Ten years on from the publication of the first edition of this book and fossil fuels still dominate the transport industry. However, there have been a number of advances in the production of biofuels for transportation use. This new edition provides updates on the previously discussed pathways for biofuels, including new experimental results and pilot plant studies, making it a useful read for researchers and industrialists working in biofuel development as well as postgraduate students studying fuel alternatives.
