9780470022412: Renewables-Based Technology: Sustainability Assessment (Wiley Series in Renewable Resource)

Sustainability is a key driving force for industries in the chemical, food, packaging, agricultural and pharmaceutical sectors, and quantitative sustainability indicators are being incorporated into company reports. This is driving the uptake of renewable resources and the adoption of renewables.
Renewables' can either be the substituted raw materials that are used in a given industry, (e.g. the use of biomass for fuel); the use and/or modification of a crop for use in a new industry (e.g. plant cellulose), or the reuse of a waste product (e.g. organic waste for energy production).

This is the first book in the Wiley Renewable Resources series that brings together the range of sustainability assessment methods and their uses. Ensuing books in the series will look at individual renewable materials and applications.

From the Back Cover:

The concepts 'renewable recources' and 'sustainability' are receiving much attention by academia, governments and industry. With the current rate of consumption we have fossil oil reserves left for 40 years. Renewable resources are of key importance for the development of a sustainable society and it is vital that governmental and business decision-makers are equiped with adequate assessment tools.

Renewables-Based Technology: Sustainability Assessment brings together and evaluates the main sustainability assessment methods and techniques in one volume.

Structured into three main section, Part One introduces the quantitative assessment of renewables, their potential as feedstock for industry, and an overview of sustainability performance indicators. Part Two introduces the key sustainability methods and techniques that are currently used. Part Three contextualises these methods by providing case studies that are set within the major industries benefiting from renewables.

  • Links the two issues of sustainability assessment and renewable resources.
  • Includes case studies from the major industries that can benefit from using renewable resources, such as agriculture, biotechnology, food packaging, energy-biofuel, bio-polymer, bio-pharmaceutical and organic waste treatment.
  • Written by a global team of authors from academia, governmental departments, research centres and international companies.

This book will be a main source of information for professionals from a range of agricultural, chemistry, chemical and process industries. Also researchers within departments of agriculture, chemistry, chemical engineering, food technology, environmental technology, who are looking at sustainability or clean technology issues.It will also be a valuable reference for upper-level undergraduate and Master students.
