Nanotechnology and bioenergy: Innovations and applications
Nanotechnology has the potential to improve current technologies applied for biochemical as well as thermochemical processes for treatment and conversion of biomass to generate bioenergy in a variety of forms such as liquid biofuels, biohydrogen, biogas and electricity. These include improved materials for enzyme immobilization, materials with improved enzyme loading capacity, nanocatalysts, materials for storage of bioenergy products, materials for separation and purification of liquid biofuels, materials for improved performance of microbial fuel cells and so on. This chapter discusses in detail each of these areas. This chapter also elaborates on the applications of nanotechnology for bioenergy production, and defines the basic terms used in nanotechnology.
