Biogas from Waste and Renewable Resources: An Introduction


Written as a practical introduction to biogas plant design and operation, this book fills a huge gap
by presenting a systematic guide to this emerging technology -- information otherwise only
available in poorly intelligible reports by US governmental and other official agencies. The author
draws on teaching material from a university course as well as a wide variety of industrial biogas
projects he has been involved with, thus combining didactical skill with real-life examples.
Alongside biological and technical aspects of biogas generation, this timely work also looks at safety
and legal aspects as well as environmental considerations.

Authors bio:
Dieter Deublein is Professor for Applied Biotechnology at the Munich Unversity of Applied Sciences
(Germany). A graduate from the Technical University of Munich, he has more than two decades of
professional experience in the large scale processing of natural resources, mainly from food and
feed. Since 1992 he is a member of the Faculty of the Munich University of Applied Sciences, where
he has established a strong teaching record in biotechnology and environmental management. He
is a leading scientific authority on the technological aspects of biogas production, both in small-
scale and large-scale operations.
