Book Excerpt : A Thermo-economic Approach to Energy from Waste provides readers with the tools to analyze the effectiveness of biomass waste conversion into value-added products and how thermochemical conversion methods can be commercialized with minimum environmental impact. The book provides a comprehensive overview of biomass conversion technologies through pyrolysis, including the types of reactors available, reactor mechanisms, and the up-gradation of bio-oil. Following this, insights into the fundamental concepts behind the biomass pyrolysis system are provided from life cycle assessment and Aspen plus design analysis. Examples are provided of waste to energy conversion technologies, focusing on how life cycle and Aspen plus tools simulate the possible environmental impact of various processes involved in the pyrolysis system, and include discussion of up-gradation techniques, different pyrolysis reactors, and characterization of pyrolysis products. A Techno-economic analysis of the Fischer-Tropsch reactor integrated with biomass gasification is discussed, addressing surplus biomass and challenges in biomass utilization, various pretreatment methods, the kinetics of biomass gasification for syngas generation and concepts behind biofuel synthesis from Fischer Tropsch reactor. The pros and cons of various biomass conversion technologies are discussed in detail, including energy potential from biomass through gasification technologies, and environmental analysis. Case studies are provided on waste disposal in selected favelas (slums) of Rio de Janeiro, including data on subnormal clusters, and analyses of solid waste in the 37 Slums and Catumbi. Step-by-step guidance is provided on how to use a life cycle assessment approach to analyze the potential impact of various waste-to-energy conversion technologies and a brief overview of the common applications of LCA in other geographical locations are presented, including USA, Europe, China, and Brazil. Finally, waste-to-value-added functional catalysts for the transesterification process in biodiesel production is discussed alongside various other novel technologies for biodiesel production, process simulation, and techno-economic analysis of biodiesel production. Bringing together research and real-world case studies from an LCA perspective, A Thermo-economic Approach to Energy from Waste provides an ideal reference for researchers and practitioners interested in waste-to-energy, LCA, and the sustainable production of bioenergy. Presents an overview of the technologies for production of biofuels from waste via pyrolysis and gasification Provides a guide to the utilization of LCA to assess the economic and environmental impact of value-added products Describes real-world case studies on the implementation of LCA in waste-to-energy scenarios
