Assessment of volatile organic compound and hazardous air pollutant emissions from oil and natural gas well pads using mobile remote and on-site direct measurements
Results from the 2011 DJ on-site study indicate that emissions from condensate storage tanks are highly variable and can be an important source of VOCs and HAPs, even when control measures are present, and results from the remote measurement method OTM 33A indicate that it can be used effectively as an inspection technique for identifying oil and gas well pads with large fugitive emissions.
Analysis of the impact of data resolution on the speaker recognition effectiveness in embedded fixed-point systems
An analysis of issues related to the resolution of the biometric data of the speech signal processing implemented using fixed-point digital signal processor and the influence of data resolution on the accuracy of the calculations and the efficiency of identification.

Are the U.S. Navy's current procedures for responding to homeland defense and security tasking adequately designed?
Abstract : With the spectrum of the range of military operations broadening, the operational tempo of Department of Defense assets has substantially increased. Military leaders must look to
Field experiments in charitable contribution: The impact of social influence on the voluntary provision of public goods
We study the effect of social information on the voluntary provision of public goods. Competing theories predict that others[1] contributions might be either substitutes or complements to one's own.


Production of acetone, butanol and ethanol (ABE) from potato wastes: fermentation with integrated membrane extraction
The technical possibilities of the microbial production of acetone, butanol and ethanol (ABE) from potato waste using in-line solvent recovery, are evaluated. Clostridium acetobutylicum DSM 1731

Extractive fermentation for butyric acid production from glucose by Clostridium tyrobutyricum.
Improved performance for extractive fermentation can be attributed to the reduced product inhibition by selective removal of butyric acid from the fermentation broth, which resulted in higher product concentration and product purity.
Biopower Technical Assessment: State of the Industry and the Technology
This report provides an assessment of the state of the biopower industry and the technology for producing electricity and heat from biomass. Biopower (biomass-to-electricity generation), a proven
Continuous production of butanol by clostridium acetobutylicum immobilized in a fibrous bed bioreactor
Compared to the conventional acetone-butanol-ethanol fermentation, the new fermentation process greatly improved butanol yield, making butanol production from corn an attractive alternative to ethanol fermentation.
High quality biodiesel production from a microalga Chlorella protothecoides by heterotrophic growth in fermenters.
Butanol fermentation research: upstream and downstream manipulations.
It was found that C. beijerinckii BA101 was defective in PTS activity and that it compensates for this defect with enhanced glucokinase activity, resulting in an ability to transport and utilize glucose during the solventogenic stage, and gas stripping appears to be the most promising.
Treatment of dairy and swine manure effluents using freshwater algae: fatty acid content and composition of algal biomass at different manure loading rates
Algal biomass harvested from indoor laboratory-scale algal turf scrubber units showed no consistent relationship to loading rate, type of manure, or to whether supplemental carbon dioxide was added to the systems.
