Summary:
This welcome new edition covers bioprocess engineering principles for the reader with a limited engineering background. It explains process analysis from an engineering point of view, using worked examples and problems that relate to biological systems. Application of engineering concepts is illustrated in areas of modern biotechnology such as recombinant protein production, bioremediation, biofuels, drug development, and tissue engineering, as well as microbial fermentation. The main sub-disciplines within the engineering curriculum are all covered; Material and Energy Balances, Transport Processes, Reactions and Reactor Engineering. With new and expanded material, Doran's textbook remains the book of choice for students seeking to move into bioprocess engineering.
