About this book

This work presents a comprehensive investigation of the most significant renewable hydrogen production processes. Technical, economic and ecological studies are described for the processes of steam reforming of ethanol, natural gas and biogas; water electrolysis with energy from renewable sources (wind power, photovoltaic and hydroelectric), and hydrogen production using algae. Aimed at mechanical and chemical engineering graduate students and researchers involved in environmental sciences, sustainable energy and bioenergy research, this book introduces readers to the latest developments in the field and provides essential reference material for future research. The book first presents a comprehensive literature review of the processes studied. Subsequently, it provides a technical report on assessing the energetic efficiency for each hydrogen production process, as well as an economic study of the respective hydrogen production costs. Lastly, the ecological efficiency of each process is addressed. Over the past few decades, the UNESP’s Group of Optimization of Energetic Systems, headed by Professor José Luz Silveira, has been pursuing research in the field of renewable energy generation. A major part of the group’s research focuses on the production of hydrogen as a fuel and its important contribution to mitigating the environmental impacts caused by pollutant emissions.

About the authors

Full Professor at the Energy Department of College of Engineering, at São Paulo State University (UNESP); coordinator of the graduate program on Alternative Energy of that institution; member of the coordination board of the Research Institute in Bioenergy (IPBEN) - UNESP and coordinator of the Group of Optimization of Energy Systems: Conservation and Generation (GOSE). He received his bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering at Federal University of Iatajubá and his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the Estate University of Campinas (UNICAMP). He has experience in Mechanical Engineering, focusing on thermodynamics and heat transfer, acting on the following subjects: cogeneration, thermoeconomics, fuel cells, thermal engineering and technology development of processes of biofuel production. He has many papers published on these topics in highly cited international journals.
