  • About the Author

The apprehensions relating to global warming, climate change and increasing energy demands have led to significant research for the development of sustainable energy and products from biomass by utilizing modern biotechnological tools. This book is an innovative collection of 14 chapters broadly focussing on biofuels, biomaterials, biopolymers and other industrially relevant commodities produced from agricultural biomass, forest residues, algae, food processing wastes and other biogenic refuse.

The book aims to serve as a reference book for academic and industrial researchers in finding new pathways to link food security and energy demands with the help of novel biotechnological interventions. This book highlights state-of-the-art aspects based on biotechnology involved in transportation sector, food industry, agriculture, biorefining and material science.
