  • Patent number: 8636968
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for separating gaseous emission pollutants from a scrubber by using a narrow band of UV light energy emitted from an LED light source. The method includes sweeping the evolved gas away from the flow of liquid containing the pollutant using a non-reactive gas. The pollutant can be CO2, NOx, SOx, or other pollutants. The method can operate on multiple pollutants the gas stream, using different banks of LEDs, specifically tuned for a certain pollutant.

  • Patent number: 8367026
    Abstract: A method for converting depleted uranium tetrafluoride (UF4) to triuranium octaoxide (U3O8), and producing sulfur tetrafluoride, using a two step process. The first step uses heat and a mixture of the uranium tetrafluoride and an alkaline compound, either an alkaline oxide or an alkaline hydroxide, to produce U3O8 and a water-soluble metal halide. The second step uses heat, sulfur and a halogen to produce sulfur tetrafluoride and triuranium octaoxide.

  • Patent number: 8231855
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for an energy-efficient improvement in the production of sulfur hexafluoride, and eliminates the generation of other byproducts. The process is an oxidative fluorination of sulfur tetrafluoride by CoF3/F2, where CoF3 is solid stationary phase that can be regenerated.

  • Patent number: 8163262
    Abstract: Presented is a method for Batch or continuous production of nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) using direct fluorination of organic solution of trimethylsilylamines at low temperatures. Fluorine gas reacts with a solution of tris(trimethylsilyl)amine or bis(trimethylsilyl)amine in a suitable reactor to produce NF3 in a continuous flow process. The crude product can be purified by a channeling the crude process flow through a scrubber to remove reactive byproducts and by cryogenic trapping of other non reactive byproducts in the process flow. Temperatures in the reaction and storage vessels are maintained to control the reaction products based on thermodynamics of the process and products. NF3 is liquefiable at ?126 degree Centigrade, and may be collected and used in other processes. The method also produce NF3 as a continuous gas flow process where fluorine is channeled to contact micro droplet suspensions of bis(trimethylsilyl)amines in sulfur hexafluoride.

  • Publication number: 20100022804
    Abstract: Shown is an improved method of adding fluorine atoms to aromatic rings, using microwave energy application and simultaneous cooling to enhance the fluorination process. The result is an energy efficient method of microwave-assisted halogen exchange (HALEX) reactions involving chloroaromatics and fluorinating agents, with the result being the addition of fluorine atoms into aromatic rings.
