Task 1


Alcohols and Alcohol Blends as Motor Fuels


This first co-operative project within IEA/AMF had as objectives

  • to collect, classify, and comment on data obtained by international experience in the generation and use of alcohols and alcohol blends as motor fuels;
  • to collect guidelines that could be used in choosing nationaal strategies for replacing motor fuels in whole or in part by alcohols and
  • to obtain appropriate proposals for relevant developments in this field and to identify the potential need for future evaluation, analysis and development programmes.

The project resulted in a comprehensive report printed in 2 000 copies and distributed worldwide. The Executive Summary (Vol I) has two main chapters 1) "State-of-the-art summary" of technical, environmental, and economic data in Vol II and 2) "Conclusions and Guidelines" summarizing analyses, evaluations and assessments of a policy character contained in Vol II and expressing the consensus, that is, the essence of the study as agreed upon by the representatives of the participating countries.
