Apparatus and process for separating CO2 from a flue gas

Pub Date: 2011-12-08

Pub Number: US20110296870

An apparatus and a process for separating carbon dioxide from a flue gas of a coal burning power plant. The process includes compressing the flue gas to increase the pressure and temperature, and then passing the flue gas through a cryogenic heat exchanger that decreases the temperature even more prior to passing the cooled carbon dioxide through a turbine that decreases the temperature more and forms liquid and solid forms carbon dioxide. A carbon dioxide separator then separates the carbon dioxide from the flue gas, leaving both liquid and solids forms. A screw compressor compresses the solid carbon dioxide to produce only liquid carbon dioxide at a pressure suitable for sequestration. The liquid carbon dioxide is passed through the heat exchanger to cool the flue gas and to separate out any sulfur dioxide and water from the flue gas and to vaporize the liquid carbon dioxide prior to sequestration of the vapor carbon dioxide.

Pub Number: US20110298929

Improvements in a video system are presented that uses one or more camera(s) with a display system. The camera and display system operate together to allow a person to view the back or side of their head as they apply makeup or style their hair. The use of multiple cameras allows the person to view their hair, face or profile from different angles without requiring a single camera to be re-positioned or requiring the person to turn their head to view a particular area. The video system can blend the image from multiple cameras to achieve a view that is not from a single camera. The blending or morphing of the image allows the user the ability to obtain a view from nearly any angle without requiring them to move their head or adjust the camera angle.
