The objective of this study is to assess the technical and economic feasibility of alternative fuels for automotive transportation, specifically: identification and characterization of potentially feasible and practical alternative fuels that can be derived from domestic, nonpetroleum energy resources; technical and economic assessments of the most promising alternative fuels for three specific time frames; identification of pertinent fuels and research data gaps and recommendations of alternative fuel(s) to best satisfy future U.S. automotive transportation requirements. Major emphasis in the selection of alternative fuels is placed on long-term availability from domestic resources. Economics, competition with other energy applications for limited energy resources, safety, handling, system efficiency, environmental impacts, and engine and fuel distribution system compatibility are also taken into account. This study provides background information for the development of U.S. energy programs pertaining to chemical fuels.
