About the book

The book aims to cover the most significant research findings in both the production and use of ethanol. The contents of the book will feature diverse topics that will comprise the optimization of raw materials to produce ethanol and the chemical reactions involved during the conversion of ethanol into complex molecules. Ethanol production methods from biomass and the human resources to produce ethanol will also be explored. Ethanol can serve as an alternative fuel owing to its versatile usage to produce hydrogen through reforming reactions from biomass and direct fuel cells, which is also considered a sustainable feedstock. The book welcomes contributions on the potential of ethanol as a viable future fuel component for energy production (based on thermodynamics, kinetics, and usage) and hydrogen production methods using ethanol in catalytic reforming processes. In addition to the modeling of various chemical processes and computer control and capital involved, the book aims to study the environmental impact of pollutants produced from ethanol and mixtures containing ethanol and the ways to control these pollutants. This book can be highly useful to academicians and scientists working in industrial sectors.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Martina Ivancic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
