Patents by Inventor John E. Stauffer

John E. Stauffer has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 10493397
    Abstract: Carbon dioxide is separated from flue gas by scrubbing the gas with an aqueous solution of ammonia and salt, and the CO2 is therefore released from the solution by heating. The scrubbing step is performed with a co-current stream of an aqueous solution of ammonia and a salt.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: April 30, 2018
    Date of Patent: December 3, 2019
    Inventor: John E. Stauffer
  • Patent number: 10293304
    Abstract: A process for the removal of CO2 from flue gases using a co-current flow absorption column followed by one or more serial osmotic filters. The permeate is heated to strip out the CO2. Both sides of the filters are fed back to the column input.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: December 8, 2017
    Date of Patent: May 21, 2019
    Inventor: John E. Stauffer
  • Patent number: 10199127
    Abstract: Fuel pellets for use as targets in thermonuclear fusion by inertial confinement are manufactured from a solid palladium core that contains deuterium tritium gases. The palladium core is covered with a tamper-ablator shell of heavy metal selected from the group including gold, platinum, and tungsten.
