The report introduces 23 different ways of using or converting energy. It provides a tabular comparison of the thermodynamic limiting present and future (1990) efficiencies. It includes a brief discussion of efficiency limiting factors, possible general routes for process improvement, and relevant on-going research and development. The report concludes that more study is required in several of the following areas: atmospheric fluid-bed combustion, automotive, bottoming cycle, chemical coal cleaning systems, chemically active fluid-bed combustion, coal cleaning plants, coal liquefaction, combined cycle (gas and steam), conventional boilers, conventional boilers plus flue gas cleaning, conversion of coal to methanol, diesel, Feher cycle, fuel cells, gas turbines, high-Btu gas generation, low-Btu gas generation, magnetohydrodynamics, nuclear power plants, potassium topping cycle, pressurized fluid-bed combustion, residual oil desulfurization, and steam turbines.
