Method for producing a treated natural gas, a cut rich in c3+ hydrocarbons and optionally an ethane-rich stream, and associated facility


The method includes the following steps, sampling a recycling stream (152) in a head stream (131, 140, 141) stemming from a recovery column (35), establishing a heat exchange relationship of the recycling stream (152) with at least one portion of the head stream (131) stemming from the recovery column (35), reintroducing, after expansion, the cooled and expanded recycling stream into the recovery column (35). The method includes sampling in the bottom of the recovery column (35) of at least one bottom reboiling stream (165), and establishing a heat exchange relationship of the re-boiling stream with at least one portion of the initial natural gas (13) or/and with the recycling stream (152), the bottom reboiling being ensured by the calories taken from the initial natural gas stream (13) or/and from the recycling stream (152).

Ambient light cell phones, smart watches, occupancy sensors, and wearables


An improved sensor (102) for respiratory and metabolic monitoring in mobile devices, wearables, security, illumination, photography, and other devices and systems uses a broadband ambient light (114), which is then transmitted to a target (125) such as the ear, face, or wrist of a living subject. Some of the scattered light returning from the target to detector (141) is passed through spectral filter set (155) to produce multiple detector regions, each region sensitive to a different narrowband wavelength range, and the detected light is spectrally analyzed to determine a measure of a physiology of the subject such as pulse, respiration, hydration, calories.
