  • Patent number: 11319493
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method for catalytic conversion of waste plastic into liquid fuel. The method comprises thermally decomposing the waste plastic at a temperature in the range of 350 to 650° C. and under a pressure in the range of 0.0010 psi to 0.030 psi, to obtain a gaseous stream. The gaseous stream is further subjected to four stage sequential cooling to a temperature in the range of ?5 to ?15° C. to obtain a gas-liquid mixture comprising a gaseous fraction and a liquid fraction. The gas-liquid mixture is fed to the gas-liquid separator to obtain the gaseous fraction comprising C1 to C4 hydrocarbons and the liquid fraction comprising liquid fuel. The method of the present disclosure is simple, economical and energy efficient, which provides a high value liquid fuel with enhanced yield.

    Abstract: The invention relates to an epoxidized composition and a process for producing the same. The epoxidized composition is useful as a plasticizer for thermoplastics such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and other polymers. The process includes forming a blend containing one or more fatty acid esters and one or more bio-based oils; and epoxidizing the blend to form the epoxidized composition. This process has several advantages over a process of forming a blend of already epoxidized fatty acid esters and epoxidized bio-based oils.

  • Publication number: 20130165548
    Abstract: Sizing compositions to size fibers or particles used in plastic composites are described. The compositions may include a solution with a polymerization compound selected from: (a) at least one non-isocyanate-containing polymerization initiator (PI) for initiating the polymerization of caprolactam monomers; or (b) at least one precursor for a non-isocyanate-containing PI for initiating the polymerization of caprolactam monomers. Methods of making the sizing the composition, as well as methods of making reinforced thermoplastic composites from sized fibers or particles, are also described.

  • Publication number: 20130157033
    Abstract: A nucleating system for a thermoplastic composition that contains a polyarylene sulfide is provided. The nucleating system includes a combination of an inorganic crystalline compound and an aromatic amide oligomer. The present inventors have discovered that the combination of these different types of nucleating agents result in excellent crystallization properties (e.g., rate of crystallization). Due to the improved crystallization rate, the thermoplastic composition can be molded at lower temperatures to still achieve the same degree of crystallization. In addition to minimizing the energy requirements of the molding operating, the use of lower temperatures can also decrease the production of “flash” normally associated with high temperature molding operations. The composition may also possess good viscosity properties that allow it to be readily molded into parts of a variety of different shapes and sizes.

  • Publication number: 20130123390
    Abstract: An adhesive for a porous material is made of a curing agent composition and a principal component including an epoxy resin. The curing agent composition for the epoxy resin adhesive includes a water-based polyaminoamide curing agent or a water-based polyamide curing agent, having both a hydrophilic group and lipophilic group, tertiary amine, and water. The water-based polyaminoamide curing agent or the water-based polyamide curing agent is a condensate which is produced via a condensation reaction of polyaminoamide or polyamide with a dimer acid or trimer acid. The adhesive for a porous material precluding formaldehyde indicates a long pot life while demonstrating high adhesion in a short period of time.
