    The goalThe aim of this course is that students acquire knowledge of the contemporay ans prospec technological processes for the production of energy on renewable biomass (production of bioethanol, biodiesel. methane, methanol and hydrogen).
    The outcomeStudents will acquire knowledge about the current processes of energy production on biomass, the techno-economical prinicples and criteria involved and will be able to determine which biomass is available and appropriate for the production of energy. They will also be able to make concept of the process for the production of energy based on various renewable biomass.
    Contents of lecturesThe course educates about the possibilities of the biomass utilization for the production of energy and about main technological processes for this purpose. Teaching units: Energy resources- current situation and prospectives; Bioethanol as a biofuel and the process technology; Biodiesel as a biofuel and the process technology; Hydrogen as an energy source and the process technology; Biogas-methane production. Techno-economical aspects of the energy production on biomass.
    Contents of exercisesThe course is based on lectures which also include calculations and experimental practice. ; The course encompasses teaching, LAB practice, calculation examples and seminars (study-research work). ;
