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 charm as instruments for fixing the commercial and environmental demanding situations linked to attaining power sustainability and independence by utilizing fresh, renewable replacement strength. Taking a method engineering technique rooted within the gasoline and petrochemical fields, this ebook masterfully integrates insurance of present traditional approaches and rising techniques.
Topics lined include:
- Characterization and research of biofuels
- Process economics
- Chemistry of approach conversion
- Process engineering and layout and linked environmental technologies
- Energy balances and efficiencies
- Reactor designs and strategy configurations
- Energy fabrics and approach equipment
- Integration with different traditional fossil gasoline processes
- Byproduct utilization
- Governmental laws and guidelines and international trends
After an outline of the topic, the ebook 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 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 technological know-how and know-how desirous about constructing biofuels and bioenergy. It addresses the appliance of those and different disciplines, masking key problems with distinctive curiosity to gasoline technique engineers, gasoline scientists, and effort technologists, between others.
