Electro-Fermentation Disclosure Number 201403323 Technology Summary Current pathways to generate biofuels either ferment sugars derived from biomass or convert them to a partially- oxygenated intermediate to be reduced to higher density fuels. The energy density and yield of a biofuel product is limited by the oxygen content of the feedstock, the metabolic capability of the organism a…

Bioelectrochemical Waste Treatment Yields Hydrogen/Electricity Water scarcity is becoming a major issue for the United States and other countries as water use for agricultural and biofuel crops and industrial processes such as fracking increases. The issue is compounded by the fact that water used for food, fuel, and energy production results in large amounts of wastewater laden with organic comp…

Slide-In Chamber for Microscopic Observations of Plant-Microbe Interactions Slide-In Chamber for Microscopic Observations of Plant-Microbe Interactions Disclosure Number 201303166 Technology Summary The slide-in-plant chamber is a small device compatible for use with microscopes (brightfield, confocal) for visualizing events occurring around or inside the roots of plants in real t…

Bacterial Fermentation Improves Metallic, Semiconducting Nanoparticle Production A team of researchers at ORNL has successfully developed a method for producing inorganic nanoparticles, and controlling their size and shape, using a bacterial fermentation process that employs chemicals to control bacterial synthesis. They subsequently built on that research by producing in large quantities semicon…
