en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 17 Mar 2017
The most comprehensive and up–to–date treatment of all the possible aspects for biofeedstock processing and the production of energy from biofeedstocks
Biofuels production is one of the most extensively studied fields in the energy sector that can provide an alternative energy source and bring the energy industry closer to sustainability. Biomass–based fuel production, or renewable fuels, are becoming increasingly important as a potential solution for man–made climate change, depleted oil reserves, and the dangers involved with hydraulic fracturing (or "fracking"). The price of oil will always be volatile and changeable, and, as long as industry and private citizens around the world need energy, there will be a need for alternative energy sources. The area known as "biofuels and biofeedstocks" is one of the most important and quickly growing pieces of the "energy pie."
But biofuels and biofeedstocks are constantly changing, and new processes are constantly being created, changed, and improved upon. The area is rapidly changing and always innovative. It is important, therefore, that books like the volumes in this series are published and the information widely disseminated to keep the industry informed of the state–of–the–art.
This first volume in this groundbreaking new series is a collection of papers from some of the world′s foremost authorities on biofeedstocks and biofuels, covering biofeedstocks and how they are processed. It is a must–have for any engineer, scientist, technician, or student working in this area.
This initial volume in the Advances in Biofeedstocks and Biofuels series:
  • Covers all the aspects of biofeedstocks and their suitability as an alternative energy source
  • Covers all the updated protocols for biofeedstock processing
  • Is the only book covering biofeestocks and their processes in such a comprehensive manner, including biodiesel, bioethanol, biomass, and the future of bioenergy
  • Is suitable not only for the engineer working with biofeedstocks, but as a textbook for graduate students, post–doctoral students, and researchers
