ICEREGA’18 aims at gathering scientists and engineers from academia and industry to discuss the generation and applications in the broad field of renewable energy applications.

In arid lands limited amount of edible biomass sources are observed thus non-edible biomass which required less quantity of water are potential source for biofuel production. . Producing renewable energy locally can offer a viable alternative to many applications. Thus people can utilize the locally available renewable energy resources for a wide range of applications to improve the standard of living in these communities.

  • This special session is dedicated to biofuel production from biomass grown in arid lands. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Highly valuable hydrocarbons green fuels production.
  • Biodiesel production from waste biomass.
  • Waste biomass as source for renewable catalysts.
  • Power generations from biofuels.
  • Crops drying and food processing using renewable resources.
  • Biodigesters applications.
  • Fermentation
  • Hydrolysis
  • Algae biofuel

Keywords: Renewable Energy, Biofuel production, Biodiesel production, Green catalyst synthesis, Greenhouses, biodigesters, Fermentation, Hydrolysis, Algae biofuel
