About the book

Description

Advances in Yeast Biotechnology for Biofuels and Sustainability: Value-Added Products and Environmental Remediation Applications showcases the uses for engineered yeast in environmental applications, especially as an innovative source of biofuels. Beginning with a thorough review of recent advances and future potential for yeast biotechnology, the book proceeds to outline several options for biofuels, including lignocellulosic biofuels and alternative feedstock production through hydrolysis and alternative value-added products, including industrial acids and bioplastics and applications in agriculture and environmental remediation. Placing case studies at the center of each chapter, this book presents a future-focused perspective on the potential of yeast biotechnologies to support sustainability.
