"Altogether, the edition is an interdisciplinary effort to collect knowledge, experience, and potential in the field of biomass treatment and utilization from a rather chemical point of view. It is a useful source of information for interested scientists, technologists, and engineers in chemistry, agricultural and food sciences and technology as well as related fields."
"The book covers a wide range of topics and is, to my knowledge, the best and most comprehensive review of biorefineries. It is the work of 85 experts from universities, R&D institutes, industry and commerce. The authors address the challenges of moving towards a sustainable society in which biological feedstocks, processes and products become the main pillars of the economy, together with the science and technology that makes this transition possible, including economic, infrastructure and policy issues."
"The topics presented in this volume are challenges of moving toward a sustainable society in which bio-based feedstocks, processes and products are fundamental pillars of the economy. One important feature of the book is that it discusses the necessary topics of economics, infrastructure and policy. The book can be a very valuable scientific support for the specialists interested in conservation of non-renewable resources and development of biorefineries - technologies for bio-conversion."
