  • Publication number: 20190211352
    Abstract: Compositions and methods for controlling pests are provided. The methods involve transforming organisms with a nucleic acid sequence encoding an insecticidal protein. In particular, the nucleic acid sequences are useful for preparing plants and microorganisms that possess insecticidal activity. Thus, transformed bacteria, plants, plant cells, plant tissues and seeds are provided. Compositions are insecticidal nucleic acids and proteins of bacterial species. The sequences find use in the construction of expression vectors for subsequent transformation into organisms of interest including plants, as probes for the isolation of other homologous (or partially homologous) genes. The pesticidal proteins find use in controlling, inhibiting growth or killing Lepidopteran, Coleopteran, Dipteran, fungal, Hemipteran and nematode pest populations and for producing compositions with insecticidal activity.

  • Patent number: 9677155
    Abstract: The invention provides a method for recovering scandium from scandium-containing intermediate products, formed during hydrometallurgical processing of scandium-containing feed materials, including: (a) leaching of the scandium-containing intermediate products with a suitable acid at a controlled pH selected to maximize scandium extraction and minimize the co-extraction of impurities, (b) solid/liquid separation, to obtain a scandium-containing leach solution; (c) selective precipitation of the scandium at a controlled pH from the scandium-containing leach solution using a suitable base, (d) solid/liquid separation, to obtain an upgraded scandium concentrate and a barren solution for return to the hydrometallurgical process. A further upgraded scandium concentrate can be obtained by (e) alkaline leaching of the upgraded scandium concentrate for additional removal of impurities, and (f) solid/liquid separation to obtain a further upgraded scandium concentrate and impurities-containing base solution.

  • Publication number: 20170044777
    Abstract: Improvements in interlocking cushioned tiles from crumb rubber for the bulk of the tile to be made from recycled tire rubber with virgin material at interlocking areas of the tiles is disclosed. The use of recycled rubber reduces the amount of material in landfills. The density and size of the crumbs is variable to alter the amount of cushion for the tiles. Virgin material bonds easily together and the bonded virgin material has high integrity to keep the interlocking keyed elements together. The interconnection exists on all sides of the tiles and allows for a nearly infinite amount of tiles that can be connected to cover small and large areas. The connection details are essentially lollipop type interconnection male and female members. The interlocking cushioned tiles further include a drain and area for wiring to run under the tiles.

  • Publication number: 20130143455
    Abstract: Improvements in a warning mat are with a mesh reinforcement disclosed. The improvements include using recycled tire rubber allows for use of a material that is not used in a landfill and the warning mat. The tires are chopped into fine pellets or strips, metal belting material is usually removed and the rubber is combined with a binding agent to recombine the rubber elements while still leaving some air spaces that improve the cushioning effect of the warning mat. A mesh reinforcement of typically expanded metal is sandwiched into the rubber particles to bond through the openings of the expanded metal whereby encapsulating the mesh reinforcement within the warning mat. The mesh reinforcement is extremely dimensionally stable and maintains the dimensions of the warning mat. Fairly large sections of warning mat can be fabricated for transportation and installation.
