Abstract: A high energy transport gas and a method to transport the high energy transport gas are used to increase the energy content of a pipeline and other vessels that are designed to carry natural gas under ambient conditions, in a compressed state or in a liquefied state. Methane and other gases are used as the feedstock, with methane from natural gas fields, coal beds or derived from hydrogen reacting with coal being primary energy sources. Also, this gas and method can provide an abundant source for hydrogen production, and the energy from hydrogen can be used for fuel cell applications that generate electricity and power motor vehicles. This gas and method are capable of increasing the energy capacity of current natural gas pipelines and other storage and transport vessels.
Abstract: An electromagnetic susceptor for chemical processing that is made from a matrix material that surrounds a non-matrix material that is made from a material that is different from the matrix material, the matrix material is constructed of material having lower dielectric losses compared to the non-matrix material, the non-matrix material initially absorbs electromagnetic energy applied to the electromagnetic susceptor to a greater extent than the matrix material, the non-matrix material produces subsequent heat in the matrix material, and the greatest length of measurement of the electromagnetic susceptor is between one nanometer and 10 meters.

Abstract: A pigment composition for use as a substrate to produce ink, paints, and pigment compounds, the composition being made from an aqueous slurry containing about 17 to 40% calcium carbonate, based on the weight of said aqueous slurry, and an inorganic pigment from group comprising titanium dioxide, in which the amount of calcium carbonate is higher than that found in standard pigment compositions and the amount of amount of pigment is lower than that found in standard pigment compositions, yet there is not an appreciable degradation of the color, coating, and other qualities of the pigment composition.
Abstract: A method for the recovery of zinc oxide from industrial waste materials of various components, including zinc, lead, iron and cadmium, comprising the steps of treating the waste material with an ammonium chloride solution maintained at an elevated temperature, separating the undissolved components from the solution, treating the solution with zinc metal to displace undesired metal ions from the solution, cooling the solution to precipitate therefrom zinc compounds, washing the precipitated zinc compounds to remove unwanted compounds such as diamino zinc dichloride, and drying the remaining zinc compound which is essentially hydrated zinc oxide, resulting in essentially pure zinc oxide.
Abstract: A method and apparatus which utilizes a novel dye solution for dyeing carpet in which the dye solution is heated to a temperature higher than the boiling point of water thus allowing fixation of the dye on the carpet without the need for a steam fixator.
Abstract: A method and apparatus for heating the interior surfaces of a hollow organ or orifice of the human body for the treatment of viral infections, microbial infections, and cancers, the apparatus including an insertion body 11 having a semi-rigid support tube 12 and an inflatable balloon 17. Conduits 38 and 39 connect the interior of the inflatable balloon 17 with a heating and pumping unit 31 for heating liquid and circulating liquid within the inflatable balloon to heat the outer surface of the inflatable balloon. For treating infections and cancers, the insertion body is inserted into the organ or orifice and inflated and heated to a selected temperature, e.g., 44.degree. C., and maintained at the temperature for an extended length of time, e.g., for four hours.
