WO/2016/201563 PROCESS AND SYSTEM FOR REMOVING AMMONIUM FROM WASTEWATER||WO||22.12.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/050686||SALTWORKS TECHNOLOGIES INC.||YIN, Xiangchun|
Methods, systems, and techniques for removing ammonium from ammonia-containing water involve using a stack that has alternating product chambers and concentrate chambers for receiving ammonia-containing water and an acidic solution, respectively, with the chambers being bounded by alternating cation exchange membranes and proton permselective cation exchange membranes. Ammonium moves from the product chambers to the concentrate chambers across the CEMs and protons move from the concentrate chambers to the product chambers across the pCEMs when the stack is in use. An electrolyzer may also be used to convert the ammonium in the concentrate chambers into nitrogen.

WO/2016/190863 METHOD FOR DETERMINING FRACTURE PROPPANT SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION USING PASSIVE SEISMIC SIGNALS||WO||01.12.2016|
||PCT/US2015/032652||MICROSEISMIC, INC.||MCKENNA, Jonathan, P.|
A method for determining spatial distribution of proppant incudes using signals detected by seismic sensors disposed proximate a formation treated by pumping fracturing fluid containing the proppant. Origin time and spatial position of seismic events induced by pumping the fracturing fluid are determined. Volume and orientation of at least one fracture in the subsurface formation associated with each induced seismic event are determined. Spatial distribution of a volume of the pumped fracturing fluid is determined using the volume and orientation of each fracture. A length of ellipsoidal axes is selected using a surface defined by a selected fractional amount of the total volume of frac fluid pumped into the formation. Spatial distribution of the proppant is determined using proppant mass, specific gravity and expected proppant porosity in the fractures, and spatially distributing a volume of the fractures within an ellipsoid defined by the ellipsoidal axes.
