Abstract:

It has been suggested frequently that the solar energy stored in green plants and organic wastes could be tapped to provide an alternative to the dwindling resources of fossil fuels. The advantage would be a fuel source that is renewable and available in our own time. This paper investigates the amounts of energy that might be made available from organic sources, the approximate cost of producing it and converting it to a convenient fuel, and some of the implications of a large-scale agro-energy industry.
