Biomass Supply Chains for Bioenergy and Biorefining by Jens Holm-Nielsen, Ehiaze Augustine Ehimen

By Jens Holm-Nielsen, Ehiaze Augustine Ehimen

Biomass offer Chains for Bioenergy and Biorefining highlights the emergence of strength iteration by utilizing biomass and the methods it truly is turning into extra well-known. the provision chains that produce the feedstocks, harvest, shipping, shop, and get ready them for combustion or refinement into different kinds of gas are lengthy and intricate, usually differing from feedstock to feedstock.

Biomass offer Chains for Bioenergy and Biorefining

considers each element of those offer chains, together with their layout, administration, socioeconomic, and environmental affects. the 1st a part of the publication introduces provide chains, biomass feedstocks, and their research, whereas the second one half seems to be on the harvesting, dealing with, garage, and transportation of biomass. The 3rd half reviews the modeling of provide chains and their administration, with the ultimate part discussing, in minute element, the provision chains taken with the creation and utilization of person feedstocks, comparable to wooden and sugar starches, oil vegetation, commercial biomass wastes, and municipal sewage stocks.

  • Focuses at the complicated provide chains of some of the power feedstocks for biomass strength generation
  • Studies a variety of biomass feedstocks, together with woody strength vegetation, sugar and starch vegetation, lignocellulosic vegetation, oil plants, grass vegetation, algae, and biomass waste
  • Reviews the modeling and optimization, criteria, quality controls and traceability, socioeconomic, and environmental affects of offer chains
