Industrial and Environmental Biotechnology

Industrial biotechnology employs the application of biotechnology for sustainable processing and production of chemical products, therapeutics, industry chemicals and fuels. Biotechnological processing uses microorganisms or enzymes to produce products that are useful to a broad range of industrial sectors, including human and animal nutrition, energy, pulp and paper, textiles, chemical and pharmaceutical, materials and polymers. Ultimately, the success of industrial biotechnology depends on the economics of specific processes. Environmental biotechnology is the branch of biotechnology addressing environmental issues, such as renewable energy generation, removal of pollution, or biomass production, by exploiting biological processes. The advantages of biotechnological treatment of wastes include natural biodegradation of a variety of dangerous substances by microorganisms; availability of different biotechnological methods for complete detoxification of hazardous wastes; and variety of conditions suitable for biodegradation and bioremediation.
