Overview

This comprehensive dictionary comprises over 1300 definitions and brief articles to provide an extremely useful ready-reference work on solid, liquid, and gaseous fuels. It includes information on the scenes of production of many fuels, such as major coal reserves and large oil and gas fields. The dictionary addresses economics with entries on all major indices for oil, coal, and natural gas pricing. It examines the political perspective, covering the oil-producing countries and OPEC; environmental issues also feature, as do entries on chemical compounds, trade names, industrial processes and much more. Users of the Dictionary will gain an appreciation of the development of fuel and energy technology and sense the continuity or, in some cases, revival of ideas. The Dictionary of Energy and Fuels is a reliable reference work on fuel and energy which will remain of great usefulness.
