STARTUP COMPANY PROFILES


CB BIOENERGY GREEN ENERGY PRODUCTION FOCUSING ON


MICROBIALLY ENHANCED METHANE PRODUCTION


Founded: 2010 Originating Department: Metallurgical Engineering/EGI Industry: Energy production (coal, oil, agriculture) Inventors: D. Jack Adams, Ph. D.; John McLennan, Ph. D.; Michael L. Free, Ph. D.; Jack Hamilton, Ph.D.


CB Bioenergy has developed crosscutting chemical and biological technologies for the production of methane from diverse sources (e.g., depleted CBM wells, depleted oil fields, coal and waste coal materials and various agricultural and food processing waste materials). CB Bioenergy employs


transformational applications of environmental friendly chemicals, and unique microbial consortia and bioprocess technologies that enhance methane production. CB Bioenergy is recognized for its unique combination of green chemicals, nutrients, enzymes and microbes, and unique treatment applications used to prepare in situ environments and ex situ bioreactors.


F2 SOLUTIONS A GUIDELINES-BASED APPROACH TO


MANAGEMENT OF FAINT AND FALL SYNDROME


Founded: 2010 Originating Department: Cardiology Industry: Health care Inventor: Mohamed Hamdan Website: www.faintandfall.com


F2 Solutions is providing a guidelines- based approach to the management of patients who have unexplained episodes of fainting or falling. Novel algorithms developed at the University of Utah use the most current U.S. and European guidelines to direct clinicians in the treatment of faint and fall patients. Specifically, software developed at


the university based on these algorithms


instructs physicians and other health-care professionals what diagnostic and testing procedures to use and provides decision support for hospital admission.


CREDIBILITY ASSESSMENT


TECHNOLOGIES (CAT) REINVENTING LIE-DETECTION TECHNOLOGY


Founded: 2010


Originating Department: Education Industry: Lie detection Inventor: John Kircher


Website: www.credibilitytechnologies.com


CAT provides lie-detector tests through proprietary eye-tracking software for government agencies and local law enforcement offices. CAT detects deception by asking an individual to read a series of pre- qualified questions on a computer monitor. Their software detects if the subject is lying based on


cognitive feedback (pupil dilatations) as opposed to standard physiological


feedback that is received with a polygraph.


IVEENA DEVELOPING NEW METHODS OF


TREATING EYE DISEASES


Founded: 2010 Originating Department: Moran Eye Center Industry: Ophthalmology Inventor: Balamurali Ambati


iVeena, LLC, is an early stage biotechnology company with the mission of developing a novel proprietary drug-delivery device, called the Capsule Drug Delivery Ring, for treatment of the opthalmic diseases. iVeena hopes to change the way eye diseases are treated and improve the quality of life


of more than 1 million people per year in the United Sates and potentially 3 million per year worldwide by preserving their vision and simplifying treatment.
