Biodiesel as an Alternative Fuel

Biodiesel as an Alternative Fuel provides a fundamental understanding of the state-of-the-art processes involved in the production of biodiesel. It offers a holistic analysis of mass scale biodiesel production in terms of techno-economic viability and sustainability challenges of the 21st century. This book encompasses the entire biodiesel value chain, from feedstock production and conversion processes, to post-production refining and fuel quality assessment. Besides conventional approaches, recent technologies holding promising opportunities are discussed in depth. The authors analyze and address major industry and environmental concerns in their discussion of life cycle assessment and techno-economic assessment. A comparison of biodiesel and renewable diesel produced through hydro-processing of triglycerides is presented a separate chapter, as well as the significant hurdles and opportunities in the industrial scale production and commercialization of biodiesel. By exploring the fundamental concepts, latest developments and sustainability aspects, Biodiesel as an Alternative Fuel offers a complete understanding of the feasibility and sustainability of biodiesel. Researchers and PhD students coming into the field will be able to use this reference to acquire a holistic perspective of the subject. More experienced researcher and industry practitioners will benefit from the book's techno-economic approach to make better-informed decisions when developing and deploying biodiesel-based technologies. Presents the state-of-the-art production strategies to transform the state of the biodiesel industry Explores the significant challenges and opportunities in improving the scale of production, acceptability, and marketability of biodiesel Compares biodiesel and renewable diesel on a range of parameters, including techno-economic viability and sustainability dimensions in the medium to long term

This book aims to provide the reader with useful information in the realm of biofuels such as biogas, biodiesel and bioethanol. This book is hoped to contribute to the consolidation of knowledge in the different fields. It briefly describes the use of biofuels just to use them as a source of energy. The expected energy produced can be used to replace energy obtained from nonrenewable fossil fuels such as petroleum. The problems caused from burning of fossil fuels such as

In the United States, we have come to depend on plentiful and inexpensive energy to support our economy and lifestyles. In recent years, many questions have been raised regarding the sustainability of our current pattern of high consumption of nonrenewable energy and its environmental consequences. Further, because the United States imports about 55 percent of the nation's consumption of crude oil, there are additional concerns about the security of supply. Hence, efforts are being made to find alternatives to our current

Biofuel is a renewable energy source produced from natural materials. The benefits of biofuels over traditional petroleum fuels include greater energy security, reduced environmental impact, foreign exchange savings, and socioeconomic issues related to the rural sector. The most common biofuels are produced from classic food crops that require high-quality agricultural land for growth. However, bioethanol can be produced from plentiful, domestic, cellulosic biomass resources such as herbaceous and woody plants, agricultural and forestry residues, and a large portion of municipal

Biofuel is a generic term to designate fuels that are produced from biological raw materials. Although the term biofuel applies to any fuel, it commonly refers to liquid biofuels, especially when it is used as transport fuel. Biofuels for transport is an old modern subject. In fact, biofuel was proposed as a feed for internal combustion engines from the beginning of automotive industry. During the 20th century there were several unsuccessful attempts to develop the use of biofuels as automotive
