... dimethyether (DME) as an alternative solvent because of its lower cost compared to propane and butane. We evaluate the capability of DME as a solvent for bitumen recovery processes. To investigate the performance of solvents, a series of experiments were conducted using a 2D sand-pack saturated with Athabasca...
