Sorbent for Collection of the Flowed Out Petroleum Products

The invention relates to the field of ecology, in particular to the materials and technologies, intended for the collecting petroleum products flowed out in the water, ground cover or on the surface of other materials. It is proposed the sorbent that contains the fine dispersed particles of material with the branched surface and the magnetic properties, intended for collecting flowed out petroleum products from water surface, terrain (soil) or other objects. There is described sorbent produced o

Process for the Capture of Carbon Dioxide

The invention provides a method for the capture of carbon dioxide gas which comprises contacting the carbon dioxide with at least one acid or a salt thereof, wherein said acid has a pKa value in the range of from 0 to 14, and said acid does not include an amino group. The at least one acid or a salt thereof may be in a solid or liquid form, but preferably comprises an aqueous solution. The acid may be inorganic or organic. Preferred acids have pKa values in the range from 4 to 13. Suitable organ
