Cold-Weather Fischer-Tropsch Fuels

The goal of this project is to demonstrate the operating performance/benefits of Fischer-Tropsch synthetic diesel fuel in transit fleet applications. The project will test Fischer-Tropsch fuel in Fairbanks, Alaska. Another demonstration (OK-26-7005) is being undertaken in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in order to cover a wide range of climates and potential operating conditions. The project will compile emissions testing data of Fischer-Tropsch diesel fuel tested to date, and evaluate the benefit of emissions reductions relative to standard diesel fuel. In addition to the fleet demonstrations, the project will also research the utilization of Fischer-Tropsch fuel for hydrogen production in association with future fuel cell/reformer power system development.
