    USDA Contracting Desk Book, (NEW) The USDA Contracting Desk Book is intended to be a depiction of departmental and subagency/mission area acquisition regulations, policies, procedures guidance and information. For previous, expired versions of the Contracting Desk Book. This paper reviews the use of additives to improve safety aspects associated with the use of methanol as a motor fuel. A survey of the literature was conducted to determine candidate additives for methanol that produce one or more of the following properties: provide a visible or luminous flame, reduce the potential for skin contact, give a foul or unpleasant taste and odor, and act as an emetic.

    We are proud that approximately 40 percent of our fleet will be powered by methanol-fuel technology by the end of the year.” “Our first two methanol-powered ships were delivered in , and each now has more t successful running hours on methanol with no issues that have resulted in off-hire or idle time,” says Patrik Mossberg. As part of the US Dept. of Energy-sponsored fleet testing of methanol-fueled vehicles at various sites around the country, Argonne National Laboratory has been operating five M85 (85% methanol blend)-fueled Chevrolet S pickups and five M85 Ford Crown Victorias on- and off-site since late

    The basis for introducing methanol vehicles into federal inventory included evaluation of vehicle performance under normal and cold weather conditions, assessment of fuel economy, emissions and safety, comparison of operations and maintenance costs, and establishment of refueling .   Mr. Smith of the Energy Ciommission staff said that although the pump price of methanol is about 72 cents a gallon for fleet users and 82 cents a gallon for the public, the price is inflated by.

The Federal Methanol Fleet Project, a demonstration authorized by the U.S. Congress in fiscal year and managed by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) for the Department of Energy, has operated methanol-fueled vehicles for nearly three years with a total of 20 methanol vehicles and 19 comparable gasoline vehicles now operating at three different by: 2.

Abstract. The Federal Methanol Fleet Project concluded with the termination of data collection from the three fleet sites in February The Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (LBL) completed five years of operation, Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) completed its fourth year in the project, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) completed its third.

Methanol occurs as a flammable, mobile, colorless liquid that is miscible with water. (3) Methanol has a slightly alcoholic odor when pure and a repulsive, pungent odor when in its crude form; it is difficult to smell methanol in the air at less than 2, parts per million (ppm) (2, mg/m 3).

(1,2) The vapor pressure for methanol is 92 torr. FEDERAL METHANOL FLEET PROJECT FINAL REPORT B. West R. McGill S. Hillis J. Hodgson INTRODUCTION The Federal Methanol Fleet (FMF) was a Congressionally mandated program initiated in to place methanol vehicles into routine government service.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has had project management responsibility for the. Waterfront Shipping operates the world's largest methanol ocean tanker fleet with its fleet comprising vessels from 3, to 50, dwt. Its fleet of 28 modern, deep sea tankers forms a seamless transportation network dedicated to keeping an uninterrupted flow of methanol moving to storage terminals and customers' plant sites around the world.

Across the world, methanol is emerging as a clean, sustainable transportation fuel of the future. Methanol can be blended with gasoline in low-quantities and used in existing road vehicles, or it can be used in high-proportion blends such as M85 in flex-fuel vehicles or M in dedicated methanol.

book format at a nominal cost over the internet. Drums, totes, and cans are transported, stored, and handled by the vast majority of methanol users.

This discussion focuses on 5-gallon and gallon quantities packaged in metal containers. Plastic containers are not recommended for long-time storage or shipment of methanol because the solvent.

Methanol. Methanol (CH 3 OH), also known as wood alcohol, is considered an alternative fuel under the Energy Policy Act of As an engine fuel, methanol has chemical and physical fuel properties similar to ol use in vehicles has declined dramatically since the early s, and automakers no longer manufacture methanol vehicles in the United States.

The Federal Vehicle Standards classifies various types and sizes of commercially available vehicles, and establishes minimum technical, quality, and optional equipment specifications.

The standards ensure vehicles purchased by GSA are safe, durable, and economical, and provide uniformity in. This handbook defines management’s responsibility for fleet management and prescribes procedures to attain maximum efficiency. It has been revised to update Chapters 1, 4, 5, and 7. Chapters 2, 3, and 6 remain unchanged except for minor corrections.

With the growing demand for cleaner marine fuel, methanol is an alternative fuel for ships that helps the shipping industry meet increasingly strict emissions regulations.

Methanol significantly reduces emissions of sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate. Federal government websites often end Before sharing sensitive information, make sure you're on a federal government site.

Full Record; Other Related Research. Seven current-production automobiles were used in a fleet study to determine the long-term effects and end-use influences of using 10% methanol/90% gasoline blends as automotive fuels. The vehicles were operated over a course designed to accumulate mileage at a rate and duty cycle similar to automobiles used by the private sector in the US.
