This handbook and ready reference is the first to combine the fields of high throughput experimentation and catalytic process development for biobased materials in industry. It describes the entire workflow from idea, approach, research, and process development, right up to commercialization by application of advanced methodologies and technologies. A large part of the book is devoted to the use of such advanced technologies as high throughput experimentation and equipment, as well as to reactor and process design models, with a wide selection of real life examples included at each stage.
The contributions are from authors at leading companies, providing first-hand information and knowledge that is hard to find elsewhere.
