Sustainable sources of energy and a supply of good quality water are two major challenges facing modern societies across the globe. Biomass from cultivated plants may be used to generate energy, but at the cost of contaminated surface waters from pesticide and fertiliser use.
This two-volume set examines the potential use of biomass as both a source of sustainable energy and a resource to tackle contaminated soils and wastewaters. Consideration is given to non-food crops, bacteria ,and fungi as sources of biomass and the book enables the reader to identify the best local bioresources according to the desired application.
With contributions from across the globe, this is an essential guide to meeting the demand for energy and pollution remediation by exploiting local and renewable resources. The example scenarios given may inspire policy makers and local officers, while chemical engineers and environmental scientists in both academia and industry will benefit from the comprehensive review of current thinking and application.Sustainable energy production and a supply of good quality water are two major challenges facing modern societies today and for decades ahead. In this context, renewable biomass presents both a sustainable energy source and an alternative to expensive water treatment technologies. This book gives an overview of the various ways to valorize biomass for energy production as well as for pollution treatment of contaminated soils and wastewaters. It focuses on the fact that we could produce renewable energy from biomass without using corn, sugarcane or colza oil, but lignocelluloses, bacteria and algae instead. Furthermore, water or soil pollution can be treated using algae and fungi. This book guides the reader to identifying the local bioresources which could be valorized and chosen for the remediation of a pollution-related problem or a response to an energetic need.This book guides the reader to identifying the local bioresourcesl√j
