Vegetable Oil in Energy: The Conversion of Seed Oil to Biofuel, Volume Two presents the latest catalysts, composites, methodologies and technologies used in the conversion of seed oil to biofuel. With an emphasis on feedstock, the book discusses the availability, potential future output, and production pathways for edible and non-edible seed oil. Sections provide an overview of production pathways for seed oil conversion to biofuel and examine engine performance of common seed oil-based biofuels. Chapters also discuss availability and cultivation, production pathways and performance optimization. Feedstock considered include jatrophra, lemon strip, palm, rapeseed, sunflower, olive, coconut, peanut, soya, cotton, and more. The book's final chapters examine the sustainability of vegetable oil as a viable long-term replacement for fossil fuels. This comprehensive resource 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.
