Biofuel Feedstocks and Production
BEE 499/599 3 Credits
Bioethanol is one of the important alternatives to fossil fuels. This course will provide an overview of the biofuel feedstocks for production of fuels, feed and industrially valuable chemicals. Issues in feedstock utilization such as suitability, availability, sustainability and economic viability will be addressed. This course will cover the preprocessing, post processing and fermentation technologies in ethanol production. Influence of feedstock composition and process technologies on ethanol and coproducts will be discussed.

We have moved the course to OSU Blackboard since Winter 2011. However, you can access all the course lectures and the references for 2010 course at: 2010 course website
