Biomaterials: Biological Production of Fuels and Chemicals

In times of declining fossil stocks, science and industry have to find alternative resources for the production of fuels and chemicals. Europe currently recycles less than one third of it’s waste. Biomass and food waste could be used as a renewable feedstock for valuable chemicals and fuels.¬†This book presents techniques for the utilization of biomass and waste as raw materials for the production of platform molecules, biopolymers, bioplastics, and bioethanol. Latest research results as well as industrial application thereof are discussed.

From the Table of Contents:

  • Matching the biomass to the bioproduct
  • Systems biology in biofuel
  • Utilization of food waste for fermentative hydrogen production
  • Biological routes to itaconic and succinic acids
