  • Publication number: 20200154360
    Abstract: The subject disclosure is directed towards a background transfer service that provides platform-level support for third party applications to queue data transfers to run in the background, including when the application is not running in the foreground. Applications may thus perform downloading and uploading tasks in the background; however the background transfer service manages the data transfer requests so as to limit each background application's ability to interfere with foreground application operations, that is, by controlling resource usage according to one or more policies.

  • Patent number: 9895676
    Abstract: Generally, regenerable, encapsulated metal oxide catalysts comprising a ceramic matrix and metal catalysts may be used to convert alkanes to alkenes. The encapsulated metal oxide catalyst may be tailored to produce a variety of alkenes including ethylene, butylene, and propylene. Further, the encapsulated metal oxide catalysts advantageously allow for regeneration and reactant recovery for cost effective and environmentally friendly processes.

  • Patent number: 9139459
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a process for removing naphthenic acid and/or naphthenic compounds from an aqueous solution. The process comprises one or more of the steps of: (a) feeding an aqueous solution comprising a constituent selected from the group consisting of naphthenic aldehyde, naphthenic alcohol, naphthenic acid, and combinations thereof, into a mix tank; (b) feeding an oxidizing agent into the mix tank forming a reactant mixture; (c) mixing the reactant mixture in the mix tank; (d) coagulating the reactant mixture with a polyvalent metallic electrode forming metallic naphthenate particles; (e) flocculating the metallic naphthenate particles forming floc; (f) sparging to float the floc to the surface of the aqueous solution; and (g) removing the floc from the aqueous solution. A system for removing naphthenic acid and/or naphthenic compounds from an aqueous solution is also disclosed herein.

  • Patent number: 9102582
    Abstract: A method of making alcohols involves forming of alcohol esters from liquid alkane halides and a solution of metallic salts of organic acids to produce gaseous alcohol esters for reaction with magnesium or metal hydroxides to form the alcohol and the metal salt of the organic acids. In an improvement method liquid phase alcohol esters instead of gaseous alcohol esters are produced from liquid alkane halides and a solution of metal salts of organic acids whose alkane esters are less soluble in water than that of the alkane halide and treating of the alcohol ester formed with magnesium or metal hydroxides to form the alcohol and the metal salt of the organic acids.

  • Publication number: 20140319078
    Abstract: A process for removing urea from an aqueous solution is disclosed herein, the process comprises the steps of: feeding an aqueous solution comprising urea into a mix tank; feeding hydrogen peroxide into the mix tank; feeding at least one soluble catalyst into the mix tank separately from the hydrogen peroxide feed; mixing the aqueous solution comprising urea, hydrogen peroxide, and the at least one soluble catalyst in the mix tank, forming a reactant mixture; and oxidizing the urea in the reactant mixture yielding CO2, N2, and H2O. The soluble catalyst is selected from a group of catalysts that when mixed with the hydrogen peroxide and urea causes the rate of reaction of the oxidation of the urea by hydrogen peroxide to accelerate; such as soluble iron salts. A system configured to carry out the process for removing urea from an aqueous solution is also disclosed herein. The disclosed process and system may be added to or incorporated with existing processes and systems for treating aqueous solutions.

  • Publication number: 20130256234
    Abstract: A system and process for treatment of sewage water from a building are disclosed. The system has a source of sewage water located inside or about a building, a sewage treatment apparatus to receive and treat sewage water from the sewage water source, and a storm drain connected to the sewage treatment apparatus—where the storm drain receives treated sewage water from the sewage treatment apparatus. The sewage treatment apparatus of the system has a sparger, an electrolytic cell, and an upper section. The sparger is below the upper section and above the electrolytic cell. The process includes receiving sewage water from a sewage water source, treating sewage water in the sewage treatment apparatus, and directing the treated sewage water to a storm drain.
