However, while D bleaching now dominates the marketplace, it continues to rely on stoichiometric chemistry. D bleaching is capital intensive, and it is a credit to the P & P industry in many countries that so much of the required capital to move away from C bleaching worldwide has been spent because of the environmental concerns. Operating expenses of D bleaching are also high and are strongly tied to energy prices because the manufacture of C10 is energy intensive.

Unfortunately, the difference between the true technology costs and those including risk coverage can be so great as to stop commercialization despite the substantial promise for the long term. The cost gap that develops as new technology moves from the laboratory bench to commercial use is often called the "Valley of Death" and can terminate its use despite tremendous promise and low-cost potential. The nature of commodity products presents an additional challenge for market entry (6). The good news is that a large market has been established that one can sell into as long as price and performance requirements are met.
