Contents Notes
Historical development of bioethanol as a fuel -- Chemistry, biochemistry and microbiology of lignocellulosic biomass -- Biotechnology of bioethanol production from lignocellulosic feedstocks -- Biochemical engineering and bioprocess management for fuel ethanol -- The economics of bioethanol -- Diversifying the biofuels portfolio -- Radical options for the development of biofuels -- Biofuels as products of integrated bioprocesses. Exploring the scientific underpinnings for the commercialisation of lignocellulosic 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.
