SRI INTERNATIONAL AWARDED NEW U.S. DOE CONTRACTS

 SRI INTERNATIONAL AWARDED NEW U.S. DOE CONTRACTS
 MENLO PARK, Calif., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- SRI International has


been selected to join an intensive U.S. DOE research effort to investigate the development of inexpensive and clean coal liquids. The SRI research is to be conducted over the next two years under three separate contracts totalling $1.2 million.
 The three programs will look at the effects of various catalysts on the coal under experimental conditions, and will include the following:
 -- One study will investigate aspects of the oxygen-containing, reactive components of the coal as they affect its conversion to liquid fuels. Through this research, SRI scientists expect to find ways to treat the coal prior to the liquefaction -- both to assist the process, and to provide liquids of improved quality and stability.
 -- A second study seeks to develop an understanding of the effects of various catalysts on some of the same oxygen-containing functionalities in the coal. This research will be conducted in cooperation with Bechtel Corp., who will look at the potential of the research for reduced liquefaction cost.
 -- The third study is to be conducted in collaboration with scientists at the Amoco Oil Research Center in Naperville, Ill., and will utilize liquid water at very high temperatures and pressures as a probe of the chemical links in the coal and the effects of catalysts on their reactivity. The study will utilize a cell with diamond windows, and the images of the changes in the coal will be recorded on video tape and then analyzed.
 SRI International provides research, development, and consulting services to business and government worldwide.
