Bioprocessing of Renewable Resources to Commodity by Virendra S. Bisaria, Akihiko Kondo

By Virendra S. Bisaria, Akihiko Kondo

This e-book offers the imaginative and prescient of a profitable biorefinery—the lignocelluloic biomass should be successfully switched over to its constituent monomers, comprising often of sugars resembling glucose, xylose, mannose and arabinose. for that reason, the 1st a part of the e-book offers with facets an important for the pretreatment and hydrolysis of biomass to offer sugars in excessive yield, in addition to the overall facets of bioprocessing applied sciences as a way to let the advance of biorefineries via inputs of metabolic engineering, fermentation, downstream processing and formula. the second one a part of the e-book supplies the present prestige and destiny instructions of the organic methods for creation of ethanol (a biofuel in addition to a massive commodity uncooked material), solvents (butanol, isobutanol, butanediols, propanediols), natural acids (lactic acid, 3-hydroxy propionic acid, fumaric acid, succinic acid and adipic acid), and amino acid (glutamic acid). the industrial creation of a few of those commodity bioproducts within the close to destiny may have a miles attaining influence in knowing our objective of sustainable conversion of those renewable assets and understanding the idea that of biorefinery.
Suitable for researchers, practitioners, graduate scholars and experts in biochemical/ bioprocess engineering, commercial microbiology, bioprocess know-how, metabolic engineering, environmental technological know-how and effort, the booklet offers:
• Exemplifies the applying of metabolic engineering ways for improvement of microbial cellphone factories
• Provides a special standpoint to the concerning the medical difficulties and their attainable recommendations in creating a bioprocess paintings for advertisement creation of commodity bioproducts
• Discusses the processing of renewable assets, comparable to plant biomass, for  mass construction of commodity chemical substances and liquid fuels to satisfy our ever- expanding demands
• Encourages sustainable eco-friendly applied sciences for the usage of renewable resources
•  bargains well timed options to aid handle the strength challenge as non-renewable fossil oil will quickly be unavailable
