Technical Roadmap

Workshop Information

This workshop funded by the United Engineering Foundation (UEF) identified current and potential alternative uses of natural gas (NG) and determined which alternative uses have the highest impact and lowest technical impediments.  Speakers and panelists presented on the following topics:  stationary energy generation, transportation energy generation, and chemical synthesis.

Day two of the workshop allowed attendees to participate in roundtable discussions on the above topics.  Outcomes of these discussions will help author a paper that will serve as a technical roadmap for NG utilization.  The paper will be posted on this site once it is completed.
