During the last few years, there has been increasing focus on developing the processes and technologies for the conversion of biomass to liquid and gaseous fuels and chemicals, in particular to develop low-cost technologies. The book would provide most up-dated information and technological perspective on the topic and will be useful for the general readers, policy planners, science managers to gain the knowledge and advancement of information on the subject matter.This book provides date-based scientific information on the most advanced and innovative processing of biomass as well as the process development elements on thermo-chemical processing of biomass for the production of biofuels and bio-products on (biomass-based biorefinery). The conversion of biomass to biofuels and other value-added products on the principle biorefinery offers potential from technological perspectives as alternate energy. Considering this, the book covers with a wide variety of topics on the thermo-chemical conversion of biomass. The book covers intensive R&D and technological developments done during the last few years in the area of renewable energy utilizing biomass as feedstock and will be highly beneficial for the researchers, scientists and engineers working in the area of biomass-biofuels- biorefinery.Provides information on the most advanced and innovative thermo-chemical conversion technology for biomassUseful as reference bookProvides information on large scales such as thermo-chemical biorefineryUseful for researchers intending to study scale-upProvides information on integration of process and technology on thermo-chemical conversion of biomassUseful for researchers and industryA book designed as a text book not merely a collection of research articlesUseful as text book for graduate students and reference book for researchers
