PERIODICALS... ENERGY SOURCES AND USE
Vehicles: The Clean Machine," R.H. Williams, Technol.
Review, 20-30, Apr. 1994.
The energy systems supporting fuel-cell vehicles would produce
much lower amounts of greenhouse gas emissions than those
supporting gasoline or battery cars. With a major redirection of
U.S. research and development, fuel-cell vehicles could be
mass-produced by 2010.
A Possible Source of 'Biodiesel' Fuel," R. Baum, Chem.
Eng. News, 28-29, Apr. 4, 1994.
Microalgae, which can produce up to 30 times more oil per unit
growth area than land plants, are a potential source of lipids
that could be converted into a diesel fuel.
from Whole Trees," L. Lamarre, EPRI Journal, 17-24,
Describes "Whole Tree Energy," the production of
electricity by burning dried sections of whole trees. The process
would be cost-competitive with coal and would emit relatively low
levels of SO2, NOx and particulates. When fueled by a renewable
tree crop, it would release no net CO2.
on the "supercar" from Rocky Mt. Inst. Newsletter

"Free Wheeling: The Coming Supercar Revolution," 1,
6, Summer 1993. Describes a car of the future that would be very
light, safe and efficient, with gasoline consumption of 150-300
"Supercar's Broader Implications: Are We Ready for
Success?" 6, Fall/Winter 1993. Looks at the impacts of a
supercar on energy and national security, oil prices, air
quality, global warming, and public policy.
