      Biofuels and Bioenergy presents a broad, wide-ranging and informative treatment of biofuels. The book covers historical, economic, industrial, sociological and ecological/environmental perspectives as well as dealing with all the major scientific issues associated with this important topic. The Cost of Biofuels in Guatemala. The expansion of biofuels has contributed to spikes in food prices and a shortage of land for agriculture in poor corners of Asia, Africa and Latin America.

    The newest addition to the Green Chemistry and Chemical Engineering series from CRC Press, Biofuels and Bioenergy: Processes and Technologies provides a succinct but in-depth introduction to methods of development and use of biofuels and bioenergy. The book illustrates their great appeal as tools for solving the economic and environmental challenges associated with achieving energy. The two most common types of biofuels in use today are ethanol and biodiesel, both of which represent the first generation of biofuel technology. NREL Post Doc Brenna Black draws samples from a tubular bag photobioreactor, to inoculate new growth media, at the Algal Research Lab at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, CO.

    The book entitled ‘Biofuel from algae’ with ISBN: edited by Ashok Pandey, Duu-Jong Lee, Yusuf Chisti and Carlos R Soccol, provides the excellent review on the various strategies and large-scale cultivation of algal biomass with up to date state-of-art information and knowledge by the internationally recognized experts and subject peers in various areas of algal : Ravindra Prasad. This book presents important aspects on the large scale production of biofuels following a bio-refinery concept and its commercialization and sustainability issues. Hence, it is a useful resource to policy makers, policy analysts, techno-economic analysts and business managers who deal with commercialization and implementation of bio-based.
