The current textual content is an entire revision of the 2d version from 2003 of the publication with a similar identify. In attractiveness of the short speed at which biotechnology is relocating now we have rewritten a number of chapters to incorporate new medical development within the box from 2000 to 2010. extra very important we've replaced the focal point of the ebook to aid its use, not just in universities, but in addition as a consultant to layout new methods and gear within the bio-industry. a brand new bankruptcy has been incorporated at the customers of the bio-refinery to interchange a few of the oil- and gasoline dependent methods for construction of specifically bulk chemical substances. This bankruptcy additionally serves to make scholars in Chemical Engineering and within the Bio-Sciences captivated with the total learn box. As in prior variations we are hoping that the publication can be utilized as textbook for periods, even on the undergraduate point, the place chemical engineering scholars come to paintings part by way of aspect with scholars from biochemistry and microbiology. to aid the chemical engineering scholars bankruptcy 1 incorporates a short evaluation of an important components of microbial metabolism. In our opinion this assessment is enough to comprehend microbial body structure at a sufficiently excessive point to benefit from the remainder of the ebook. Likewise the bio-students are not beaten by way of arithmetic, yet because the aim of the publication is to educate quantitative procedure research and procedure layout at a hands-on point a few arithmetic and version research is required. we are hoping that the approximately a hundred particular examples and textual content notes, including many instructive difficulties should be enough to demonstrate how version research is used, additionally in Bio-reaction Engineering.

After esterification with aliphatic alcohols the fatty acids are used as biodiesel while the byproduct, glycerol has a great potential as a building block. 1 The Biorefinery 15 Glycerol will become an attractive byproduct from biodiesel production. Among the many promising processes in which glycerol is the raw material one can mention a process in which two enzymes are used. In a suitable membrane reactor construction which allows the two enzymes to be separated, 2 mol of glycerol can be converted to 1 mol of 1,3-propane diol and 1 mol of dihydroxy acetone (CH2OH–CO–CH2OH).
