EGEE 439: Alternative Fuels from Biomass Sources

Dr. Caroline B. Clifford, Instructor

This course will examine the chemistry of technologies of bio-based sources for power generation and transportation fuels.

When you successfully complete this course, you will be prepared to:

  • describe various biomasses that can be utilized for energy and fuel generation;
  • explain the composition of various processes necessary for biomass processing;
  • utilize the necessary chemistry, as well as mass and energy balances, that would be utilized in a biorefining facility;
  • analyze how to utilize biofuels in current fuel infrastructure;
  • illustrate what is required in a biorefinery.
