Biofuels Engineering Process Technology

Because of rising fuel prices worldwide demand for biofuels made from plant and animal feedstock is increasing. This 448 pages book is a good source on illustrations, Biofuels Engineering Process Technology fully explains the concepts, systems, and technology now being used to produce biofuels on both an industrial and small scale.

Table of contents

Part I. Introduction
Part II. Fuels from fermentations
Section 1: Ethanol
Section 2. Hydrogen
Section 3. Microbial oils
Section 4. Methane
Part III. Fuel from chemical conversion of plant oil
Section 5. Biodiesel
Part IV. Bioelectricity
Part V. Technical Resources
