In these days, renewable raw materials gain more importance since traditional raw such as crude oil are limited. Therefore, new processes based on renewable materials are targeted by intensive research. In this course, processes for the production of ethanol, buthanol or biogas are presented. In addition, cultivation of energy plants, pulping of biomass and resulting challenges for the chemical industry are discussed.
