Description

This book covers the nanobiocatalysis for biofuels production such as advances in nanoscaffolds design (nanomaterials support) for immobilizing bioenergy producing enzymes (nanobiocatalyst system), recent trends in biomass processing (untreated/treated agriculture and food waste, grasses, algal etc) using advanced nanobiocatalysts for biofuels production, scale up study in bioenergy production using nanomaterials immobilized enzymes and biofuel harvesting using nanomaterials. It is a highly useful resource for a broad readership including chemical engineers, microbiologists, biotechnologists, agricultural engineers, nanotechnologists, and policy makers.

Table of Contents

Nanobiocatalysis for biofuels production: Introduction, strategy, applications in biofuels production. Nanobiocatalysis methodologies and design: Advances in nanoscaffolds design (nanomaterials support) for immobilizing bioenergy producing enzymes (nanobiocatalyst system) such as cellulases, glucosidases, xylanases, lignases, lipases etc. Nanobiotechnological routes for biomass/waste processing: Recent trends in biomass processing (untreated/treated agriculture and food waste, grasses, algal etc) using advanced nanomaterial immobilized enzymes for biofuels production. Scale up study: Biofuels production using nanomaterials immobilized enzymes at commercial level. Biofuel harvesting: Biofuel harvesting using nanostructured materials.
