Hydrogen and other alternative fuels for air and ground transportation
J. Wiley & Sons, 1995 - Technology & Engineering - 206 pages
Foremost authorities from diverse industrial and research sectors present the rationale and the possibilities for alternative fuels into air and ground transportation. The criteria for all work on alternative fuels is based mainly on two considerations: the questionable availability of conventional fuels at acceptable prices and the need to contribute to reduction of atmosphere pollution.
