The 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 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 experts
