This work provides comprehensive coverage of modern biochemical engineering, detailing the basic concepts underlying the behaviour of bioprocesses as well as advances in bioprocess and biochemical engineering science. It includes discussions of topics such as enzyme kinetics and biocatalysis, microbial growth and product formation, bioreactor design, transport in bioreactors, bioproduct recovery and bioprocess economics and design. A solutions manual is available to instructors only.

". . .and from professors . . .a very good textbook. "
---Horacio A. Duarte, Dept. of Chemical Engineering, Texas A&M University, Kingsville
". . .an excellent book that combines both theoretical and applied aspects of Biochemical Engineering. I plan to use it as a required textbook in three undergraduate and one graduate course. "
---A. Margaritis, Professor and Chairman, Dept. of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, The University of Western Ontario, Canada
". . .a well-written textbook...that will be very effective for classroom teaching. "
---Duane F. Bruley, Dept. of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, University of Maryland, Baltimore
"An excellent book for graduate courses. "
---Juan Hong, Dept. of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, University of California at Irvine
". . .comprehensive and covers many of the fundamental aspects of biochemical engineering in depth. By leaving biology concepts to other texts, Blanch and Clark provide more text space to chemical engineering material. The book is especially useful in the areas of enzyme catalysis and separations, not surprising since these are the specialties of the authors. "
