ERT 429/3 ENERGY FROM BIORESOURCES
This course introduces energy production that can be generated from bioresources or biomass which is an alternative way of producing energy from fossil-based fuels. This course emphasizes the use of more environmental-friendly technologies which can lead to reduction of pollution, thus sustaining the ecology system. The contents cover the characteristics of biofuels, bioresources suitable for conversion technologies, biological routes and chemical routes in producing fuels, and also the limitations of bioconversion processes.
Ability to differentiate the characteristics of biofuels and compare the process descriptions of various biofuel production.
Ability to evaluate the limitations of biofuel productions processes.
Ability to propose a biofuel production process from potential biological feedstocks.
