Low Quality/Low Cost Thermal Fuel Assessment
North AmericaOctober 22, 2020
K&M was engaged by US DOE to assess the potential use of low quality/low cost alternatives to bituminous coal-based coal water slurry in heat engines already modified to burn such fuels. The successful development of these new technology prompted further research to determine the suitability of eight specific alternative low quality/low cost fuels. K&M also assessed the cost of production, availability and potential commercial success of low quality fuels, quality requirements vs. conventional heat engine fuels, and the state of current technology.
