Biodiesel—a fuel substitute produced from vegetable oils, animal fats, or algae—is one of the most important renewable natural resources for agrarian countries. The justification for developing biodiesel as an alternate fuel is manifold, and rising crude oil prices and the vulnerability of energy security have made biodiesel necessary and inevitable. The Practical Handbook on Biodiesel Production and Properties has assembled and analyzed the recent trends of biodiesel research, production, and implementation. It includes practical guidance on the identification of plant resources and their distribution, botanical description, palynology, oil extraction, production process, and biodiesel yield. The production and usage of biodiesel will strengthen the agricultural sector, provide energy to remote areas without access to conventional energy, contribute towards economic development, and increase industrial activity. Drawing on both scientific and participatory processes, this book enables the successful utilization and commercialization of biofuel technology.

Cellulosic Energy Cropping Systems presents acomprehensive overview of how cellulosic energy crops can besustainably produced and converted to affordable energy throughliquid fuels, heat and electricity. The book begins with an introduction to cellulosic feedstocks,discussing their potential as a large-scale sustainable energysource, and technologies for the production of liquid fuels, heatand electricity. Subsequent chapters examine miscanthus,switchgrass, sugarcane and energy cane, sorghums and crop residues,reviewing their phylogeny, cultural practices, and opportunitiesfor genetic improvement. This is followed by a detailed focus onwoody crops, including eucalyptus, pine, poplar and willow.Critical logistical issues associated with both herbaceous andwoody feedstocks are reviewed, and alternate strategies forharvesting, transporting, and storing cellulosic materials are alsoexamined. The final sectionof the booktackles the challenge ofachieving long-term sustainability, addressing economic,environmental and social factors. Cellulosic Energy Cropping Systems is a valuable resourcefor academics, students and industry professionals working in thefield of biomass cultivation and conversion, bioenergy, cropscience and agriculture. Topics covered include: Identifying suitable cellulosic energy crops that are adaptedto a wide range of climates and soils Best management practices for sustainably growing, harvesting,storing, transporting and pre-processing these crops The development of integrated cellulosic energy croppingsystems for supplying commercial processing plants Challenges and opportunities for the long-term sustainabilityof cellulosic energy crops This book was conceived and initiated by David I.Bransby, Professor of Energy and Forage Crops in the Department ofCrop, Soil and Environmental Sciences at Auburn University,USA.
