Description : This book aims to understand the processes and technologies involved in the fields of bioenergy and biofuels. It contains important chapters that discuss the most vital concepts and emerging trends in this area of study. Biofuels and bioenergy became the focal point for researchers while they were searching for alternative sources of energy other than the existing non-renewable sources. As the already existing resources are limited, biofuels can be termed as one of the substitutes. They are available in forms such as biodiesel and bioethanol. Considerable amount of research is going on this area to produce cleaner fuels with high efficiency for example ethanol biofuels, algae biofuels, jatropha tree oil, etc. The various sub-fields of bioenergy along with technological progress that have future implications are glanced at in this book. Scientists, engineers, environmentalists, climatologists, researchers and students actively engaged in this field will find this book full of crucial and unexplored concepts.
