Editors: Martín, Mariano (Ed.)
Maximizes reader insights into the energy value chain from harvesting the raw material to the distribution of the product
Presents an in-depth analysis of the challenges and opportunities that novel technologies and renewable sources provide
Includes a real-world case study of the operation of "El Hierro" island as an example of the current effort towards more efficient use of resources
Presenting a comprehensive analysis of the use of alternative sources of energy and technologies to produce fuels and power, this book describes the energy value chain from harvesting the raw material, (i.e solar, wind, biomass or shale gas) followed by analysis of the processing steps into power, fuels and/or chemicals and finally the distribution of the products.
Featuring an examination of the techno-economic processes and integration opportunities which can add value to by-products or promote the use of different sources of energy within the same facility, this book looks at the tools that can make this integration possible as well as utilising a real world case study. The case study of the operation of "El hierro" island is used as an example of the current effort towards more efficient use of the resources available.
Tackling head on the open challenges of the supply, the variability of the source and its prediction, the descrion of novel processes that are being developed and evaluated for their transformation as well as how we can distribute them to the consumer and how we can integrate the new chemicals, fuels and power within the current system and infrastructure, the book takes a process based perspective with such an approach able to help us in the use and integration of these sources of energy and novel technologies.
