CARBAZYMES project invites you to the Conference "Envisaging Petroleum-Free Biorefineries" the next 26th July at IUCT facilities.
During the Conference CarbaZymes project will be present, as well as our partner from Sustainable Momentum (SUSMOM), Dr Pablo Dominguez, will present his new book “Industrial Biorenewables: A Practical Viewpoint”.
Industrial Biorenewables: A Practical Viewpoint
This book provides a state-of-the-art perspective on industrial biorenewables. A selection of industries dealing with biomass as raw materials present their activities and industrial processes. Emphasis on each chapter includes, and is not limited to: discussion of the motivation of that specific industry to use biorenewables; a short history of their expertise and developments in the field; selected current R&D activities using biomass, the aim of the research, type of biomass used, catalysts, achieved products, economics, etc.; detailed discussions of the type of biomass, indicating 1st or 2nd generation, and options to substitute 1st generation raw materials for more sustainable 2nd generation ones; current processes that have been or are about to be implemented at industrial and commercial scales; expectations such as where potential improvements could be made and where academic research groups could help provide pre-competitive and industrially-sound insights and research; and finally, conclusions, prospects, and recommendations for future directions of research.
