Industrial Enzymes for Biofuels Production: Recent Updates and Future Trends focuses on to resolve existing bottlenecks in enzymes mediated biomass to biofuels production processes through updating recent scientific knowledge and technology developments. Enzymes used in industries for biomass to biofuels production process are the main rollback of this sustainable technology which is still far away from practical viability, the book provides low cost sustainable approaches to lower the cost of enzymes production following different approaches. The book is specifically focused on industrial aspects of enzymes used in biofuels production processes by presenting in depth study of existing issues related to practical viability and long-term sustainability. The book covers detailed discussions on market scenario of industrial enzymes used in biofuels production processes and compares them on both lab and industrial scale. Enzyme production, efficiency and stability is the focus point of this book targeted at lower cost scale. The book also helps to develop low cost green technologies for enzymes development in biofuels production at industrial ground.
- Includes recent update in the research area and technologies of industrial enzymes used in biofuels production process
- Describes various developed low cost technologies for enzyme production
- Explores different sustainable approaches currently appearing in the area to produce and use of these enzymes at economic cost for taking biomass to biofuels options at commercial scale
