The latest addition to the Green Chemistry and Chemical Engineering sequence from CRC Press, Biofuels and Bioenergy: techniques and Technologies presents a succinct yet in-depth advent to tools of improvement and use of biofuels and bioenergy. The publication illustrates their nice attraction as instruments for fixing the industrial and environmental demanding situations linked to attaining strength sustainability and independence by using fresh, renewable replacement strength. Taking a technique engineering procedure rooted within the gas and petrochemical fields, this ebook masterfully integrates insurance of present traditional procedures and rising techniques.

Topics lined include:

  • Characterization and research of biofuels

  • Process economics

  • Chemistry of method conversion

  • Process engineering and layout and linked environmental technologies

  • Energy balances and efficiencies

  • Reactor designs and technique configurations

  • Energy fabrics and technique equipment

  • Integration with different traditional fossil gasoline processes

  • Byproduct utilization

  • Governmental rules and rules and worldwide trends

After an summary of the topic, the booklet discusses crop oils, biodiesel, and algae fuels. It examines ethanol from corn and from lignocelluloses after which explores quickly pyrolysis and gasification of biomass. Discussing the way forward for biofuel creation, 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 expertise keen on constructing biofuels and bioenergy. It addresses the applying of those and different disciplines, protecting key problems with particular curiosity to gas approach engineers, gas scientists, and effort technologists, between others.
