Abstract:
Pyrolyse heeft de toekomst. In Moerdijk is men daarvan overtuigd. Deze technologie is bij uitstek geschikt om uiteenlopende rest- en afvalstromen, van biomassa tot ‘moeilijke’ fossiele plastics te verwerken tot olie, gas en koolstof. Uit onderzoek van Avans Hogeschool blijkt dat met pyrolysetechniek een enorme CO2 besparing gerealiseerd kan worden (zie ook Agro&Chemie 2018/3). Daarom liggen er grote (commerciële) kansen. In dit artikel laten we twee experts aan het woord: Joop Groen van Viride en Paul de Wild van ECN part of TNO. Samen maakten zij een eerste tussenrapport voor het project Pyrolyseproeftuin Zuid-Nederland.

Social Life Cycle Approach as a Tool for Promoting the Market Uptake of Bio-Based Products from a Consumer Perspective \ Sustainability [Article]
Falcone, P.M. \ Imbert, E. \ 2018
life cycle assessment - biobased economy - biobased materials - consumers - sustainability - biomass - markets - Sustainable development - Environmental policy - Environmental degradation - Ecology - Environmental degradation - Environmental policy - Natural resources Management - Sustainable development

Abstract:
The sustainability of bio-based products, especially when compared with fossil based products, must be assured. The life cycle approach has proven to be a promising way to analyze the social, economic and environmental impacts of bio-based products along the whole value chain. Until now, however, the social aspects have been under-investigated in comparison to environmental and economic aspects. In this context, the present paper aims to identify the main social impact categories and indicators that should be included in a social sustainability assessment of bio-based products, with a focus on the consumers’ category. To identify which social categories and indicators are most relevant, we carry out a literature review on existing social life cycle studies; this is followed by a focus group with industrial experts and academics. Afterwards, we conduct semi-structured interviews with some consumer representatives to understand which social indicators pertaining to consumers are perceived as relevant. Our findings highlight the necessity for the development and dissemination of improved frameworks capable of exploiting the consumers’ role in the ongoing process of market uptake of bio-based products. More specifically, this need regards the effective inclusion of some social indicators (i.e., end users’ health and safety, feedback mechanisms, transparency, and end-of-life responsibility) in the social life cycle assessment scheme for bio-based products. This would allow consumers, where properly communicated, to make more informed and aware purchasing choices, therefore having a flywheel effect on the market diffusion of a bio-based product.

Verkenning chemische recycling : hoe groot zijn - en worden - de kansen voor klimaatbeleid [Monograph]
Broeren, Martijn \ Roos Lindgreen, Erik \ Bergsma, Geert \ 2018
chemistry - residual streams - biomass - bioenergy - biobased economy - biobased chemistry

Abstract:
In zowel het nieuwe Regeerakkoord als in de transitieagenda’s voor de circulaire economie wordt chemische recycling als een belangrijke oplossing voor de verduurzaming van de kunststofketen gezien. Zo wordt in de transitieagenda voor kunststoffen genoemd dat 10% van alle plastics in 2030 chemisch gerecycled zullen worden. Chemische recycling kan een interessante optie zijn als aanvulling op de huidige mechanische recycling, waarbij relatief hoogwaardige grondstoffen worden geproduceerd.

Biofuels: Greenhouse Gas Mitigation and Global Warming : Next Generation Biofuels and Role of Biotechnology [Monograph]
Kumar, Ashwani \ Ogita, Shinjiro \ Yau, Yuan-Yeu \ 2018
Energy - Renewable energy resources - Agriculture - Educational technology - Nature - Environment - Renewable energy sources - Clean energy industries - Climatic changes - Economics Sociological aspects - Biomass energy

Abstract:
This timely book is a compilation of edited articles by distinguished international scientists discussing global warming, its causes as well as present and future solutions. Social and economic growth at global level is measured in terms of GDP, which requires energy inputs generally based on fossil fuel resources. These, however, are major contributors to increasing levels of CO2, causing 15 tonnes of green house gas emissions per capita. Renewable sources of energy offer an alternative to fossil fuels, and would help reduce this to the 2 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per capita per annum needed to achieve sustainable growth. As such, the book discusses the next-generation of biofuels and all related aspects, based on the editors’ significant investigations on biofuels over the last 30 years. It also presents the latest research findings from research work carried out by contemporary researchers. Presenting global biofuel perspectives, it examines various issues related to sustainable development of biofuels in the contexts of agriculture, forestry, industry and economic growth. It covers the 1st to 4th generation biofuels, as well as the status of biofuel resources and their potential in carbon neutral economy. Offering a comprehensive, state-of-art overview of current and future biofuels at local and global levels, this book appeals to administrators, policy makers, universities and research institutions.

Energy from microalgae [Monograph]
Jacob-Lopes, Eduardo \ Zepka, Leila Queiroz \ Queiroz, Maria Isabel \ 2018
Biomass energy - Microalgae

Abstract:
This book presents an authoritative and comprehensive overview of the production and use of microalgal biomass and bioproducts for energy generation. It also offers extensive information on engineering approaches to energy production, such as process integration and process intensification in harnessing energy from microalgae. Issues related to the environment, food, chemicals and energy supply pose serious threats to nations’ success and stability. The challenge to provide for a rapidly growing global population has made it imperative to find new technological routes to increase the production of consumables while also bearing in mind the biosphere’s ability to regenerate resources. Microbial biomass is a bioresource that provides effective solutions to these challenges. Divided into eight parts, the book explores microalgal production systems, life cycle assessment and the bio-economy of biofuels from microalgae, process integration and process intensification applied to microalgal biofuels production. In addition, it discusses the main fuel products obtained from microalgae, summarizing a range of useful energy products derived from algae-based systems, and outlines future developments. Given the book’s breadth of coverage and extensive bibliography, it offers an essential resource for researchers and industry professionals working in renewable energy.

Contesting Conservation: Shahtoosh Trade and Forest Management in Jammu and Kashmir, India [Monograph]
Gupta, Saloni \ 2018
Environment - Forest management - Nature conservation - Environmental sociology - Environmental policy - Export controls - Forest conservation Government policy

Abstract:
This book explores today’s changing intellectual climate, wherein understanding politics at different levels from global to local is considered mandatory in order to appraise the outcome of nature conservation interventions. By carefully examining two such processes – the ban on shahtoosh trade and the ‘National Afforestation Programme’ in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, the book reveals how these processes are influenced by politics at different levels – from their introduction at the macro-level to their implementation at the micro-level – and in turn become coloured by the agendas and interests of the various stakeholders involved. Throughout the book, one priority is to give a voice to the poor resource-users who have been traditionally dependent on wildlife and forest resources for mere subsistence. Yet, these same people are who bear the brunt of nature conservation costs, rather than those actors who are responsible for the most serious violations in pursuit of greater profits. Contemporary Environmental Sociology is chiefly characterised by its focus on power relations in resource conservation and management. In ‘political ecology’ literature, too – especially after recognising the paradoxes and limitations of approaches such as ‘sustainable development’, ‘sustainable livelihoods’ and ‘community based natural resource management’ – there is a growing concern for critical analyses of multi-level politics in connection with nature conservation. The purpose of the book is not to challenge the gravity of environmental concerns, but to question the dominance of conservation interests over the subsistence needs of local communities, and to strike a balance between environmental and social justice. It argues that, unless and until more just accountability for the affected populations is ensured, conservation policies are unlikely to meet the goals of sustainable resource management. Given its critical engagement with human-nature conflicts in Jammu and Kashmir, the book offers a unique resource for students and scholars of Environmental Sociology, Political Ecology, Natural Resources Management, Conflict Studies and Human Rights Studies.

Microbial fuel cell : a bioelectrochemical system that converts waste to watts [Monograph]
Das, Debabrata \ 2018
Biomass energy - Microbial fuel cells

Abstract:
This book represents a novel attempt to describe microbial fuel cells (MFCs) as a renewable energy source derived from organic wastes. Bioelectricity is usually produced through MFCs in oxygen-deficient environments, where a series of microorganisms convert the complex wastes into electrons via liquefaction through a cascade of enzymes in a bioelectrochemical process. The book provides a detailed description of MFC technologies and their applications, along with the theories underlying the electron transfer mechanisms, the biochemistry and the microbiology involved, and the material characteristics of the anode, cathode and separator. It is intended for a broad audience, mainly undergraduates, postgraduates, energy researchers, scientists working in industry and at research organizations, energy specialists, policymakers, and anyone else interested in the latest developments concerning MFCs. .
