POLICY IMPLICATIONS OF A SHIFT IN FEDERAL SYNTHETIC-FUEL-DEMONSTRATION RESPONSIBILITY

The President's intention to shift the focus of synthetic fuels demonstration activities from DOE to the Synthetic Fuels Corporation (SFC) is discussed. The Demonstration Plant Program is described. The realignment will impact the organization, activities and mandate of the SFC. It will also impact the continuity of demonstration program efforts presently underway. Present contractual agreements between the government and industrial participants in synfuel development are described. Differences between DOE and SFC in project selection criteria, funding, priorities and restrictions is outlined. Legislative changes are not required to shift the demonstration responsibility to the Synthetic Fuels Corporation. (ERA citation 06:016921)
