  2. Enhanced Butanol Yields for Advcanced Biofuels Production Using an Electrochemical Bioreactor

    SBC: BIOCHEMINSIGHTS INC            Topic: 88

    Biofuels from agricultural sources is one component of the strategy for achieving energy independence. Specifically, bio-butanol is a more attractive fuel than bio-ethanol because it:provides better gas mileage;achieves higher blends with gasoline than bioethanol;runs in existing engines;has greater compatibility with existing fuel infrastructure;is less volatile than ethanol;is more amenable to t ...

  3. Benign Plant Derived Surfactants for Household and Other Applications

    SBC: NATURE'S SECRET SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: 88

    The goal of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of using renewable plant-based materials to derive biodegradable, environmentally benign, non-toxic surfactants, to replace the chemically synthesized surfactants in use today. Surfactants are a unique class of chemical products that are used in large quantities for a wide variety of detergents, household cleaning products, personal care p ...

  4. Fungal Mycelium Biocomposites for Absorbent Floral Foam Materials

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: 88

    Ecovative & #39;s vision is to grow sustainable products that directly replace the toxic plastics that poison our planet. The use and handling of phenol-formaldehyde foams and resins in the floricultural industry have documented environmental health and safety concerns. Although the physical performance of phenol formaldehyde foams is adequate for floricultural arrangements, there are signific ...

  5. Production of organic acids from crude glycerol in industrial yeast hosts

    SBC: Lygos, Inc.            Topic: 88

    The goal of this Phase I work plan is to construct a prototype biocatalyst that produces propionic acid from glycerol, a byproduct from biodiesel manufacturing. Propionic acid is a large volume, commodity chemical currently produced from petroleum. A biological production process may provide a route to generate this compound renewably, at reduced cost relative to the incumbent petrochemical proces ...

  6. Value-Added Use of Non-Wood Biomass Combustion Ash Towards Prod. of Sustainable, Economical and High-Performance Geopolymer Concrete

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 88

    The project will develop value-added applications for non-wood biomass combustion ashes, relying upon their typical chemical composition, in inorganic polymers (geopolymers). as sustainable, safe, high-performance and economically competitive binder materials. Biomass ash-based geopolymers promise important environmental (carbon footprint, energy content), performance (barrier, durability, chemica ...

  7. Direct Conversion of Farm Manure to Biodiesel and ethanol Utilizing a Novel Extremophilic Fungus

    SBC: Sustainable Bioproducts LLC            Topic: 88

    Agriculture in the United States produces significant quantities of waste manure that can be converted to biofuels. Current technologies to covert manure into fuels are typically limited by poor conversion efficiencies, the requirement for significant and costly inputs and controls to sustain the conversion process, and the low cost of the produced fuel (methane). Consequently, implementation and ...

  8. Development of Anti-Microbial Peptide Therapeutics

    SBC: TENSIVE CONTROLS, INC.            Topic: 83

    A safe food supply is critical to the well being of any society. However, in highly urbanized societies, the number of people affected by a contaminated food source can be huge. Antibiotic resistant disease in the U.S. is an escalating problem [2, 3]. Much of this problem is a result of the use of antibiotics in production animals, where they prevent disease. Chronic use results in the emergence o ...

  9. Single-injection, self-contained booster vaccine

    SBC: ORBIS BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: 83

    Vaccination is a particularly powerful weapon in the fight against wide-spread livestock disease. Commercially available vaccines, however, are often difficult and costly for livestock producers to use properly, leaving individual animals - and by extension the global food supply - at risk. More specifically, many vaccines on the market today require multiple injections spaced several weeks apart ...

  10. A Low-Cost Quantitative Anemia Detection Method for Livestock

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 83

    Gastrointestinal parasites are the most important pathogens of sheep and goats worldwide. Anemia is the primary sign of internal parasite infection, and many sheep die of blood loss anemia secondary to abomasal parasites. Anemia results in pale mucous membranes and conjunctiva in animals and humans. This SBIR project will develop a mobile App to determine the hemoglobin blood count in large animal ...
