Book Description

Edited to avoid duplication and favor comprehensiveness, 20 contributors detail the recovery, separation, and purification operations of bioprocess technology. Individual chapters in this classic yet still highly relevant work emphasize concepts that are becoming more and more important when applied to the large scale versions of techniques that are considered well established. Aside from fully discussing processes, Separation Processes in Biotechnology includes sections on concentration separation and operation, purification operations, and product release and recovery. It also discusses plant operation and equipment and delves into economic considerations
