A process is provided for removing CO.sub.2 and/or H.sub.2 S from a gas mixture containing as impurities CO.sub.2 and/or H.sub.2 S and at least one other impurity selected from the group consisting of a cyanide and ammonia. The process includes contacting at least a portion of the reflux stream from the overhead vapor from a stripping column of an acid gas removal solvent (i.e., alkanolamine) treatment plant with an anion exchange resin to remove corrosive impurities. The ion-exchanged reflux stream is then recycled to the top of the stripping column or into the bulk circulating acid gas removal solvent (i.e., alkanolamine) passing from the bottom of the stripping column.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
