Bioethanol: science and technology of fuel alcohol

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Biofuels play significant roles in decarbonisation of our future energy needs and act to mitigate deleterious impacts of greenhouse gas emissions. Bioethanol - fermentation-derived fuel alcohol - is the world’s leading transportation biofuel and is currently produced from cereal and sugarcane feedstocks. However, the future lies with more sustainable fermentation substrates, including bio-wastes from agriculture and woody biomass.

This book provides a timely overview of biomass-to-bioethanol conversion technologies and is aimed mainly at advanced students of biological and environmental sciences.
