Biofuels from Agricultural Wastes and Byproducts
June 2016, Wiley-Blackwell
Biofuels from Agricultural Wastes and Byproducts is
the first book to focus solely on the production of biofuels
primarily from agricultural waste and by-products. The book is
divided roughly into two sections. The first section looks at
liquid biofuel production from agricultural byproducts,
densification of agricultural residues, and the delivery from farm
to processing plant of waste and byproducts for use in biofuel
production. The second section focuses on anaerobic digestion of
food and animal wastes, microbial diversity, molecular and
biochemical aspects of methanogensis.
Together these sections solidify Biofuels from Agricultural Wastes and Byproducts as a definitive source of information on the use of agricultural waste and by-products in biofuel production.
