FUTURE SYNTHETIC FUELS. A SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL APPLICATIONS FORECAST

This STAF reviews the broad problem of the impact on the U.S. Army of the use of synthetic fuels (defined as a non-petroleum derived fuel) over the time period of 1975 to 2000. The STAF is divided into three basic parts. The first part involves a forecast of which synthetic fuels will have a major impact in the time period under study. In the second part of the STAF, those alternate fuels identified as the most feasible synthetic fuels in the future were subjected to detailed analyses. The third part of the STAF consists of the identification of a number of areas which appear to offer promise for fruitful R and D in the synthetic fuel area. (Author)
