The disclosed embodiments provide a highly efficient, utility scale energy storage and retrieval system. The system is characterized by a chain of multiple rotating interconnected masses (8), a hollow toroid- shaped housing (1), plural pairs of permanent magnets (7, 11), magnets (7, 11) and coils (10) for the charging and discharging of electric energy and is operated by an automated control system. The mass (8) chain is fitted and rotating inside the housing (1), and the energy is stored into the rotational energy of the chain. The transformation of electrical energy into rotational energy or vice versa is carried out by using coil units (10). In order to minimize losses, the chain is magnetically levitating and a vacuum is pumped into the housing (1).

An improved ALD system usable for low vapor pressure liquid and sold precursors. The ALD system includes a precursor container and inert gas delivery elements configured to increase precursor vapor pressure within a precursor container by injecting an inert gas pulse into the precursor container while a precursor pulse is being removed to the reaction chamber. A controllable inert gas flow valve and a flow restrictor are disposed along an inert gas input line leading into the precursor container below its fill level. A vapor space is provided above the fill level. An ALD pulse valve is disposed along a precursor vapor line extending between the vapor space and the reaction chamber. Both valves are pulsed simultaneously to synchronously remove precursor vapor from the vapor space and inject inert gas into the precursor container below the fill level.
WO/2015/105989 COMBUSTION BOILER WITH PRE-DRYING FUEL CHUTE||WO||16.07.2015|
||PCT/US2015/010642||SULLIVAN, Eugene J.||SULLIVAN, Eugene J.|
A solid fuel boiler with one or more fuel chutes configured to pre-dry wet solid fuel prior to loading into a combustion chamber of the boiler, enabling higher thermal efficiencies and burning less fuel to produce the same steam quantity. The pre-drying fuel chutes pass through the boiler where hot combustion gases radiantly and convectively - heat the chute walls to dry the wet solid fuel by radiant, convective, and/or conductive heating. Agitator mechanisms or structures within the chute mix the fuel for uniform heating, break up clumps of wet fuel, regulate the speed of falling fuel, prevent sticking, dry the fuel by means of steam and/or hot air, transport and deliver a cooling medium while a chute is offline in an operating boiler, and suppress fire using steam injection. Fuel from the chute can flow into a fuel storage bin or directly into the combustion zone of the furnace.
