Biofuel Production Technology

when 1 January 2014 - 1 January 2014

In a world with limited mineral oil resources and an environment that is under pressure due to rising temperatures, a transition to alternative energy sources is necessary. The ideas are numerous, but the economy is limiting. In this summer school course, we will look at the most advanced biofuel production processes and try to give a broad overview as well as an in-depth understanding of these. We will look at the processes and the economy and try to determine what limits the expansion of biofuel production. We will also try to identify how processes can be optimised to large scale as well as to small scale processes.

Course leader
