||PCT/CA2014/050069||EXPANDER ENERGY INC.||KRESNYAK, Steve|
A bitumen and heavy oil upgrading process and system is disclosed for the synthesis of hydrocarbons, an example of which is synthetic crude oil (SCO). The process advantageously avoids the waste attributed to residuum and/or petcoke formation which has a dramatic effect on the yield of hydrocarbon material generated. The process integrates Fischer-Tropsch technology with gasification and hydrogen rich gas stream generation. The hydrogen rich gas generation is conveniently effected using singly or in combination a hydrogen source, a hydrogen rich vapour from hydroprocessing and the Fischer-Tropsch process, a steam methane reformer (SMR) and autothermal reformer (ATR) or a combination of SMR/ATR. The feedstock for upgrading is distilled and the bottoms fraction is gasified and converted in a Fischer-Tropsch reactor. A resultant hydrogen lean syngas is then exposed to the hydrogen rich gas stream to optimize the formation of, for example, the synthetic crude oil.

||PCT/CA2014/050175||HYDROGENICS CORPORATION||JOOS, Nathaniel, Ian|
This specification describes a system and method for controlling the voltage produced by a fuel cell. The system involves providing a bypass line between an air exhaust from the fuel cell and an air inlet of the fuel cell. At least one controllable device is configured to allow the flow rate through the bypass line to be altered. A controller is provided to control the controllable device. The method involves varying the rate of recirculation of air exhaust to air inlet so as to provide a desired change in fuel cell voltage.

||PCT/CA2014/050343||PASSWORDBOX INC.||CARON, Etienne|
A method and process for users to have secure access to multiple mobile, embedded or web based applications, is provided whereby each requires different authentication, and access to such applications is automated through the use of a single authenticating and authorizing software; the software thereby securely managing the individual authorizations and, in so doing, the authentication required by any individual application independent of the device used. To protect against any intrusion and manipulation whilst assuring that only legitimate user(s) that are properly authenticated have access to their applications the method secures the secret information required to access these applications and minimizes exposure to any sensitive information. Moreover, any secrets that protect information are themselves secured and made strong and the means of access is simplified and automated as much as possible whilst safeguarding security and confidentiality.

||WO||WO/2014/186886 - SYSTEM AND METHOD HAVING TRANSPARENT COMPOSITE MODEL FOR TRANSFORM COEFFICIENTS||27.11.2014||
||PCT/CA2014/050439||YANG, En-Hui||YANG, En-Hui|
To better handle the flat tail phenomenon commonly seen in transform coefficients such as DCT coefficients, a system and method having a model dubbed a transparent composite model (TCM) are described. Given a sequence of transform coefficients, a TCM first separates the tail of the sequence from the main body of the sequence. A first distribution such as a uniform, truncated Laplacian, or truncated geometric distribution can be used to model transform coefficients in the flat tail while at least one parametric distribution (e.g. truncated Laplacian, generalized Gaussian (GG), and geometric distributions) can be used to model data in the main body. A plurality of boundary values can be used to bound a plurality of distribution models. The plurality of boundary values and other parameters of the TCM can be estimated via maximum likelihood (ML) estimation or greedy estimation.
