Biotechnology for Agro-Industrial Residues Utilisation: by Erick J. Vandamme (auth.), Poonam Singh nee’ Nigam, Ashok

By Erick J. Vandamme (auth.), Poonam Singh nee’ Nigam, Ashok Pandey (eds.)

Residues from agriculture and the foodstuff encompass many and sundry wastes, in overall accounting for over 250 million tonnes of waste consistent with yr within the united kingdom by myself. Biotechnological processing of those residues might let those waste items for use as a source, with super capability. an intensive variety of precious and usable items will be recovered from what was once formerly thought of waste: together with fuels, feeds and pharmaceutical items. during this means Biotechnology can provide many workable choices to the disposal of agricultural waste, generating numerous new items within the method.

This booklet offers updated info on a biotechnology technique for the utilisation of agro-industrial residues, providing chapters with special details on fabrics and bioconversion know-how to acquire items of financial significance:

  • The creation of commercial items utilizing agro-industrial residues as substrates
  • The biotechnological strength of agro-industrial residues for bioprocesses
  • Enzymes degrading agro-industrial residues and their production
  • Bioconversion of agro-industrial residues

Written by way of specialists in Biotechnological processing of Agro-Industrial Residues, this ebook will offer worthy details for educational researchers and scientists operating in biotechnology, waste administration, agriculture and the nutrition industry.

Singh nee’ Nigam, A. V. 2009 37 38 P. 1 Use of Agro-Wastes for Organic Acid Production Most of the chapters in this book include information on the variety of agricultural wastes, agro-industrial by-products and residues produced globally and the authors of some of these chapters also have presented data on the annual yield of these renewable resources. Hence, not to repeat this information again here, this chapter deals with the utilization of these bio-resources for organic acid production. Couto (2008) has recently published an article on the exploitation of large scale biological wastes for the production of value-added products.
