In Biotechnology for Fuels and Chemicals, leading researchers from academia, industry, and government offer surveys and reviews of their cutting-edge research and latest applications in the production of fuels and chemicals through biotechnology. The book's focus is on how best to improve and optimize these technologies and their economics to produce the fuels and chemicals so vital to many industrial sectors. Biotechnology for Fuels and Chemicals isbased on major new studies presented at the 20th Symposium, held in Gatlinburg, TN, May 3-7, 1998, covers an impressively wide range of topics, including new fuel supplies, the processing of feedstocks, and applied biological and bioprocessing research. Also discussed is work on emerging technologies for industrial chemicals, bioprocessing evaluation and confirmation, enzymatic processes and enzyme production, bioconversion, novel plants, separation, economics, and scaleup issues. The conference demonstrated once again its signal success in bringing basic research productively to bear on industrial bioprocessing for both fuels and chemicals.
