Lastly, we note that the Examiner’s “continuous” process holding is consistent with applicable precedent, including In re Di[l]not, 319 F.2d 188, 194 (CCPA 1963)(cited by the Examiner—Answer, page 6.). See also In re Korpi, 160 F.2d 564,566 (CCPA 1947) (case in which it was held to be obvious to convert batch process into continuous process) and In re Lincoln, 126 F.2d 477, 479 (CCPA 1942).

Dilnot, In re, 319 F.2d 188, 138 USPQ 248 (CCPA 1963) 2144.04

We have considered applicant’s remaining arguments and find none that warrant reversal of the Examiner’s rejections. Cf In re Antor Media Corp. 12 F.3d ___, ___, 2012 WL 3055928, 103 USPQ2d 1555, 1563 (Fed. Cir. 2012).
