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 the selection of new technologies to make biofuel cost-effective and move toward a carbon-neutral approach. It provides an evidence-based outline of how additives and nanotechnology chemically change biofuels' quality and effectiveness, including new and innovative approaches, such as nanomaterials and various nano-additives.
- It provides an overview of biowaste as a sustainable source in the field of biofuel production
- It includes effective conversion parameters of the biowaste feedstocks and their classification
- It summarizes current research into the development and exploitation of new biofuel sources
- It discusses the improvement of pilot scale scalability, chemical processing, and design flow
- It presents relevant and realistic global explanations of biowaste management techniques for biofuels
This book is aimed at senior undergraduate and graduate students, and researchers in bioprocessing, chemical engineering, and biotechnology.
