The results of this study indicate that substantial reductions of nitrogen oxide emissions (up to 80% over oil-fired boilers) can be achieved by utilizing methanol in a repowered plant, with a corresponding 35% increase in electric generating capacity. A contract to bench-test methanol co-firing with residual oil in steam boilers is also under way. Methanol is believed to suppress nitrogen oxide emissions when fired over the top of residual oil burners in existing steam boilers. Follow-on work in repowering and co-firing is planned for the 1982/83 fiscal year beginning in July.

In California, ethanol production seems to be economically restricted to the use of waste and residual products, largely from fruit and starch crops. Grain-based ethanol is unattractive because of the high cost either to produce the grains on irrigated land or transport grains from the Midwest at the Chicago market price plus freight. Previous resource assessments, however, have shown that sufficient quantities of sugar and starch residue (both field and packing-plant spoilage) exist in California to supply fuel for public fleets in agricultural areas (about 60 million gallons per year).
