Green Sustainable Process for Chemical and Environmental Engineering and Science: Microbially-Derived Biosurfactants for Improving Sustainability in Industry explores the role biosurfactants may play in providing more sustainable, environmentally benign, and economically efficient solutions for mitigating challenges experienced in the industrial sector. Sections cover an introduction to their production and review their application across a broad range of industry applications, from polymer and biofuel production to lubrification and corrosion protection. Drawing on the knowledge of its expert team of global contributors, the book provides useful insights for all those currently or potentially interested in developing or applying biosurfactants in their own work.
As awareness and efforts to develop greener products and processes continue to grow in the chemistry community, biosurfactants are garnering much attention for the potential roles they can play, both in reducing the use and production of more toxic products and as tools for addressing existing problems.
- Highlights effective bioprocessing techniques, bioprocessing, agrowaste, and factors affecting production
- Reflects on differing strains of fungi, bacteria, actinomycetes and yeast, and reviews genetic modification of such strains for enhanced biosurfactant production
- Explores the use of biosurfactants across a broad range of industrial applications
Graduates, post-graduates and researchers across both academia and industry interested in developing and/or applying biosurfactants, including chemical engineers, green/ analytical/ environmental chemists, sustainability researchers, and environmental scientists; researchers in colloid science, surfactant science, physico-chemists, materials scientists and microbiologists
