    The INGAA Foundation, Inc. retained BBI International (BBI) to analyze the natural gas implications for future alternative fuels plants. This analysis looked at current and future biofuels plants and quantities and estimated thermal energy loads. Increased crop production to supply biofuels plants and the resulting increases in fertilizer requirements was reviewed. This study also evaluated alternative thermal energy sources for biofuels plants and energy efficiency gains that may reduce natural gas demand at biofuels plants. It also addressed the natural gas infrastructure necessary to meet future biofuels production requirements.

    This report presents the results of a program of analysis and study performed during 1991 on Clean Air Act regulations which impact the natural gas transmission industry. This program is sponsored by the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America Foundation. The objectives of this work program are to enhance understanding and response of the gas transmission industry to air regulatory issues which affect the installation and operation of gas transmission pipeline facilities.

    A number of impending environmental regulations have created uncertainties about the ability of
    certain coal‐fired power plants (utility owned and merchant owned) to remain profitable into the
    extended future. While impending greenhouse gas (GHG) regulation is one of the largest threats to
    coal-fired power plants’ economic viability, a number of other increasingly stringent environmental
    programs, including new rules regulating emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and
    Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), will adversely affect these plants’ economics.
