Heavy metal remediation via sulfur-modified bio-oils

We have now discovered a novel process for the removal or extraction of metal species from a variety of solid, liquid or gas phase materials. Metal species may be removed by contacting the material suspected of containing one or more metals with a thiolated fatty acid or ester thereof for a period of time and under conditions effective far the sequestration of the metal species by the thiolated fatty acid or ester thereof.

Manufacturing of nitrogen-containing materials

It has been discovered that waste cross-linked polymer materials both synthetic (scrap tire rubber, used polyurethane, and epoxy and phenol resins in discarded printed circuit boards) and natural (wood biomass, keratin, and chitin) can be conveniently depolymerized at slightly elevated temperatures and moderate pressures by the action of a liquid chemical reagent. The proposed inexpensive process results in a substantial to total depolymerization of synthetic polymers and thereby recovers valuable liquid and solid materials.

Low-fat processed mozzarella cheese and food items containing same

The invention concerns a process for the production of a low-fat mozzarella comprising the steps of preparing a bulking pre-mix of dry components such as one or a mixture of rennet casein, sodium casein, milk protein concentrate and whey protein concentrate, salt, potassium sorbate and/or sorbic acid, sodium aluminium phosphate, sodium citrate, starch, skim milk powder, and stabiliser; adding said pre-mix to water at ambient temperature; raising the temperature to 80 to 85° c. Whilst stirring the mixture; and adding natural mozzarella, sequestering agent, and citric acid monohydrate or lactic acid until the mixture is smooth and homogeneous..

Process for making high-protein dairy product

A dairy-based yogurt product having a protein level above 15%, sometimes more than 25%, with a smooth and rich texture and no grittiness. The yogurt product includes a particular selection of dairy proteins and other ingredients to raise the gelation temperature of the dairy proteins and avoid causing gelation or precipitation during pasteurization.

Predicting the carbon footprint of urban stormwater infrastructure

A planning system for planning the landscaping of a particular piece of land in terms of carbon footprint models predefined types of stormwater management infrastructure and assists a user in constructing a plan for managing the land's stormwater according to carbon footprint. The net carbon footprint of the plan is calculated according to type-specific equations that formulate carbon embodied in the materials, emitted during the construction, emitted during the maintenance, and sequestered by the materials of the one or more types of stormwater management infrastructure employed by the plan.

Distributed persistent memory using asynchronous streaming of log records

Technologies for distributed durable data replication include a computing device having persistent memory that stores a memory state and an update log. The computing device isolates a host partition from a closure partition.

Removal of particulates from blood using an apparatus including a size-differentiating element

The invention relates to methods of using an apparatus to sequester thrombi (including emboli) from blood of an animal such as a human. The apparatus comprises a stepped or sloped separation element interposed between an inlet region and an outlet region of a void that can be filled with fluid.

System and carbon dioxide capture and sequestration

A method and a system for removing carbon dioxide directly from ambient air, using a sorbent under ambient conditions, to obtain relatively pure co2. The co2 is removed from the sorbent using process heat, preferably in the form of steam, at a temperature in the range of not greater than about 130° c., to capture the relatively pure co2.

Game table system

A game table system equipped with a means of collecting and sequestering scrap paper in a scrap collection bin features a table having a platform located atop a plurality of legs. The system features a player game surface located on the platform top surface.

Packaged ready-to-use product and method

A vapor hydrated packaged catheter assembly and method of manufacturing and distributing same includes a gas impermeable package housing a catheter within a catheter-receiving cavity. The catheter assembly has a hydrophilic coating applied to at least a portion of the outer surface of a catheter tube or shaft which may be surrounded by a sleeve to provide a no-touch, sure grip feature.
