The CRC Press Taylor & Francis group published the book “Bioconversion of Wastes to Value-added Products” under the leadership of the famous biochemist and nutritionist Octavio Paredes-López in collaboration with Ukrainian scientists Olena Stabnikova, Oleksandr Shevchenko and Viktor Stabnikov.
Nataliia Golub, the member of the Editorial Council of the Innovative Biosystems and Bioengineering, is the author of the chaper dedicated to biohydrogen production from cellulose-containing wastes.
Agricultural and food processing organic wastes contain valuable substances. Some of these organic wastes can be used as an additional source of important components to increase nutritional properties of traditional food products, others can be converted into energetic materials such as alcohol, bioethanol, hydrogen, and biogas. Application of a variety of wastes from industry, agriculture and food processing to turn them into valuable products pursues two goals at the same time, namely, the systematic and economically feasible use of the existing potential of useful products from non-recyclable wastes, as well as the creation of environmentally friendly technologies that protect the environment from potential contaminants.
This publication covers application of organic wastes as additives to enhance nutritional value of food, bioconversion of solid and liquid wastes into energy, such as biogas and hydrogen, and biotransformation of industrial and food processing wastes into biotechnological products. At the end, in a chapter, design, construction and testing of biosensors for food control are described in details.
The book covers the technological approaches of conversion of different organic wastes into valuable products and demonstrates real developments in organic waste utilization, and thus helping the students, lecturers, researchers, and engineers of food industry and environmental engineering by providing new knowledge on sustainable use of waste.
Keys Features includes:
– description of new technologies for utilization of wastes from oil production
