Book Description

This book will embrace the main advances achieved in the use of alternative raw materials for the production of the main commercial enzymes, such as amylase, lipases and proteases, among others, metabolites of great industrial relevance and with wide application for different commercial sectors.

This book is intended for Bioengineers, Biologist, Biochemist, Biotechnologists, microbiologists, food technologists, enzymologists, and related professionals/ researchers.

  • Explores recent advances in the valorization of agri-food waste into enzymes
  • Explores the main technological advances in the recovery of residues and their use for the production of enzymes
  • Provides technical concepts on the production of various enzymes of commercial interest
  • Presents the main classes of enzymes obtained from alternative raw materials
