The more interesting synthetic fuel was that obtained through processes invented by Friederich Bergius (and later enhanced by Matthias Pier). Bergius won a Nobel Prize for his work. The Bureau of Mines spent much time analyzing remnants of Bergius-process plants after the war.

The antitrust/patent implications of the deal between I.G. Farben and Standard Oil of New Jersey over synfuel and buna rubber are explored at IPBiz:

hmmm interesting

Castor Oil

Interesting anecdote...

More interesting because there have been recent explorations into the fischer-tropsch process to discover how diesel can be extracted more economically using the F-T process...while South Africa for instance has been using the F-T process for a while to extract "green" diesel, the process itself has not been very economical...new discoveries promise that it will soon be economically viable to have diesel produced from coal

While this is interesting. I agree with the other comment regarding the Bergius Process. And the now improved version, the "Kohleol" process, which is really just the Bergius with slightly different technology.

Indirect CTL technicques such as F-T are inefficient, and produce less transportation fuels than direct techniques. There's about 7 different commercially viable direct techniques mainly developed in germany, usa and japan. The first commercial scale direct CTL plant as part of this postmodern-era CTL revival is the NEDOL plant (Kohleol process), which is meant to be producing as of now... (Feb, 2008) but I doubt the Chinese government will let anyone see the results for a while.

It’s great that more people are focusing on making better environmental choices. Plus technology is making it more economical now, and that’s what people really notice. Wind energy, solar power, hybrids and zap EV’s, our choices are good. There are now electric cars being sold everyday, you just plug it into a regular power outlet. When people test drive them they say it’s far more fun to drive an EV.
