Current Developments in Biotechnology and Bioengineering: Bioprocesses, Bioreactors and Controlsprovides extensive coverage of new developments, state-of-the-art technologies, and potential future trends, reviewing industrial biotechnology and bioengineering practices that facilitate and enhance the transition of processes from lab to plant scale, which is becoming increasingly important as such transitions continue to grow in frequency.

Focusing on industrial bioprocesses, bioreactors for bioprocesses, and controls for bioprocesses, this title reviews industrial practice to identify bottlenecks and propose solutions, highlighting that the optimal control of a bioprocess involves not only maximization of product yield, but also taking into account parameters such as quality assurance and environmental aspects.

  • Describes industrial bioprocesses based on the reaction media
  • Lists the type of bioreactors used for a specific bioprocess/application
  • Outlines the principles of control systems in various bioprocesses
Professor Christian Larroche is a graduate in Biochemical Engineering from the INSA, Toulouse, (1979), Docteur-Ingénieur in Organic Chemistry from Paul Sabatier Toulouse 3 University (1982), and Docteur ès Sciences (Ph D) in Biochemical Engineering from Blaise Pascal University (1990). He has strong research interest in the area of app...
