ENGG 261 - Biofuels and Bioenergy

Description

Bioenergy technologies will be surveyed, including feedstocks, bioelectricity production, biofuel production, and conversion technologies. Fermentation-derived biofuels will then be considered in more detail including first, and second, generation biofuels as well as the fundamentals of microbial cellulose utilization. Consolidated bioprocessing will be examined with respect to feedstock solubilization, metabolic engineering, technoeconomic analysis, and research frontiers. Sustainability tools will be introduced and assessments discussed. The course will feature readings from the literature, guest lectures by field leaders, and student projects.
