Sustainability in Biofuel Production Technology

Explore current challenges and the latest technologies in biofuel production

In Sustainability in Biofuel Production Technology, a team of engineers and chemists delivers a thorough and accessible exploration of the source of renewable energy biofuels poised to help conserve natural resources and limit the impact of fossil fuel use. The book offers detailed information about the challenges and trends in biodiesel production and includes contributions from leading researchers in the field of biodiesel production.

Readers will explore aviation biofuels, biofuel production technologies, reactor design and safety considerations, and the modelling and simulation of biofuel production as they move through the book’s 14 chapters. The authors also analyze the performance of biofuels along with cost estimations and mathematical modeling of various process parameters.

Readers will also find:

  • A thorough introduction to biofuels, including their history, generation, classification, and relevant technologies
  • In-depth presentations of the production technologies of biofuels, including chemical and biological production processes
  • Comprehensive explorations of the utilization of biofuels in aviation, including performance analyses and safety considerations
  • Fulsome discussions of key issues and challenges in biofuels production pathways and the environmental effects of biofuels

Perfect for academic researchers and industrial scientists working in the biofuels, bioenergy, catalysis, and materials science sectors, Sustainability in Biofuel Production Technology will also be suitable for members of regulatory bodies in the bioenergy sector.
