Publisher Description

Nanomaterials in Biomass Conversion: Advances and Applications for Bioenergy, Biofuels and Bio-based Products critically reviews the basic principles through to the latest advances in the emerging field of nanotechnology for the production of biofuels and bioenergy.

Divided into 3 parts, the first five chapters explain the fundamentals of nanomaterials, their properties, characterization, and basic processes for synthesis. Part 2, which constitutes the majority of the book, reviews the various methods and technologies for the conversion of biomass to bioenergy, biofuels, and value-added products using nanomaterials. This includes homogeneous and heterogeneous nano-catalytic systems, nano-photocatalytic conversion, nanomaterial-assisted anaerobic digestion, nanoparticles-immobilized enzymes conversion, the production of biogas, volatile fatty acids, and value-added products, and in carbon capture and conversion to sustainable energy products, as well as the potential of nano-biochar, nano-cellulose, and other nanomaterials in microbial fuel cells, bioelectrochemical systems, and batteries. Finally, Part 3 addresses the techno-economics and financial viability in the context of the circular economy, risk related to toxicology, stability, and environmental impacts, and considers the various challenges and future opportunities of biomass conversion through nanomaterials.

Nanomaterials in Biomass Conversion is an invaluable resource for researchers and engineers involved in the production of bioenergy, biofuel, and bioproducts, and will also be of benefit to those interested in environmental remediation, pollution management, and cleaner energy production.
Critically examines the role of nanomaterials in the management of waste biomass as applied to bioenergy and biofuelsExplains various nanotechnological methods for the conversion of waste biomass into value-added productsDiscusses the basic principles, operational aspects, ongoing developments, and future perspectives related to the applications of nanotechnologies and nanomaterials in biomass conversionProvides solutions to the key challenges of nanotechnologies and nanomaterials in the conversion of biomass, along with future challenges and risks
