Systems Perspectives on Biorefineries 2014
Edited book, 2014
Replacing fossil fuels with biomass in the production of energy carriers, materials
and specialty chemicals is a challenge that now confronts humanity. Numerous
questions demand an answer: in which applications we shall use the limited
biomass resource; how the raw materials are best refined; if biorefineries can be
integrated in existing industries; and what policy instruments are required to realise
the biorefineries of the future.
There is not one final answer to questions like these. However, different systems
studies can provide us with complementary pieces of the puzzle. These can be
valuable by themselves, or be brought together into a larger and more complex
picture. Systems Perspectives on Biorefineries 2014 contains twelve chapters
that address different topics related to the immensely important issue of how the
world’s biomass resources can, or should, be converted into the goods we need
Systems Perspectives on Biorefineries is an evolving ebook with annual updates.
