Book Description

This book reflects the new dimension of biofuel production from its introductory principles to the advancements from a future prospective. It summarizes the rationale for changes in liquid fuel utilization and selection of new technologies with an aim to make biofuel cost-effective to move towards a carbon-neutral approach. It provides an evidence-based outline of how additives and nanotechnology chemically change the quality and effectiveness of biofuels including new and innovative approaches such as nanomaterials and various nano-additives.


  • Provides an overview of the biowaste as a sustainable source in the field of biofuel production.
  • Includes effective conversion parameters of the biowaste feedstocks and their classification.
  • Summarizes current research into the development and exploitation of new biofuel sources.
  • Discusses improvement of pilot scale scalability, and chemical processing and design flow.
  • Presents relevant and realistic global explanations on biowaste management techniques for biofuels.

This book is aimed at senior undergraduate, graduate students, and researchers in bioprocessing, chemical engineering, and biotechnology.
