Description:
Fermentation and biological conversion processes are widely used in biotechnology, chemical, food, and pharmaceutical industries. This session will highlight recent advances in fermentation and biological conversion for production of bulk and fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and biofuels. Topics relevant to this session may include, but are not limited to: cell-free systems for biosynthesis; enzyme engineering for green chemistry; metabolic and cell engineering for improved fermentation and cell culture processes; novel bioreactors for fermentation, biocatalysis, and cell culture processes; integrated fermentation-separation processes; scale-up and scale-down technologies for process optimization; and engineering for sustainability.
