Nature provides us with an abundance of chemical potential. Presenting an overview of the use of bioresources in the 21st century, Introduction to Chemicals from Biomass covers resources, chemical composition of biomass, key factors affecting composition, utilization of wastes, extraction technologies, controlled pyrolysis, fermentation, platform molecules, and green chemical technologies for their conversion to valuable chemicals. The text shows how smaller volume chemicals could become bulk chemicals as a result of a greater exploitation of biomass products, making it an important resource for academic and industrial scientists and researchers.It can be blended with gasoline up to 25% (common in Brazil since 2002 and called gasohol) and used in Otto engines. ... heavy vehicles with diesel engines and as a mixture of up to 85% with gasoline (E85) in flexible fuel vehicles (FFV) such as the Ford Taurus. ... to blend with gasoline inhigher concentrations withoutany harm to engines, has a higher energy content (about 30% higher), isbetterable toanbsp;...
