"This book was written in the belief that learning about techniques can enable more people to understand biofuel technology. Moreover, production and usage of biodiesel will strengthen the agricultural sector, provide energy to remote areas where conventional energy cannot be taken, contribute toward grassroots poverty alleviation, and increase industrial activity. The book draws on both scientific and participatory processes, supported by the experience of authors from across the subject's field"--Provided by publisher.
