Title: New Mexico Small Business Assistance (NMSBA) September 2016 Advisory Council Update

Abstract

This is an update on two projects headed by Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories. The two projects are: The Electrochemical Based Gas Analyzer for Automotive Diagnostic and Maximizing the Production of High Value and High Demand Guar Gum on Marginal Lands in New Mexico. The Electrochemical Based Gas Analyzer for Automotive Diagnostic NMSBA leveraged project is made up of Albuquerque companies, Automotive Test Solutions, Inc. (ATS), ATS Mobile Diagnostics and Thoma Technologies and Los Alamos small business, VI Control Systems, to develop a new sensor system for the automotive industry. The Guar Gum NMSBA Leveraged Project began in January 2016 with the goal to develop biotechnology to enable a genetic modification of prairie cordgrass, a renewable feedstock for bioenergy and bio-manufacturing. In the long term, the companies hope to use the technology to bio-manufacture high value products in the stem of the plant. This document describes the laboratories' cooperation with small businesses on these projects.

  • The NYIT Energy Information Center is a comprehensive information service covering every aspect of energy conservation and related technology, including conservation programs and practices, alternative energy systems, energy legislation, and public policy development in the United States and abroad. Materials in the Center can be located through a Card Catalog system and a Vertical File System. The Card Catalog System has entries which organize books and other printed materials according to authors/titles and according to the subject headings developed by the Library of Congress. The Vertical System contains pamphlets, newsclips, reprints, studies, announcements, product specifications and other ephemeral literature, andmore » is organized according to subject headings based on the emerging vocabulary of the energy literature. The key to vertical file resources is the Thesaurus of Descriptors which makes up Part A. Part B is a listing of periodicals available through the Center or the Library. Part C is composed of a 1977 listing of selected acquisitions. The structure of the NYIT Energy Referral Service Poster is laid out in the final part.« less
  • An experimental Energy Advisory Service was created and operated by the New York Institute of Technology to test the effectiveness of various channels of communication in the dissemination of energy conservation information and technical assistance to homeowners, architects, engineers, builders, contractors, business persons, public officials, and the media. A telephone Hot Line, a comprehensive Energy Insformation Center, and a broad gauge Referral Service were operated as a unified complex and serviced more than 5,000 Hot Line inquiries from homeowners (67%) and others (33%). An innovative Interactive Television Seminar series serviced 2,200 professionals directly and indirectly with videotaped material and livemore » discussion on all aspects of energy conservation. Follow-up surveys indicated that the large majority of all users believed the Energy Advisory Service was valuable, reliable and unique as a comprehensive, easily accessible source of information and technical assistance on energy conservation and alternative energy systems.« less
  • Part A presents a complete list of major categories and key words which structure the Hot Line card system. A complete replica is then provided of all information appearing on the 442 Question and Answer Cards. Part B lists pamphlets and other published materials used in Hot Line mailings. Part C lists special information packets available. (MCW)
  • Groundwater samples were collected from monitoring wells at the Bluewater, New Mexico, Disposal Site to monitor groundwater contaminants as specified in the 1997 Long-Term Surveillance Plan for the DOE Bluewater (UMTRCA Title II) Disposal Site Near Grants, New Mexico (LTSP). Sampling and analyses were conducted as specified in the Sampling and Analysis Plan for U.S. Department of Energy Office of Legacy Management Sites (LMS/PRO/S04351, continually updated). A duplicate sample was collected from location 16(SG).
  • This report offers a design and recommendations for implementing a program of education to assist Department of Energy buyers and procurement officers in increasing the quality and quantity of small disadvantaged business (DB) participation in their contracted work. The recommendations are based on a previous companion report, ''Issues in Contracting with Small Minority Businesses,'' from which technical assistance and related needs were derived. The assistance program is based on buyer and disadvantaged-business needs, as determined from synthesizing the results of interviews with over two dozen minority business leaders and procurement officers.
