This volume focuses on six emerging energy technologies as components of future energy supply trajectories. Five of the six technologies - low Btu gasification, high Btu gasification, fluidized bed boiler combustion, solvent refined coal, and coal liquefaction - use coal in the production of synthetic fuels or electricity. The sixth, oil shale technology, considers the production of crude oil from this new energy source. For those technologies using coal, the environmental impacts, efficiencies, and costs are developed for three regional coals and a national average case. The coals for which data are developed include a low sulfur (Northwest), medium sulfur (Northern Appalachia), and high sulfur (Central) coal.
