Patent No.: US7479215B2  Issued: 20/Jan/2009

Title: Mediated electrochemical oxidation of halogenated hydrocarbon waste materials

Applicant/Assignee: SCIMIST, INC

Application No.: 10/502324   Filing Date: 23/Jul/2004

Abstract:

A mediated electrochemical oxidation process is used to treat, oxidize and destroy halogenated hydrocarbon waste materials. The waste materials are introduced into an apparatus for contacting with an electrolyte containing the oxidized form of one or more reversible redox couples, at least one of which is produced electrochemically by anodic oxidation at the anode of an electrochemical cell. The oxidized forms of any other redox couples present are produced either by similar anodic oxidation or reaction with the oxidized form of other redox couples present and capable of affecting the required redox reaction.

The oxidized species of the redox couples oxidize the halogenated hydrocarbon waste molecules and are themselves converted to their reduced form, whereupon they are reoxidized by either of the aforementioned mechanisms and the redox cycle continues until all oxidizable waste species, including intermediate reaction products, have undergone the desired degree of oxidation.

Title: Mediated electrochemical oxidation of food waste materials

Applicant/Assignee: SCIMIST, INC

Application No.: 10/492017   Filing Date: 08/Apr/2004

Abstract:

A mediated electrochemical oxidation process is used to treat, oxidize and destroy food waste materials, such as manure, biological residue, hay, straw, animal byproducts, bones, horns, blood, biological items, pathological waste and combined waste. Food waste is introduced into an apparatus for contacting the waste with an electrolyte containing the oxidized form of one or more reversible redox couples, at least one of which is produced by anodic oxidation in an electrochemical cell. The oxidized species of the redox couples oxidize the organic waste molecules and are themselves converted to their reduced form, whereupon they are reoxidized by either of the aforementioned mechanisms and the redox cycle continues until all oxidizable waste species, including intermediate reaction products, have undergone the desired degree of oxidation.

The process takes place at temperatures between zero degrees centigrade and below the boiling point of the electrolyte.

Title: Mediated electrochemical oxidation of organic waste materials

Applicant/Assignee: SCIMST, INC

Abstract:

A mediated electrochemical oxidation process is used to treat and destroy organic waste materials. The materials are introduced into an apparatus containing an electrolyte having the oxidized form of one or more redox couples. The oxidized couples oxidize the organic waste materials and are converted into their reduced form. The reduced forms are reoxidized by electrochemical anodic oxidation in the anode compartment of an electrochemical cell or reaction with the oxidized form of other redox couples. The redox cycle continues until the desired degree of oxidation is reached. The process takes place at temperatures between ambient and approximately 100 DEG C., to avoid the formation of dioxins or furans. The oxidation process may be enhanced by the addition of reaction enhancements, such as: ultrasonic energy and/or ultraviolet radiation.

The invention relates to the synthesis of siloxane polymers containing self-complementary quadruple hydrogen bonding groups (4H-units). The resulting polymers show unique new characteristics that result from the reversible, physical interactions between the polysiloxane chains that are based on the (supramolecular) interactions between the 4H-units. The polysiloxanes in this invention show unprecedented bulk material properties and are used as gelling agents for silicone fluids. The resulting gels are clear and display good material properties, while having unparalleled high silicone fluid contents.

Title: Thread sealants with engineered fibers

Applicant/Assignee: HERCULES CHEMICAL COMPANY INCORPORATED HERCULES CHEMICAL COMPANY INC

Application No.: 11/402414   Filing Date: 11/Apr/2006

Abstract:

A sealant is provided that possesses many or all of the characteristics of conventional thread sealants, and allows application with improved smoothness and uniformity of application. Sealants in accordance with the invention utilize engineered fibers such as melamines like Basofill and polyaramids such as Kevlar in its composition. Engineered fibers offer consistency and uniformity that other previously used sealants lack. Engineered fibers can improve the gap filling characteristics of the sealant, as well as the resistance of the sealant to chemicals and high pressures. Engineered fibers tend to have very high strength and low density.

Title: Process and apparatus for the production of a detergent bar

Applicant/Assignee: UNILEVER HOME & PERSONAL CARE USA, DIVISION OF CONOPCO., INC UNILEVER HOME & PERSONAL CARE USA DIVISION OF CONOPCO, INC

Application No.: 11/052442   Filing Date: 07/Feb/2005

Abstract:

In an apparatus and process for manufacturing a detergent bar, the bar comprises a first distinct zone comprising a first component and at least a second distinct zone comprising a second component. In an injection step, the first and second components are injected into the mold cavity via nozzle means having a first orifice through which the first component is injected. The second component is injected through a second orifice of the nozzle means. The first and second components solidify in the cavity to form the bar. The interface between the zones may be non-planar and/or such that the zones cannot be separated by a unidirectional cut. The first and second zones may respectively comprise detergent and a benefit agent. The first and second zones may differ in texture.
