9781849730433: Transportation Biofuels: Novel Pathways for the Production of Ethanol (Green Chemistry Series)

Current world fossil oil production is struggling to meet demand and may even show a decline after 2010. It is therefore necessary to develop new energy efficient production pathways for transportation biofuels. This book offers an insight into three promising and innovative pathways for the biological production of biodiesel, ethanol and methane. These unconventional methods should provide higher product yields, less stringent feedstock specifications, lower chemical additive demand, reduced waste production and much better energy balances when compared to more traditional methods. The first pathway is the enzymatic production of a new kind of biodiesel where no glycerol waste is produced and a twenty percent higher product yield is obtained. The other two pathways are based on the biological conversion of syngas into ethanol or methane using various kinds of lignocellulosic biomass as the starting point. For each of the three pathways a comparison will be made with competing production methods. The contents reflect extended desktop research and show practical experimental results. Government scientists, academics and biofuel producers with an interest in novel transportation fuels will all find this book to be essential reading.

Book Description:

World fossil oil production is struggling to meet demand so it is necessary to develop energy efficient production pathways for transportation biofuels. This book provides insight into three promising and innovative pathways for the biological production of the main transportation biofuels: biodiesel, ethanol and methane. These offer higher yields, less stringent feedstock specifications, lower chemical additive demand, reduced waste production and better energy balances than conventional methods. The first involves the enzymatic production of a new kind of biodiesel where product yield is increased by 20%. The other two pathways are based on the biological conversion of syngas into ethanol and methane. The book reflects not only extended research but also shows practical experimental results.

About the Author:

Alwin Hoogendoorn is a partner and senior consultant at Ingenia Consultants and Engineers and has been involved in bioenergy for more than ten years. He is an expert in the field of novel biofuel production processes and has been working on enzymatic biodiesel processes, digestion processes, and the biological conversion of syngas into ethanol and other products. He has also recently started work on the biological convesion of syngas into methane. Han van Kasteren is an expert in novel biofuel production processes. Specifically, he has been working on gasification processes for waste biomass, enzymatic biodiesel processes, digestion processes, and the biological conversion of syngas into ethanol and other products. He has also recently started work on the biological convesion of syngas into methane.
