  • Patent number: 12006268
    Abstract: A method for preparing an ecological foamed ceramic from lepidolite filter mud whole waste belongs to the field of environmental protection and resource reuse. The ecological foamed ceramic with excellent properties can be prepared by using lepidolite filter mud as the main raw materials, including ball milling, homogenization, drying, material distribution, and heat treatment. The amount of lepidolite filter mud in the present invention accounts for more than 90%, which is a whole waste utilization and can achieve high-value utilization of bulk lepidolite filter mud. The present invention uses a composite foaming agent combined with a foaming technology and has the advantages of rapid foaming and controllable pore size compared with a single foaming agent. The ecological foamed ceramic prepared by the present invention meets the industrial standard of CJ/T 299-2008 “Artificial ceramic filter material for water treatment” and has potential application value in domestic sewage treatment.

  • Publication number: 20240153763
    Abstract: Systems and methods for growth of silicon carbide over a layer comprising graphene and/or hexagonal boron nitride, and related articles, are generally described. In some embodiments, a SiC film is fabricated over a layer comprising graphene and/or hexagonal boron nitride, which in turn is disposed over a substrate. The layer and/or the substrate may be lattice-matched with the SiC film to reduce defect density in the SiC film. The fabricated SiC film may then be removed from the substrate via, for example, a stressor attached to the SiC film. In certain cases, the layer serves as a reusable platform for growing SiC films and also serves a release layer that allows fast, precise, and repeatable release at the layer surface.

  • Publication number: 20240141133
    Abstract: A method for recycling polyethylene terephthalate, including obtaining flakes of polyethylene terephthalate which are re-polymerized using heat and/or a chain extender combined with an anti-yellowing agent to yield an average molecular weight of at least 40,000 Da and a tunable intrinsic viscosity of approximately 0.5 dl/g to 0.8 dl/g. Polyethylene terephthalate pellets are produced having a color deviation of approximately 2.5 or less from the re-polymerized 100 percent post-consumer polyethylene terephthalate flakes as raw material for formation of polyethylene terephthalate products. When compared to available rPET bottles, CIELAB color values show indiscernible color differences with the high quality rPET produced. Consequently, the high-quality rPET pellets produced are capable manufacturing PET bottles with 100% PCR content and a high number of repeated recycling cycles.

  • Publication number: 20240113805
    Abstract: A communication method is applied to a communication system using a forward error correction (FEC) technology. In the communication method, a header field of a first data transmission unit sent by a transmit end apparatus may indicate a modulation manner of a second data transmission unit after the first data transmission unit, so that a receive end apparatus can determine, based on the header field of the received first data transmission unit, the modulation manner of the second data transmission unit after the first data transmission unit. Then, before FEC decoding is performed on the second data transmission unit, the receive end apparatus may complete demodulation of the second data transmission unit based on the determined modulation manner such that FEC decoding can be performed on a header field and a load field of the second data transmission.
