"In my opinion, this book will serve as a useful reference for those involved in the field of fuels."
– Gary F. Bennett, Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, University of Toledo, in Journal of Hazardous Materials, July 2007
— This comprehensive new dictionary comprises well over 1300 definitions and brief articles to provide an extremely useful reference on solid, liquid, and gaseous fuels. The Dictionary of Energy and Fuels contains information on production sites such as major coal reserves and large oil and gas fields. This easy-to-use resource provides entries on chemical compounds, trade names, industrial processes, and current topics such as enhanced oil recovery. It addresses economics, including entries on all the major indices for oil, coal, and natural gas pricing. The book also examines geopolitical views, covering OPEC and environmental issues, and the history of fuel usage and industry developments.
