In order to successfully compete as a sustainable energy source,the value of biomass must be maximized through the production ofvaluable co-products in the biorefinery. Specialty chemicalsand other biobased products can be extracted from biomass prior toor after the conversion process, thus increasing the overallprofitability and sustainability of the biorefinery.
Biorefinery Co-Products highlights various co-productsthat are present in biomass prior to and after processing,describes strategies for their extraction, and presents examplesof bioenergy feedstocks that contain high value products.
Topics covered include:
* Bioactive compounds from woody biomass
* Phytochemicals from sugar cane, citrus waste and algae
* Valuable products from corn and other oil seed crops
* Proteins from forages
* Enhancing the value of existing biomass processing streams
Aimed at academic researchers, professionals and specialists inthe bioenergy industry, Biorefinery Co-Products is anessential text for all scientists and engineers working on theefficient separation, purification and manufacture of value-addedbiorefinery co-products.
