By Ashok Pandey, Duu-Jong Lee, Yusuf Chisti, Carlos R. Soccol

This ebook offers in-depth details on easy and utilized points of biofuels creation from algae. It starts off with an creation to the subject, and follows with the elemental medical points of algal cultivation and its use for biofuels construction, reminiscent of photograph bioreactor engineering for microalgae construction, open tradition structures for biomass creation and the economics of biomass construction. It presents cutting-edge info on artificial biology methods for algae compatible for biofuels creation, by means of algal biomass harvesting, algal oils as fuels, biohydrogen construction from algae, formation/production of co-products, and extra. The e-book additionally covers subject matters corresponding to metabolic engineering and molecular biology for algae for gas creation, lifestyles cycle review and scale-up and commercialization. it really is hugely valuable and enables you to plan new learn and layout new economically doable approaches for the creation of fresh fuels from algae.

  • Covers in a accomplished yet concise approach many of the algae biomass conversion applied sciences at the moment available
  • Lists all of the items made out of algae, i.e. biohydrogen, gas oils, etc., their homes and capability uses
  • Includes the economics of some of the methods and the mandatory steps for scaling them up
