By Michael E. Himmel (auth.), Jonathan R. Mielenz, K. Thomas Klasson, William S. Adney, James D. McMillan (eds.)

In Biotechnology for Fuels and chemical compounds: The Twenty-Eighth Symposium, prime US and overseas researchers from academia, undefined, and govt trade state of the art technical details and replace present developments within the improvement and alertness of biotechnology for sustainable creation of fuels and chemical compounds. This symposium emphasizes advances in biotechnology to provide high-volume, low-price items from renewable assets, whereas bettering the surroundings. the most important parts of curiosity comprise complicated feedstock creation and processing, enzymatic and microbial biocatalysis, bioprocess learn and improvement, possibilities in biorefineries, and commercialization of biobased items. overseas and family development on generating liquid biofuels, specially ethanol and biodiesel, is highlighted, and similar issues, together with bioseparations and optimum integration of biochemical and thermochemical conversion applied sciences, are featured.

Forward-looking and authoritative, Biotechnology for Fuels and chemical substances: The Twenty-Eighth Symposium offers an illuminating assessment of present examine and improvement within the creation of commodity fuels and chemical substances from renewable biomass assets through biochemical and thermochemical routes.
