The important strategic issue of the 21st century states that the struggle for existence as the struggle for sustainable energy. In the last few years, the interest in renewable fuels has increased dramatically due to high demand of energy and the limitation of fossil fuel. Given the rapidly increasing demand for energy which
is projected to double by mid-21st century, it is expected thatbiodiesels will become an important part of the global energy mix and make a significant contribution to meeting energy demand.

This valuable book gives a critical review on the recently emerged process intensification technologies for biodiesel production as well as the various methods for assessing biodiesel fuel quality. Inside, you will also learn about monitoring the trans-esterification reaction with advantages and drawbacks. The authors offer suggestions on selection of appropriate methods, which could provide a thrilling adventure ahead for all interested scientists, which makes this book of particular interest to biochemical engineers, academics, post graduate and graduate students, and industrial researchers in these areas of study.
