课程英文名称：Biomass EnergyEngineering and Technology
This course will introduce the students to energy supply sources and sustainability with focus on biomass compared to other green technologies. It will address issues associated with the design, performance, environmental and social impact of the technologies used. The basic concepts applied in chemical, biochemical and environmental industries together with transfer mechanisms fundamentals including heat, mass and momentum transport will be taught. This knowledge will be used for the design of various types of equipment and reactors used in biomass utilization and conversion technologies.
