#291 - Environmental Biotechnology: Green Bioprocessing (15C14)
Bio-based processing provides an environmentally friendly route to produce value-added products from renewable resources. Papers are sought on fundamental and applied research toward conversion of waste streams to value-added products using biochemical or biologically-mediated processes, with the goal of reducing true process waste. Fundamental studies to characterize microbial growth and product formation kinetics, metabolic pathways, product selectivity, and process yield are of interest, as are those exploring enzyme-based processes. Waste streams may be from any industry, including agricultural, forest products, food, fuel, and chemical processing.
