  • Patent number: RE48308
    Abstract: An IBTL system having a low GHG footprint for converting biomass to liquid fuels in which a biomass feed is converted to liquids by direct liquefaction and the liquids are upgraded to produce premium fuels. Biomass residues from the direct liquefaction, and optionally additional biomass is pyrolyzed using microwave pyrolysis to produce structured biochar, hydrogen for the liquefaction and upgrading, and CO2 for conversion to algae, including blue green algae (cyanobacteria) in a photobioreactor (PBR). Produced algae and diazotrophic microorganisms are used to produce a biofertilizer that also contains structured biochar. The structured biochar acts as a nucleation agent for the algae in the PBR, as a absorption agent to absorb inorganics from the biomass feed to direct liquefaction or from the liquids produced thereby, and as a water retention agent in the biofertilizer.

  • Patent number: RE48658
    Abstract: A decrease in an NOx removal or reduction rate at the time of filter regeneration is suppressed. To this end, provision is made for an NOx selective reduction catalyst, a filter arranged at the upstream side of the NOx selective reduction catalyst, an NH3 generation catalyst arranged at the upstream side of the NOx selective reduction catalyst to generate NH3 when the air fuel ratio of an exhaust gas is equal to or less than a stoichiometric air fuel ratio, a regeneration unit to carry out regeneration of the filter, and a generation unit to make the air fuel ratio of the exhaust gas equal to or less than the stoichiometric air fuel ratio, thereby causing NH3 to be generated in the NH3 generation catalyst, wherein the regeneration unit inhibits the regeneration of the filter until the generation of NH3 by the generation unit is completed.
