This report discusses the potential for replacing oil and natural gas, the major organic chemical feedstocks, with alternative source materials and the consequent potential for environmental damage. Major emphasis is on five basic chemicals, and others are also considered. Current sources and uses of key chemicals are traced and a projection is made to the year 2000 under assumptions reflecting current market conditions. Three scenarios then define the upper limits for potential alternative feedstocks: (1) coal-based synthesis gas, (2) synfuel by-products, and (3) biomass.
