A text to the advances and development of novel technologies in the production of high-value products from economically viable raw materials

Lignocellulosic Biorefining Technologiesis an essential guide to the most recent advances and developments of novel technologies in the production of various high-value products from economically viable raw materials. Written by a team of experts on the topic, the book covers important topics specifically on production of economical and sustainable products such as various biofuels, organic acids, enzymes, biopigments, biosurfactants, etc.

The book highlights the important aspects of lignocellulosic biorefining including structure, function, and chemical composition of the plant cell wall and reviews the details about the various components present in the lignocellulosic biomass and their characterizations. The authors explore the various approaches available for processing lignocellulosic biomass into second generation sugars and focus on the possibilities of utilization of lignocellulosic feedstocks for the production of biofuels and biochemicals. Each chapter includes a range of clear, informative tables and figures, and contains relevant references of published articles. This important text:

  • Provides cutting-edge information on the recent developments in lignocellulose biorefinery
  • Reviews production of various economically important and sustainable products, such as biofuels, organic acids, biopigments, and biosurfactants
  • Highlights several broad-ranging areas of recent advances in the utilization of a variety of lignocellulosic feedstocks
  • Provides a valuable, authoritative reference for anyone interested in the topic 

Written for post-graduate students and researchers in disciplines such as biotechnology, bioengineering, forestry, agriculture, and chemical industry, Lignocellulosic Biorefining Technologies is an authoritative and updated guide to the knowledge about various biorefining technologies.
