Book Description :

The major issues relating to environmental sustainability such as a heavy dependency on fossil fuels, increased greenhouse gas emissions, pollution, global warming and climate change have prompted many efforts around the globe to seek alternative energy sources that have negligible environmental impacts and societal benefits. There is an immense interest in biofuels research throughout the world owing to its massive potential to address environmental concerns. Biofuels have the capacity to supplement current and future energy demands through being blended with fossil fuels or even replacing them completely as drop-in fuels in automobiles as well as for heating and the power industries. Waste biomass, primarily lignocellulosic biomass (e.g. agricultural crop residues, forestry biomass and energy crops) and microalgae can act as some inexpensive renewable bioresources for the production of biofuels and biochemicals. The prime focus of Bioprocessing of Biofuels is to shed light on this significant process, especially through microbial conversion technologies to recover and transform the inedible polysaccharides into hydrocarbon biofuels and bioenergy. The book offers introductory coverage of the most crucial topics as follows: A systematic overview of the state-of-the-art in the production and utilization of biofuels Categorical bioprospecting of bioresources for biofuel production Biomass pretreatment and enzymatic saccharification Bioconversion of waste biomass and algae to liquid and gaseous biofuels New developments in microbial fuel-cell technologies Bioprocessing of Biofuels unites topics related to the cutting-edge applications of bioresources and green technologies to reinvigorate biorefineries, positioning them within a competitive energy market.

Book Description :

Lignocellulose represents an abundant, renewable resource for the production of liquid transportation fuels to fulfill the energy demand of a growing, developing global population. However, the recalcitrant nature of the biomaterial has perplexed scientists for decades; lignocellulosic fuels still cost two to five times more to produce than their petroleum-derived counterparts. A novel class of bioprocess designs are necessary to overcome the costs associated with conversion of this obstinate feedstock. An intensified processing scheme, termed consolidated bioprocessing, was touted as an economically feasible bioprocessing strategy where consolidation of processing steps was thought to enhance both process and economic efficiencies. Yet no single organism has been discovered or engineered that is capable of efficient consolidated bioprocessing. On the other hand, nature executes what may be the ultimate consolidated bioprocess through conversion of plant material to carbon dioxide and methane as part of the global carbon cycle. The concerted action of numerous naturally-occurring microorganisms overcomes many of the issues encountered in industrial, single-organism lignocellulose bioprocessing. In this dissertation, based on a nature-inspired design, a two-member microbial consortium was developed for the conversion of cellulose to fuel. Cooperation is induced between the cellulolytic, anaerobic bacterium Clostridium phytofermentans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae via oxygen diffusion, controlling consortium populations and promoting fuel production. S. cerevisiae consumes oxygen to protect C. phytofermentans which in return degrades cellulose providing soluble carbon for the yeast. This symbiotic design improves ethanol and/or hydrocarbon production from purified cellulose over two-fold. Detailed analyses of C. phytofermentans biofilm formation and fermentation characteristics revealed that glucose and ethanol are robust inhibitors of C. phytofermentans surface attachment and growth, respectively. Ethanol tolerance was improved via strain evolution and metabolic engineering was applied to overcome an adaptive reduction in ethanol yield. Finally, a comprehensive mathematical framework was developed to model the consortium and provide insight into the intricate cooperation toward improving system productivity. In summary, inspired by naturally occurring microbial ecosystems, this dissertation describes the application of scientific and engineering principles to improve the viability of microbial consortia for industrial-scale conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to fuel.

Book Description :

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject Medicine - Public Health, grade: 1, Egerton University, language: English, abstract: For centuries, fermentation has been extensively applied in the production of distinct substances that remain highly beneficial to industries and people, with its increasing techniques gaining immense significance due to their environmental and economic benefits. According to recent studies, solid state fermentation is considered as the cheapest and environmentally responsive approach for the production of value-added industrial products, for example, enzymes biofuels and even nutrient enriched animal feeds. Solid state fermentation may be described as the growth and/or cultivation of micro-organisms under controlled conditions without the presence of free liquid for desired products development. It is an ancient technique that utilizes solid substrates such as bagasse, paper pulp and bran. A key benefit of using such substrates is that waste substances that are rich in nutrients can be recycled as substrates, and due to the slow and steady substrate utilization, the substrate may be used for long fermentation periods. As a result, this technique sustains controlled nutrients release. Significantly, solid-state fermentation technique works best in techniques that involve fungi as well as micro-organisms requiring less moisture content since the moisture required for the growth of microbes exists in absorbed states or in composite with solid matrix. However, even though this technique has diverse advantages, especially compared with submerged fermentation technique, there are certain processes in which SSF may not be used, for example, in bacterial fermentation or in processes that involve organisms requiring high water activity. The main aim of this paper is, thus, describing solid-state fermentation as a technique for the production of bioactive compounds.
