Description

The US has established renewable fuel standards that stipulate ethanol be produced from corn starch. This policy has caused some controversy in that many feel it may not be a good idea to have our food and biofuel production compete with one another. Indeed, evidence has shown that most other food crops have risen in price substantially during the manufacture of ethanol from corn. The world has been seeking alternatives to the biofuel production dilemma we are in. This book describes other types of manufacturing technologies that produce an array of biofuels from renewables that do not come from corn or other food crops. Technologies such as renewable diesel production, alternative ethanol manufacture, biodiesel production, biofuels made from algae and thermochemical production methods are discussed in detail throughout the book.show more
