||WO||WO/2015/010179 - METHOD OF REDUCING CHLORIDE AND POTASSIUM ION CONCENTRATIONS IN A PULP MILL CHEMICAL RECOVERY SYSTEM||29.01.2015||
||PCT/CA2013/050579||NORAM ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTORS LTD.||CHAN, Christopher, W.|
A method of reducing chloride and potassium ion concentration in a pulp mill chemical recovery cycle, in which electrostatic precipitator ash is produced in a recovery boiler. A mixture (16) of the ash (10) and water (12) is separated into a first process stream (20) enriched in chloride and potassium and a second process stream (22) having reduced chloride and potassium, by means of a primary chloride and potassium removal system (15) that separates chloride and potassium from sodium sulfate and sodium carbonate based on solubility differences. The first process stream (20) is treated in an amphoteric resin bed (28) to remove chloride, producing a third process stream (30) having reduced chloride. The third process stream is treated in a cation exchange resin bed (32) to remove potassium, producing a fourth process stream (34) having reduced potassium. The amphoteric resin is regenerated by flowing water (40) through the amphoteric resin bed (28) and producing a fifth process stream (42) enriched in chloride. The cation exchange resin is regenerated by flowing a fluid through the cation exchange resin bed (32) and producing a sixth process stream (46, 48) enriched in potassium. In another embodiment, the positions of the amphoteric and cation exchange resin beds are reversed.

||PCT/CA2014/050701||4233999 CANADA INC.||KHALID, Najeeb Ashraf|
A controllable current driver integrated circuit is provided. The controllable current driver includes a multitude of different current value output transistors digitally controlled and combined to provide a controllable current output. The different current value transistors are each provided as single lithographic devices on a same substrate in proximity to each other having weighted drain and source areas corresponding to the different current values. The weighted drivers reduce the implementation area required on the semiconductor die for decoding and driving the output transistors substantially increasing the density of current drivers which can be integrated in one semiconductor die.

A design for manhole frames is provided which provide one or more handholds near the entrance to the manhole so that the ladder rungs can be made lower and the access space at the entrance to the manhole thereby increased. The handhold can be cast into the cover- supporting lip, or can be a movable handle which is below the level of the manhole when not in use or extended above ground level when in use.
||WO||WO/2015/010198 - PROCESS FOR DEPOSITING METAL ON A SUBSTRATE||29.01.2015||
||PCT/CA2014/050675||NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL OF CANADA||ZHANG, Zhiyi|
A process for depositing a metal on a substrate involves the use of two reduction reactions in a bottom-up based tandem manner starting from a substrate surface and working upward. A first reduction reaction starts on the substrate surface at ambient temperature, and a second reduction reaction, which is initiated by the reaction heat of the first reduction reaction, occurs in a reactive ink solution film coated on top, which becomes solid after the reaction. Gas and other small molecules generated from the reduction reactions, and the solvent, can readily escape through the upper surface of the film before the solid metal layer is formed or during post-treatment, with no or few voids left in the metal film. Thus, the process can be used to form highly conductive films and features at ambient temperature on various substrates.
