BIO is confident biofuels can meet Renewable Fuel Standard.
Biotechnology Industry Organization    Washington, DC 20024
May 22, 2009 According to Brent Erickson, EVP of BIO Industrial and Environmental Section, biofuel companies are ready to deploy their technology and begin meeting requirements of National Renewable Fuel Standard. Analysis by EPA shows that biofuels produced with biotech tools will dramatically reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions from transportation. Biotechnology can also help farmers increase yields per acre and reduce petroleum inputs in agriculture.
NIST Engineers find flaw affecting transistor theory.NIST Engineers find flaw affecting transistor theory.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
May 22, 2009 Researchers from NIST, along with University of Maryland College Park and Rutgers University, found that theoretical model for mitigating defects between on/off states of transistors is inaccurate. According to Jason Campbell of NIST, fluctuation frequency is same even in nanometer-sized transistors, implying theory is wrong. Also, fluctuations observed grew more pronounced as power decreased, said Campbell, who presented group's findings at May 19, 2009, industry conference in Austin, TX.
NIST Study finds benefits to polymer research efforts.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
May 22, 2009 Study found that NIST Combinatorial Methods Center (NCMC), part of effort to develop combinatorial techniques in polymer research, realized economic benefits of at least $8.55 for every dollar invested by NIST and partners. Between 1998 and 2007, study estimates NCMC has yielded 161% social rate of return and has accelerated industry's adoption of combinatorial methods by average of 2.3 yr. The program has since branched out into nanostructured materials, organic electronics, and biomaterials.
