A Handbook of Bioenergy Crops by V N Meena Devi, G S Vijayalakshmi And P N Prasad
Book Summary:

This book is done on a purpose to illustrate the different crops currently available and that could be grown as sources for food, medicine, industrial purposes and as a renewable raw material for energy. In olden days, all products used by Man were based on renewable resources. Because of the biotechnological, industrial revolution and rapid development in chemical industry during this century, most of the renewable products disappeared, or their market share was significantly reduced. Synthetic product mainly derived from non-renewable fossil fuels were cheaper, offered better material properties and more attractive to the consumer than natural products perceived as old-fashioned. Now renewable resources sources can afford a considerable market share in areas because of the development in the field of biotechnology, where they offered specific advantages.
