"This book highlights in a highly topical, competent and clear-cut presentation the significance of producing energy carriers from biobased feedstocks and their transformation processes.5/5(1). The volume is divided into sections covering general principles of biorefining, production of bioethanol from feedstocks, production of biodiesel from vegetable oils, production of biofuels from algae, biohydrogen and biobutanol and other green fuels and individual chapters address specific aspects of the production process, raw materials, and assessments of the efficiency and practicality of each technology."--SciTech Book.

This chapter presents the principles of biorefining. The biorefinery concept embraces a wide range of technologies able to separate biomass resources (wood, grasses, corn, etc.) into their building blocks, (carbohydrates, proteins, fats, etc.) which can be converted to value-added products, biofuels.
