Customers have access to the BiotecConnect database through its “Bio/Nanotechnology Internet Knowledge Exchange” (BIKE) web portal.
Customers will use BIKE to rapidly build and store in a consistent format concise, complete and clear descriptions of all their knowledge, e.g. their discoveries, inventions and creations. They simply need to pick or enter Meta data to fill in sentences describing nine important elements of the knowledge. These elements are:
-Who Produced the knowledge
-The novelty of the knowledge, i.e. what was discovered, invented, or created
-The process by which the knowledge was acquired, i.e. how it was produced
-The utility or purpose for which the knowledge can be used, i.e. its practical application
-Anticipated value sought when producing the knowledge, i.e. why it was produced
-The scientific, societal and market demands for the knowledge, i.e. its commercial demand
-How, when and where the knowledge was communicated to the public, e.g. patent, publication, or seminar
-The list of products upon which the knowledge will have appositive impact, e.g. basic human needs products
-The technology transfer contact through which the knowledge may be licensed and commercialized
BIKE will also display each of the statements the customer creates describing the nine elements of the knowledge description with the Meta data you chose.
The customer may also use BIKE to store the expertise of the person who produced the knowledge.
Statements answering the questions posed by each component of the dissected knowledge description are completed simply by selecting or entering the appropriate meta data. The bold text in the knowledge description is the meta data that is stored in the BiotecConnect Relational Knowledge Management Database.

Last Year, 28 March 2009, Stanford University reported “Research team develops faux wood that can biodegrade” at http://storybank.stanford.edu/stories/research-team-develops-faux-wood-can-biodegrade. This will be the type of construction material which will be sustainable.
This year the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research announced a grant for “the development of novel biomaterials and technologies for promoting repair, regeneration, restoration and reconstruction of diseased and injured oral and craniofacial tissues” at http://www.zyn.com/sbir/sbres/sbir/hhs/nih10g-111.htm. This will be a sustainable biomaterial that will revolutionize healthcare.
More than one billion people have no access to clean drinking water. And the situation is getting worse.
BiotecConnect displays for your reference greater than 60 URLs and a half dozen FEEDs pertaining to the basic human need for water at https://secure.biotecconnect.com/page.cfm?page=water and at https://secure.biotecconnect.com/page.cfm?page=waterFEEDS.
The United Nations Industrial Development Organization launched the International Industrial Biotechnology Network (see http://indbiotech.net/aboutiibn/) to encourage scientific collaboration in biotechnology and commercial application of biotechnology knowledge and to improve both North-South and South-South communication of biotech knowledge and its applications.
BiotecConnect predicts that corporate social innovation will lead to the development of new products, and, even new sustainable industries to meet the huge demand globally for products to meet basic human needs.
In particular plant cell bioreactors potentially could be used to generate food and a carbon source to feed microorganisms used for fuel production.
Concentrated plant cells potentially could be grown in industrial scale bioreactors requiring much less use of land, water, pesticides and fertilizer than conventional agriculture since all operations will take place in a controlled environment and produce much less waste product.
New and improved enzymes that are discovered could potentially be applied to synthesize and manufacture from carbon sourced raw materials grown in bioreactors recyclable materials for clothing, construction and machinery.
New enzymes could also potentially be used to reprocess waste products that pollute the air and/or water.
Since the age of the dinosaurs, microorganisms have digested carbon based higher organisms and then, through geophysical forces over time, deposits of fossil fuels were produced which are employed today and predicted to run out in the near future.
Microorganisms engineered to efficiently digest carbon based raw materials could potentially be processed using recyclable machinery to generate a replacement for fossil fuels.
