Biofuels Engineering Process Technology has many contents: Harvesting Energy from Biochemical Reactions, Microbial Modeling of Biofuel Production, Biofuel Feedstocks, Ethanol Production, Biodiesel, Biological Production of Hydrogen, Microbial Fuel Cells.
The increasing demand for energy worldwide, together with the depletion of crude oil
reserves, environmental threats due to greenhouse gas emissions and new national
and international legislation, is resulting in the imperative for petroleum-derived fuels
to be complemented or substituted by biofuels. Such an alternative, renewable,
biodegradable and nontoxic biofuel is biodiesel.
The book “Biodiesel: Feedstocks and Processing Technologies” is intended to provide
a professional look on the recent achievements and emerging trends in biodiesel
This report documents the principal findings of a RAND project on the R&D system and technological innovation in Chinese industry. The project is evaluating the following issues based on case studies of the Chinese electronics and metallurgy industries:(1) the capability of the Chinese R&D system to meet the equipment and technical needs of end users; (2) the capability of Chinese R&D ......
