Chapter I: Engineering Aspects of Bioethanol Synthesis
2013 (English)In: Advances in Chemical Engineering: Volume 42: Chemical Engineering for Renewables Conversion / [ed] Murzin D, Academic Press, 2013, 1, 1-73 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This chapter examines the chemistry, technology, and engineering aspects of ethanol production from different biomass sources. The occurrence, structure, and processing of natural sugars, particularly, those obtained from lignocellulose materials, into fermentable units for bioethanol are reviewed. In addition, different industrial technologies for the fractionation of lignocellulosic materials for the production of bioethanol as a fuel and platform chemical are discussed. Finally, the synthetic routes for bioethanol production processes and the catalytic upgrading processes are addressed.
