Description

Biofuels and Biorefining offers readers a holistic view of sustainable biofuels production from fundamental technologies to process intensification, while considering social, environmental, and economic impacts. This two-volume set addresses all aspects of biofuels production and co-production with value-added products and combines that with process intensification and optimization, providing an integrated guide to the cost effective and sustainable production of biofuels for future energy sustainability.

Volume 2: Application and Assessment of Intensified Technologies (Vol. 2) considers intensification and optimization processes for biofuels and biomass-derived products in single and biorefinery schemes. Chapter one addresses the fundamental concepts of process intensification and its importance to biofuel production processes. Chapters 2-5 discuss the production processes for liquid biofuels, introducing all feasible intensification alternatives for each process. Chapter 6 applies process intensification methods to the production of value-added products. Chapters 7 to 9 discuss the importance of detailed CFD-based studies, controllability studies, and strategies for risk analysis in intensified processes. Chapter 10 introduces the concept of biorefinery for the co-production of biofuels/biomass derived value-added products, and the importance of process intensification in the biorefinery scheme. Finally, chapters 11 to 13 discuss how to ensure the sustainability of the intensified process and minimize the societal impact of biorefineries through various strategies including supply chain optimization and life cycle analysis. Each chapter is supported by industry case studies addressing the key aspects and impacts of intensification and optimization processes.

Biofuels and Biorefining provides an integrated approach to biofuels production and process intensification that is useful to researchers involved in all aspects of bioenergy, particularly those interested in cost reduction, environmental impact, and enhanced production.
