Developments in gene expression, protein engineering, and cell fusion have significantly improved product development in biochemical industries. This book discusses principles of chemical reaction engineering in detail, enhancing the understanding of biochemical engineering. It comprehensively covers all aspects of the applications of bioprocesses, such as mass and energy balances, reaction theory using both chemical and enzymatic reactions, microbial cell growth kinetics, transport phenomena, different control systems used in the fermentation industry, case studies of some industrial fermentation processes, different downstream processes, and effluent treatment. It mathematically analyzes the processes in simplified forms, understandable by most of the readers. It has a large number of problems, along with solutions, that will help the readers in applying the acquired knowledge in designing bioreactors. The book is useful for graduate-level and senior students of biotechnology and those pursuing courses in food and environmental engineering.
