AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course describes the major alternative energy conversion processes. The course will be focused on chemical and biochemical processes to produce sustainable and clean energy for example biodiesel from microalgae, bioethanol from cellulosic and lignocellulosic biomasses and biogas from anaerobic digestion.

TEACHING METHODS

Lectures

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

- Importance of sustainable energy production with low environmental impacts based on the use of different biomass resources: metabolic potentials of microorganisms and biomasses to produce biofuels and chemicals.
- Conversion processes from photosynthetic microorganisms, plants and plant residues, and urban wastes into biofuel production: importance of operative parameters to enhance the conversion yield and the product quality.
- Process engineering of conversion processes: quantification of key parameters via mathematical formulations, energy and mass balances, plant design.
