Description

New and Future Developments in Microbial Biotechnology and Bioengineering: Recent Advances in Application of Fungi and Fungal Metabolites: Environmental and Industrial Aspects provides a comprehensive overview of recent development and applied aspects of fungi and its metabolites in environmental and industrial settings. Fungi and fungal metabolites have great prospects for developing new products in a wide range of sectors. Many fungal metabolites are environmentally friendly, clean, non‐toxic agents used for environmental management practices. This book offers a systems approach and provides a means to share the latest developments and advances about the exploitation of fungal products, including their vide uses in the field of environment and industry.

Key Features

  • Introduces the aspects and advances of fungi and fungal metabolites in environmental and industry perspectives
  • Discusses the potential of fungi and its metabolites in environmental management
  • Includes a description of traditional uses and the modern practices of harnessing the potential of fungi and its metabolites in solving environment issues
  • Provides details about usage of fungi and its metabolites for environmental management and industrial purposes

Readership

Researchers at universities, scientists and students, industries, and government agencies interested in bioprocess engineering/microbial biotechnology, agriculture, food producing, biomedicine, drug manufacture and all disciplines related to microbial biotechnology
