On the other side, the Energy area has as objectives the R+D+I of new devices for the generation and storing of energy, the development of new fully-controlled and automated processes for obtaining “clean fuels”, or the development of supports or last generation catalysers
that increase the energetic efficiency of the processes, among others.
The aesthetic qualities of a city are functioning as catalysers
for the economic growth; that is why cities invest in culture, leisure, shopping, mobility and environment.
What kind of architectural shapes are catalysers
for our thinking processes?
In 1962, Mobil Oil introduced synthetic zeolite X for cracking catalysers
Though not as crucial to the story as the cardinal units, the catalysers
are still essential in creating a narrative by connecting the cardinal units, enabling the movement of the story from one point to the next in a syntagmatic, chronological fashion (Barthes 93).
To represent the active vehicular park of the city as much as possible; ten units were selected, (from a preliminary set of sixteen test vehicles), according to their age, engine size, feeding technologies (carburetor, monopoint injection, and multipoint injection), maintenance condition, and the possibility of testing two types of fuel in some of them, and the use of catalysers
A survey recently conducted by EURORDIS amongst 300 patient organisations representing over a million individual patients in 29 countries - shows that patients are important catalysers
the cardinal functions/nuclei or catalysers
, would be, instead, something in the line of indices or informants: those secondary and tertiary signs that seem to have no constitutive function in the production of meaning yet, when all is said and done, figure significantly" (37).
Emissions, meanwhile, have been sorted by the fitting of two header pipe catalysers
and a third in the manifold.
The low exhaust gas values can be achieved without expensive particle filters or catalysers
, says the company.
4 The term "catalytic" derives from Roland Barthes's "Introduction to the Structural Analysis of Narrative" which proposes two sons of units for breaking down the chain of narrative events: cardinal functions which constitute the "hinge points" of a narrative, the actions which have a decisive impact on the unfolding of the plot, and catalysers
, which merely "fill in" the narrative space separating the hinge functions (93).
The most important applications are: rubber, ceramics and concrete, plastic and linoleum, pigments and coatings, cosmetics, medical and dental products, catalysers
, desulfurisation, varistors fertilisers, animals feed and dietary supplements, as well as synthesis of chemical products.
