9780124079090: Bioenergy: Biomass to Biofuels

Bioenergy: Biomass to Biofuels examines all current and emerging feedstocks and the advanced processes and technologies enabling the development of their end products, ranging from solid (wood energy, grass energy, and other biomass) to liquid (biodiesel from oil seed crops, algae biofuel, waste-oil, ethanol etc.) and gaseous/electric (biogas, syngas, bioelectricity). Life cycle analysis, Energy Return on Energy Invested (EROI), integrated sustainability assessments, environmental, economic, and social issues are all given thorough consideration. Guest authors from industry and academia contribute their expertise to ensure you obtain the most nuanced, comprehensive information. Quizzes, case studies and project ideas will help you to master the technological details included, and connect theory to real-world implementation.

Whether you are a professional entering the field, a student exploring the pathways from biomass to biofuels, or an instructor developing a course on biofuels, this book will educate you about the trade-offs between various feedstocks, provide helpful evaluation criteria for biofuel project proposals, and provide a one-stop information resource on the hottest new advances in the field, all presented in clear language, and within a practical context that will give you a bird's eye view, from the field to the refinery and beyond.

  • The only introductory book to cover solid, liquid and gaseous bioenergy, emphasizing cutting-edge topics such as microbial fuels and biogas
  • Integrated coverage from feedstocks to conversion processes to integrated sustainability assessments and economic analysis
  • Features case studies for each topic, drawn from real implementation projects

Product Description:

Depleting fossil fuel reserves and adverse effects of fluctuating oil prices have renewed interest in alternative and sustainable sources of energy. Bioenergy: Biomass to Biofuels takes on this topic and examines current and emerging feedstocks and advanced processes and technologies enabling the development of all possible alternative energy sources: solid (wood energy, grass energy, and other biomass), liquid (biodiesel, algae biofuel, ethanol), and gaseous/electric (biogas, syngas, bioelectricity). Divided into seven parts, Bioenergy gives thorough consideration to topics such as feedstocks, biomass production and utilization, life cycle analysis, Energy Return on Invested (EROI), integrated sustainability assessments, conversions technologies, biofuels economics and policy. In addition, contributions from leading industry professionals and academics, augmented by related service-learning case studies and quizzes, provide readers with a comprehensive resource that connect theory to real-world implementation.

  • Provides a comprehensive overview and in-depth technical information of all possible bioenergy resources (solid, liquid, and gaseous), including cutting-edge topics such as advanced fuels and biogas 
  • Integrates current state of art coverage from feedstocks to cost-effective conversion processes to biofuels economic analysis and environmental policy
  • Features case studies and quizzes for each section derived from the implementation of actual hands-on biofuel projects as part of service learning.
     

About the Author:

Dr. Anju Dahiya is affiliated with the University of Vermont as a Biofuels Instructor at the Plant and Soil Science Department and Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources. For developing and teaching the "Biomass to Biofuels course”, she brought together the experts from biofuels business, farms and University faculty members and she designed this course to provide hands on experience in various biofuels including liquid biofuels (biodiesel including oil seeds; ethanol, algae oil), solid biomass (woody biomass and grass energy), and biogas. The course developed with support from US Department of Energy is aimed at providing the participants including students, farmers, entrepreneurs, and others with hands-on technical exposure to various Biofuels related science & technology topics, background & literature information besides addressing the environmental, economic, policy, social and other Biofuel related issues via various means of instruction to include on campus classes, field work involving tours to Farms,/Biofuel facilities; talks by experts on particular Biofuel type; Biofuel equipment demonstrations by professionals; online supplementary classes/information including video clips. Etc. Details at Course Website: http://learn.uvm.edu/?Page=biomass_to_biofuels.html
Recently, the 'Advanced Biofuels USA' ran a story about her endeavor:

Dr. Dahiya is also President & Research Scientist of General Systems Research LLC, a R&D business dedicated to algae biofuel and related software development. Currently she leads several biofuel research projects focused on algae-fuel funded through Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, NASA (EPSCoR), and NSF (EPSCoR) related to development of a robust system of algae-oil production that could be integrated with dairy farm & industrial wastewater treatment. As a biofuel Scientist, she has been applying systems approach to develop a robust system of algal-oil production. Her Algae-Biofuel works have been captured by VPT (PBS) TV channel (Emerging Science); Burlington Free Press; and long standing TV program - Across the Fence (forthcoming). She has been presenting her work as an invited speaker in conferences, State programs, workshops, and published papers. In 2010 she successfully co-organized the "Algae for Energy in Northeast conference” at University of Vermont to stimulate the research at regional level, invited speakers from DoE, National & Regional Universities, Government & Private sectors, that attracted a large number of participants from Academic, Government and Private sectors including energy related farms:
