An Introduction:


Tapping into bio-resources by means of thermochemical & biochemical processes has attracted researchers; this broad area has given birth to concepts like biorefinery and biotechnology. Its scope includes biochemical & microbiological engineering, biocatalysis & biotransformation, biosynthesis & metabolic engineering, bioprocess & biosystem engineering, bioenergy and biorefineries, food, bioseparation & biopurification engineering, bioremediation, environmental biotechnology, etc.

It is needed to study the effective processes by which maximum benefit can be achieved by utilizing bio-resources preventing open burning and waste dumping. While there are several challenges which hinder the successful implementations, there is immense potential for these technologies for scale-up. Bioethanol and biodiesel are no longer a myth those inspire more research, discussion and policy implementation for successful conversion of waste to bioenergy and to value-added products from myth to reality.


Utilization of bio-resources is an essential reference source that discusses new technologies being used to tap these resources with innovative bioprocesses.  While highlighting the bioresources utilization and their conversion pathways for a sustainable future including study of food waste, resource recovery from organic fraction of MSW, hydrothermal carbonization, bioenergy production & blending, nano-additive, leaf litter biogas, dye adsorption in water treatment, composting, effective recycling of flower waste, enzyme activity of lipolytic bacteria, etc., this book is ideally designed for policymakers, legislators, waste company managers, environmentalists, students, researchers, academicians, and municipal planners seeking current research on the global bio-waste management problem.
