Food waste as a valuable resource for the production of chemicals, materials and fuels. Current situation and global perspective
Increasing demand for fuels and chemicals, driven by factors including over-population, the threat of global warming and the scarcity of fossil resources, strains our resource system and necessitates
Introduction to Chemicals from Biomass
The Biorefinery Concept-An Integrated Approach, Evaluating the Environmental Effects of Chemistry and Green Metrics, and Prospects Arising from Developments in Plant Biotechnology andBiorefining are presented.
Biofuels: a technological perspective
Environmental issues, the growing demand for energy, political concerns and the medium-term depletion of petroleum has created the need for development of sustainable technologies based on renewable
Green chemistry for the second generation biorefinery—sustainable chemical manufacturing based on biomass
The material needs of society are reaching a crisis point. The demands of a growing and developing world population will soon exceed the capacity of our present fossil resource based infrastructure.
Green chemistry, biofuels, and biorefinery.
In the future, the commercial success of biofuels commensurate with consumer demand will depend on the availability of new green (bio)chemical technologies capable of converting waste biomass to fuel in a context of a biorefinery.
Starbons: new starch-derived mesoporous carbonaceous materials with tunable properties.
Carbon-based mesoporous materials with tunable surfaces and bulk properties can be synthesized by the low-temperature carbonization of expanded natural starches that are in turn prepared by a simple gelatinization-retrogradation process.
Supported metal nanoparticles on porous materials. Methods and applications.
This tutorial review presents an introduction to the field of supported metal nanoparticles (SMNPs) on porous materials, focusing on their preparation and applications in different areas.
