Abstract

TDA Research Inc. has developed a catalyst that will enable mixtures of coal and biomass to be co-gasified to produce synthetic fuels. Our catalyst exhibits resistance to deactivation that is better than existing commercial catalysts for this application. By mixing agricultural waste with coal to make synthetic fuels, U.S. energy independence is increased and rural economic development is enhanced.
