Development of a breeding system in Chlamydomonas moewusii for improved production strainsSBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC. Topic: 08c
For economically viable large-scale production of microalgae based food and biofuel to become a reality, significant improvements in algal productivity need to be achieved. With current regulatory guidelines, large scale outdoor cultivation of microalgae for these products restricts the use of transgenic algal strains, which in the laboratory, have thus far been the primary strategy taken to effec ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
Domestication of the microalga Scenedesmus obliquus for biomass feedstock productionSBC: Microbio Engineering, Inc Topic: 08c
To advance a strong and economical biofuels and bioproducts industry, tools are needed for breeding microalgae to improve phenotypes of commercial interest, including biomass yield, culture stability, harvestability, and accumulation of valuable compounds. This project aims to increase biomass feedstock yields by the phototrophic green alga Scenedesmus obliquus by using classical breeding approach ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
Ultrafast Electron Microscopy Module to Upgrade Existing Commercial Electron MicroscopesSBC: Niowave, Inc. Topic: 11a
This project will develop a flexible longitudinal electron optical system based on high-precision radio-frequency cavities for short and intense electron bunch compressions, both in the energy and time domains. The proposed system is designed to be insertable into an existing transmission electron microscope column to upgrade its temporal resolution. Active phase-space control enables broad ranges ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
Predictive Analytics-Based US Inland Waterways Voyage Planning Analysis Tool (VSAT)SBC: Trabus Topic: 01a
Trabus Technologies (TRABUS), working with Louisiana State University (LSU), will develop a predictive analytics-based US Inland Waterways Voyage Planning Analysis tool to help vessel traffic managers, tow boat pilots, and river lock operators maximize transport logistic resources. This tool will use current and forecasted hydrographic, meteorological, lock status, and Marine Safety Information to ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
Plasma Catalyst Coupling for Improved Conversion of Methane to LiquidsSBC: HIFUNDA LLC Topic: 22c
The discovery of large shale gas reserves in recent years has resulted in the reduction of natural gas price and a need to develop new applications for the available resource. Upgrading shale gas to liquid fuels which are more easily transportable and have greater economic value can result in significant benefits to the US. Coupled with this challenging problem the DOE has a goal of further develo ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
Novel isotope sensor for spatially-resolved analysis of nutrient exchange in the rhizosphere Topic: 22.a. Technologies for Characterizing the Rhizosphere: Plant-Microbe-Mineral InteractionsSBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC Topic: 22a
Ensuring adequate agricultural productivity in the face of an increasing human population is a major concern with implications for both production of bioenergy products (Jones and Hinsinger, 2008) and global food security. Increasing agricultural productivity requires a stronger understanding of soil biogeochemical processes that impact plant nutrient availability. We propose development of an inn ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
