Completely revised and updated, the third edition of this bestseller discusses the concept and ongoing development of using methanol and derived dimethyl ether as a transportation fuel, energy storage medium, and as a chemical raw material to replace fossil fuels. The contents have been expanded by 35% with new and up to date coverage on energy storage, methanol from biomass and waste products, as well as on carbon dioxide capture and recycling. Written by the late Nobel laureate George Olah, Alain Goeppert and G. K. Surya Prakash, this is an inspiring read for anyone concerned with the major…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
Completely revised and updated, the third edition of this bestseller discusses the concept and ongoing development of using methanol and derived dimethyl ether as a transportation fuel, energy storage medium, and as a chemical raw material to replace fossil fuels.
The contents have been expanded by 35% with new and up to date coverage on energy storage, methanol from biomass and waste products, as well as on carbon dioxide capture and recycling. Written by the late Nobel laureate George Olah, Alain Goeppert and G. K. Surya Prakash, this is an inspiring read for anyone concerned with the major challenge posed by environmental problems including global warming and ocean acidification due to massive increase in fossil fuel use. The book provides a comprehensive and sustainable solution to replace fossil fuels in the long run by chemical recycling of carbon dioxide through renewable methanol utilizing alternative energy sources such as solar, wind, hydro, geothermal and nuclear. The Methanol Economy is being progressively implemented in many parts of the world.

Autorenporträt
Born in 1927 in Budapest, Hungary, George A. Olah obtained his doctorate at the Technical University of Budapest, and was a Distinguished Professor and Director of the Loker Hydrocarbon Institute at the University of Southern California (USC). During his life, he received numerous awards and recognitions worldwide, including memberships in various academies of science and 12 honorary degrees. He has some 1,500 scientific papers, 20 books and more than 140 patents to his name. In 1994, Prof Olah was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on long-lived carbocations. He was a pioneer and a major proponent of the Methanol Economy concept. Unfortunately, Prof. Olah passed away in March 2017, before seeing the third edition of this book published. Alain Goeppert was born in 1974 in Strasbourg, France. After obtaining his diploma in chemistry from the University Robert Schuman in Strasbourg, he received his engineering degree from the Fachhochschule Aalen, Germany. He then returned to Strasbourg to study the reactivity of alkanes in strong acid systems under the direction of Prof Jean Sommer at the Université Louis Pasteur, earning his PhD in 2002. Subsequently, he joined the group of Professors. Olah and Prakash at the Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute and is now a research scientist. Dr. Goeppert's current research is focused on the transformation of methane and CO2 into more valuable products as well as CO2 capture and recycling technologies. Currently a Professor and Olah Nobel Laureate Chair in Hydrocarbon Chemistry, Director at the Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute and Chair of Chemistry at USC, G. K. Surya Prakash was born in 1953 in Bangalore, India. After receiving his bachelor and master degrees from India he obtained his PhD from the University of Southern California under the direction of Prof Olah in 1978. Professor Prakash has more than 770 scientific papers, 14 books and 90 patents to his name, and has received many accolades, including three American Chemical Society National Awards. His primary research interests are in superacid, hydrocarbon, synthetic organic & organofluorine chemistry, energy and catalysis areas. He is a co-proponent of the Methanol Economy concept with late Professor Olah for which he co-shared with him the 2013 Eric and Sheila Samson Prime Minister?s Prize for Alternative Fuels to Transportation from the State of Israel.
