What role will biofuels play in the scientific portfolio that might bring energy independence and security, revitalize rural infrastructures, and wean us off of our addiction to oil? The shifting energy landscape of the 21st century, with its increased demand for renewable energy technology, poses a worrying intellectual challenge. Discussing the multidisciplinary study of bioenergy and its potential for replacing fossil fuels in the coming decades, Introduction to Biofuels provides a roadmap for understanding the broad sweep of technological, sociological, and energy  policy issues that intermingle and intertwine.

About The Author

David Mousdale was educated at Oxford (BA, biochemistry, 1974) and Cambridge (PhD, 1979). He researched growth control and integration mechanisms in plants and plant cell cultures before turning to enzyme response to xenobiotics, including the first isolation of a glyphosate-sensitive enzyme from a higher plant.

In the microbial physiology and biochemistry of industrial fermentations, he developed metabolic analysis to analyze changes in producing strains developed by serendipity (i.e., classical strain improvement) or by rational genetic engineering. He became managing director of beocarta Ltd in 1997.
