  • Publication number: 20220173421
    Abstract: An elevated target amount of electrolyte is used to initially fill a molten carbonate fuel cell that is operated under carbon capture conditions. The increased target electrolyte fill level can be achieved in part by adding additional electrolyte to the cathode collector prior to start of operation. The increased target electrolyte fill level can provide improved fuel cell performance and lifetime when operating a molten carbonate fuel cell at high current density with a low-CO2 content cathode input stream and/or when operating a molten carbonate fuel cell at high CO2 utilization.

  • Patent number: 11225611
    Abstract: Disclose is an online analyzer to monitor conversion of a biofeedstock in a first hydrotreating stage to avoid catalyst poisoning in a subsequent stage. An example method of processing a biofeedstock may comprise hydrotreating the biofeedstock by reaction with hydrogen to form a hydrotreated biofeedstock. The method may further comprise monitoring conversion of the biofeedstock in the hydrotreating with an online analyzer.

  • Publication number: 20210262995
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to methods for compositional analysis of algal biomass, specifically weight percent elemental composition. In at least one embodiment, a method for compositional analysis of an algae sample includes flash combusting a first portion of the algae sample to provide a carbon wt %, a hydrogen wt %, and a nitrogen weight %. The method includes pyrolysing a second portion of the algae sample to provide an oxygen wt %. The method includes scanning a third portion of the algae sample using x-ray fluorescence to provide an elemental intensity. The method includes normalizing the elemental intensity using the carbon wt %, the hydrogen wt %, the nitrogen wt %, and/or the oxygen wt %.

  • Patent number: 9780505
    Abstract: The present invention provides a Type-C-based USB connector capable of transmitting large current. Since the lower ground terminal and the lower power signal terminal both are of tear structures, and the ground base of the lower ground terminal, the power signal base of the lower power signal terminal, the main body of the lower ground terminal and the main body of the lower power signal terminal are all widened parts, the active areas of the ground terminal and the power signal terminal are larger, which improves the ability and reliability to transmit large current, thus solving the technical problem that the temperature would be much too high when large current are transmitted. With the present invention, it is possible to improve reliability and operation ease of the product for transmitting large current.

  • Publication number: 20110152073
    Abstract: A method for the start-up of a process for the epoxidation of ethylene comprising: initiating an epoxidation reaction by reacting a feed gas composition containing ethylene, and oxygen, in the presence of an epoxidation catalyst at a temperature of about 180° C. to about 210° C.; adding to the feed gas composition about 0.05 ppm to about 2 ppm of moderator; increasing the first temperature to a second temperature of about 240° C. to about 250° C., over a time period of about 12 hours to about 60 hours; and maintaining the second temperature for a time period of about 50 hours to about 150 hours.
