  • Publication number: 20180297871
    Abstract: A composition for in situ remediation of soil and groundwater contaminated with hydrocarbons. The composition includes an adsorbent, such as activated carbon, capable of adsorbing the hydrocarbons. The composition also includes a sulfate-containing compound that releases sulfate over a period of time, e.g., a time-release compound that may include calcium sulfate. The composition includes a nutrient system for promoting growth of facultative anaerobes, in the soil or provided in the composition itself. In some embodiments, the nutrient system includes a sulfide scavenging agent such as iron sulfate. In the same or other embodiments, the nutrient system includes at least one of a nitrogen source and a phosphorous source.

  • Publication number: 20140228329
    Abstract: It has been found that administering 25-hydroxy vitamin D3 to ruminants helps to eliminate or at least reduce the need for supplemental inorganic P in the diets while maintaining milk production or growth performance. Furthermore, the excretion of P with the manure will be reduced and thus a positive effect on the environment will be achieved. Thus one aspect of this invention is a method of promoting phosphorus utilization in ruminants, comprising administering a sufficient amount of 25-hydroxy vitamin D3 to the animal. Another aspect of the invention relates to the use of a 25-hydroxy vitamin D3 for promoting or improving phosphorous utilization in ruminants and for reducing the excretion of P via faeces and urine.

  • Patent number: 5558500
    Abstract: A rotor assembly for a gas turbine engine has a disc with dovetail grooves and a plurality of blades with dovetail roots contoured to be received within the grooves. The inner surface of a flexible, high temperature, low compression set seal is bonded to the inner surface of each root portion. The outer surface of the seal has two portions inclined at an angle and spaced apart to define a surface portion for sealingly contacting the base of the groove. The longitudinal edges of the outer surface are curved to facilitate assembly.
