A comprehensive overview of current developments and applications in biofuels production 

Process Systems Engineering for Biofuels Development brings together the latest and most cutting-edge research on the production of biofuels. As the first book specifically devoted to process systems engineering for the production of biofuels, Process Systems Engineering for Biofuels Development covers theoretical, computational and experimental issues in biofuels process engineering. 

Written for researchers and postgraduate students working on biomass conversion and sustainable process design, as well as industrial practitioners and engineers involved in process design, modeling and optimization, this book is an indispensable guide to the newest developments in areas including: 

  • Enzyme-catalyzed biodiesel production 
  • Process analysis of biodiesel production (including kinetic modeling, simulation and optimization) 
  • The use of ultrasonification in biodiesel production 
  • Thermochemical processes for biomass transformation to biofuels 
  • Production of alternative biofuels 

In addition to the comprehensive overview of the subject of biofuels found in the Introduction of the book, the authors of various chapters have provided extensive discussions of the production and separation of biofuels via novel applications and techniques.
