1999 Annual Progress Report: Advanced Petroleum-Based and Alternative Fuels

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


This report highlights progress achieved during FY 1999 under the Light-duty Fuels Utilization R&D Program. The program is comprised of two elements: the Advanced Petroleum-Based APB Fuels Program which focused on developing and testing advanced fuels for use with compression -ignition direct-injection (CIDI) engines and fuel cells and the Alternative Fuels Program which focused on Natural gasand natural gas derived fuels. The report contains 17 summaries of industry and National Laboratory projects. Fuel efficient vehicles with very low emissions are essential to meet the challenges of climate change, energy security, and improved air quality. We look forward to cooperative efforts with the auto and energy industries to develop new and innovative technologies that will be used tomake advanced transportation vehicles that are fuel efficient, clean, and safe.
