Conversion of renewable fuels

Fuels are very versatile and energy-rich energy sources. Currently, society uses almost exclusively fossil fuels, which will soon be not available any more. Fuels produced from renewable energy sources then have to replace various fossil fuels in different industry sectors. Hence, the conversion between various renewable fuels will become very important in the future.
