State fund advances titanium powder research, 9 other Iowa State projects
Date:11/5/2008

ates Inc. of Cedar Rapids to develop the next generation of meters that measure exhaust flows from automobiles. The technology could help auto manufacturers develop engine technologies that minimize pollutants from biofuels.

  • $79,050 to Michael Kessler, an assistant professor of materials science and engineering and an associate of the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory; and Richard Larock, a Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and an associate of the Ames Laboratory. They're working with an Iowa company to develop resins based on corn, soy and other bio oils that can be used to manufacture fiberglass-reinforced products.

  • $78,452 to David Grewell, assistant professor of agricultural and biosystems engineering; Kessler; Krishna Rajan, professor of materials science and engineering; William Graves, professor of horticulture; and Howard Van Auken, professor of management. They intend to work with five companies: Pella Corp. of Pella, Creative Composites of Ankeny, Vermeer Corp. of Pella, Soy Works Corp. of Woodridge, Ill. and Freeman Industries of Tuckahoe, N.Y. They want to develop and commercialize plastic products made from corn and soy proteins, including wrapping for hay bales, pots for plants, construction panels, lubrication sticks and other products.

  • $66,477 to Nicola Pohl, an associate professor of chemistry. Pohl will work with LuCella Biosciences Inc. of Ames to advance a carbohydrate synthesis technology for biologists and pharmaceutical scientists. The technology can fabricate a custom-order, complex carbohydrate molecule in 24 hours; current technology requires six to 12 months for the same molecule at a cost that can be 10 times higher than the new technology.

  • $33,443 to Timothy Ellis, an associate professor of civil, construction and environmental engineering. Ellis will work with Envirotech Systems Inc. of Lawton to use rubber particles from scrap tires to develop a process to clean hydroge
