As electric bills are expensive and nature’s incomes are at high disposal rate to the environment with an increase of population, the use of biomass sources as feedstock for the production of energy is mandatory to protect the environment and boost the economy. Bioenergy is one of a range of renewable energy sources that can contribute to addressing the global issues associated with climate change, energy security, population growth and a global increase in per capita energy demand. This module provides an overview of key topics on sustainable bioenergy production, including the main biomass systems for bioenergy generation and the wide range of bioenergy conversion and utilisation methods. This module adopts a whole systems approach and enables students to critically appraise the sustainability of various biomass energy production routes.

Outcomes

  1. Analyze types of biomass sources to be used as feedstock for different types of biofuel production
  2. Design and assemble customized tools for production of bioenergy from different types of feedstock
  3. Analyze scenarios for bioenergy implementation for urban and rural development and environmental pollution control
  4. Communicate concepts and techniques relevant to bio-energy to solve personal, community and environmental problems
  5. Find opportunities for private business operations or private – public partnership
  6. Influence in the drafting and acting on prospects of the national bioenergy policy
