Description

Many approaches have been undertaken to mitigate global climate change, including the movement away from fossil fuels. Fossil Free Fuels: Trends in Renewable Energy examines several key topics, such as the utilization of biofuels as sustainable renewable resource, recycling and untapped waste-to-energy products, and other carbon-neutral strategies in various industries such as in transportation, construction, and manufacturing sectors. It provides recent updates on the latest technologies, modeling, design, and technical aspects, as well as several practical case studies. The current world energy scenario is examined and various solutions to larger environmental problems are outlined in terms of shift to more alternative energy sources.

Features:

  • Minimizes technical jargon in a straightforward style for a wider audience
  • Discusses sustainable options for different industries, such as the use of green materials in the construction sector, biofuels for transportation, and many more
  • Includes numerous illustrations, tables, and figures to aid in understanding

This book serves as a practical reference for engineers, researchers, environmental consultants working in renewable energy industries, and students.

Professor Dr Khairul Anuar Kassim is a Civil Engineering lecturer and the Chairman of School of Civil Engineering, University Teknologi Malaysia. He received his B.Eng in Civil Engineering from University of Middlesex, London and his MSc and PhD from University of Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom. Prof Khairul research work includes ground improvement using active additives and biomediated soil stabilisation. Published more than 100 journal papers on related areas.

Wan Azelee Wan Abu Bakar was born in 1959 and had worked at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia since 1983. He was promoted to full professorship in 2000. His expertist is in Heterogeneous Catalysis Chemistry. He has published more than 100 papers in national and international journals and had supervised 23 MSc and 20 PhD students. He is very active in consultation works and had owned 3 patents with two commercialisable products.

Professor Aminaton Marto was born 1960. Her Master of Sc. in Soil Mechanics and Foundation Eng. from University of Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom in 1987 and the Ph.D in Geotechnical Eng. from University of Bradford, UK in 1996. She started her career in UTM since July 1983 and was promoted to a full Professor in 2008. She has been appointed as a Visiting Scholar in Japan and the US universities and a Visiting Professor at Tokyo City University, Japan in 2018. She is the Advisor (business activities in Malaysia) for three Japanese companies; Japan Home Shield Corporation, Hokoku Engineering and Asahi Techno Co. Ltd. since 2018. Currently, she is attached with the Malaysia-Japan International Institute of Technology (MJIIT), UTM Kuala Lumpur in which she had served as the Deputy Dean of Academic and Student Development. She belongs to the Environmental Eng. and Green Technology Department, is a Member at the Disaster Preparedness and Prevention Centre, and an Associate Fellow at the Centre of Tropical Geoengineering, UTM. Since joining UTM, Prof. Marto has established numerous successful research programs in the field of Geotechnical Eng. Her specialisations are in Soft Soil Eng., Geotechnical Investigation and Geotechnical Earthquake Eng. She pioneered the research on Bamboo-Geotextile Composite for soil reinforcement and the use of coal ash as an alternative material for soft soil improvement. Other research include chemical and recycled blended tiles for soil stabilization, tunneling, liquefaction and geothermal energy piles. Her current research focuses on Sustainable Development and Disaster Risk Reduction. This includes exploring the use of Screw Driving Sounding Test, a newly developed technology for determining fast and accurate sub-surface soil profiles, which is sponsored by Japanese companies since 2017. In collaboration with Abertay University, Scotland, her other current research examines the use of industrial waste for carbon sequestration. Prof. Marto is also promoting the Super Well Point (a technology from Japan) as an alternative method for lowering water table as well as for soft soil improvement. Throughout Prof. Marto’s 35 years of service in UTM, she has successfully secured more than 30 research projects from national and international agencies amounting to about RM4 million. She had published numerous journal and conference papers, and supervised more than 50 post-graduate students from Malaysia, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Kurdistan and others.

Syed Anuar Faua’ad Syed Muhammad was born in 1971 and had worked at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia since 1997. He was appointed as senior lecturer in 2015. His expertise is in Crystallisation of Pharmaceutical Compounds and Aerobic Wastewater Treatment Plant for Oleochemical Industries. He has published more than 50 papers in national and international journals and conferences. He had supervised 10 MSc and 2 PhD students.
