Springer Science+Business Media New York, 2013, VI, 631 p. 161 illus., 85 illus. in color. — ISBN 978-1-4614-5721-3, ISBN 978-1-4614-5722-0 (eBook), DOI 10.1007/978-1-4614-5722-0.Presents up-to-date estimates of fossil reserves and resources for coal, gas, and petroleum Covers recovery technologies for unconventional resources such as shale gas and shale oil, coal-to-liquids, gas-to-liquids, and natural gas hydrates Describes current developments aimed at improving efficiency and minimizing environmental impact, such as new designs for internal combustion engines and technologies for scrubbing emissions Reviews global developments in carbon capture and sequestration Provides an excellent introduction for those entering the field, as well as new insights for advanced researchers and industry expertsThe word sustainability shares its root with sustenance. In the context of modern society, sustenance is inextricably linked to the use of energy. Fossil Energy provides an authoritative reference on all aspects of this key resource, which currently contributes to nearly 85% of global energy consumption. Gathering 16 peer-reviewed entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology, this volume represents an essential resource for scientists and engineers working on the development of energy resources, fossil or alternative. Written by recognized authorities in the field, the chapters provide comprehensive, yet concise coverage of fundamentals, current areas of research, and goals for the future to support real progress in sustainability science and technology.Presents up-to-date estimates of fossil reserves and resources for coal, gas, and petroleumCovers recovery technologies for unconventional resources such as shale gas and shale oil, coal-to-liquids, gas-to-liquids, and natural gas hydratesDescribes current developments aimed at improving efficiency and minimizing environmental impact, such as new designs for internal combustion engines and technologies for scrubbing emissionsReviews global developments in carbon capture and sequestrationProvides an excellent introduction for those entering the field, as well as new insights for advanced researchers and industry expertsContent Level » Upper undergraduate Keywords » CO2 - Coal Preparation - Coal Reserves - Coal to Liquids - Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology - Fossil Energy Book - Fossil Reserves - Gas Reserves -Gas to Liquid - Internal Combustion Engines - Mining Industry Sustainability - Natural Gas -Natural Gas Power - Oil Sands Exploration - Oil Shale Processing - Petroleum Refining Environmental Effects - Petroleum Reserves - Pulverized Coal-fired Boilers Pollution Control Related subjects » Energy Technology - Fossil Fuels - Geology - Nature Conservation & Biodiversity - Sustainable DevelopmentTable of ContentsFossil Energy, Introduction Oil And Natural Gas: Global Resources Petroleum and Oil Sands Exploration and Production Petroleum Refining and Environmental Control and Environmental Effects Oil Shale Processing, Chemistry and Technology Developments in Internal Combustion Engines Alaska Gas Hydrate Research and Field Studies Gas to Liquids Technologies Coal and Peat: Global Resources Coal Preparation Coal to Liquids Mining Industries and their Sustainable Management CO2 Reduction and Coal-Based Electricity Generation Pulverized Coal-Fired Boilers and Pollution Control Natural Gas Power CO2 Capture and SequestrationIndex
