  • Patent number: 10722833
    Abstract: A process is described for removing halogen compounds, particularly chlorine compounds, from a process fluid, comprising the steps of (i) passing a process fluid containing hydrogen halide over a first sorbent to remove hydrogen halide and generate a hydrogen halide depleted process fluid and then, (ii) passing the hydrogen halide depleted process fluid over a second different sorbent to remove organic halide compounds therefrom. A purification system suitable for removing hydrogen halide and organic halide compounds from process fluids is also described.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10360107
    Abstract: A method for execution by a resource allocation module includes facilitating migration of a first set of encoded data slices stored at a storage unit for decommissioning to a newly commissioned storage unit, and facilitating migration of a remaining set of encoded data slices stored at the storage unit for decommissioning as foster encoded data slices to at least one other storage unit. For each foster encoded data slice, it is determined whether to facilitate migration of the foster encoded data slice to the newly commissioned storage unit. When determining to facilitate the migration of the foster encoded data slice, the migration of the foster encoded data slice to the newly commissioned storage unit is facilitated. An association of the newly commissioned storage unit and identity of the foster encoded data slice is updated in response to detecting successful migration of the foster encoded data slice.
