With the depletion of oil resources as well as the negative environmental impact of fossil fuels, there is much interest in alternative energy sources. Focusing on some of the most important alternate energy sources for the foreseeable future, the Handbook of Plant-Based Biofuels provides state-of-the-art information on the status of the production of biofuels, in particular, bioethanol and biodiesel.
After profiling plant-based biofuels, the book gives an overview of the production of biofuels from biomass materials by thermochemical and biochemical methods.
This book covers the areas of fundamentals in energy conservation and its applications in selected industries. There are nine chapters in this book which have been written by leading experts in energy from all over the world. The topics range from energy fundamentals from cosmic radiation, tidal waves and dams. The chapters examine the potential of utilizing energy from sustainable resources and how energy consumption may be conserved from various new technologies.

Renewable energy sources such as solar power, wind power, hydroelectric power, geothermal
power, and so on have attracted much attention as alternatives to fossil fuels, because toxins
and pollutants are not produced by these sources. For this reason, these energy sources have
come to be known as clean energy.
Humanity is facing several critical global challenges at the beginning of the 21st century.
One of which includes the quest for alternative energy resources that mitigate
the dependence on fossil fuels. Whereas fossil fuels are available in situ at all times,
the utilisation of renewal energies has to cope with large temporal fl uctuations ranging
from seconds to seasons.
During the last two decades, increase in electricity demand and environmental
concern resulted in fast growth of power production from renewable sources. Wind
power is one of the most efficient alternatives. Due to rapid development of wind
turbine technology and increasing size of wind farms, wind power plays a significant
part in the power production in some countries.
With global populations on the rise and the increasing threat associated with climate change, the need for the development of low emission energy resources is clear. Geothermal energy, which originates from the underground heat of the earth (Sankaran, 2002), has the advantage of being a low-emission, baseload energy resource. Unlike other alternative energy resources, geothermal energy production does not fluctuate with time of day or season.
Alternative medicine is recognized as medical products and practices that do not belong to
the standard cares taken by medical doctors, doctors of osteopathy and allied health professionals.
Alternative medicine includes the mind-body interventions (i.e., meditation, yoga,
acupuncture, deep-breathing exercises, guided imageryAny of various techniques (such as a
series of verbal suggestions) used to guide another person or oneself in imagining sensations—
especially in visualizing an image in the mind—to bring about a desired physical response
(such as stress reduction).
Due to demands placed on natural resources globally and subsequent deterioration of the
environment, there is a need to source and develop appropriate technology to satisfy this
requirement. For decades mankind has largely depended on natural resources such fossil fuels to
meet the ever increasing energy demands. Realising the fi nite nature of these resources, emphasis
is now shifting to investigating alternate energy source governed by environmentally friendly
Chapter 17 - Natural resource and energy economics. In this chapter we start looking at the demand for natural resources, including energy, as the world’s population changes. First we will investigate the changes in the global population and what this might mean in terms of the availability of natural resources. In this analysis, resource consumption per capita is included. We will discuss the fact that economists don’t worry that the world will run out of energy and the alternative energies that might be available.

Like water, food, and air, electrical energy has become an integral
part of daily personal and business lives. People have become so accus-
tomed to fl icking a switch and having instant light, action, or communica-
tion that little thought is given to the process that produces this electrical
energy or how it gets to where it is used. It is unique in that practically all
that is produced is not stored but used instantly in the quantities that are
The increasing demand for energy worldwide, together with the depletion of crude oil
reserves, environmental threats due to greenhouse gas emissions and new national
and international legislation, is resulting in the imperative for petroleum-derived fuels
to be complemented or substituted by biofuels. Such an alternative, renewable,
biodegradable and nontoxic biofuel is biodiesel.
The book “Biodiesel: Feedstocks and Processing Technologies” is intended to provide
a professional look on the recent achievements and emerging trends in biodiesel
Wind power generation is considered as the most economic viable alternative within
the portfolio of renewable energy resources. Among their advantages are the large
number of potential sites for erection and the rapidly evolving technology with many
suppliers offering from the individual turbine set to even turnkey projects. The
disadvantages of wind energy include high capital costs and lack of controllability on
the discontinuous or intermittent resource.
This book is based on recent research work conducted by the authors dealing with the design
and development of active and passive microwave components, integrated circuits and
systems. It is divided into seven parts. In the first part comprising the first two chapters,
alternative concepts and equations for multiport network analysis and characterization are
provided. A thru-only de-embedding technique for accurate on-wafer characterization is
Due to demands placed on natural resources globally and subsequent deterioration of the environment, there is a need to source and develop appropriate technology to satisfy this requirement. For decades mankind has largely depended on natural resources such as fossil fuels to meet the ever increasing energy demands. Realizing the finite nature of these resources, emphasis is now shifting to investigating alternate energy source governed by environmentally friendly principles.
Biofuels such as bioethanol are becoming a viable alternative
to fossil fuels. Utilizing agricultural biomass for the production
of biofuel has drawn much interest in many science and
engineering disciplines. As one of the major crops, maize
offers promise in this regard. Compared to other crops with
biofuel potential, maize can provide both starch (seed) and
cellulosic (stover) material for bioethanol production.
