The industrialization of recovery processes is governed by several factors such as scale-up boundaries, product safety, and overall cost. Thereby, improved process efficiency is considered in terms of cost minimization via reducing processing steps and restricting overall energy consumption. The emerging nonthermal technologies promise to overcome the obstacles of conventional techniques with regard to energy requirements, but in some cases this has not yet been achievable. In this chapter, an attempt to clarify cost issues of conventional and emerging technologies is conducted. Moreover, other aspects such as safety issues are discussed, as the facilitation of healthy food additive production is a constant need.
