  • Patent number: 9327971
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for treating liquid and/or pasty hydrocarbon materials, more particularly fuel oil, more particularly still heavy fuel oil, in which the hydrocarbon materials are firstly brought to the autoignition temperature, then mixed with a controlled amount of oxygen in order to obtain a first gaseous stream and a non-gaseous mass, more particularly a solid mass, comprising solid hydrocarbon molecules which are then oxidized by a gaseous stream of CO2 in order to obtain a second gaseous stream. The first and second gaseous streams are then mixed in order to obtain a third gaseous stream comprising carbon monoxide having a high energy value. The invention also relates to a system implementing the process according to the invention and an installation implementing such a system.

  • Patent number: 7644752
    Abstract: A regulating heat exchange and cooling method and system for monitoring and controlling the temperatures of walls subjected to high temperatures. The system is used to cool the inner wall of a thermal system having a double wall, the inner wall being subjected to temperatures equal to or greater than the physical capacity thereof. The system includes a network of tubes which is independent of the thermal system to be cooled. The tubes contain pressurized cooling water which circulates therethrough. The tubes have nozzles which spray and project water in the form of solid cones against the inner wall, the nozzles being controlled by adjustable-flow valves. The network of tubes forms an integral part of the outer wall of the thermal system to be cooled and the system also includes elements for maintaining the water projection area defined by the inner and outer walls in a vacuum condition.

  • Publication number: 20090320369
    Abstract: A method of generating energy from a gas flow, called the initial flow, including water vapour, the method including the deoxidation of at least some of the water vapour by passing the initial gas flow through a layer of material at high temperature, called the thermal base layer, essentially including high-temperature carbon, the deoxidation making it possible to obtain a first gas flow comprising hydrogen obtained by the reaction of the water vapour with the carbon elements. The initial flow may be a gas flow that has served for the treatment of a charge of wood. The hydrogen obtained constitutes an energy source and may then be used to produce energy by a gas boiler, a gas turbine, a fuel cell, a gas-powered engine, a turboalternator, or the like.
