Techno-Economic Analysis

Overview:  Techno-economic analysis (TEA) is a powerful tool that quantifies the impact that research and development have on the economics of an integrated process. TEAs are performed to evaluate the potential economic viability of a process. Additionally, TEAs can be used to 1) identify cost drivers of an integrated design and help set specific targets/metrics […]
