Biofuels. An Overview.


During the 1970s oil crisis, Dr Miller was a Section Head at New Zealand's national chemistry laboratory, and during this period he surveyed the technology available to make biofuels, and embarked on his own program. Now, with a further resurgence of interest in biofuels, he has repeated the exercise. This ebook summarizes the biomass resources that might be used to make biofuels, it considers the technologies available to convert such resources to fuel, and it outlines some of the physical constraints involved in converting a transport system based on oil to renewables. There is no prescription of what will solve these problems because there are too few data, but it tries to outline what we know and what we do not know.
