C1 CHEMISTRY FOR THE PRODUCTION OF CLEAN LIQUID TRANSPORTATION FUELS AND HYDROGEN

Faculty and students from five Universities - University of Kentucky, University of Pittsburgh, University of Utah, West Virginia University, and Auburn University - are collaborating in a research program to develop C1 chemistry processes to produce ultra clean liquid transportation fuels and hydrogen, the zero emissions transportation fuel of the future. The feed stocks contain one carbon atom per molecular unit. They include synthesis gas, a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen produced by coal gasification or reforming of natural gas, methane, methanol, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide. An important objective is to develop C1 technology for the production of transportation fuel from domestically plentiful resources such as coal, coalbed methane, and natural gas. An Industrial advisory Board with representatives from Chevron-Texaco, Conoco-Phillips, Energy International, the Department of Defense, and Tier Associates provides guidance on the practicality of the research. The current report presents results obtained in this program in its third year.
