This report examines the history, technological feasibility, product quality, and cost of the EDS process. Available design studies addressing the process are critiqued and the best description and cost estimates are selected. The conclusion reached is as follows: a recent study by Exxon Research and Engineering was found to contain the most recent information on the EDS process. As this report shows increased costs and lowered process efficiencies, all older studies must be considered to be out-of-date.
