System and converting biomass material into energy products


A continuous biomass-to-energy system and method used for production of high-energy fuel, liquids and gases from municipal wastes and organic wastes, where the municipal wastes and organic wastes is processed through a controlled pyrolysis process and a controlled gas separation process to extract products gases from a distillation tower system of the system. The biomass-to-energy system also discharges byproducts that are removed to offsite facilities and a combustible gas stream that can be utilized to generate electricity.

Water closet and septic system


A water closet for disposing of human waste includes a septic system, a toilet, a floor, and an enclosure. The septic system includes a primary chamber, a secondary chamber spaced a distance laterally from the primary chamber, a fluid communication member extending between the primary chamber and the secondary chamber, and an outlet member extending away from the secondary chamber.

Treatment of municipal wastewater with anaerobic digestion


Low strength wastewater such as municipal sewage is treated using an anaerobic digester. In some examples, a wastewater stream is separated into a solids rich portion and a solids lean portion.

Method for deammonification process control using ph, specific conductivity, or ammonia


A method and a system as described herein, including a method and system of treating ammonium containing water in a deammonification mbbr process where partial nitritation and anaerobic ammonium oxidation may occur simultaneously in a biofilm, or in an integrated fixed film activated sludge process where partial nitritation takes place in a suspended growth fraction and anaerobic ammonium oxidation occurs in a biofilm. The method and system include controlling airflow to the reactor to achieve a target ph, a target alkalinity, a target specific conductivity, and/or a target ammonium concentration in the reactor or in the effluent..

Modified mushroom stool exercise device


A modified mushroom stool exercise device for enabling aerobic and anaerobic exercise for a user seated thereon comprises a base member for providing a lower level having four wheels, a main body disposed over the base and a cushion member disposed over the main body. These parts are connected through a vertical swivel pole which is connected to the bottom of the cushion member, passes through the main body, and connects to the top of the base member.

Butyrogenic bacteria as probiotics to treat clostridium difficile


The subject invention pertains to the use of certain bacterial strains, particularly butyrogenic bacteria, for preparing a composition to treat and/or prevent clostridium difficile infection. In particular, the invention relates to the use of butyrate-producing anaerobic fermenters of gut commensals in pharmaceutical or food compositions..
