Written to fill the gap of information on state-of-the-art advances in
integrated biorefineries, this book contains contributions from leading
experts in the field, addressing the synthesis, selection, design,
analysis, and optimization of biorefineries. It discusses the current state
of affairs for biorefineries, as well as strategies, opportunities, various
processing platforms, and how to evaluate the life-cycle impact of
biorefinery products and processes. It also includes systematic process
design tools for new biorefineries, and an effective set of tools for
techno-economic analysis. Case studies, figures, and equations are included
throughout the text to strengthen the reader’s understanding.
