Vegetable Oil: Biofuel Technology, Volume One examines the conversion processes involved in the production of biofuels from vegetable oils. With a strong focus on methodologies and protocols, the book provides step-by-step guidance on a comprehensive range of production pathways for liquid and gaseous biofuels. The first part of the book provides an overview of present vegetable oil production. Subsequent chapters describe the key production pathways, including pyrolysis, decarboxylation, deoxygenation, catalytic cracking processes, esterification, trans-esterification, anaerobic digestion, catalytic pyrolysis, and more. The economic potential of different vegetable oil feedstocks is discussed within each chapter. Finally, chapters are dedicated to sustainability, examining the environmental and socioeconomic impact of production, with an emphasis on GHG emission reduction. This book provides readers with the latest developments in the production of biofuels from vegetable oils, which will be of interest to students, researchers, and industry professionals involved in bioenergy and renewable energy, and may be of interest to interdisciplinary teams working across biotechnology, chemistry, chemical engineering, environmental science and sustainability sciences.
