Cycling Reactor System
Technology Overview  Our solar receiver/reactor employs a bubble column medium together with a cavity solar receiver.  Concentrated solar radiation is first absorbed on the inner side of the cavity.  The absorbed heat is then transferred to the heat transfer fluid bath.  The cavity receiver and bubble column are integrated within the insulated pressure...

Photocatalytic Conversion of CO2 & Water into Hydrocarbon Fuels
Market need / ApplicationsThe transition to a low carbon global economy is both a technical and an economic challenge.  It is unrealistic to abandon the enormous investment in fossil fuel energy systems, particularly coal and gas but at the same time, it is not viable to continue the use of these assets without drastically reducing their emissions....

Polysaccharide Synthase (X)
Description: Non-cellulosic polysaccharides, including xylans, are key components of the cell walls in cereal grain tissues. These non-cellulosic polysaccharides constitute less than 10% of the overall weight of the grain; however they are important determinants of grain quality. Xylans are important in the large-scale feed and food processing activities,...

Polysaccharide Synthases - F and H
Non-cellulosic polysaccharides, including (1,3;1,4)-β-D-glucans, are key components of the cell walls in cereal grain tissues. These non-cellulosic polysaccharides constitute less than 10% of the overall weight of the grain; however they are important determinants of grain quality. (1,3;1,4)-β-D-glucans are important in the large-scale feed and food...
