by Nicholas Korres, Bioenergy Production By Anaerobic Digestion Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Bioenergy Production By Anaerobic Digestion books, Interest in anaerobic digestion (AD), the process of energy production through the production of biogas, has increased rapidly in recent years. Agricultural and other organic waste are important substrates that can be treated by AD. This book is one of the first to provide a broad introduction to anaerobic digestion and its potential to turn agricultural crops or crop residues, animal and other organic waste, into biomethane. The substrates used can include any non-woody materials, including grass and maize silage, seaweeds, municipal and industrial wastes. These are all systematically reviewed in terms of their suitability from a biological, technical and economic perspective. In the past the technical competence and high capital investment required for industrial-scale anaerobic digesters has limited their uptake, but the authors show that recent advances have made smaller-scale systems more viable through a greater understanding of optimising bacterial metabolism and productivity. Broader issues such as life cycle assessment and energy policies to promote AD are also discussed.
by Ganti S Murthy, Biomass Biofuels Biochemicals Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Biomass Biofuels Biochemicals books, Systems analysis for sustainability is an emerging discipline where any technologies/processes or policies are evaluated comprehensively for sustainability. Trifold sustainability metrics such as technical feasibility, economic viability and environmental impacts are commonly used to assess sustainability. In addition to these metrics, it is important to consider resource sustainability, policies and social aspects for evaluating the sustainability of any proposed alternative. This approach results in identifying possible pitfalls early in the process so that truly sustainable alternative technologies, products and policies can be formulated. Green-Economy: Systems Analysis for Sustainability provides a theoretical background to perform such analyses. It demonstrates the application of these principles in practice with case studies carefully chosen from around the world to emerging technologies in the green economy. The first part of this book introduces methods and tools to perform technical feasibility analysis, economic viability analysis, environmental risk assessment, resource sustainability assessment, life cycle assessment (LCA), policy and social aspects of technologies and introduces resilience thinking. The second part of the book focuses on case studies with an emphasis on biofuels and bioproducts and food-energy-water nexus from across the globe.

by Hans Blaschek, Biofuels From Agricultural Wastes And Byproducts Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Biofuels From Agricultural Wastes And Byproducts books, Traditional agriculture and emerging biofuels technology produce a number of wastes and by-products, ranging from corn fiber and glycerin to animal manure, that have the potential to serve as the basis for additional sources of bioenergy that includes both liquid biofuels and biogas. Biofuels from Agricultural Wastes and Byproducts is the first book to focus solely on the production of biofuels primarily from agricultural waste and by-products. The book is divided roughly into two sections. The first section looks at liquid biofuel production from agricultural byproducts, densification of agricultural residues, and the delivery from farm to processing plant of waste and byproducts for use in biofuel production. The second section focuses on anaerobic digestion of food and animal wastes, microbial diversity, molecular and biochemical aspects of methanogensis. Together these sections solidify Biofuels from Agricultural Wastes and Byproducts as a definitive source of information on the use of agricultural waste and by-products in biofuel production.
