With the high interest in renewable resources, the field of algal biotechnology has undergone a huge leap in importance in recent years. The book Microalgae Biotechnology - Integration and Economy treats integrated approaches to bring the high potential of microalgae into application, accelerate the development of really working production processes and put finally the products on the market. Close interaction of biology and process engineering becomes visible in the described processes. The big impact of microalgal biotechnology on our future society is outlined as a desirable consequence of scientific progress. This book will allow protagonists in academia and industry as well as decision makers in industry and politics to get a clear picture of current possibilities and future trends in microalgal biotechnology.
Molecular biologists and related scientists from academic and commercial contexts survey possible contributions that the many species of algae might make to solving some grave human problems. Their topics include Spirulina production in volcano lakes from natural resources to human welfare, algae for aquaculture and animal feed, screening and developing antiviral compound candidates from phototrophic microorganisms, natural drug discovery from microalgae, and trends driving microalgae-based fuels into economic production.
