ASSESSMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL, HEALTH, AND SAFETY ISSUES RELATED TO THE USE OF ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORTATION FUELS. TOPICAL REPORT, OCTOBER 1990-NOVEMBER 1991

Substituting alternative transportation fuels for gasoline and diesel fuel may improve air quality in the United States. Before the 'best' fuel can be identified, each fuel's impact on a variety of environmental factors must be assessed and compared. In addition to considering the direct effect on traditional air quality problems such as ozone attainment, a comprehensive evaluation should also address new concerns about air toxics, acidic deposition and global warming. There may also be health and safety risks associated with the production, marketing, and use of alternative fuels. The fuels of interest are methanol, natural gas, and LPG.
