Increasing environmental awareness, stricter legislations and rising prices have all intensified efforts to shift from fossil fuels to cleaner sources of energy.
These have resulted in a rise in the utlilisation of biomass as a sustainable, low-carbon fuel source, and in turn, the development of bio-refineries. This book, entitled Biorefineries and chemical processes edited by Jhuma Sadhukhan, Kok Siew Ng and Elias Martinez Hernandez , addresses the design, integration and sustainability analysis of biorefineries.
It gives a comprehensive overview of all aspects of biorefinery design, focusing on including process synthesis and lifecycle assessment for a holistic and integrative approach.
The book is divided into five main sections — Part I provides an introduction to the concept of biorefineries, and its design. The sustainable and efficient conversion of biomass requires a combined knowledge of chemistry, physics, engineering and practical tools.
These ideas are presented to the reader, along with an overview of the types of feedstock used, process technologies employed and products generated. Part II addresses the tools that are useful in the design of sustainable and cost-effective biorefineries. These include economic analysis, lifecycle assessment LCA , heat integration and utility systems, multi-criteria analysis, value analysis, combined economic value and environmental impact analysis EVEI and optimization.
Chapters 2—8 are devoted to explaining each tool in detail, and also include relevant problems, along with their solutions. Part III then moves on to actual process design and synthesis of biomass-based processes. It discusses the different types of conversion processes such as gasification, pyrolysis, etc. Biopolymer synthesis is also been dealt with in depth, accompanied by process design, modelling, integration and LCA.
Modelling of CO 2 capture, design of novel flowsheets for processes involving new methods of separation and integration are introduced. Importantly, economic and lifecycle assessments are included wherever an opportunity presents itself. Part IV describes the different biorefinery processes — Fischer-Tropsch process, methanol synthesis, bio-oil treating in membrane reactors, fuels cells, and even algae biorefineries. It includes flowsheet design, problems, energy calculations, and LCA wherever applicable.
Moreover, kinetic and diffusion modelling for heterogeneously catalysed reactions are discussed in detail, with the production of biodiesel as an example. Part V is not printed as a separate section in this book, but consists of additional resources that can be found online.
This part deals with the interacting systems of biorefineries — that is, the sustainability of the interaction of biorefinery process systems with the material and energy systems. The three chapters in this part deal with minimisation of waste and emissions, energy storage systems, and the optimisation and reuse of water.
In addition, a lifecycle-based approach to solving problems is explained with the help of four case studies. However, it would have been more convenient for the reader if this section were also part of the textbook, since it becomes easier to go back to particular sections while reading from a textbook. This book aims to bridge the gap between engineering and sustainability in bio-based processes, with the help of analytical tools for economic and environmental assessment — and it succeeds in doing so.
In conclusion, this book introduces the reader to the rapidly-developing industry of biorefineries, with a multi-disciplinary approach. It is a good resource for undergraduate and post-graduate students who want to learn about biorefineries; it can also be valuable for researchers who are looking to practically apply these analytical tools in their work.
Objective Green Processing and Synthesis is an open access, single-blind peer-reviewed journal that provides up-to-date research both on fundamental as well as applied aspects of innovative green process development and chemical synthesis, giving an appropriate share to industrial views.
The contributions are cutting edge, high-impact, authoritative, and provide both pros and cons of potential technologies. Green Processing and Synthesis provides a platform for scientists and engineers, especially chemists and chemical engineers, but is also open for interdisciplinary research from other areas such as physics, materials science, or catalysis.

It covers recent techniques in batch process integration with a particular focus on the capabilities of the mathematical techniques. There is a section on graphical techniques as well as performance comparison between graphical and mathematical techniques. Prior to delving into the intricacies of wastewater minimisation and heat integration in batch processes, the book introduces the reader to the basics of scheduling which is aimed at capturing the essence of time. A chapter on the synthesis of batch plants to highlight the importance of time in design of batch plants is also presented through a real-life case study. The book is targeted at undergraduates and postgraduate students, researchers in batch process integration, practising engineers and technical managers.
