Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The present text is a complete revision of the 2nd edition from 2003 of the book with the same title. In recognition of the fast pace at which biotechnology is moving we have rewritten several chapters to include new scientific progress in the field from 2000 to 2010.

More important we have changed the focus of the book to support its use, not only in universities, but also as a guide to design new processes and equipment in the bio-industry.

A new chapter has been included on the prospects of the bio-refinery to replace many of the oil- and gas based processes for production of especially bulk chemicals. This chapter also serves to make students in Chemical Engineering and in the Bio-Sciences enthusiastic about the whole research field.

As in previous editions we hope that the book can be used as textbook for classes, even at the undergraduate level, where chemical engineering students come to work side by side with students from biochemistry and microbiology.

To help the chemical engineering students Chapter 1 includes a brief review of the most important parts of microbial metabolism. In our opinion this review is sufficient to understand microbial physiology at a sufficiently high level to profit from the rest of the book. Likewise the bio-students will not be overwhelmed by mathematics, but since the objective of the book is to teach quantitative process analysis and process design at a hands-on level some mathematics and model analysis is needed. We hope that the about 100 detailed examples and text notes, together with many instructive problems will be sufficient to illustrate how model analysis is used, also in Bio-reaction Engineering.

Format: Hardcover
I am a postgraduate student in biochemical engineering and I am working on modelling of bioprocesses. I have come across this book a little while ago and it changed the course of studies in a very positive manner. The most important characteristic of this book is that it encompasess the complete spectrum of topics required to thoroughly understand the fundementals of bioprocesses. Consistant nomenclature and mathematical expressions used throughout the book helps the reader to grasp rather comlicated inter-relationships between relatively distant topics much easily. At times the book requires a somewhat competent background in biological sciences and engineering to fully digest everything offered but once the reader adapts to the authors' style the book becomes a very valuable reference.

Format: Hardcover
This book is an excellent book for graduate students in biochemical engineering or for students of chemical engineering. It describes models such as metabolic flux analysis and metabolic control analysis. Furthermore mass transfer in fermentors and modelling of fermentors is described in great detail. The book is rather heavy to digest, but when you are through it, it is invaluable.
