Residues from agriculture and the nutrition encompass many and sundry wastes, in overall accounting for over 250 million tonnes of waste in step with 12 months within the united kingdom on my own. Biotechnological processing of those residues might permit those waste items for use as a source, with great power. an intensive diversity of invaluable and usable items will be recovered from what was once formerly thought of waste: together with fuels, feeds and pharmaceutical items. during this manner Biotechnology can provide many attainable possible choices to the disposal of agricultural waste, generating numerous new items within the process.


This booklet offers up to date info on a biotechnology technique for the utilisation of agro-industrial residues, providing chapters with specific info on fabrics and bioconversion expertise to procure items of financial value:




  • The creation of business items utilizing agro-industrial residues as substrates



  • The biotechnological strength of agro-industrial residues for bioprocesses



  • Enzymes degrading agro-industrial residues and their production



  • Bioconversion of agro-industrial residues.


Written by way of specialists in Biotechnological processing of Agro-Industrial Residues, this e-book will offer worthy details for tutorial researchers and scientists operating in biotechnology, waste administration, agriculture and the meals industry.
