Book Description

As the demand for fossil fuels grows faster than production, the search for new fuels to replace fossil fuels is gaining in importance, and liquid biofuels are considered good candidates. This book reviews the technologies available today, as well as a number of promising new technologies, for the production of liquid hydrocarbon transportation fuels from biomass resources. Examples of everyday use of biofuels and liquid hydrocarbon fuels are featured throughout the book.
