By Robert C. Brown

Thermochemical pathways for biomass conversion provide possibilities for swift and effective processing of various feedstocks into fuels, chemical compounds and gear. Thermochemical processing has a number of benefits relative to biochemical processing, together with larger feedstock flexibility, conversion of either carbohydrate and lignin into items, swifter response charges, and the power to provide a various choice of fuels.

Thermochemical Processing of Biomass examines the massive variety of attainable pathways for changing biomass into fuels, chemical substances and gear by utilizing warmth and catalysts. The publication offers a pragmatic assessment of the most recent study during this quickly constructing box, highlighting the basic chemistry, technical functions and working expenses linked to thermochemical conversion strategies.

Bridging the space among learn and useful software, this publication is written for engineering pros within the biofuels undefined, in addition to educational researchers operating in bioenergy, bioprocessing expertise and chemical engineering.

Topics lined include:

  • Combustion
  • Gasification
  • Fast Pyrolysis
  • Hydrothermal Processing
  • Upgrading Syngas and Bio-oil
  • Catalytic Conversion of Sugars to Fuels
  • Hybrid Thermochemical/Biochemical Processing
  • Economics of Thermochemical Conversion
