Top Value Added Chemicals from Biomass Volume I—Results of Screening for Potential Candidates from Sugars and Synthesis Gas Produced by the Staff at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Office of Biomass Program (EERE) For the Office of the Biomass Program T. Werpy and G. Petersen, Editors. Additional research interests include: Lignocellulosic biomass compositional analysis. Biomass deconstruction via pretreatment and enzymatic hydrolysis. Submerged enzyme production, particularly on biomass-derived carbon sources. Mixed sugar fermentation to fuels and chemicals, including hydrolysate toxicity issues.

  The use of biomass fuels is also well established in agro-processing and wood processing industries. In most developing countries, the share of traditional fuels in the total national energy use has been falling in recent years (see Table 1). This is mainly due to rapid increase in commercial energy consumption in these countries. require further research. This study considered the specific fuel and chemical applications: Fischer-Tropsch fuels, methanol, hydrogen, and fuel gas. Highly desirable syngas characteristics for these were identified, which were then used to evaluate technologies for a given end-use application.

A renewable resource is a natural resource which will replenish to replace the portion depleted by usage and consumption, either through natural reproduction or other recurring processes in a finite amount of time in a human time scale. Renewable resources are a part of Earth's natural environment and the largest components of its ecosphere.A positive life cycle assessment is a key indicator. The Biomass R&D Board The Biomass Research and Development (R&D) Board (The Board) was created through the enactment of the Bio-mass Research and Development Act of “to coordinate programs within and among departments and agencies of the federal government for the purpose of promoting the use of biobased industrial products by (1) maximizing.

; Octo [United States. Get this from a library. National Sustainable Fuels and Chemicals Act of report (to accompany S. [United States. Congress. Senate. Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry.]. Biomass is the most abundant renewable resource on Earth. It is estimated that the global biomass production is approximately billion tons per year [].Through biological and/or thermochemical technologies, the biomass resources can be transformed into sustainable chemicals, fuels, and materials [, ].The International Energy Agency suggests that 10% of the world's energy can be.

About this book Sets the stage for the development of sustainable, environmentally friendly fuels, chemicals, and materials Taking millions of years to form, fossil fuels are nonrenewable resources; it is estimated that they will be depleted by the end of this century.

Biomass is an important contributor to the world economy. Agriculture and forest products industries provide food, feed, fiber, and a wide range of necessary products like shelter, packaging, clothing, and communications.

However, biomass is also a source of a large variety of chemicals and materials, and of electricity and fuels. Biomass for Renewable Energy, Fuels, and Chemicals serves as a comprehensive introduction to the subject for the student and educator, and is useful for researchers who are interested in the technical details of biomass energy production.

The coverage and discussion are multidisciplinary, reflecting the many scientific and engineering. Scope. Sustainable Energy & Fuels publishes high quality scientific research that will drive the development of sustainable energy technologies, with a particular emphasis on innovative concepts and approaches.

The journal is an essential resource for energy researchers and cuts across major disciplines – chemistry, physics, biology, materials science and engineering – covering evolving. Chemists and engineers must develop economically viable and sustainable resource solutions with responsible materials management, human health and environmental concerns in mind.

The transformation of wastes (biomass, food, industrial, etc.) into fuels and other high-value chemicals is becoming a critical field of green chemistry.

Once GVL has been processed into butene gas, it can be processed into heavier chemical compounds, and so the team’s research demonstrates that it is possible to use biomass to produce industrially important chemicals like benzene, toluene and xylene – a significant step towards affordable, sustainable chemical production.

In a Senate Hearing on The National Sustainable Fuels and Chemicals Actthe NRDC gave evidence [17] that combustion products of ethanol include formaldehyde and acetaldehyde, both known carcinogens ; and that increased use of ethanol may also increase atmospheric levels of peroxyacetylnitrate (PAN).

Summary. Domestic production of renewable fuels, including algal biofuels, has the potential to meet the dual goals of improving energy security and decreasing greenhousegas (GHG) emissions from the transportation sector in the United ls produced from microalgae and cyanobacteria 1 offer potential advantages over terrestrial plant-based biofuels, such as high biomass productivity.
