ALTERNATE ENERGY SOURCES FOR NON-HIGHWAY TRANSPORTATION

The overall objectives for the study were to examine the choices for alternate fuels in each mode - aircraft, marine, railroad, and pipeline for the present (now-1985), mid-term (1985-2000), and long-term (2000+), and to recommend R & D ideas for each mode. The paper summarizes a preliminary screening step where many different types of prime movers and fuels were evaluated, an evaluation for each mode.
