Fuels and Energy from Renewable Resources is a result of the proceedings of a symposium of the same name, held at the 1977 Fall Meeting of the American Chemical Society. The book addresses the issue of energy planning and includes the incorporation of crop and conifer residues into the development of energy supply. The text covers the different papers from multiple disciplines that discuss the full value of other resources. The papers also talk about the necessary amount of energy needed; the contribution of renewable resources; the possible uses of wood as an energy source and the competition that may arise from it; and the analysis of the usefulness of forest fuels. The pyrolysis-gasification-combustion process on wood; the logistics of energy resources; and other renewable resources, such as bagasse, manure, and waste, are also discussed. The book is recommended for experts who are exploring resources for alternative and renewable energy and aiming to educate others about it.
