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

By Jens Holm-Nielsen, Ehiaze Augustine Ehimen

Biomass provide Chains for Bioenergy and Biorefining highlights the emergence of strength new release by using biomass and the methods it truly is changing into extra universal. the availability chains that produce the feedstocks, harvest, delivery, shop, and get ready them for combustion or refinement into other kinds of gas are lengthy and intricate, frequently differing from feedstock to feedstock.

Biomass provide Chains for Bioenergy and Biorefining considers each point of those offer chains, together with their layout, administration, socioeconomic, and environmental affects. the 1st a part of the ebook introduces offer chains, biomass feedstocks, and their research, whereas the second one half appears to be like on the harvesting, dealing with, garage, and transportation of biomass. The 3rd half reports the modeling of offer chains and their administration, with the ultimate part discussing, in minute aspect, the provision chains fascinated about the construction and utilization of person feedstocks, corresponding to wooden and sugar starches, oil plants, commercial biomass wastes, and municipal sewage stocks.

  • Focuses at the advanced provide chains of a number of the strength feedstocks for biomass strength generation
  • Studies quite a lot of biomass feedstocks, together with woody strength vegetation, sugar and starch plants, lignocellulosic vegetation, oil vegetation, grass vegetation, algae, and biomass waste
  • Reviews the modeling and optimization, criteria, qc and traceability, socioeconomic, and environmental affects of offer chains

It is expressed in grams of biomass dry matter per MJ of absorbed solar energy (PARa). , 1986). With the exception of soybean (whose oil is used for biodiesel production), there are few examples of legume crops used for biorefining purposes. Legumes include annual crops such as soybean or pea, and perennial forage crops, which can be harvested several times a year (alfalfa) or grazed (clover). They have a high protein content, which can be of interest to bioproduct pathways as a substitute for animal proteins.
