The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Transportation Programs recently announced the creation of an Alternative Fuels Data Bank to provide a library for technical information on alternative fuels for transportation. The data bank is currently set up to handle information requests primarily for alcohol fuels. Information on other alternative fuels such as hydrogen, synthetic fuels from shale, coal, and biomass is available to a lesser extent. The data bank is located at DOE's Bartlesville (Oklahoma) Energy Technology Center. It will collect, reduce, and standardize information on alternative fuels. The information for the bank will be collected from experts working in the alternative fuels field. Information in the data bank is divided into published technical information, research information in development stages, and topical information listed by subject. Those interested in using the data bank must have access to a computer terminal with an acoustical coupler to be used with commercial telephone lines. Each user will need an individually assigned system entry code to use the computer service. Except for Monday from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. (central time), the link to the computer will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Systems access code and other information is available by contacting Ken Stamper, at the Bartlesville Center, (918) 336-2400, extension 258. The FTS number is 735-4258.
