Advances in Biorefineries: Biomass and Waste Supply Chain Exploitation (Woodhead Publishing Series in Energy)by Keith Waldron
Synopses & Reviews
This book provides a comprehensive and systematic reference on the advanced biomass recovery and conversion processes used in biorefineries. Chapters in the first half review developments in biorefining processes and different types of biorefinery platform while the second half discusses the wide range of added value products from biorefineries, from biofuel to biolubricants and bioadhesives.
About the Author
Professor Keith Waldron is Senior Scientist at the Institute of Food Research, UK where he is head of the “Sustainability of the Food Chain Exploitation Platform”. His current research interests include the development of biofuels and platform chemicals from agri-food chain waste biomass. He is also the Editor of "Handbook of waste management and co-product recovery in food processing, Volumes 1 and 2" (Woodhead, 2007 and 2009) and "Bioalcohol production: Biochemical conversion of lignocellulosic biomass" (Woodhead, 2010).
