Biocatalysis in Oil Refining by M. M. Ramirez-Corredores
Book Description"Biocatalysis in Oil Refining" focuses on petroleum refining bioprocesses, establishing a connection between science and technology. The micro organisms and biomolecules examined for biocatalytic purposes for oil refining processes are thoroughly detailed. Terminology used by biologists, chemists and engineers is brought into a common language, aiding the understanding of complex biological-chemical-engineering issues. Problems to be addressed by the future R&D activities and by new technologies are described and summarized in the last chapter. It includes updated references. Studying bioprocessing problems, it looks at opportunities for improvements and technology developments.
