About this book


This book covers the current states of microbial and related technologies that have been developed for the efficient production of chemicals, fuels and materials by integrating strain and enzyme development, fermentation processes, and downstream processes. 
The book also covers how microbes and microbial products can be employed to facilitate petroleum recovery. Global consequences of bio-based production of chemicals, fuels and materials are also discussed with insights.


Microorganism Fuel Metabolic Engineering Fermentation Biorefinery Bioconversion Bio-based production of fuels Chemicals production from lipid Synthetic biology for chemicals and fuels
