      The possibility of the world facing a "peak oil crisis" is now widely
      recognized as a clear and present danger in the fields of fuel and
      energy.
      Unfortunately, many attractive and widely-touted alternate fuel
      systems -- such as a safe and practical hydrogen-based transport fuel
      system -- will remain a dream until the distant future.
      For this reason, many nations have been re-examining other transport
      fuel technologies, such as the Coal-to-Liquids (CTL) technology, as a
      near future source of transport fuels.
      Coal-to-Liquids -- that is, the conversion of coal to liquid
      transport fuels -- is in fact not new a technology and has been
      practiced for a number of decades in countries such as South Africa
      and Germany and will soon be adopted in China.
      The most viable Coal-to-Liquids system requires the conversion of
      coal into a synthesis gas consisting of hydrogen and carbon monoxide
      and then its synthesis into long-chain liquid fuel molecules. These
      processes produce excess heat that can be used to generate
      electricity. The synthetic petroleum products, and especially
      synthetic diesel, have a number of unique environmental advantages.
      These advantages include the reduction of particulates, nitrogen
      oxides and fugitive aromatic hydrocarbon emissions of those
      associated with 'natural crude'....
