The effective conversion of biomass to value-added items has develop into an immense learn sector within the pursuit of choices to petroleum-based feedstocks; hydrogenation and hydrogenolysis are very important instruments to reaching this objective. This publication provides entire insurance of the various catalysts for those reactions, focusing on the effective conversion of bio-based molecules and biopolymers.
The editor, Roberto Rinaldi, is an stated chief within the box of biomass conversion, and has introduced jointly specialists from around the globe to envision all features of the method, together with the solvents, catalysts and feedstocks utilized in sleek biorefineries. attention is additionally given to the basics of operating a plant, akin to gear and security issues.
As the biorefinery expands to satisfy the most recent discoveries in biomass conversion, this publication presents a radical grounding within the topic and should be a necessary connection with researchers on the leading edge of studying new items, businesses wishing to scale-up biomass conversion, and postgraduate scholars of sustainable chemistry and chemical engineering.

For electrolysis, the production cost is at least partially oﬀset by the fact that the expensive transportation of hydrogen is not required. In addition, hydrogen could be supplied directly at the pressure level needed. Thermochemical cycles using renewable energy do not seem to be suitable to provide hydrogen for biomass conversion, since solarthermal plants are typically located in arid regions with a high fraction of direct irradiation and little rainfall. Logically, these regions are not conducive to energy crops, and so high costs for the hydrogen transportation would result.

The direct conversion of vegetable oils or animal fats into linear or branched alkanes is the core technology for the production of the second generation of biodiesel,38–40 as presented in more detail in Chapters 8 and 9. 5. Finally, hydrogenated vegetable oils and fats are extremely important for the food and chemical industries. The selectivity of the catalytic process determines the chemical and physical properties of the hydrogenated products, defining the application potential and therefore the product value, as discussed indepth in Chapter 10.
