Biomass to Biofuels and Waste to Energy
Bioenergy: Biomass to Biofuels and Waste to Energy, Second Edition, examines current and emerging feedstocks and advanced processes and technologies that enable the development of all possible alternative energy sources, including solid (wood energy, grass energy, and other biomass), liquid (biodiesel, algae biofuel, ethanol), and gaseous/electric (biogas, syngas, bioelectricity). Divided into seven parts, the book gives thorough consideration to feedstocks, biomass production and utilization, lifecycle analysis, Energy Return on Invested (EROI), integrated sustainability assessments, conversions technologies, biofuels economics and policy. In addition, contributions from leading industry professionals and academics provide readers with a comprehensive resource that connects theory to implementation.
Engineers, researchers and graduate students in the bioenergy field will find valuable, practical information that can be applied to implementing renewable energy projects, choosing among competing feedstocks, technologies, and products. The book will also serve as a basic resource for civic leaders, economic development professionals, farmers, investors, fleet managers, and reporters interested in an organized introduction to the language, feedstocks, technologies, and products in the bio-based renewable energy world.
