Title (EN) A METHOD AND AN APPARATUS FOR GATHERING VALUABLE FLOATING,DISSOLVED AND SUSPENDED SUBSTANCES FROM SEA WATER
(FR) METHODE ET APPAREIL DE RECUPERATION DE SUBSTANCES FLOTTANTES PRECIEUSES, EN SOLUTION ET EN SUSPENSION DANS L"EAU DE MER
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Method and apparatus for gathering valuable substances, such as uranium, gold, silver or the like from sea water. The features characterizing the invention are that the sea waves are caused, by using the energy thereof, to rush up a ramp (2) which leads the waves into a basin from above, which thereby is filled to a level (BY) higher than the external still-water surface (LY), the water quantity within the level difference ((Alpha)H) applying a hydrostatic pressure which brings the water in the basin to flow through one or several layers of filters (4) containing sorbing, ion-exchanging or bioactive mass, whereafter the water is directed back to the sea on a level lower than the upper edge of the ramp (2).
(FR)Methode et appareil de recuperation de substances precieuses telles que l"uranium, l"or, l"argent ou autres substances de l"eau de mer. Les vagues sont amenees en utilisant leur energie a monter une rampe (2) qui les mene dans un bassin, qui se remplit jusqu"a un niveau (BY) superieur au niveau de la surface exterieure des eaux tranquilles (LY), la quantite d"eau definie par la difference de niveau ((Alpha)H) applique une pression hydrostatique qui amene l"eau dans le bassin a s"ecouler au travers d"une ou plusieurs couches de filtres (4) contenant une masse de sorption, d"echange d"ions ou unw biomasse, apres quoi l"eau est renvoyee a la mer a un niveau inferieur au bord superieur de la rampe (2).
