This book is the first in this area, serving as a resource and guidance manual for understanding the principles, mechanisms, design, and applications of microwaves in biofuel process chemistry. Green chemistry of microwave-mediated biofuel reactions and thermodynamic potentials for the process biochemistry are the focus of this book.
Microwaves and green chemistry of biofuels. Microwave heating and interaction with materials. Microwave reactor design and configurations. Microwave mediated biodiesel production. Microwave pretreatment of feedstock for bioethanol production. Microwave enhanced biogas production. Microwave mediated thermochemical conversion of biomass. Heat and mass transfer and reaction kinetics under microwaves. Microwaves and ionic liquids in biofuel production. Microwave hybridization for advanced biorefinery.
