Algal Biofuels: Recent Advances and Future Prospects by Sanjay Kumar Gupta, Anushree Malik, Faizal Bux

By Sanjay Kumar Gupta, Anushree Malik, Faizal Bux

This edited quantity specializes in finished state of the art information regarding the sensible points of cultivation, harvesting, biomass processing and biofuel creation from algae. Chapters conceal issues akin to man made ecological engineering methods in the direction of sustainable construction of biofuel feedstock, and algal biofuel construction procedures utilizing wastewater. Readers also will observe extra in regards to the position of biotechnological engineering in bettering ecophysiology, biomass and lipid yields.
Particular cognizance is given to possibilities of commercialization of algal biofuels that gives a practical review of varied techno-economical elements of pilot scale algal biofuel creation. The authors additionally discover the pre-treatment of biomass, catalytic conversion of algal lipids and hydrothermal liquefaction with the biorefinery process intimately. In a nut shell, this quantity will offer a wealth of data in line with a practical assessment of latest advancements in algal biofuel examine with an emphasis on pilot scale experiences. Researchers learning and dealing within the parts of environmental technology, biotechnology, genetic engineering and biochemistry will locate this paintings instructive and informative.
