This companion volume to "Alternative Engines for Road Vehicles", discusses the future prospects for conventional and alternative fuels for road vehicle applications. The implications of the energy and emissions from the whole fuel cycle (from production to distribution and final usage) are considered, as are vehicular fuel consumption and exhaust emission characteristics. The book is structured such that each chapter, describing a particular alternative fuel, is self-contained. The reader is able to read about a particular subject that is of interest without having to refer to other chapters to gain a full understanding of the fuel's characteristics, notable developments and demonstration programmes underway worldwide. The final chapter provides an overview and inter-comparison of all the fuels discussed, including point-of-use and life cycle emissions, global warming impacts, fuel storage implications and likely costs. This volume should be of interest to mechanical and petrochemical engineers and anyone with a technical interest in the future developments of motor vehicle fuels.
