The most comprehensive and up-to-date treatment available of all aspects of biofuels production from biomass or waste material

With fossil fuels becoming more and more expensive and less accessible, alternative sources of energy are needed for our planet's growing energy needs. Biofuels are quickly becoming a cleaner, more economic, and more accessible energy source in many countries. Continued research into development of biofuel technologies and production methods is needed to enhance the role of biofuels as a global alternative to fossil fuels. Biofuels Production highlights the current ongoing progress relating to the development of second- and third-generation biofuels. A lot of attention has been focused on the first generation of biofuels, especially bio-ethanol, the most successful product. However, as production of ethanol occurs from sources used as food by humans, new substrates of biofuels are being searched. This book sheds light on the current issues surrounding second- and third-generation biofuels.

Biofuels Production:

  • Covers all aspects of biofuels and their production methods
  • Covers all updated protocols for biofuels production
  • Offers the only comprehensive treatment of biofuels and their production, including biodiesel, bio-ethanol, bio-hydrogen, bio-methane, bio-butanol, and others as well as the microbes that have helped in the development of these biofuels
  • Is suitable not only for the engineer working with biofuels, but also as a textbook for graduate students, post-doctoral students, and researchers

Biofuels Production also details the basic mechanisms underlying the formation of biofuels.

With an emphasis on the advancement of carefully planned biomass utilization schemes, biological waste treatment, the thermochemical conversion of biomass, liquid and gaseous biofuel production, and many emerging issues such as adapting to climate change, this book will provide a platform for developing existing techniques and policies for using biofuels in a sustainable manner. The aim of this book is to advance and disseminate knowledge in all areas of biofuel production to reduce environmental impact, while enhancing its economic viability and efficiency. Each chapter has been rigorously peer-reviewed by three or more experts before being accepted for publication.
