Committee print of access: Internet Topics: Synthetic Fuels Corporation (U.S. The Synthetic Fuels Corporation (SFC or Synfuels Corporation) was a U.S. government-funded corporation established in by the Energy Security Act (ESA) to create a financial bridge for the development and construction of commercial synthetic fuel manufacturing plants (such as coal gasification) that would produce alternatives to imported fossil fuels.

The demise of the United States Synthetic Fuels Corporation (SFC) in was a rarity. Established under the Energy Security Act ofand called by President Jimmy Carter “the cornerstone of U.S. energy policy,” the SFC was premised on a belief in the increasing scarcity of crude oil and natural gas–and thus the need to turn coal into (synthetic) oil and gas.

The United States Synthetic Fuels Corporation was a superb idea. Its objective was a bold step by a president to address America's addiction to imported crude oil, which had made the nation vulnerable to the vagaries of an unstable region of the world. Prior to the corporation, the Department of Energy authorized Federal support for three synthetic fuel projects.

In the broadest definition, a liquid fuel that is not derived from natural occurring crude oil is a synthetic fuel.

Modern transportation fuels demand uniform physical properties produced from varying feed stocks with the chemical compositions. The Synthetic Fuels Corporation was shut down in before it could spend any more.

As economists Linda Cohen and Roger Noll later observed, “The entire synfuels program had a. Corporation documents concerning the Corporation's past efforts and future plans to develop a synthetic fuels industry. We also reviewed a February Congressional Research Service report, Synthetic Fuels Corporation and National Synfuels Policy.

The emphasis in most synfuels proposals remains on coal and oil shale, as these are the resources found in the greatest abundance in the U.S The total fossil fuels reserves of the United St a tes. But one option, synthetic fuels -- or synfuels-- offers some advantages and some drawbacks when compared to conventional oil-based fossil fuels.

Synthetic fuel is a category of fuels that includes any fuel "produced from coal, natural gas or biomass feedstocks through chemical conversion" [source: U.S. Energy Information Administration ].

The promise of synthetic liquid fuel production in the U.S. is assessed. Heavy oil sources are commercially viable; liquid fuels from tar sands are competitive at current world prices, but environmental impacts need further study; indirect coal liquefaction requires large-scale federal support; direct coal liquefaction has progressed at the pilot stage, now requires support by the Synfuels.

Synthetic fuel or synfuel is a liquid fuel, or sometimes gaseous fuel, obtained from syngas, a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen, in which the syngas was derived from gasification of solid feedstocks such as coal or biomass or by reforming of natural gas.

Common ways for refining synthetic fuels include the Fischer–Tropsch conversion, methanol to gasoline conversion, or direct coal.

At the moment, producing synthetic fuels is a complex and expensive process. However, a production ramp-up and favorable electricity prices could mean that synthetic fuels become significantly cheaper. Present studies suggest that the fuel itself (excluding any excise duties) could cost between and euros a liter in the long run.

Congress kills the U.S. Synfuels Corp. President Reagan's recent signing of a bill abolishing the U.S. Synthetic Fuels Corp. (SFC) gives the agency days to pack up its files, to lay off its employees and to transfer the administration of its five financial awards to the Department of the Treasury.
