|Description||Bioprocess-2016 is the learning of how microorganisms can used to produce biological products. Bioprocess engineering is the alteration or application of renewable materials to generate value-added products. It encompasses discovery, research, development and the manufacturing and commercialization of products. Products developed include: fuels, food, feed, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and a multitude of value-added biomaterials found in and used by all industries. It is derived from numerous sources, including the by-products from the timber industry, agricultural crops, raw material from the forest, major parts of household waste and wood. As an energy source, biomass can either be used directly via combustion to produce heat, or indirectly after converting it to various forms of biofuel. Conversion of biomass to biofuel can be achieved by different methods which are broadly classified into thermal, chemical, and biochemical methods.
