About this book
The efficient conversion of biomass to value-added products has become a major research area in the pursuit of alternatives to petroleum-based feedstocks; hydrogenation and hydrogenolysis are important tools to achieving this aim. This book presents comprehensive coverage of the different catalysts for these reactions, targeting the efficient conversion of bio-based molecules and biopolymers.
The editor, Roberto Rinaldi, is an acknowledged leader in the field of biomass conversion, and has brought together experts from across the globe to examine all aspects of the process, including the solvents, catalysts and feedstocks used in modern biorefineries. Consideration is also given to the fundamentals of running a plant, such as equipment and safety issues.
As the biorefinery industry expands to meet the latest discoveries in biomass conversion, this book provides a thorough grounding in the subject and is an essential reference to researchers at the forefront of discovering new products, companies wishing to scale-up biomass conversion, and postgraduate students of sustainable chemistry and chemical engineering.
