Description

Genetic and Metabolic Engineering for Improved Biofuel Production from Lignocellulosic Biomass describes the different aspects of biofuel production from lignocellulosic biomass. Each chapter presents different technological approaches for cost effective liquid biofuel production from agroresidues/biomass. Two chapters cover future direction and the possibilities of biomass-based biofuel production at the industrial level. The book provides a genetic and metabolic engineering approach for improved cellulase production and the potential of strains that can ferment both pentose and hexose sugars. The book also gives direction on how to overcome challenges for the further advancement of lignocellulosic biomass-based biofuel production.

Key Features

  • Covers genetic engineering approaches for higher cellulase production from fungi
  • Includes genetic and metabolic engineering approaches for development of potential pentose and hexose fermenting strain which can tolerate high ethanol and toxic phenolic compounds
  • Describe different bioreactors used in different steps of biomass-based biofuel production
  • Outlines future prospects and potential of biofuel production from lignocellulosic biomass

Readership

Students and researchers in the area of bioprocess engineering, renewable energy, chemical engineering, biotechnology, fermentation technology
