ISBN: 9781118062852

Covering the most cutting-edge pretreatment processes being used and studied today for the production of biogas, this book highlights the recent advances in the pretreatment and value addition of lignocellulosic wastes with the main focus on domestic and agro-industrial residues.

Biogas Production: Pretreatment Methods in Anaerobic Digestion

Product Description
This volume covers the most cutting-edge pretreatment processes being used and studied today for the production of biogas during anaerobic digestion processes using different feedstocks, in the most efficient and economical methods possible.  As an increasingly important piece of the "energy pie," biogas and other biofuels are being used more and more around the world in every conceivable area of industry and could be a partial answer to the energy problem and the elimination of global warming.
