Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

This course explains the industrial chemical and chemical engineering  aspects of processes for the biomass exploitation and for all the  raw materials suitable for environment protection and safety. The constrain of a chemical production independent from fossil resources, necessitates the use of renewable raw materials with updated  technologies and, today, a continuous applied and basic research. The industrial aspects of the chemistry based on renewable materials are the object of the teaching program.

The course aims to analyze the process and plant aspects using the chemical engineering knowledges used in the industrial chemistry course on the oil based raw material. The aspects related to bio based substances will be explained taking account of the more recent innovations in the field. Economic aspect and ambient related issues will be faced.


Risultati di apprendimento attesi

D1: the student have to know and understand the energy markets and their relation with the chemical market, know and discuss about  the different technologies to chemically transform natural and natural related substances from the qualitative and quantitative point of view.

 
D2- The student should arrive to apply the acquired knowledges to new processes

 

 


Argomenti trattati

 

The arguments are exposed following the typical scheme of a chemical industry course (product relevance, market, process and plant) and are listed in the following

1.Energy resources. After the comparison between the fossil and the renewable energy sources attention is pointed on the use of the green sources for chemicals and fuels.

2.Oleochemistry. The biomass properties have been firstly described. Then the oleo chemistry sector is examined with attention on the chemical transformations of vegetable and animal oils. Fuel (biodiesel)can be obtained thought trans-esterification reaction, esterification reaction with different technologies. The hydrogenation reaction is described in the food sector. A great part is dedicated to the catalysis aspects.

3. Biomass. The argument occupies a large, central in the course, chapter. It concern the biomass conversion processes. Existing processes and prospective forecast from research data for processes and plants. The synergic mix of the known unit operations and new advanced technologies are explored.

4.Biomass derivatives. Using industrial chemistry items and materials science ones, materials derivate from biomass (cellulose as first) for many industrial sectors are illustrated (pharma sector, food, surfactant, additives etc.)  

5. Biopolymer and paper. In the biomass conversion sector biopolymers are taken under consideration. PLA, PHB as major product obtained by chemical and fermentative processes.

6. Green solvent. The great importance of green solvent is due to their large use. The emission of volatile organic compounds is largely due to the solvent and many directives limit their use. New solvent are needed. This chapter is dedicated to new types of green solvent.


Prerequisiti

Chemistry, organic and inorganic basic aspects. Thermodinamic and kinetic aspects.


Modalità di valutazione

Oral exams, with a first part dedicated to the explanation of a scientific paper pre-authorized by the teacher.

The student will be required to make a classroom presentation on a specific aspects of renewable raw material trasformation, going more deep inside the problem and using the knowledges given in the course by the teacher.
