Biofuels for road transport: a seed to wheel perspective by Lucas Reijnders

By Lucas Reijnders

Biofuels for highway delivery: A Seed to Wheel Perspective presents a assessment of the historical past, the present prestige and the impression of biofuels utilized in street delivery, around the complete ‘seed-to-wheel’ existence cycle of those fuels. Successive chapters disguise many matters suitable to the present debate on biofuels, corresponding to price, pageant with foodstuff creation, contribution to power safety, use of traditional assets, and environmental impression. the ultimate bankruptcy addresses universal matters approximately biofuels, together with questions about sustainability and govt policy.

Biofuels for street delivery: A Seed to Wheel Perspective is a worthy reference for pro engineers, researchers and postgraduate scholars keen on biofuels, renewable power (including bioenergy) and the car industry.

Still, it has been argued that as there are many sources of lignocellulose, it may well be that the price of feedstocks will be more stable than in case of starch or oil crops. This, however, is not necessarily relevant for production units turning out lignocellulosic biofuels. These may well restrict themselves to a limited range of feedstocks. g. Nathan 2007; Hayes 2008; Olofsson et al. 2008). On the other hand, it may well be that further technological development may allow for the use of broader ranges of lignocellulosic feedstocks.

In 1899/1900, electric motorcars outsold other types of cars in the USA (Høyer 2008), electric taxis were then highly popular and between 1900 and 1920, electric vans were important in intra-urban and suburban transport of a variety of goods in the USA (Mom 1997; Mom and Kirsch 2001). All in all, the 1880–1925 period was a golden age for electric cars in the USA and parts of Western Europe (Mom 1997; Høyer 2008). In the 1940s, vans used for the German postal services and for milk and bread delivery in Britain were usually electric (Høyer 2008).

The methods to produce H2 with the help of micro-organisms would often require closed systems (Rupprecht et al. 2006). This is necessary for the capture and removal of H2 , which may inhibit H2 production, maintain anaerobic conditions and be highly conducive to limiting infection by unwanted organisms, but limits the scope for large-scale production. 6 Biofuel-Based Electricity for Transport As pointed out before, about 1% of primary energy use for transport worldwide concerns electricity (de la Rue du Can and Price 2008).
