||PCT/IB2014/067286||UNIVERSIDADE FEDERAL DE MINAS GERAIS - UFMG||MAGELA DE LIMA, Geraldo|
The present invention describes a cyclic method which efficiently integrates CO2 capture
and the conversion thereof into carbonates, with low energy consumption. The method uses industrial and urban waste rich in cations of metals selected from the group M, which comprises Ca2+, Mg2+, Ba2+, Sr2+, Pb2+, Fe2+ and Cd2+, to produce carbonates of the respective cations and regenerate
the reagents. The main features of this invention are the complete regeneration
of the reagents, the efficient precipitation of carbonates without requiring pH adjustment, and the production of high-purity carbonates.
WO/2015/100087 PRESSURIZED FORWARD OSMOSIS PROCESS AND SYSTEM||WO||02.07.2015|
||PCT/US2014/070745||CREIGHTON, Robert||CREIGHTON, Robert|
A pressurized forward osmotic separation process is disclosed. Generally there are two processes described. One process involves the concentration of a target solute in the first solution; the other process involves the extraction of a solvent from a first solution both by a second solution comprising of water and soluble gas or water, soluble gas, and a compound by creating an osmotic concentration gradient across the semi permeable membrane. The first solution is under pressure from an inert gas and the second solution is under pressure from a soluble gas with equal system pressures greater than 1 atmosphere. The increase or decrease of partial pressure of the soluble gas in the second solution increases or decreases the chemical potential of the second solution to achieve different solution properties. The soluble gas may be carbon dioxide
and the compound may be magnesium hydroxide.

2889450 Process for recovering hydrocarbons from crude carbon dioxide fluid||EP||01.07.2015|
||14200270||AIR PROD & CHEM||HIGGINBOTHAM PAUL|
The power required to recover
C 3+ hydrocarbons from crude carbon dioxide
comprising C 1+ hydrocarbons and hydrogen sulfide may be reduced by distilling the crude carbon dioxide
to produce carbon dioxide
-enriched overhead vapor and C 3+ hydrocarbon-enriched bottoms liquid such that the hydrogen sulfide is rejected with the overhead vapor. Power consumption reductions may be achieved by incorporating a heat pump cycle using carbon dioxide
vapor as working fluid to provide at least a part of the refrigeration duty and using a side reboiler to reduce the bottom reboiler duty. Where the bottoms liquid is further processed to produce "lighter" and "heavier" hydrocarbon fractions, the process enables optimization of upgrading crude oil on the basis of API gravity, Reid Vapor pressure and/or viscosity.
