he status of the technology is as follows: brief foredesign has been prepared and a basic process design is available for a pressure-method purification of the benzene-toluene fraction of carbochemical origin. The process of technology has been developed entirely in ICRI and is part of its know-how. Its essential advantages include reduction in the volume of liquid waste originated from the refining of the benzene-toluene fraction and reduction of its harmful effect. In addition, the proposed solution enables the recovery of water for re-use in the process of technology.
The technology has been evaluated under the SPIN-TECH Project Phase A.
