Biotransformation of Agricultural Waste and By-Products

The Food, Feed, Fibre, Fuel (4F) Economy

 

Elsevier, 2016.

ISBNs 9780128036228

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Biotransformation of Agricultural Waste and By-Products in the 4F Economy: The Food, Feed, Fiber, Fuel (4F) Economy presents an evaluation of plant species better exploitable for a particular transformation. As crops are already covering large parts of cultivable soils, is it is not conceivable to try to extend the cultures beyond the limit of available soils, but a further increase in productivity is not easy to obtain.

The book discusses advances in technology and plants design which support the exploitation and valorization of vegetable and fruit by-products through fermentation (feed-batch liquid fermentation, solid-state fermentation) in bio-based bio-chemicals/biofuels production. Pathways in the biosynthesis of fibers, sugars, and metabolites are provided with a focus on the lifecycle of bacteria, yeasts, and even plant species. The text analyzes cellular structures and the organization of cell walls in order to show which polysaccharides offer more favorable fermentative processes and which are detrimental.

  • Provides an overview of all plant based biosources
  • Includes examples of biochemical/biofuel production from plant waste
  • Discusses the production of enzymes used in the plant fermentation processes
  • Explores the new fermentation technologies and production of chemicals and fuels from various plants

Black Liquor Gasification

 

Elsevier, 2014.

ISBNs 9780081000090

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Black Liquor Gasification (BLG) is a first of its kind to guide chemical engineers, students, operators of paper plants, technocrats, and entrepreneurs on practical guidelines and a holistic techno-enviro-economic perspective applicable to their future or existing projects based on the treatment of black liquor for energy production. BLG describes the gasification process as a more efficient alternative to current processes for the conversion of black liquor biomass into energy. BLG operates largely in sync with other methods to improve pulp-making efficiency. This book explains how BLG offers a way to generate electricity and to reclaim pulping chemicals from black liquor, and why BLG would replace the Tomlinson recovery boiler for the recovery of spent chemicals and energy.

  • Describes the utilization of black liquor as a source of energy
  • Provides a detailed account of black liquor gasification processes for the production of energy and chemicals from black liquor
  • Provides guidelines to chemical engineers for the treatment of black liquor

Boron Separation Processes

 

Elsevier, 2015.

ISBNs 9780444634542

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

The impending crisis posed by water stress and poor sanitation represents one of greatest human challenges for the 21st century, and membrane technology has emerged as a serious contender to confront the crisis. Yet, whilst there are countless texts on wastewater treatment and on membrane technologies, none address the boron problem and separation processes for boron elimination. Boron Separation Processes fills this gap and provides a unique and single source that highlights the growing and competitive importance of these processes. For the first time, the reader is able to see in one reference work the state-of-the-art research in this rapidly growing field. The book focuses on four main areas:

  • Effect of boron on humans and plants
  • Separation of boron by ion exchange and adsorption processes
  • Separation of boron by membrane processes
  • Simulation and optimization studies for boron separation
  • Provides in one source a state-of-the-art overview of this compelling area
  • Reviews the environmental impact of boron before introducing emerging boron separation processes
  • Includes simulation and optimization studies for boron separation processes
  • Describes boron separation processes applicable to specific sources, such as seawater, geothermal water and wastewater

Boundary Flux Handbook, The

A Comprehensive Database of Critical and Threshold Flux Values for Membrane Practitioners

 

Elsevier, 2015.

ISBNs 9780128015896

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

The Boundary Flux Handbook summarizes over 100 chemical compounds (single compounds, in mixed solution) and different feed streams from industry (complex streams exiting the agricultural, biological, pharmaceutical, food, dye, textile, and other industries) and the respective critical and threshold fluxes (or boundary flux), together with data on rejection and permeabilities. It gives the reader valuable data to quickly estimate membrane performances in respect to productivity, selectivity, and longevity, and aids in estimating capital and operating costs of membrane processes during the plant design operations.

The book is valuable for scientific researchers and chemical engineers working with membrane technology as a reference for lab work, membrane process design, and control. For each specific feedstock, only the best performing membranes are listed. At least one commercial membrane module and a maximum of four different choices are reported, in order to assure easy integration of the proposed membranes into the systems by contacting the relevant commercial partner, and to define the best choice of the pretreatment steps, permitting quick membrane process optimization or revamping operations.

  • This text summarizes over 100 chemical compounds, different feed streams from industry, and the respective critical and threshold fluxes.   
  • It gives the reader valuable data to quickly estimate membrane performances in respect to productivity, selectivity and longevity.
  • For each studied feedstock, only the best performing membrane(s) are listed, including one commercial and a maximum of four different choices, to assure the possibility to easily integrate the proposed membranes into the systems by contacting the relevant commercial partner.

Carbon Dioxide Utilisation

Closing the Carbon Cycle

 

Elsevier, 2015.

ISBNs 9780444627469

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Carbon Dioxide Utilisation: Closing the Carbon Cycle explores areas of application such as conversion to fuels, mineralization, conversion to polymers, and artificial photosynthesis as well as assesses the potential industrial suitability of the various processes. After an introduction to the thermodynamics, basic reactions, and physical chemistry of carbon dioxide, the book proceeds to examine current commercial and industrial processes, and the potential for carbon dioxide as a green and sustainable resource.

While carbon dioxide is generally portrayed as a "bad" gas, a waste product, and a major contributor to global warming, a new branch of science is developing to convert this "bad" gas into useful products. This book explores the science behind converting CO2 into fuels for our cars and planes, and for use in plastics and foams for our homes and cars, pharmaceuticals, building materials, and many more useful products.

Carbon dioxide utilization is a rapidly expanding area of research that holds a potential key to sustainable, petrochemical-free chemical production and energy integration.

  • Accessible and balanced between chemistry, engineering, and industrial applications
  • Informed by blue-sky thinking and realistic possibilities for future technology and applications
  • Encompasses supply chain sustainability and economics, processes, and energy integration
