The environmental factors associated with alternative fuel/energy cycles were analyzed to provide a basis for making explicit judgments regarding economics and environmental trade-offs. A compilation of effluent data was developed for those energy sources considered commercially viable in the 1975 to 1990 time period. A methodology was developed for organizing the compiled effluent data, for evaluating the combined effects of extraction, transportation, processing, and use of fuels to produce energy, and for ranking the fuel/energy systems environmentally. The data bank and computer program for the ranking procedure are extant. The computerized methodology enables an energy system evaluator to test preferred weighting factors readily.
