About this item
The past decade has witnessed unprecedented growth and development in biotechnology and bioengineering, positioning bio-economy as a major indicator of advancement. Providing extensive coverage of new developments, state-of-the-art technologies and potential future trends, Current Developments in Biotechnology and Bioengineering is a package of nine books that compile the latest ideas from across the entire arena of biotechnology and bioengineering.
This volume, Production, Isolation and Purification of Industrial Products, focuses on industrial biotechnology and bioengineering for the production of industrial products such as enzymes, organic acids, biopolymers and biosurfactants, and the processes for isolating and purifying them from a production medium. During the last few years, the tools of molecular biology, genetic and metabolic engineering have rendered tremendous improvements in the production of industrial products by fermentation. Structured by industrial product classifications, this book provides an overview of the current practise, status and future potential for the production of these agents, as well as reviewing the industrial scenario relating to their production.
- Provides information on industrial bioprocesses for the production of microbial products by fermentation
- Includes separation and purification processes of fermentation products
- Includes economic and feasibility assessments of the various processes and their scaling up
- Links biotechnology and bioengineering for industrial process development
