Is Graphite The Next Big Thing In The World Of Alternative Energy?

David Drake on The Huffington Post Chairman, LDJ Capital Climate change is upon us. It needs to be addressed and be a priority. Searching for sources of alternative energy is an important topic and there is an important mineral that can potentially make a huge difference for future generations. For several years now, I enjoy getting business advice from CVMR Corporation (CVMR) CEO Kamran Khozan. His firm CVMR has a nanotech and metallurgical expertise … Continue reading

Presentations (JNMC using CVMR technologies )

Nickel carbonyl production process is not a latest technology, nearly a hundred years of the study of history, there are decades of research time. Nickel carbonyl refining is a simple process, low energy consumption, high extraction rate, but also conducive to environmental protection without waste precious metal enrichment process can produce high-purity nickel pellets, metal powder, alloy powder, powder-coated, foam nickel and nickel nano-powder products, but for a long time, due to the small … Continue reading

Direct extraction of nickel and iron from laterite ores using the carbonyl process

Abstract The carbonyl method of refining nickel and iron was invented more than 100 years ago and has been used for refining of nickel commercially. CVMR® developed the process of direct extraction of nickel and iron from laterite ores as metal carbonyls which in turn produced pure nickel and iron metals. CVMR®’s carbonyl technology has been applied to several types of limonite and saprolite ores containing other metals such as copper, cobalt and PGE. The … Continue reading

Understanding the Factors Affecting the Formation of Carbonyl Iron Electrodes in Rechargeable Alkaline Iron Batteries

Aswin K. Manohar, Chenguang Yang, Souradip Malkhandi, Bo Yang, G. K. Surya Prakash and S. R. Narayanan,z Abstract Rechargeable iron-based alkaline batteries such as iron – air and nickel – iron batteries are attractive for large-scale electrical energy storage because iron is inexpensive, globally-abundant and environmentally-friendly. Further, the iron electrode is known for its robustness to repeated charge/discharge cycling. During manufacturing these batteries are charged and discharged 20 to 50 times during which the … Continue reading

Carbonyl Surface Coating

Stage 1 A preliminary test applying a carbonyl nickel coating to several substrates was performed at CVMR Corporation in Toronto, Ontario, Canada (see Appendix 1-B in the Introduction Chapter). Zinc alloy A190, copper alloy C110 and low-carbon steel surfaces were prepared by depositing carbonyl nickel at 175 °C (347 °F). The coated specimens were subjected to various thermal exposures to increase interface bonding and to reduce residual stresses. The specimen geometries comprised planchets, approximately … Continue reading

The Carbonyl Nickel Coin Manufacturing Concept

1.Background The carbonyl or Mond process was discovered in 1884 when Ludwig Mond noticed that hot carbon monoxide (CO) gas would severely corrode nickel. The carbonyl process exploits the ability of CO to form compounds with many of the transition elements in Groups VIA to VIIIA of the Periodic Table of Elements. The process works particularly well for nickel and it is reversible. That is, nickel can be extracted from a substrate, or deposited … Continue reading

CARBONYL PROCESS

The carbonyl process is not part of the proposed action or any of the alternatives discussed in this EA, but it was briefly investigated during the course of this effort, so a concise summary of the process and the potential environmental impacts are included for reference. The carbonyl process was invented in 1903 and deposits nickel, iron, cobalt and some other metals by a relatively low-temperature gaseous process; but also can extract these metals … Continue reading

Surface Engineering by the Carbonyl Process

Problem: The DoD spends tens of billions of dollars each year on corrosion & wear prevention and repair. Many technologies are employed for different alloys and environments. Several commonly used protection technologies have adverse environmental effects. Solution: The carbonyl process is a century old process by which certain transition elements can be extracted or removed by carbon monoxide gas at a particular temperature, or deposited on most substrates at another temperature. The process is … Continue reading
