Description

While fossil fuels are the main sources for producing energy, they have a variety of destructive environmental effects and are quickly being depleted. Therefore, governments need to find clean and renewable alternative energy sources that can produce adequate amounts of energy. Biomass fuels have recently emerged as an alternative energy source because they provide the needed attributes and are compatible with many industries.

Bioenergy and the Advanced Application of Bio-Products and Microfluidic Devices is a pivotal reference source that provides vital research on biofuels including in-depth examinations of their composition, carbon contents, heat production capacities, and other important factors needed to understand best practices and processes for upgrading them directly and indirectly to various fuels. Additionally, it introduces applications of microfluidic devices and lab-on-chips in biomass processes. While highlighting topics such as bio-oil reforming, plasma treatment, and biofuel production, this book is ideally designed for engineers, researchers, students, professionals, and academicians.
