APPLICATION OF COAL-OIL FUELS TO MARINE STEAM AND DIESEL PROPULSION SYSTEMS

This report describes the results of an investigation of coal-oil and coke-oil mixtures (COM) for marine applications. This study is a continuation of a previous study performed by Booz, Allen & Hamilton for the Transportation Energy Conservation Division of the Department of Energy entitled "Evaluation of the Alternatives for Contingency Fuels in the Commercial Marine Transportation Industry." Coal-oil and coke-oil mixtures were two of the four energy sources identified in that study as having high potential for success as alternative marine fuels, and were recommended for additional research. The objectives of this study were to investigate in detail the technical and economic feasibility and the energy conservation potential of coal-oil and coke-oil mixtures for marine use, identify the additional research and development required for these fuels to constitute viable contingency fuels and to develop a program plan for research and development.
