Description

Now available in softcover!
This successful book is devoted to biorefineries and biobased industrial technologies, and, as such, is directed towards the technological principles of biorefineries, green processes, plants, concepts, current and forthcoming biobased product lines, as well as the economic aspects. Since the hot topics of green chemistry and green processes are of a multidisciplinary interest, this book will benefit the whole spectrum of the process industry, including chemical engineers, process engineers, apparatus construction engineers, chemical industry, chemists in industry, and biotechnologists.
The editors and authors are all internationally recognized experts from industry and academia, including Dr. Patrick Gruber, the former Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Cargill Dow, winner of the U.S. Presidential Green Chemistry Award and holder of more than 40 patents.

"Altogether, the edition is an interdisciplinary effort to collect knowledge, experience, and potential in the field of biomass treatment and utilization from a rather chemical point of view. It is a useful source of information for interested scientists, technologists, and engineers in chemistry, agricultural and food sciences and technology as well as related fields."
Starch/Stärke

"The book covers a wide range of topics and is, to my knowledge, the best and most comprehensive review of biorefineries. It is the work of 85 experts from universities, R&D institutes, industry and commerce. The authors address the challenges of moving towards a sustainable society in which biological feedstocks, processes and products become the main pillars of the economy, together with the science and technology that makes this transition possible, including economic, infrastructure and policy issues."
Chemistry World

"The topics presented in this volume are challenges of moving toward a sustainable society in which bio-based feedstocks, processes and products are fundamental pillars of the economy. One important feature of the book is that it discusses the necessary topics of economics, infrastructure and policy. The book can be a very valuable scientific support for the specialists interested in conservation of non-renewable resources and development of biorefineries - technologies for bio-conversion."
