FUTURE DIESELS MAY USE HYBRID FUELS

A variety of hybrid fuels could power future diesel engines. These fuels could use nontraditional fuel feedstocks to replace a part of present liquid fuels, whether derived from petroleum, coal, or shale oil. Direct application of primary components (biomass, coal, and oil shale) is impractical because they are solids and contain substances that are damaging to the engine--or don't contribute to the energy content. Thus, a certain amount of processing would be necessary to produce solutions, emulsions, or slurries that could be used in existing equipment.
