  • Transport Fuels from Australia's Gas Resourcesby Robert Clark; Mark J. Thomson

    UNSW Press 2014; US$ 39.99

    The transport sector in Australia depends heavily on imported oil-based fuels. With this comes the ever-present risk of oil supply shortages. But Australia is gas-rich and oil-poor, so it makes practical sense to assess how our own gas resources can be used to produce these fuels. Natural gas can be used directly as a fuel, blended with diesel in modified... more...
