About this Book
This is the first book dedicated to biorefineries and biobased industrial technologies, and, as such, is directed towards the technological principles of biorefineries, green processes, plants, concepts, current and forthcoming biobased product lines, as well as the economic aspects. Since the hot topics of green chemistry and green processes are of a multidisciplinary interest, this book will benefit the whole spectrum of the process industry, including chemical engineers, process engineers, apparatus construction engineers, chemical industry, chemists in industry, and biotechnologists.
The editors and authors are all internationally recognized experts from industry and academia, including Dr. Patrick Gruber, the former Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Cargill Dow, a winner of the U.S. Presidential Green Chemistry Award and holder of more than 40 patents.
