About this book

Exploring the scientific underpinnings for the commercialization of lingo-cellulosic ethanol, this book begins with the historical context, examining the political and economic pressures that fostered the first large-scale production and use of bioethanol. The author provides an up-to-date account of the biotechnology and biochemical engineering and evaluates the actual and possible industrial processes for large-scale commercial production of ethanol form monocultures and agricultural waste products.
