Soaring oil prices have encouraged major consumers worldwide to sharply increase their use of “green” biofuel. These concerns have lead to reasearch for biodiesel as commerical alternative. Since edible oil demand is higher than its domestic production, in India this is not feasible to divert this oil for production of biodiesel. Under Indian conditions only such plant sources can be considered for biofuel, which produces non-edible oil in appreciable quantity and can be grown in large scale on non cropped marginal and wastelands. There are many tree species which bear seeds rich in oil and can serve as excellent feedstock for biodiesel production.
The book deals with cultivation practices of bio-fuel plants. Crops for waste land utilization, Bio-waste utilization as organic fertilizes, micropropagation protocols are other major themes of this book.
The book will be handy reference for students, academicians, researchers and people with little or no training in biofuel plants."
