Alcoholic Fuels
edited by Shelley Minteer

Alchoholic Fuels describes the latest methods for producing fuels containing varying percentages of alcohol alongside the various applications they benefit, including combustion engines, fuel cells, and miniature power generators.

Features:

  • Examines the production and use of alcohol fuels, blended fuels, and alcohol fuel cells in a single, definitive source
  • Illustrates how biomass, corn, and waste can yield alcoholic fuels
  • Evaluates the performance of E10, E-Diesel, and E85 in vehicles
  • Offers precise data and a comprehensive reviews of current applications using alcohol-based fuels, including alcohol-based biofuel cells as well as direct methanol and ethanol fuel cells
  • Compares exhaust emission data for different alcoholic fuels to gauge their environmental impact
  • Illustrates how each application can be implemented to reduce our dependency on oil and environmentally toxic power sources
