Abstract:A preliminary process design and economic analysis of the process suggested good economic returns by combining SEC and AC. About 80% of the capital cost and 85% of the operating cost of the process, as it stands now, is due only to the stationary phase. Our studies on the characteristics of the resins could be used to develop alternate lower-cost materials. In addition, the composition of the "impurities" fraction is unknown. There may be high-value compounds within that fraction that could further enhance the economic viability of the process.
