Synthetic Diesel Mass Transit Demonstration

The objective of this cooperative agreement is to support the efforts of the VSE Corporation to continue the Fischer-Tropsch synthetic diesel fuel transit demonstration at Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California and Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Michigan. Fischer-Tropsch synthetic diesel fuel contains virtually zero levels of sulfur and aromatics, a major advantage in terms of exhaust emission reduction potential. VSE projects aim to demonstrate the operating performance, benefits, and market acceptance of Ultra-Clean Fischer-Tropsch diesel fuels in transit bus fleets.
