SRI Research Identifies Environmentally Friendly Process to Make Coal-Based Liquid Fuel
They found a way to cut capital cost in half versus a FT CTL plant by using LNG/methane as a hydrogen and heat source rather than water/steam, but the $/gallon is higher than a FT CTL plant. I suppose it might make sense in water poor areas that have either coal or LNG access.

Synthetic fuels research aims to reduce oil dependence
Interesting if they have solved some of the issues of a high pressure coal feeder...

Fuel Alternatives to the Power Industry - LPP Combustion LLC
Combustor technology company offering gas turbine combustor retrofits, primarily it seems for Capstone microturbines to run on biofuels. The end goal is a coal fueled IGCC setup, using simpler CTL/GTL gasifier tech, this company's special liquid fuel to synthetic natural gas (methane), and conventional natural gas turbines, to keep costs down by trying to use simple and/or in production hardware. Though you would take a performance hit over a purpose built fully integrated IGCC plant with a syngas or hydrogen turbine
