Most vehicles run on fossil fuels, and this presents a major emissions problem as demand for fuel continues to increase. Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicle Technologies gives an overview of key developments in advanced fuels and vehicle technologies to improve the energy efficiency and environmental impact of the automotive sector.

Part I considers the role of alternative fuels such as Price: $ Publisher Summary. This chapter presents the principles of biorefining. The biorefinery concept embraces a wide range of technologies able to separate biomass resources (wood, grasses, corn, etc.) into their building blocks, (carbohydrates, proteins, fats, etc.) which can be converted to value-added products, biofuels, and chemicals.

  Alternative fuels and their application to combustion engines January Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers Part D Journal of Automobile Engineering (1)   Same as like petroleum fuels, bio fuels can have environmental impacts at all stages of their production and use. Relative to fossil fuels, however, the impacts resulting from refining, transporting and using bio fuels are generally significantly smaller. Moreover, there are ways to improve the resource efficiency and impacts of these activities.   12 alternative 1.

  Logistics networks need to handle globally growing transportation volumes in cost efficient and sustainable configurations. This research explores the impact of the oil price on the optimal degree of centralization of logistics networks through the fluctuation of transportation costs. The impact of the degree of centralization on greenhouse gas emissions of transportation is evaluated.   The presented book provides an overview of the most widely used alternative fuels in the power supply systems in spark-ignition engines and compression-ignition engines, such as LPG, CNG and RME, including the assessment of their operational usefulness, especially in terms of environmental impact in urban traffic. The possibilities of optimizing the ignition processes in engines . 3 Alternative Fuels. This chapter discusses the fuel production and use associated with striving to meet the overall study goals of a 50 percent reduction in petroleum use by and an 80 percent reduction in petroleum use and in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the light-duty vehicle (LDV) fleet by compared to the corresponding values in introduction of new technologies and transport concepts such as alternative fuel, eco-driving, early morning-distribution system, vehicle utilization and avoidance of empty trips, environmental Management Systems (ISO , ISO ) may offer reduced emissions per vehicle, or encourage switching to more environment-friendly modes.
