|PCT/GB2013/051429||ASTON UNIVERSITY||MAKKAWI, Yassir|
The present invention relates to a process for the thermochemical conversion of feedstock, comprising heating the feedstock to a thermochemical conversion temperature in a reaction chamber to produce one or more products of thermochemical conversion of the feedstock. Heating the feedstock to the thermochemical conversion temperature comprises: flowing heat carrier particles through a focal zone of a solar concentrator to heat the heat carrier particles; and supplying the heated heat carrier particles to the reaction chamber to heat the feedstock to said thermochemical conversion temperature. The invention also relates to a method for removing carbon dioxide and/or sulphur compounds from a mixture of gases including carbon dioxide and/or sulphur compounds The method comprises: contacting the mixture of gases with sorption particles in a gas cleaning zone, to remove at least a portion of the carbon dioxide and/or sulphur compounds from the mixture by chemisorption to the sorption particles, thereby producing reacted sorption particles; and regenerating the sorption particles by flowing the reacted sorption particles through a focal zone of a solar concentrator to heat the sorption particles to a regeneration temperature.
|10.||WO||WO/2013/182844 - ANTENNA CONFIGURATION FOR USE IN A MOBILE COMMUNICATION DEVICE||12.12.2013||
|PCT/GB2013/051478||UCL BUSINESS PLC||TONG, Kin-Fai|
The antenna configuration disclosed herein can be used in a mobile telecommunications device to provide three-dimensional, orthogonal polarisation. The antenna configuration comprises a half mode substrate integrated waveguide (HMSIW) antenna, a first thick-slot antenna and a second thick-slot antenna. The HMSIW antenna comprises two parallel conductive plates separated by a dielectric. The HMSIW antenna has a substantially rectangular shape comprising a first edge, a second edge substantially perpendicular to the first edge and connected to the first edge by a first corner, a third edge opposing and substantially parallel to the first edge and connected to the second edge by a second corner, and a fourth edge opposing and substantially parallel to the second edge and connected to the first edge by a third corner and to the third edge by a fourth corner. The first and second edges are open for radiation. The first thick-slot antenna includes a first dielectric strip extending from the third corner in a direction substantially parallel to and collinear with the first edge and away from the first corner. The second thick-slot antenna includes a second dielectric strip extending from the second corner in a direction substantially parallel to and collinear with the second edge and away from the first corner. The two parallel plates of the I IMS1W antenna lie in a plane defined by the first and second dielectric strips. The first thick-slot antenna is responsible for linear polarisation in a direction parallel to the first edge, the second thick-slot antenna is responsible for linear polarisation in a direction parallel to the second edge, and the HMSIW antenna is responsible for linear polarisation in a direction perpendicular to the parallel conductive plates of the HMSIW antenna.
