DOE Supported R&D for Liquid Fuels/Advanced Fuels Synthesis
Liquid fuels synthesis R&D is located in the Coal and Coal Biomass to Liquids Program, in the Advanced Fuels Synthesis area.
In collaborative efforts, DOE is working with DOD on FT synthesis of diesel fuel and jet fuel from various feedstocks, including coal and coal & biomass mixtures. See Coal to F-T Liquids Technology, National Energy Technology Laboratory.
Finally, a substantial amount of the R&D being done under Gasification Systems will support lower-cost, ultra-clean syngas feed for FT synthesis.
