Abstract

Biofuel is a rapidly growing research field and fast-moving industry. Since the publication of the first edition of Handbook of Biofuels Production in 2011, significant research progresses in biofuel production technology have been made, improved understanding of biofuel production processes has been acquired, and the industrial production of biofuels has moved forward. With this in mind, the second edition of the handbook keeps the underlying principles of various biofuel production technologies, and covers the latest progress in biofuel-related fields.
