The pelletization results in the production of whole grain pellets having a soft, pliable texture, which are shreddable into continuous net-like sheets on a mass production basis. The pelletizing may be at a pressure of about 200 psig to about 600 psig, preferably from about 400 psig to about 500 psig. The pelletizing temperature may be controlled to provide a pellet temperature of about 80.degree. F. to about 135.degree. F., preferably from about 90.degree. F. to about 110.degree. F., upon exiting the pelletizer." The patent application was filed on May 9, 2011 (13/103,781).

*** AS IP Holdco Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 19 -- AS IP Holdco, Piscataway, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,308,085) developed by David Meisner, Monmouth Beach, N.J., Walter Pitsch, Washington, N.J., and Tung Hsien Lu, Taiping, Taiwan, for a "multifunction showerhead with automatic return function for enhanced water conservation." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The present invention provides a showerhead that allows a bather to switch among at least three different water delivery functions.

In the second function, the showerhead delivers a combined spray pattern, wherein the fluttering spray and a radially dispersed precision spray are simultaneously delivered to the bather at a rate not to exceed 2.0 GPM (7.57 L/min) for the combined water flow. In the third function, the showerhead delivers the precision spray pattern at a rate not to exceed 2.0 L/min (7.57 GPM). The combination spray pattern is effected without compromising either the desirable massaging and cleaning effect of water delivery or the inherent water conservation benefits. In addition, the showerhead of the present invention provides an automatic return feature for return of the showerhead to the first function when water pressure to the showerhead falls below a predetermined bottom threshold." The patent application was filed on Sept. 27, 2008 (12/239,763).

*** Headwaters Heavy Oil Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 19 -- Headwaters Heavy Oil, South Jordan, Utah, has been assigned a patent (8,309,041) developed by Roger K. Lott, Edmonton, Canada, and Yu-Hwa Chang, West Windsor, N.J., for "systems for increasing catalyst concentration in heavy oil and/or coal resid hydrocracker." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Systems for hydrocracking a heavy oil feedstock employ a colloidally or molecularly dispersed catalyst (e.g., molybdenum sulfide) which provide for concentration of the colloidally dispersed catalyst within the lower quality materials requiring additional hydrocracking. In addition to increased catalyst concentration, the inventive systems and methods provide increased reactor throughput, increased reaction rate, and of course higher conversion of asphaltenes and lower quality materials. Increased conversion levels of asphaltenes and lower quality materials also reduces equipment fouling, enables the reactor to process a wider range of lower quality feedstocks, and can lead to more efficient use of a supported catalyst if used in combination with the colloidal or molecular catalyst." The patent application was filed on Sept. 19, 2011 (13/236,209). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,309,041.PN.&OS=PN/8,309,041&RS=PN/8,309,041 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
