By Sunggyu Lee,Y.T. Shah

The most up-to-date addition to the Green Chemistry and Chemical Engineering sequence from CRC Press, Biofuels and Bioenergy: strategies and Technologies offers a succinct yet in-depth advent to tools of improvement and use of biofuels and bioenergy. The e-book illustrates their nice allure as instruments for fixing the commercial and environmental demanding situations linked to reaching power sustainability and independence by using fresh, renewable replacement power. Taking a procedure engineering method rooted within the gasoline and petrochemical fields, this ebook masterfully integrates insurance of present traditional techniques and rising techniques.

Topics coated include:

  • Characterization and research of biofuels

  • Process economics

  • Chemistry of procedure conversion

  • Process engineering and layout and linked environmental technologies

  • Energy balances and efficiencies

  • Reactor designs and strategy configurations

  • Energy fabrics and technique equipment

  • Integration with different traditional fossil gasoline processes

  • Byproduct utilization

  • Governmental rules and regulations and worldwide trends

After an summary of the topic, the publication discusses crop oils, biodiesel, and algae fuels. It examines ethanol from corn and from lignocelluloses after which explores quick pyrolysis and gasification of biomass. Discussing the way forward for biofuel construction, it additionally describes the conversion of waste to biofuels, bioproducts, and bioenergy and concludes with a dialogue of combined feedstock. Written for readers with college-level backgrounds in chemistry, biology, physics, and engineering, this reference explores the technology and know-how occupied with constructing biofuels and bioenergy. It addresses the appliance of those and different disciplines, overlaying key problems with designated curiosity to gas approach engineers, gas scientists, and effort technologists, between others.
