Biofuels

Changes in the world energy context, the increasing awareness of the environmental stakes and the development of research on the production of second and third generation biofuels revealed a clear need to write a new book which updates and complements all technical, financial and environmental aspects of Les Biocarburants – État des lieux, perspectives et enjeux du développement (Biofuels – Current status, outlook and development stakes) published in 2006.

This new book provides a detailed state of the art of the first generation biofuel production technologies. It describes the new “second generation” pathways which use lignocellulosic biomass as raw material is starting to find industrial applications, thereby reducing the competition between the food resource and the use of agricultural materials for energy purposes. It also provides a technical update on the algaeto-energy pathway (third generation), and the production of methane and hydrogen by biochemical pathways.

Biofuels: Meeting the Energy and the Environmental Challenges of the Transportation Sector arrives at exactly the right time to renew the interest in biofuels, including for air transport. It also provides an insight on the technological research and development axes currently being investigated. It is intended for transport companies, refiners, forestry companies, the agricultural and agribusiness sectors as well as the public authorities, students, university teachers and researchers.
