Valorization of Biomass to Bioproducts: Biochemicals and Biomaterials discusses the-innovation and blueprint of biochemical extraction processes and the ideal utilization of biochemicals that help form the basis of green extraction to produce biochemicals from biomass. The book comprises a rising arena of research focused on designing novel, environmentally-friendly, naturally-derived and tenable biochemicals from biomass that serve several biosustainable purposes. Due to increasing demand in chemical and biochemical products, and to minimize industrial space, there is an increased need to recycle wastes and design cost-effective chemical and biochemical units. As such, knowledge on the recovery of biochemicals, bioconversions and extraction technologies is essential.
