Do It Yourself Guide to Biodiesel: Your Alternative Fuel Solution for Saving Money, Reducing Oil Dependency, and Helping the Planet. From: Gulf Coast Books (Memphis, TN, U.S.A.). The development and use of sustainable and alternative fuels (syngas, biogas, biodiesel, bio-oil, hydrogen) derived from sources other than petroleum is needed due to the limited fossil fuel resources, the need for reduction of atmospheric greenhouse gas emissions, energy security, and to meet the future high energy demand due to population growth.

New alternative fuels that can be produced Author: Chaouki Ghenai, Abrar Inayat. Alternative fuels are derived from sources other than petroleum. Most are produced domestically, reducing our dependence on imported oil, and some are derived from renewable sources.

Often, they produce less pollution than gasoline or diesel. Ethanol is produced domestically from corn and other crops. It produces less greenhouse gas (GHG. alternative fuels that are making their ways to the market. These alternative fuels include such things as propane, natural gas, electric hybrids, hydrogen fuel cells, and biodiesel.

Students will probably have heard of some of these alternative fuels, but they may not understand how and why they are better then ordinary gasoline. The. No prior knowledge of alternative fuels is necessary. Basic information on the various alternative fuels and objective data on the costs of converting, fueling, and operating alternatively-fueled vehicles is covered in this book.
