Ethanol and methanol from cellulosic biomass

, : Ethanol and methanol from cellulosic biomass. Renewable energy: sources for fuels and electricity: 865-923

The fundamentals of ethanol and methanol production are explained and the suitability of using alcohol as a fuel is considered. The processes required to obtain ethanol and methanol from cellulosic biomass, and ethanol from starch crops are described. The capital and operating costs of producing ethanol and methanol from cellulosic biomass or starch crops are tabulated and discussed.
