  • About the Edition

    The development of renewable and sustainable lignocellulosic biofuels is currently receiving worldwide attention and investment. Despite decades of research, there remain significant challenges to be overcome before these biofuels can be produced in large volumes at competitive prices. One obstacle is the lack of efficient and affordable catalytic systems to dissolve and hydrolyze polysaccharides into sugars. These sugars are then fed to microrganisms and fermented into biofuels. The price of these catalysts, be they biological, thermochemical, or chemical in nature, represent one of the largest costs in the conversion process. There are a number of catalytic schemes, each with their own advantages and disadvantages, available. This book presents a general yet substantial review of the most promising processes and the spectrum of biomass pretreatment, enzymes, chemical catalysts, and hybrid approaches of hydrolyzing biomass into fermentable sugars. It is the only currently available book that compares the biochemical, chemical, and thermochemical conversion processes to biofuel production.

    In response to the global increase in the use of biofuels as substitute transportation fuels, advanced chemical, biochemical and thermochemical biofuels production routes are fast being developed. The viability of first-generation biofuels production is, however, questionable because of the conflict with food supply. In the future, biofuels should ideally create the environmental, economic, and social benefits to the communities and reflect energy efficiency so as to plan a road map for the industry to produce third-generation biofuels.

      Speeding up reactions: biological vs. chemical catalysts. Most chemical reactions go pretty slowly at room temperature. This is good news most of the time, otherwise random parts of the. Carbon recycling occurs when captured carbon in biomass and waste sources can be converted back into advanced materials, commodity and specialty chemicals, and drop-in and advantaged fuels, all enabled by catalysis. Get an overview of NREL's Catalytic Carbon Transformation Platform.

    First generation biofuels, also known as conventional biofuels, are made from sugar, starch or vegetable oil. First generation biofuels are produced through well-understood technologies and processes, like fermentation, distillation and transesterification. These processes have been used for hundreds of years in many uses, such as making alcohol. • Applications of Chemical Engineering in Biochemical and Biomedical Fields Submit your Abstract for the "Global Congress on Advancements in Catalysis and Chemical Engineering Process" scheduled at Madrid, Spain on December , Biofuels and many more Book your slots soon to .

Lignocellulosic Biomass to Liquid Biofuels explores the existing technologies and most recent developments for the production of second generation liquid biofuels, providing an introduction to lignocellulosic biomass and the processes for its conversion into biofuels.

The book demonstrates biorefinery concepts compared with petro refinery, as well as the challenges of second generation. Catalysis (/ k ə ˈ t æ l ə s ɪ s /) is the process of increasing the rate of a chemical reaction by adding a substance known as a catalyst (/ ˈ k æ t əl ɪ s t /).Catalysts are not consumed in the catalyzed reaction but can act repeatedly.

Often only very small amounts of catalyst are required. The global demand for catalysts in was estimated at approximately US$ billion.
