pp. 227 - 230

Keywords: alternative fuels, gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, liquid fuels from coal, gas, and biomass, low-emission fuels

Significant opportunities to reduce GHG emissions of CTL fuels fall under three categories: increasing efficiencies of conversion technologies; supplementing coal with feedstocks and energy inputs that have lower lifecycle GHG emissions; and carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS).
