3th World Congress on Biofuels and Bioenergy
Biofuels and Bioenergy biofuel is a fuel that is produced through contemporary biological processes, such as agriculture and anaerobic digestion, rather than a fuel produced by geological processes such as those involved in the formation of fossil fuels, such as coal and petroleum, from prehistoric biological matter. Biofuels can be derived directly from plants, or indirectly from agricultural, commercial, domestic, and/or industrial wastes. Renewable biofuels generally involve contemporary carbon fixation, such as those that occur in plants or microalgae through the process of photosynthesis. Bioenergy is renewable energy made available from materials derived from biological sources. Biomass is any organic material which has stored sunlight in the form of chemical energy. As a fuel, it may include wood, wood waste, straw, manure, sugarcane, and many other by-products from a variety of agricultural processes.
Future & Scope:
Bioenergy and biofuels are recognized globally as crucial elements of the future energy matrix, without which the reduction in greenhouse gases needed to reduce the acceleration of global warming and climate change will not be achievable. Yet, in 2012 the oil-equivalent production of biofuels was less than 2% of the amount of oil produced from geological reserves.
The series Green Chemistry and Sustainable technology aim to present cutting-edge research and important advances in green chemistry. Green chemical engineering and sustainable industrial technology. Environmentally benign chemical synthesis and processes (green catalysis, green solvents, and reagents, atom-economy synthetic methods. Green chemicals and energy produced from renewable resources (biomass, carbon dioxide etc). Noval materials and technologies for energy production and storage (Bio-fuels and bioenergies hydrogen fuels cells solar cells lithium-ion batteries etc). Green technologies for environmental sustainability prevention, environmental redemption etc.)
The series Green Chemistry and sustainable Technology is intended to provide an accessible reference resource for postgraduate students, academic researchers and industrial professionals who are interested in green chemistry and technologies for sustainable development.
