From the Back Cover:

Discover how to fully reap the benefits of biomass and alternate fuels

Biomass and alternate fuels offer cleaner, renewable ways to produce energy, can greatly reduce operating costs, and are mostly carbon neutral. Biomass and Alternate Fuel Systems: An Engineering and Economic Guide provides readers with an understanding of these environmentally friendly fuels alongside step-by-step guidance for converting these fuels into energy. In addition to biomass, the book covers such alternate fuels as wood, biogas, reclaimed oil, used tires, cooking oil, solid wastes, and coke. Case studies help readers understand how they can install and operate energy systems to reap all the benefits of biomass and alternate fuels.

Everything readers need to know to take full advantage of biomass and alternate fuels is covered, including:

  • Choosing and installing the right equipment to convert fuels into energy
  • Evaluating the impact on capital, operating, and production costs
  • Limiting emissions with pollution control equipment
  • Using heat exchangers effectively
  • Comparing the costs and carbon emissions of conventional and alternate fuels
  • Complying with EPA and OSHA regulations

The need for renewable, alternate energy systems has never been greater. With Biomass and Alternate Fuel Systems, readers have a "how-to" manual that enables them to choose the right fuel and install the right energy system to meet their organization's particular needs.
