Aqueous Pretreatment of Plant Biomass for Biological and by Christian V. Stevens(eds.)

By Christian V. Stevens(eds.)

Plant biomass is attracting expanding consciousness as a sustainable source for large-scale construction of renewable fuels and chemical substances. besides the fact that, to be able to effectively compete with petroleum, it is important that biomass conversion tactics are designed to reduce bills and maximize yields. Advances in pretreatment know-how are serious with a view to strengthen high-yielding, cost-competitive routes to renewable fuels and chemicals.

Aqueous Pretreatment of Plant Biomass for organic and Chemical Conversion to Fuels and Chemicals provides a accomplished review of the at the moment on hand aqueous pretreatment applied sciences for cellulosic biomass, highlighting the basic chemistry and biology of every procedure, key attributes and barriers, and possibilities for destiny advances.

Topics coated include:

• The value of biomass conversion to fuels
• The position of pretreatment in organic and chemical conversion of biomass
• Composition and constitution of biomass, and recalcitrance to conversion
• Fundamentals of biomass pretreatment at low, impartial and excessive pH
• Ionic liquid and organosolv pretreatments to fractionate biomass
• Comparative information for program of prime pretreatments and impression of enzyme formulations
• Physical and chemical good points of pretreated biomass
• Economics of pretreatment for organic processing

Example text

In addition to being widely available, having the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and being uniquely suited to sustainable production of liquid fuels, cellulosic biomass is inexpensive. For example, cellulosic biomass costing $60 per dry ton has about the same cost per unit mass as petroleum at about $7 per barrel. Of even more relevance for fuels production, this biomass price would be equivalent to petroleum at about $20/barrel on the basis of equivalent energy content [27,31]. The resource itself is therefore low in cost, and the challenge is how to inexpensively transform cellulosic biomass into fuels.

Applied Biochemistry and Biotechnology, 57–8, 85–101. 1 Our Place in History The two most profound societal transformations in history have been spawned by radical shifts in humankind’s use of natural resources. The agricultural revolution, which spanned about two millennia beginning around 4000 BC, saw hunter-gatherer societies subsisting on wild plants and animals being largely displaced by those cultivating the land to produce crops and domesticated livestock.
