Biotechnology is an expansive field incorporating expertise in both the life science and engineering disciplines. In biotechnology, the scientist is concerned with developing the most favourable biocatalysts, while the engineer is directed towards process performance, defining conditions and strategies that will maximize the production potential of the biocatalyst. Increasingly, the synergistic effect of the contributions of engineering and life sciences is recognised as key to the translation of new bioproducts from the laboratory bench to commercial bioprocess. Fundamental to the successful realization of the bioprocess is a need for process engineers and life scientists competent in evaluating biological systems from a cross-disciplinary viewpoint. Bioprocess engineering aims to generate core competencies through an understanding of the complementary biotechnology disciplines and their interdependence, and an appreciation of the challenges associated with the application of engineering principles in a life science context. Initial chapters focus on the microbiology, biochemistry and molecular biology that underpin biocatalyst potential for product accumulation. The following chapters develop kinetic and mass transfer principles that quantify optimum process performance and scale up. The text is wide in scope, relating to bioprocesses using bacterial, fungal and enzymic biocatalysts, batch, fed-batch and continuous strategies and free and immobilised configurations. Details the application of chemical engineering principles for the development, design, operation and scale up of bioprocesses Details the knowledge in microbiology, biochemistry and molecular biology relevant to bioprocess design, operation and scale up Discusses the significance of these life sciences in defining optimum bioprocess performance

Bioprocess engineering employs microorganisms to produce biological products for medical and industrial applications. The book covers engineering tasks around the cultivation process in bioreactors including topics like media design, feeding strategies, or cell harvesting. All aspects are described from conceptual considerations to technical realization. It gives insight to students of technical biology, bioengineering, and biotechnology by detailed explanations, drawings, formulas, and example processes. In Bioprocess Engineering upstream, bioreaction, and downstream stages are closely linked to each other. From a biological point of view photo-biotechnology is in the centre of interest as well as processes, where the particulate properties play an important role. The main technical means are fermentation under highly controlled conditions, mathematical modelling of bioprocesses including measurement of intracellular compounds, as well as mechanical separation methods arising from downstream processing.

Biotechnology has been labelled as one of the key technologies of the last two decades of the 20th Century, offering boundless solutions to problems ranging from food and agricultural production to pharmaceutical and medical applications, as well as environmental and bioremediation problems. Biological processes, however, are complex and the prevailing mechanisms are either unknown or poorly understood. This means that adequate techniques for data acquisition and analysis, leading to appropriate modeling and simulation packages that can be superimposed on the engineering principles, need to be routine tools for future biotechnologists. The present volume presents a masterly summary of the most recent work in the field, covering: instrumentation systems; enzyme technology; environmental biotechnology; food applications; and metabolic engineering.
