THE DEVELOPMENT OF WATERBORNE ALCOHOL FUEL PLANTS. VOLUME 3: SUMMARY OF FINDINGS/PRESENTATION
The charter of the project was to review alcohol production processes and feedback, study their application to floating plant technology and perform case studies that would show the near term potential for these types of plants. The four case studies dealt with production of methanol from natural gas in Cook Inlet, Alaska; methanol from natural gas in Baltimore Canyon, Atlantic Ocean; ethanol and methanol from codisposed refuse and sludge--long range plan for New York City; ethanol from agricultural feedstocks and MSW, State of Louisiana. Two plants were used in design and economic studies--1000 TDP methanol plant and 250 TPD ethanol plant. This document provides highlights of the first two volumes and copies of presentation material.
