Biofuels and Bioproducts from Wet and Gaseous Waste Streams: Challenges and Opportunities

You are here

Biofuels and Bioproducts from Wet and Gaseous Waste Streams: Challenges and Opportunities, published by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office is the first comprehensive assessment of the resource potential and technology opportunities provided by feedstocks, including wastewater treatment-derived sludge and biosolids, animal manure, food waste, inedible fats and greases, biogas, and carbon dioxide streams. These feedstocks can be converted into renewable natural gas, diesel, and aviation fuels, or into valuable bioproducts.The assessment concludes that wet and gaseous organic waste streams represent a substantial and underutilized set of feedstocks for biofuels and biopower.
