Abstract The report provides estimated costs of producing methanol transportation fuel from coal. Estimates were made for mine-mouth plants in five different coal producing regions, and uniform methods were used so the estimated sales prices could be compared for market analysis. In addition to plant-gate prices, delivered prices were estimated for three major market areas. With presently available transportation the lowest delivered prices were for methanol production based in the southern lignite coal region. If new methanol-compatible pipelines were to be constructed, the lowest delivered prices would be for production based in the western subbituminous coal region. In the western subbituminous region, limited water resources would make extensive planning and careful site selection necessary, but they would not prevent the development of a coal-to-methanol industry. By-product carbon dioxide sales for enhanced oil recovery could reduce the required plant-gate methanol price in some areas near oil fields amenable to carbon dioxide injection techniques. Contains a literature review with 50 references.
