The goal of this short course is to gain a better understanding of fuels using a combination of video, photos, diagrams, text and audio. The material is based on seminars our fuels technology staff has given to automotive mechanics, as well as our marketing and advertising agencies. We have included four modules which deal with the most common topics that have been requested at these seminars. These include:
1. Refining, Supply and Pricing
2. Gasoline
3. Biofuels
4. Ethanol & E-85

No enrollment limit, no advance sign up


As CO2 emission control is gaining increasing acceptance, efficiency, and CO2 capture and storage are becoming key concepts for the technology of both new and existing generating plant. Technology options, including coal-fired steam plants with advanced steam parameters and coal gasification combined cycle plants, without and with CO2 capture and storage (CCS) are discussed and compared for efficiency, costs and operational availability.
