  • Publication number: 20140371496
    Abstract: The present invention provides an improved method for solvent liquefaction of biomass to produce liquid products such as transportation fuel. The method uses a novel solvent combination that promotes liquefaction relatively quickly, and it reduces the need to transport large amounts of hydrogen or hydrogen-carrying solvents. It operates at lower pressure than previous methods, does not require a catalyst or hydrogen gas or CO input, and provides very high conversion of biomass into a bio-oil that can be further processed in a petroleum refinery. It also beneficially provides a way to recycle a portion of the crude liquefaction product for use as part of the solvent combination for the biomass liquefaction reaction.

  • Patent number: 8911508
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a modifier for modifying a polyester fiber as well as a preparation method and application of the same. The modifier contains ethylene glycol, two-hydroxy-end polyether, dimethyl terephthalate, two-polyether-end modified organosilicon and a metal acetate catalyst. A two-step continuous production process is adopted. The first step is esterification; that is, ethylene glycol, two-hydroxy-end polyether, dimethyl terephthalate, and two-polyether-end organosilicon are added into a reactor, and have an esterification reaction in the presence of the catalyst. In the second step, the materials produced by the esterification are transported to a polymerizer, and have a polymerization reaction under the conditions of high temperature, vacuum and catalyst, producing the high molecular weight polyester/polyether/organosilicon terpolymer with a molecular weight of 1000˜50000 as the desired modifier.
