About the book
The book is imagined as divided into six sections, each thematically oriented towards specific topics. The first section of the book should contain an analysis of the quantity and origin of waste biodegradable raw materials necessary for processing. This analysis should include the types of raw materials and their potential, the method of its obtaining, processing and transport, and also raw material requirements in terms of the possibility of further processing.
The second section should include the possibilities of adapting the unit biomass conversion processes aimed at obtaining energy carriers, biochemicals and other products of added value, the efficiency of unit processes and proposals of methods for dealing with residues from these processes.
The third section of the book should include proposals for the concept of building biorefinery systems aimed at obtaining energy carriers or other non-energy products with added value. This section should describe the autonomous supply systems of biorefineries, the mass and energy balance of these systems and the efficiency of complex processes.
In the fourth section of the book a quantitative and qualitative analysis of possible products and their potential market demand and area of its application should be discussed. Also the analysis of the substitution of petroleum products with biorefinery products should be described.
The fifth section should include an analysis of the life cycle of various unit biorefinery processes and biorefinery systems along with an assessment of the emissivity of these processes. The carbon and water footprint evaluation could also be included.
The sixth section of the book should describe the state of research and development into the effectiveness of biorefinery processes in various countries as well as social, economic and legal conditions in the construction and operation of these systems.
