Product Description


"It is extremely thorough, detailed, and well documented. Topics are explained in great detail. The book stands as one of the best published on the subject in recent times. It can be used by the professional or student alike, since the in-depth treatment of principles and practices allow information retrieval at different levels of complexity. It is a good techincal reference and will serve as an important textbook for many years." --JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY, March-April 2000 "This book provides an excellent and worthwhile text for anyone with an interest in practical ways to secure our future energy supplies." --BIOLOGICAL AGRICULTURE AND HORTICULTURE "This book will be useful to a wide range of teachers and lecturers. Those working in schools and colleges will find it a treasure store of useful information to enliven their teaching, especially as there are very useful figures and tables. Those working at a higher level will appreciate the rigorous nature of the work along with the extensive list of references." --CHEMISTRY IN BRITAIN, May 1999. "Klass offers a very thotough analysis of the need for biomass fuels, their production and use. It is a superb resource with an impressive review of the potential of many crops and resources to serve energy needs...a resource to be widely used and appreciated. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals; two-year technical program students." --CHOICE, 1999. "A good introductory volume for those requiring information on commercialising biomass energy products and on solid and liquid waste disposal energy recovery systems." --WASTE PLANNING, A MINERAL PLANNING PUBLICATION, March 1999.

HASH(0x9a457f20) out of 5 stars fantastic book and thorough review back to first principles 30 April 2011

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful review of the challenges facing biomass-based fuels, especially liquid transportation fuels. Klass covers the challenges going all the way back to photosynthetic efficiency. The bibliography is complete and references easily checked. If you are interested in really understanding biofuels, this is the book for you.

HASH(0x9586a864) out of 5 stars A TON of resources, but dry to read 19 Aug. 2010
By D. Burke - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There are many tables and charts that are VERY useful for biomass. Even though this book is old, a lot of the information is still good. I heard that the author passed away before finishing an updated revision.

This book is horrible if you read it cover-to-cover, (except for chapter 4, which was pretty interesting).
