Course Description

Biomass Energy Conv ThermoChem

This course provides the student with a technical understanding of biomass energy conversions with a focus on thermal-chemical conversions (e.g., liquefaction, pyrolysis, gasification, combustion) of plant and waste compounds into useful energy sources such as torrified wood, char, bio-oils, synthesis gas. The focus of the course includes both small-scale and production-level energy systems designed to convert energy crops and waste streams into useable energy sources and products for chemicals, liquid and gaseous fuels, heat and electricity. Prerequisite: RENG 210 or RENG 310, and CHEM 101 or CHEM 121 3 credits (2 hours of lecture and 3 hours of laboratory), spring semester
