Sustainable Bioenergy and Bioproducts considers the recent technological innovations and emerging concepts in bio-based civil infrastructure sustainability based on advances made in industrial biotechnology. Biomass derived energy productions are often advocated as a possible solution for our lack of a sustainable transportation fuel and the use of biofuel may partially offset energy requirements which fossil fuels currently fulfill. This complete life cycle analysis of the biofuel production process includes a comparison of possible economical and environmentally sound uses for the residue. Sustainable Bioenergy and Bioproducts covers a broad and detailed range of topics including:· production capacity of hydrocarbons in the plant kingdom, algae, and microbes; · biomass pretreatment for biofuel production;· microbial fuel cells; · sustainable use of biofuel co-products;· bioeconomy and transportation infrastructure impacts and · assessment of environmental risks and the life cycle of biofuels. Researchers, practitioners, undergraduate and graduate students engaged in the study of bio-renewables will find Sustainable Bioenergy and Bioproducts to be a useful and comprehensive research tool.
