  • Patent number: 10266758
    Abstract: A proppant for a well treatment fluid includes discrete particles of a substrate, such as sand, coated with a resin comprising a product of the Maillard reaction between a carbohydrate and an amine and/or an ammonium compound. Different resins, in particular thermoplastic or thermosetting resins, may be blended with Maillard reaction products or applied to the substrate as separate layers. The proppant may be included in a fracturing fluid, which is injected into a subterranean formation and used to stimulate hydrocarbon production from the subterranean formation.

  • Patent number: 10150819
    Abstract: An aqueous dispersion of fructan-containing particles, wherein the D50 of the fructan-containing particles lies between 2 ?m and 50 ?m and the solids content of the aqueous dispersion lies between 61 wt. % and 80 wt. %. Also described is a process for the preparation of an aqueous dispersion of fructan-containing particles comprising: bringing fructan and water together to form a mixture; optionally hydrolyzing a portion of the fructans in the mixture, such that at the end of this step between 5 wt. % and 25 wt. % of all fructans in the mixture are essentially non-soluble at room temperature; optionally bring the mixture into contact with a purification agent, followed by removal of the purification agent from the mixture; and concentrating the mixture such that the solids content lies between 61 and 80%.

  • Patent number: 10011855
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a fractionated coupled apparatus for saccharifying biomass and a method for saccharifying biomass using the apparatus, and more particularly, to a fractionated coupled apparatus and method for saccharifying biomass, in which biomass mixed with enzyme is first saccharified in a single-tubular plug-flow reactor (PFR) unit, and then distributed into and saccharified in a second multi-tubular PFR unit comprising 2-100 PFRs, each having a diameter smaller than that of the single-tubular PFR unit. According to the present invention, biomass is first saccharified in a PFR having a relatively large diameter, and then distributed into and saccharified in PFRs having a relatively small diameter. Thus, a high concentration of a sugar compound can be obtained without having to use an additional mixer.

  • Patent number: 9631209
    Abstract: A method for fermenting stalks of the Poaceae family is provided. This includes sugarcane, sorghum and maize stalks. This method compresses stalks between rollers to between 20% and 90% of their diameter while the stalks are submerged in an aqueous reagent solution. This fractures the stalks in the axial direction without significant loss of juice while simultaneously pulling the reagent solution into the resulting network of cracks in the parenchyma tissue. In some variants, the aqueous reagent solution contains fermentation organisms, the sugars diffuse from the parenchyma cells, come into contact with the fermentation organisms located in the cracks in the stalks and produce ethanol and lactic acid within the stalks. In some variants, combinations of enzymes, acids and Fenton reagent in the aqueous reagent solution diffuse into and degrade the lignocellulosic matrix in the stalks.

  • Publication number: 20130267001
    Abstract: The invention provides processes for the extraction of sugar from sugar-bearing plant material such as sugar cane. Accordingly, in one aspect of the invention, a process for extracting sugar from sugar-bearing plant material comprises contacting the sugar-bearing plant material with an extractant solution comprising water and a surfactant; and separating the extractant solution from the sugar-bearing plant material. One example of a suitable surfactant is a poly(alkylene oxide) polymer such as a poly(propylene oxide) polymer, a poly(ethylene oxide) polymer, or a poly(propylene oxide)/(ethylene oxide) copolymer.

  • Patent number: 8551250
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of extracting a carbohydrate from a carbohydrate juice, said method comprising the steps of: a) providing an adsorbent having unsaturated hydrocarbon groups exposed on its surface wherein said groups are capable of adsorbing a carbohydrate to the (internal) surface of the adsorbent by CH/p interaction, and optionally in addition by hydrogen bonding; b) contacting said raw carbohydrate juice with said adsorbent under conditions by which said carbohydrate is adsorbed to said adsorbent by CH/p interaction, and c) desorbing said carbohydrate from said adsorbent by increasing the temperature of the carbohydrate-adsorbent complex.

  • Publication number: 20130216693
    Abstract: A food product comprises an oligosaccharide composition that is digestion resistant or slowly digestible. The oligosaccharide composition can be produced by a process that comprises producing an aqueous composition that comprises at least one oligosaccharide and at least one monosaccharide by saccharification of starch, membrane filtering the aqueous composition to form a monosaccharide-rich stream and an oligosaccharide-rich stream, and recovering the oligosaccharide-rich stream. Alternatively, the oligosaccharide composition can be produced by a process that comprises heating an aqueous feed composition that comprises at least one monosaccharide or linear saccharide oligomer, and that has a solids concentration of at least about 70% by weight, to a temperature of at least about 40° C.
