The current upheaval in the energy sector, and the consequent potential implication for biofuels, have led the authors to write this book. The prime focus is Brazil whose historical experience has been, and continue to be, a source of inspiration worldwide.

The book is aimed at a wide readership. It examines the key historical development of biofuels in Brazil, current and future. The book investigates these key developments in detail.

The reader interested in biofuels and their wider implications, will be enriched by this unique experience. In a world where fossil fuels will, eventually, be phased out, biofuels represent a viable partial alternative in many countries. Biofuels represent a world of possibilities.
