Biomass use is growing globally. Biomass is biological material derived from living, or recently living organisms. It most often refers to plants or plant-based materials which are specifically called lignocellulosic biomass. Biomass (organic matter that can be converted into energy) may include food crops, crops for energy, crop residues, wood waste and byproducts, and animal manure. It is one of the most plentiful and well-utilized sources of renewable energy in the world. Broadly speaking, it is organic material produced by the photosynthesis of light. The chemical materials (organic compounds of carbons) are stored and can then be used to generate energy. The most common biomass used for energy is wood from trees. Wood has been used by humans for producing energy for heating and cooking for a very long time. As an energy source, biomass can either be used directly via combustion to produce heat, or indirectly after converting it to various forms of biofuel. Conversion of biomass to biofuel can be achieved by different methods which are broadly classified into: thermal, chemical, and biochemical methods. Biomass gasification is the conversion of solid fuels like wood and agricultural residues into a combustible gas mixture. The gasification system basically consists of a gasifier unit, a purification system and energy converters- burner or engine. This book offers comprehensive coverage of the design and analysis of biomass gasification, the key technology enabling the production of biofuels from all viable sources like sugar beet and sweet sorghum. It aims at creating an understanding of the nature of biomass resources for energy and fuels, the variety of processes that are available for conversion of the wastes into energy or fuels. The book discusses the overview of the Biomass Energy along with their Properties, Composition, Benefits, Characteristics and Manufacturing Process of Biomass based products. Also it contains suppliers contact details of plant & machinery with their photographs. The content includes biomass renewable energy, prospective renewable resources for bio-based processes, biochemical from biomass, biomass based chemicals, biofuel production from biomass crops, biomass gasification, reuse of bio-genic iron oxides and woody biomass fly ash in cement based materials and agricultural areas, biofuel briquettes from biomass, biomass based activated carbon, environmental aspects. It will be a standard reference book for Professionals, Decision-makers, Engineers, those studying and researching in this important area and others interested in the field of biomass based products. Professionals in academia and industry will appreciate this comprehensive and practical reference book, due to its multidisciplinary nature.

Circular Bioeconomy: Technologies for Waste Remediation covers in-depth information about the strategies and approaches facilitating the integration of technologies for wastewater and solid waste remediation. The book highlights the models developed to valorise wastes to produce biobased products. Wastewaters and solid waste are abundant secondary source for finite resources, hence nutrient removal from waste streams is important in a circular bioeconomy. Remediation/valorization of solid waste or wastewater would reduce environmental pollution. Integration of technologies, including life-cycle analysis and techno-economic analysis for such processes to valorize the wastes for value-added products is one of the circular economy aspects that needs to be given a holistic and all-inclusive approach and have been addressed in this book. Various chapters presented in the book have put focus on the sustainability approaches as the centre theme in order to facilitate industries and policymakers for adopting circular economy goals. Since the principle idea of circular bioeconomy is to make transition from linear economy, it involves advanced technological and designing breakthroughs to reduce waste with a closed looped system. This pioneers a cradle to cradle and waste to resources approach. Integration of various technologies has been considered as possibly the best way to utilize the wastes. Covers integration of technologies and processes for waste remediation Narrates recent developments and perspectives on value added products from wastes Summarizes recent developments in life cycle assessment and techno economic analysis using wastes for sustainable development Offers academicians, engineers, researchers and stakeholders help in adapting suitable technologies for solid waste and wastewater management
