  • Publication number: 20210185999
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a lighting device for reducing bird strikes and a method for reducing bird strikes in a wind farm. The lighting device includes an illuminator, and the illuminator emits red light with a wavelength of 620-750 mm. In the present disclosure, the red light with a wavelength of 620-750 mm is used as a light source of the lighting device to reduce the attraction to birds; therefore, strikes of birds on the position of the lighting device can be reduced, overcoming a longstanding technical prejudice that people have generally accepted that blue light is used as a light source for reducing bird strikes because the red light is easy to attract birds, which are too sensitive to the blue light to be attracted easily.

  • Publication number: 20200187536
    Abstract: The present invention provides table salts. The said table salts contains 50 to 600 mg/kg of strontium. The strontium-rich table salts provided by the present invention has significantly higher strontium content than traditional common table salts. As one of the essential trace elements, strontium plays an important role in human health. The said table salts provided by the present invention are rich in strontium, which can be assimilated by human body during taking the said table salts. Moreover, the strontium content in the table salts provided by the present invention ranges from 50 to 600 mg/kg, which enables human body to get enough strontium to meet human needs when taking normal amount of the said table salts daily.

  • Patent number: 9249437
    Abstract: Disclosed is a process for preparing biodiesel from renewable oil and fat catalyzed by lipase with online dehydration. The method uses a short chain alcohol ROH as an acyl-acceptor, and utilizes a lipase as the catalyst to catalyze transesterification reaction of oil and fat feedstock with said short chain alcohol, so as to synthesize biodiesel; and online dehydration with a membrane or a molecular sieve is carried out during the whole process or part of the reaction process. Such online dehydration process greatly simplifies the operation procedure, and provides good economic and environmental benefits.
