Abstract

Great emphasis has recently been given to the environmental impacts caused by chemical surfactants due to their toxicity and difficulty in being degraded. Increasing environmental concerns, the advance in biotechnology and the emergence of more stringent laws have led to biosurfactants being a serious alternative to the chemical surfactants available on the market. Although biosurfactants have promising use in bioremediation processes, their industrial scale production is currently difficult due to high raw-material costs, high processing costs and low manufacturing output. As a result, the current research challenges are to increase the yield and to reduce the cost of raw materials.
