Construction of a Lactobacillus Casei Ethanologen Utah State University researchers have developed a technology that enhances Lactobacillus casei’s ability to produce ethanol. L. casei is a nonpathogenic microorganism used in the production of biofuels and bioplastics. While most biofuel methods struggle with deficiencies in production, this technology for biologically-engineered bacterium h...

Door Way Training and Sensor's Relationship Table Construction USU researchers have developed a method for commissioning motion sensors in a controlled room. Unlike many other approaches, this system adapts to the location of entrances and other objects to increase energy efficiency. This technology can also adjust lighting/room temperature as it monitors the activity of individuals entering and leaving the ro...
