Abstract
The US has abundant coal resources, but their use is constrained by excessive carbon emissions and inefficient technologies to convert them into more useful liquid transportation fuels. Co-gasification of coal and biomass is considered as a potential solution to these problems, providing a new fuel base for future energy needs. A very promising approach is to combine gasification of coal and biomass in a large-scale facility with Fischer-Tropsch (FT) synthesis technology to convert syngas to clean liquid fuels
