Progress in Biomass Conversion, Volume 5 aims to represent the multidisciplinary nature of the biomass community. The book discusses the hydroprocessing of biomass tars for liquid engine fuels; fuel characteristics of wood and nonwood biomass fuels; and the factors influencing dilute sulfuric acid prehydrolysis of southern red oak wood. The text also describes the energy costs of increased organics recovery for chemical by-products in Kraft pulp mills; the microeconomic approaches to biomass fuel pricing; and fuel characteristics of selected species of beached logs in Southeastern Alaska. An assessment of the costs and benefits of recovering logging residue for energy use and a review of biomass gasification technology are also encompassed. Chemical engineers, agriculturists, and forest scientists will find the book invaluable.
