Biomass and Biowaste
New Chemical Products from Old
Ed. by Balu, Alina M. / García Nuñez, Araceli
Discusses the chemistry and composition of biomass from alternative sources
Presents products derived from biowaste that replace unsustainable products
Covers new, green methods of process intensification, catalysis, and other technologies
Aims and Scope
Valorization of biomass focuses on the transformation of biomass molecules into substitutes for petroleum-based chemicals that can be reused. Valorizing Biomass and Biowaste discusses the chemistry and composition of alternative biomass sources. Later chapters will introduce new markets and discuss efficient, green methods of process intensification and catalysis in order to increase conversion of biomass/biowastes.
