The investigations to which this 275 pages monograph refers started more than three decades ago, and were related to the possibilities for utilization of alcohol in mixtures with gasoline or diesel fuel. The researchers from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Belgrade and Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Kragujevac, as well as from the "Crvena Zastava" Industry in Kragu- jevac, the DMB Engine Industry in Rakovica, and the Oil Refinery in Pan~evo have taken part in these investigations. Research of alternative fuels has continued to the present days and has been the subject of a large number of master and Ph. D. thesis, studies and projects, financed both by the industry and relevant ministries.
The monograph "Alternative fuels for IC engines in 21st century" is based on a study with the same title financed under the National Energy Efficiency Programme by the Ministry of Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia. It deals with the review of the available raw materials and their quantities needed for production of alternative fuels, as well as with the existing technologies and expected directions for development of new technologies for short and long term use to produce alternative fuels for IC engines. In addition to the contents of the study, this monograph is amended with two more chapters related to the direct engine tests and comprehensive investigations performed so far.
