Abstract:

Preliminary findings show five processes that will convert discarded cellulosic material into a useable fuel. These processes, hydrogenation, hydrogasification, pyrolysis, bioconversion and catalytic conversion of synthesis gas produce a pipeline quality gas, a fuel oil comparable to No. 6, or methyl fuel, all with heating values great enough to meet Naval operational needs. The report is a summary of these processes and their products.
