United States Patent: 7208530

We earlier made report of what we believe to have been the Patent Application which matured into the United States Patent we include and disclose herein.

As can be seen our full dispatch, as accessible via:

California Hydrogasifies, and Recycles, Even More Carbon | Research & Development; which concerns: "United States Patent Application 0050256212 - Production of Synthetic Transportation Fuels; Date: November, 2006; Inventors: Jospeh Norbeck, et. al., CA and MA";

As we've documented, for just one example, in:

West Virginia Coal Association | Fly Ash Facts for Engineers | Research & Development; concerning The United States Federal Highways Administration document: "Fly Ash Facts for Highway Engineers; Report Number: FHWA-IF-03-019; Contract: DTFH61-02-X-00044; 2003; Coal fly ash is a coal combustion product that has numerous applications in highway construction (and) has been used in roadways and interstate highways since the early 1950s. In 1974, the FHWA encouraged the use of fly ash in concrete pavement with Notice N 5080.4, which urged states to allow partial substitution of fly ash for cement whenever feasible. In addition, in January 1983, the Environmental Protection Agency published federal comprehensive procurement guidelines for cement and concrete containing fly ash to encourage the utilization of fly ash and establish compliance deadlines. This document is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation, through the Federal Highway Administration, in cooperation with the American Coal Ash Association and the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The United States Environmental Protection Agency supports the beneficial use of coal combustion products as an important priority and endorses efforts by the Federal Highway Administration as described in this document";

The article we enclose herein appears in: Concrete Construction Magazine; Annual Floors Issue 2007; and, it affirms any number of our prior reports concerning the environmental and performance benefits of using Coal Ash in the making of Portland-type Cement and Portland Cement Concrete.

That affirmation comes in the form of construction design specifications published by a major US company, whose public sense of social and environmental responsibility is well known.

Wal-Mart Stores Incorporated now requires that a certain minimum amount Coal Ash be used in the concrete floors, and where else possible, in the construction of all their new facilities.

United States Patent Application: 0100187172

We have several times documented the extraordinary technology that has been developed at Penn State University, which would enable us to begin treating Carbon Dioxide, as it is co-produced in only a small way, relative to natural sources of emission such as volcanoes, from our economically vital and essential use of Coal in the generation of electrical power, for what it truly is:

A freely-available natural raw material resource which we can harvest and then convert into anything, almost quite literally anything, we now indenture ourselves to the somewhat inimical alien nations of OPEC for the supply of.

United States Patent: 8138380

We have presented, over the long course of our reportage, numerous examples of the Carbon Dioxide recycling technology that has been, and is being, established at the University of Southern California, by their Nobel Laureate chemist, George Olah, and his USC colleagues.

Their array of CO2 utilization processes is compendious. It is as astounding to us here that just the sheer volume of their work, their productivity, has yet to garner any real public notice, as is the main point which they continue to drive home with such potent persistence, which is:

Carbon Dioxide, as it arises in only a very small way, relative to natural sources of emission, such as volcanoes, from our varied and productive uses of Coal, is a valuable raw material resource.
