Arlington, VA (Vocus) May 4, 2010
Xlibris, the leading print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announces today the release of BIOMETHANE, a new book about the large scale introduction of a commercially available biofuel technology, well suited to replace imported oil as a domestic energy source in road transportation, and able to promote energy independence, national security and environmental sustainability, as well as becoming a critical component of the third industrial revolution – green industries and jobs. This release is authored by Dr. John G. Ingersoll.
BIOMETHANE is a comprehensive guide written for people who wish to learn more about the fascinating technology of this renewable biofuel, which is expected and believed to play a crucial role in the sustainable development of the planet in the twenty-first century. The level of the book is more information-orientated and less technical in nature in order to appeal to the widest possible audience. It provides sufficient detail to be of value to (a) policy makers in the government—federal, state, or local—as they make hard choices from among a myriad of conflicting requirements, lack of information, and occasional misinformation, and (b) the business community to identify new opportunities for development.
This release can be used as an educational tool for any member of the public with concerns about environmental, financial, or national security issues emanating from the ever-increasing dependency of the United States on imported fuels. It will help people realize that the longer these issues are left unaddressed, the more pronounced and severe their impact would be on the well-being of future generations.
With its compelling analysis, BIOMETHANE has the potential to spark not only a new wave of debates about energy and the environment, but also to give citizens the necessary knowledge to implement change on all levels of society. Readers who wish to order a copy of this engaging book are encouraged to visit Xlibris.com or call (888) 795-4274 today.
