This report describes and summarizes a literature survey of the properties of synthetic fuels for ground-based turbine applications, compiled up to October 1980. The major processes for coal liquefaction (solvent extraction, catalytic liquefaction, pyrolysis, and indirect liquefaction) and coal gasification (fixed bed, fluidized bed, entrained flow, and underground gasification) are described. Processes for upgrading coal-derived liquids are discussed, and some property data for some coal-derived liquid and gaseous fuels are presented.
