Summary

The book serves as a reference document with both tutorial and research/technological value on the importance of catalysis for the sustainable production of biofuels and biochemicals. Although it includes some general elements regarding the whole chain of biomass production-conversion-environment-economy-LCA, the main focus is placed on the description of the state-of-the-art on catalysts and catalytic processes that are expected to play a decisive role toward the "green" production of fuels and chemicals from biomass. Includes catalytic reaction mechanism schemes and facilitates a better/easier understanding of catalytic processes Includes flow diagrams of bench-, pilot- and industrial-scale catalytic processing units and demonstrates clearly the various process technologies involved, enabling easy selection of the best process Incorporates many tables, enabling easy comparison of data based on a critical review of the available literature
