Course description:

The production of methane and alcohol-based fuels and their roles as a transportation fuel will lead to a re-discovery of opportunities to replace fossil-based fuels.  Bio-diesel and vegetable oil topics are necessary to show a true alternate energy source for internal combustion engines. Throughout this course, students will examine advanced energy conversion technologies and bio-systems. The course gives a further in-depth knowledge of relevant fundamental aspects connected to the utilization of biomass and the biomass fractions of waste streams for energy purposes in biochemical conversion processes for production of 1st and 2nd generation biofuels.

Course objectives

The aim of this course is to:

  • Empower the student with in-depth knowledge of how to obtain bioenergy by means of biochemical processes using different resources.
