Nanomaterials - Applications in Biofuels and Bioenergy Production Systems looks at how biofuels and bioenergy can be part of the "sustainable solution to the world's energy problems. By addressing bioenergy products compared to their fossil energy counterparts and covering research and development in biofuels when applied to nanomaterials, this book analyzes future trends and how biofuels and bioenergy can contribute to its optimization. Sections cover the fundamentals, synthesis, characterization and applications of nanomaterials in biofuels and bioenergy production systems and include the procedures needed for introducing nanomaterials in these specific sectors and the benefits derived from their applications.
Including the hazards and environmental effects of nanomaterials in bioenergy applications, sustainability issues and a techno-economic analysis of the topic, this book provides researchers in bioscience, energy and environment and bioengineering with an up to date look at the full life cycle assessment of nanomaterials in bioenergy.
- Provides a one-stop solution manual for applications of nanomaterials in bioenergy and biofuels
- Includes biofuel applications with compatible global application case studies
- Addresses the demand for environmental and a techno-economic analysis of nanomaterials applications
