Renewable energy is replenished naturally on a human timescale. It can replace conventional fuels in the major areas of electricity generation, transportation, off-grid energy services and heating. Biofuel is a renewable fuel that is derived from plants or from agricultural, domestic, commercial and industrial wastes. Biofuels can be in a solid, liquid or gaseous form. Gaseous biofuels include biogas and landfill gas, while liquid biofuels include different bioalcohols and oils. Certain solid biomass fuels are wood, agricultural waste and dried manure. Using first, second, third and fourth generation biofuel production procedures, ethanol, propanol, butanol, biodiesel, methanol, green diesel, biofuel gasoline, etc. can be developed for varied fuel applications. Bioethanol and biodiesel have potential applications as a transportation fuel. This book contains some path-breaking studies in biofuels. There has been rapid progress in this field and its applications are finding their way across multiple industries. With state-of-the-art inputs by acclaimed experts of this field, this book targets students and professionals.
