  • Patent number: 10650193
    Abstract: A system and method for lowering probability that low data rates, high bit error rates, and susceptibility to signal degradation in communication environments during storms, solar activity, and adversarial activity is disclosed. The system and method affect communications by minimizing the amount of data/information that needs to be transmitted, partly by creating an algorithmic process/method that moves knowledge and not data and information. The system and method is based upon the realization that structured communications often possess a similar level of context that can be exploited to communicate full meaning (knowledge), even when only a small fraction of the message is transmitted to the receiver. Reducing the number of bytes transmitted significantly reduces the probability that a transmission will be affected by either naturally occurring or human supplied factors present in modern communication environments.

  • Patent number: 10619108
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method for a simulated moving bed to adsorb and separate polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Zeolite, metal oxide and metal-modified materials are employed as adsorbent. Firstly, diesel oil flows through pre-treatment adsorbent to remove the trace amount of impurities. Secondly, the purified diesel oil flows through the simulated moving bed so that the PAHs can be separated from diesel oil. In this process, the valves are switched periodically, leading to the relative movement of adsorption beds. At the same time, desorbent is pumped into the equipment to wash out PAHs, achieving the continuous adsorption-regeneration operation. Thirdly, simple distillation is employed to separate desorbent from clean diesel oil and PAHs, respectively. Finally, the fractions of clean diesel oil and PAHs can be obtained, respectively. The separated desorbent can be recycled. The PAHs removal rate can reach to 90%.
