Char and Carbon Materials Derived from Biomass: Production, Characterization and Applications provides an overview of biomass char production methods (pyrolysis, hydrothermal carbonization, etc.), along with the characterization techniques typically used (Scanning Electronic Microscopy, X-Ray Fluorescence, Nitrogen adsorption, etc.) In addition, the book includes a discussion of the various properties of biomass chars and their suitable recovery processes, concluding with a demonstration of applications. As biomass can be converted to energy, biofuels and bioproducts via thermochemical conversion processes, such as combustion, pyrolysis and gasification, this book is ideal for professionals in energy production and storage fields, as well as professionals in waste treatment, gas treatment, and more.

Key Features

  • Provides a discussion of sources of biomass feedstocks, such as agricultural, woody plants and food processing residue
  • Discusses the various production processes of biomass chars, including pyrolysis and hydrothermal carbonization
  • Explores various applications of biomass chars within different industries, including energy and agronomy


Researchers and engineers in the field of materials for renewable energy, agriculture, fuel processing, and environmental science
