  • Coal/Oil/Gas   Hydrogen (Electrolytic)    20 - 30 %
  • Oil Shale             Oil/Gas                               56 - 72 %
  • Methanol            Oil/Gas                                   86 %
  • wood                   Gas                                          90 %
  • Corn                    Ethanol                                   46 %
  • Manure               Gas                                          90 %

* Thermal Efficiency is the ratio of the heating value of the PRODUCT divided by the heating value of the PARENT Fuel.
