Immense potential for sustainable development lies in the production of fuels, chemicals, and materials from bioresources. This timely book provides comprehensive coverage of the engineering systems that convert agricultural crops and residues into bioenergy and biobased products. The book covers not only pertinent technologies but offers a primer on necessary foundation subjects: organic chemistry, thermodynamics, plant science, crop production, environmental science, and process economics.
promises to become the intellectual and technical gateway to a sustainable, renewable resource-based industrial society. --Wolfgang G. Glasser, Professor, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg
