About this book


In Biotechnology for Fuels and Chemicals: The Twenty-Fourth Symposium, leading US and international researchers from academia, industry, and government present state-of-the-art research on how biotechnology is being used to produce high-volume, low-price products from renewable resources, as well as to improve the environment. The focus of this symposium was on bioprocessing from multidisciplinary perspectives. Session topics include advanced feedstock production and processing, enzyme and microbial biocatalysts, bioprocess research and development, opportunities in biorefineries, and commercialization of biobased products. This symposium was particularly exciting because of the projects and concepts that were being commercialized on a large scale for lactic acid, propanedol, and ethanol.
Cutting-edge and authoritative, Biotechnology for Fuels and Chemicals: The Twenty-Fourth Symposium provides an excellent overview of current research and development in the production of commodity fuels and chemicals via biological transformation.
