  • Patent number: 10161378
    Abstract: Disclosed is an energy recovering system having a first pump for pumping a fluid from a first lower level at a first lower potential energy to a second higher level corresponding to a second higher potential energy, and a turbine being located at a third level corresponding to a third potential energy being smaller than said second higher potential energy, wherein the turbine is fluidly connected to the first pump by a connecting pipe such that the fluid can be fed by the first pump via the connecting pipe from the first lower level and via the second higher level to the turbine located at the third level, where the turbine is connected to the first pump in such a way that a recovery-energy recovered from the fluid by passing through the turbine (T) is used for a drive of the concurrently operating first pump.

  • Patent number: 9168506
    Abstract: An additive for hydroconversion processes includes a solid organic material having a particle size of between about 0.1 and about 2,000 ?m, a bulk density of between about 500 and about 2,000 kg/m3, a skeletal density of between about 1,000 and about 2,000 kg/m3 and a humidity of between 0 and about 5 wt %. Methods for preparation and use of the additive are also provided. By the use of the additive of the present invention, the hydroconversion process can be performed at high conversion level.

  • Patent number: 8555204
    Abstract: A computer software program, method and system has a data visualization scheme in the form of plural identifiable virtual characters in a familiar virtual environment that is relevant for the characters and in which the characters act in the context of the environment and in a manner that is indicative of the data or data set portrayed by each character. From the actions and interactions of the virtual characters in the context of the virtual environment, information about the nature and interactions of the data and data sets is quickly and intuitively appreciated by a viewer.

  • Patent number: 7476043
    Abstract: A fingertip mountable writing instrument comprising a housing having an exterior wall and interior wall with a cavity therebetween forming an ink reservoir in fluid communication through an ink egress port with a ball point tip. The housing further has an elastomeric element positioned along the top rim for gripping a user's finger once inserted. Frictional elements on the exterior housing wall aid the user in turning pages without having to remove the fingertip pen.
