Traditional agriculture and emerging biofuels technology produce anumber of wastes and by-products, ranging from corn fiber andglycerin to animal manure, that have the potential to serve as thebasis for additional sources of bioenergy that includes both liquidbiofuels and biogas.
Biofuels from Agricultural Wastes and Byproducts isthe first book to focus solely on the production of biofuelsprimarily from agricultural waste and by-products. The book isdivided roughly into two sections. The first section looks atliquid biofuel production from agricultural byproducts,densification of agricultural residues, and the delivery from farmto processing plant of waste and byproducts for use in biofuelproduction. The second section focuses on anaerobic digestion offood and animal wastes, microbial diversity, molecular andbiochemical aspects of methanogensis.
Together these sections solidify Biofuels fromAgricultural Wastes and Byproducts as a definitive source ofinformation on the use of agricultural waste and by-products inbiofuel production.
