Total pore volume was calculated from the nitrogen volume held at p/[p.sub.0] = 0.98~0.99, and the micropore volume was estimated using the HK equation.
At present, little research has been carried out to detect whether the coupling effect of these two processes will result in a change in the micropore structure of rare earth orebodies, and useful conclusions have not yet been reached.
Since 2016, investments totalling around PS300,000 have helped Micropore Technologies scale-up its leading edge technology, take its unique membrane emulsification process from laboratory to full scale manufacture and expand its portfolio of bluechip clients.

In the next step, only the fit parameters related to the macropores ([e.sub.m] [a.sub.M] and [n.sub.M]) were adjusted; the micropore parameters ([e.sub.m], [a.sub.m] and [n.sub.m]) remained constant and equal to the average of values obtained in the first step (Full-Fit) considering all the states and consolidation loads.
