Overview

Biochemical engineering focuses on the design and construction of unit processes that involve biological organisms or molecules. It is increasingly taught as a separate discipline and as a supplementary option to chemical or biological engineering due to the similarities in both the background subject curriculum and problem-solving techniques. Its applications are to be found in the food, feed, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and water treatment industries.
Written by renowned professors drawing on their experience gained in the world's most innovative biotechnology market, Japan, this advanced textbook provides an excellent and comprehensive introduction to the latest developments in the field.
