Techno-economics and Life Cycle Assessment of Bioreactors: Post-Covid19 Waste Management Approach covers the emerging trends in bioreactor research, including techno-economics and life cycle assessment perspectives, both key considerations in making the anaerobic-digestion process technically feasible, economically viable and environmentally sustainable. The book is divided into three sections, with an introductory chapter on the impact of COVID-19 on existing practices of waste and resource management. Sections cover advances in bioreactor development for enhanced valorization of waste, the techno-economics of the different bioreactor systems, the life cycle assessment of bioreactors, their methodological challenges and future perspectives. Providing a holistic overview of bioreactors and taking into account recent trends in their design, the chapters also highlight the advances needed to manage COVID-19 waste in a sustainable manner. With contributions from leading experts in bioreactor and life cycle assessment, this book will be an invaluable reference source for academics working on anaerobic digesters and energy sustainability, as well as for research and development professionals in the renewable energy industry, and scientists and engineers working on clean and efficient energy generation from wastes. Reinforces our understanding of the basic concepts and applications of bioreactors Includes a comprehensive evaluation of "Techno-economics” and "Environmental impact analysis” through a life cycle assessment approach Covers bioreactor advancements and a prognosis for the maximum utilization of waste for the increase transformation of waste to wealth Enables the broad range spectrum of potential technological and environmental impacts occurring across product generation
