Delivering Low-Carbon Biofuels with Bioproduct Recovery: An Integrated Approach to Commercializing Bioelectrochemical Systems explores current pathways to produce both the bioenergy from bioelectroactive fuel cells (BEFC) and their valuable byproducts using bioelectrochemical systems (BES) approaches. The book focuses on key methods, current designs and established variants of biofuels processing approaches, also including case studies. Chapters review crucial aspects of bioreactor design methodologies, operating principles, bioreactor susceptibility and systems constraints. The book supports vulnerability and hotspot detection through simulation and modeling approaches. Concluding chapters establish drivers for realizable scale-up and commercialization of bioelectrochemical systems.

Key Features

  • Discusses all major commercially viable biofuels, along with their high-value byproducts
  • Focuses on frontiers of low carbon biofuel technologies with commercialization and scale-up potential
  • Supported by schematics that outline integration with bioelectrochemical systems (BES) approaches


Graduate and PhD level students and early career researchers in the field of Electrochemistry, Biology, Environmental engineering, Industrial chemistry, Energy, bioenergy.
