ENGG 261: Biomass Energy Systems
Can be used by undergraduates for A.B. course count only
A consideration of utilizing plant biomass to produce energy (fuels and electrical power) as well as complementary coproducts. Technical aspects will be considered with respect to biomass production and logistics, pretreatment, hydrolysis, fermentation, product recovery, and thermochemical processing. Design of integrated processes will also be addressed. Evaluation of biomass energy systems will be considered from economic, environmental, and resource perspectives.
