Paperback / softback

  • Information


Sustainable Biodiesel: Real-World Designs, Economics, and Applications offers a unique, integrated approach that combines cutting-edge research results and the day-to-day aspects of biodiesel production at the industrial level.

It brings together experienced academics and recognized industry experts to explore the most practical elements of research and discuss the limitations and future needs of the industry.

The book critically reviews strategies for implementing biodiesel-based biorefineries, feedstock supply chains, reactor technologies, processes for biodiesel production, and biodiesel combustion, including advanced fuel formulations containing biodiesel.

The authors examine biodiesel plants from the point of view of design, operation, quality control, and sustainability, including life cycle assessment (LCA) and life cycle costing (LCC).

Policy and regulatory constraints in biodiesel production and commercialization as well as future trends and needs of the industry are also covered. This book, as a volume of the "Biomass and Biofuels" series, provides researchers and practitioners in the field of biomass and biofuels with a well-rounded understanding of how the technologies developed in the lab can be deployed at commercial scale in a sustainable and cost-efficient way.

This allows biofuels researchers to better develop technology that is fit for upscaling in an industrial setting and complies with sustainability goals.

Practicing engineers, on the other hand, find in this volume up-to-date information on available technology, the latest advances, and future trends that will inform their decision-making when planning, implementing, and troubleshooting biodiesel-based bioenergy systems.
