Biofuel Cells and Energy Generation analyzes the current state-of-the-art and offers solutions to key challenges in developing carbohydrate-based biofuel cell technology. The book provides a critical review of biofuel cell technology, including principles, components, applications, obstacles, and prospects, and assesses the economic, safety, health, and environmental implications. Sections focus on the diversity of biomass resources, the fundamental characteristics of biomass, the major effects of biomass composition variations on biofuel cell technology, and a thorough review of the research literature on approaches for decreasing the detrimental impacts of biomass variability on fuel cells.

In addition, a comprehensive examination of biofuel cell technology's current state and applications is presented that is supported by an explanation of the fundamentals, concepts, mechanisms, characteristics, optimal parameters, analytical characterization techniques, diverse types, all-category materials, catalysts, engineering designs, implantable biofuel cells, applications, and critical criteria. A variety of applications are addressed, including power implanted devices in biomedical applications, biosensors for smart communities, and nanomaterials for biofuel cells, among others. For each application, unresolved issues are identified, and solutions proposed.
