Patents issued:

  • Three patents are for a method of making high-quality cement from the greenhouse gases and other pollutants from power plants.
  • Three patents are for catalyst chemistry for ultra-low emissions from gas-fired power plants, and
  • Two for mechanical systems for pollution control, including one that has been used for carbon capture.
  • The ninth patent is for making electricity from the non-carbon parts of coal while simultaneously de-acidifying acid mine drainage.
  • The tenth  patent is for “The Walking Chair,” a medical assistive device I invented to help with my back problems.
