Algal Bioprocess Engineering
Bioengineered is announcing a Call for Papers for a forthcoming issue on “Algal Bioprocess Engineering”
Algae has emerged into the lime light owing to its capability to produce numerous consumer goods. The conversion of algae to biofuel and bioproducts are acclaimed as a green solution for as they are a sustainable feedstock that can elevate various problems. Algae also contain high-value products like carotenoids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids. The production process of algal biorefinery is moderately economically feasible and its market is improving. In recent years, there have been tremendous research efforts on bioprocessing techniques aimed at improving the technical and economic feasibility of bioproducts and biofuels production from various sources. The development of these groundbreaking and resourceful bioprocesses will open the door to potential enhanced productivity from renewable sources such as algae, which will contribute greatly to bioenergy and biomolecules production. This special issue invites original research papers and reviews that highlight the recent innovative developments of algal bioprocess engineering, which includes upstream bioprocessing, bioprocess engineering design, and downstream bioprocessing of algal products.
The special issue aims at providing a platform to showcase the recent and advance bioprocesses for algal biorefinery. The key features of this Special Issue are to generate research on the integrated biological and environmental processes that are particularly useful for production of biofuels and bioproducts from algal biomass.
Areas of interest include:
- Advance bioprocessing techniques
- Efficient biomass conversion and biorefinery
- Bioprocess engineering design on algal biorefinery
- Integrated algae bioprocess engineering
- Upstream and downstream bioprocess engineering
Submissions should be made online at https://rp.tandfonline.com/submission/create?journalCode=KBIE by 30th September 2019.
