    In this edited volume, Verma and Dubey collate important discussions from international researchers to address major innovations in the sustainable industrial applications of biomass wastes including processing fundamentals, extraction, purification, properties, and industrial applications.


    The amount of biomass waste is rising quickly, and such waste offers numerous advantages for sustainable development, particularly for environmentally friendly industrial use. This book therefore addresses this situation by providing a comprehensive overview of the sustainable industrial uses of biomass wastes. To enable ease of use and to facilitate readers’ ability to implement this information in real-world contexts, the book is divided into three sections. First, the introduction discusses biomass wastes and their classification, processing, sustainability, and more and the production of bioproducts. The second part addresses classification in more detail in contexts including forestry, agriculture, animal, industrial, municipal, and food processing wastes. Lastly, the third section addresses applications in areas such as electricity generation; lubrication, adhesion, and anticorrosion; green energy storage; catalysis, and more. Through this approach, readers will gain a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities of biomass wastes and will be able to apply their knowledge in a range of contexts, whether in further research or in industrial and other real-world scenarios.


    This book is a vital resource for a broad readership including students, academics, research professionals, research enterprises, R&D and defence research laboratories. Especially, those researching and working in fields such as chemical engineering, material science and engineering, nanotechnology, energy, and environmental engineering will benefit greatly from the discussions within.
