However warm, cosy and no-doubt stylish they make us feel, we have to question the place of wood fires in towns and cities. To cover the widening gap between supply and demand, the region is increasingly relying on global resources, which are also becoming increasingly limited.
Soil degradation forces farmers to look for new land. The p—V diagram is a simplified and idealised representation of the events involved in a Diesel engine cycle, arranged to illustrate the similarity with a Carnot cycle.

Biofuels: Biomass is converted into transportation fuels such as ethanol, methanol, biodiesel and additives for reformulated gasoline.
Biofuels are used in. Grass and other tree species such as jatropha have widely been exploited in the production of biofuels in the search for clean and sustainable energy source (Simmons). The resultant ethanol produced from plant materials is used in form of an additive to petrol to form gasohol which improves can be.
