This book presents a collection of studies on state-of-art techniques developed specifically for lignocellulose component derivation, and for the production of functional materials, composite polymers, carbonaceous biocatalysts, and pellets from lignocellulosic biomass, with an emphasis on using sustainable chemistry and engineering to develop innovative materials and fuels for practical application.  Technological strategies for the physical processing or biological conversion of biomass for material production are also presented. All chapters were contributed by respected experts in the field from around the globe, providing a broad range of perspectives on cutting-edge applications.

The book offers an ideal reference guide for academic researchers and industrial engineers in the fields of natural renewable materials, biorefinery of lignocellulose, biofuels and environmental engineering. It can also be used as a comprehensive reference source for university students in chemical engineering, material science and environmental engineering.

Zhen Fang is a professor and leader of the biomass group at Nanjing Agricultural University, as well as the inventor of the "fast hydrolysis" process. He is listed in the "Most Cited Chinese Researchers" in energy for 2014-2017 (Elsevier-Scopus). He specializes in the thermal/biochemical conversion of biomass, synth...
