Description - Fuels, Chemicals and Materials from the Oceans and Aquatic Sources by Francesca M. Kerton
Fuels, Chemicals and Materials from the Oceans and Aquatic Sources provides a holistic view of fuels, chemicals and materials from renewable sources in the oceans and other aquatic media. It presents established and recent results regarding the use of water-based biomass, both plants and animals,for value-added applications beyond food.
The book begins with an introductory chapter which provides an overview of ocean and aquatic sources for the production of chemicals and materials. Subsequent chapters focus on the use of various ocean bioresources and feedstocks, including microalgae, macroalgae, and waste from aquaculture and fishing industries, including fish oils, crustacean and mollusc shells.
Fuels, Chemicals and Materials from the Oceans and Aquatic Sources serves as a valuable reference for academic and industrial professionals working on the production of chemicals, materials and fuels from renewable feedstocks. It will also prove useful for researchers in the fields of green and sustainable chemistry, marine sciences and biotechnology.
Topics covered include:
* Production and conversion of green macroalgae
* Marine macroalgal biomass as an energy feedstock
* Microalgae bioproduction
* Bioproduction and utilization of chitin and chitosan
* Applications of mollusc shells
* Crude fish oil as a potential fuel
