 FTD From Coal and Palm Oil Biodiesel Report
 Prepared May 2006

Due to high oil prices and the availability of stranded gas there is increased worldwide interest in FT distillate fuels. In regions of the world, such as North America, where gas prices are higher but there are substantial reserves of coal, high oil prices and interest in FT distillate is causing an interest in coal to FT distillate processes such as is practiced in South Africa. The coal to FT distillate pathway has been added to the model. It has been added to all of the results sheets. As part of this work the FT fuels for the light duty diesel applications have been added to GHGenius as well.

Palm oil is the lowest cost vegetable oil feedstock produced in the world today. It is increasingly being considered as a feedstock for biodiesel production, not only in the regions of the world where it is produced but also in Europe and North America. The environmental benefits of palm oil are also somewhat controversial with claims regarding cultivation practices being both pro and con palm oil as a sustainable feedstock source.

The production of palm oil and palm oil biodiesel has been added to the model. The biodiesel can be used as a neat fuel and in blends in heavy-duty vehicles and in blends in light duty vehicles. All of the pathways have been added to all of the results sheets in the model including the summary sheets and the cost sheets. Palm oil biodiesel can now be compared to biodiesel produced from other oil sources within the same model.
