From the Back Cover:

The oil shocks of the 1970s and 1980s caused remarkable changes in the national energy policies of most industrialized nations, including the start of intensive research programs to develop biomass energy resources. Biomass is virtually the only indigenous, renewable, widely distributed natural resource capable of supplying heat, steam, and electric power, as well as solid, liquid, and gaseous organic fuels and commodity chemicals that are manufactured from fossil fuels. Biomass energy is expected to play a major role in the energy economies and security of many nations in the 21st century as we approach the end of the fossil fuel era. This book addresses the history of biomass energy research, its development, deployment efforts, the environmental impact of biomass energy usage, its potential for replacing fossil fuels, many commercial systems already in place, and conventional and advanced biomass energy technologies.

Biomass for Renewable Energy, Fuels, and Chemicals serves as a comprehensive introduction to the subject for the student and the educator and is useful for researchers who are interested in the technical details of biomass energy production. The coverage and discussion are multidisciplinary, reflecting the many scientific and engineering disciplines involved. The book will appeal to a broad range of energy professionals and specialists, farmers and foresters who are searching for methods of selecting, growing, and converting energy crops, entrepreneurs who are commercializing biomass energy projects, and those involved in designing solid and liquid waste disposal-energy recovery systems.
