|20150247249||SIDE STREAM REMOVAL OF IMPURITIES IN ELECTROLYSIS SYSTEMS - A side stream subsystem can be used to remove impurity species from the recirculating alkali metal chloride solution in certain electrolysis systems. Silicon and/or aluminum species can be removed via precipitation after introducing an alkali metal hydroxide and magnesium chloride in a side stream line in the subsystem. The invention can allow for a substantial reduction in raw material and capital costs.||09-03-2015|
|20150247218||HYDROMETALLURGICAL PROCESS USING MULTI-STAGE NANOFILTRATION - Nanofiltration can be used to improve a hydrometallurgical process in which valuable metal is extracted from ore or tailings by leaching with a suitable lixiviant. The process requires at least two nanofiltration sub-systems in which raffinate from a solvent extraction process is treated in a nanofiltration subsystem, after which permeate therefrom is combined with a pregnant solution stream and is treated in a second nanofiltration sub-system. This arrangement can lead to advantages in the amount of lixiviant recovered, in the raw materials required, in the effluent produced, in the size of plant, and in overall cost.||09-03-2015|
|20150090586||SURFACE MODIFIED STAINLESS STEEL CATHODE FOR ELECTROLYSER - Sodium chlorate is produced industrially via electrolysis of brine and is thus an energy intensive process. An improved cathode for this and other industrial processes is a low nickel content stainless steel whose surface has been suitably modified. With an appropriate amount of surface roughening, the cathode provides for improved overvoltages during electrolysis while still maintaining corrosion resistance.||04-02-2015|
|20120280411||Liquid Distribution Trough For Use In Towers in Sulphuric Acid And Carbon Capture Plants - A liquid distribution trough contained within a tower for the purpose of mass or thermal exchange between at least a first liquid and a second fluid; the trough having an upper section and a lower section; the lower section for receiving the first liquid; a horizontal dividing member separating the upper section from the lower section and having at least one dividing member portion defining an aperture to allow for passage of the liquid fluid from the lower section to the upper section; a feed conduit means in communication with the lower section to provide feed first liquid flow to the lower section; the lower section having at least one inlet portion defining a liquid inlet in communication with the feed conduit means; and a first baffle adjacent the inlet portion operably impacted by the first liquid flow and to hinder preferential flow along the walls of the trough and the dividing member. The trough and tower are of particular value in a sulphuric acid plant and a carbon dioxide capture plant.||11-08-2012|
|20120152759||PERCHLORATE REMOVAL FROM CONCENTRATED SALT SOLUTIONS USING AMPHOTERIC ION-EXCHANGE RESINS - A process for reducing the concentration of perchlorate in an aqueous concentrated multi-component salt solution comprising treating the salt solution with an amphoteric ion-exchange resin to provide an adsorbed perchlorate and multi anion-containing resin and a perchlorate depleted solution; and removing the perchlorate depleted solution. The multi-anion are selected from chloride, chlorate, perchlorate, sulphate, and dichromate, present in electrolytic processes for the production of sodium chlorate.||06-21-2012|
