    • Provides a comprehensive overview of bioprocesses that apply to day-to-day living.
    • Is learner-centered, providing detailed diagrams for easy understanding.
    • Explores the importance of biocatalysts and their applications to the food industry, as well as bioplastics production.
    • Examines the unique capabilities of bioprocess engineering and its ability to treat various pollutants.


    This book deals with bioprocess engineering, which encompasses the design and development of equipment and processes for the manufacturing of products such as food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, polymers and paper from biological materials. It also deals with studying various biotechnological processes used in industries for large scale production of biological products, for the optimization of yield. This work also incorporates significant treatment on biocatalysts and their applications in food industry, bioplastics production, conversion of agro waste and the importance of biotechnology in bioprocessing. This is coupled with pertinent information related to environmental contaminants.
