Discusses the formation, composition, properties and processing of the principal fossil and biofuels, ideal for graduate students and professionals.Focusing on today's major fuel resources, this book discusses the natural processes by which they formed; their composition and properties; and the ways in which they are converted or upgraded into the forms in commercial use. It is ideal for graduate students and professionals in chemical engineering and energy technology.Focusing on today's major fuel resources, this book discusses the natural processes by which they formed; their composition and properties; and the ways in which they are converted or upgraded into the forms in commercial use. It is ideal for graduate students and professionals in chemical engineering and energy technology.Focusing on today's major fuel resources  ethanol, biodiesel, wood, natural gas, petroleum products and coal  this book discusses the formation, composition and properties of the fuels, and the ways in which they are processed for commercial use. The book examines the origin of fuels through natural processes such as photosynthesis and the geological transformation of ancient plant material; the relationships between their composition, molecular structures, and physical properties; and the various processes by which they are converted or refined into the fuel products appearing on today's market. Fundamental chemical aspects such as catalysis and the behaviour of reactive intermediates are presented, and global warming and anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions are also discussed. The book is suitable for graduate students in energy engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering and chemistry, as well as professional scientists and engineers.1. Fuels and the global carbon cycle; 2. Catalysis, enzymes and proteins; 3. Photosynthesis and the formation of polysaccharides; 4. Ethanol; 5. Plant oils and biodiesel; 6. Composition and reactions of wood; 7. Reactive intermediatel#.
