- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after December 15, 2020
The need for exploration, conservation, and sustainable utilization of bioresources is undeniable for the survival and growth of mankind. This new book throws light on new and recent research on and development of effective strategies for sustainable utilization of bioresources using modern tools and techniques to help meet this challenge.
Bioresource Utilization and Management: Applications in Therapeutics, Biofuels, Agriculture, and Environmental Science is divided into four sections that cover utilization of bioresources in therapeutics, in biofuel, in agriculture, and in environmental protection. Beginning with the diverse potential applications of bioresources in food, medicine, and cosmetics, the volume goes on to address the various different underutilized bioresources and their sustainable uses. It discusses important advances in biofuel and patents that highlight recent developments that address the energy crises and the continuously fluctuating cost of petroleum. It explores new energy renewable sources from bioresources and their sustainable utilization in the bioenergy and biofuel industry.
