Industrial Biotechnology

5. Industrial Biotechnology
Industrial biotechnology is the application of biotechnology for industrial purposes, including manufacturing, alternatives energy and biomaterials. This field is a main area of research in the commercialization development of biotechnology products and industrial bioprocesses, using enzymes and biological cells (micro-organism, plant and animal) or their physiological bioprocesses. Industrial biotechnology area is making an increasing impact in the chemical sector, enabling both the conversion of renewable resources, such as celluloses, starches, sugars and vegetable oils, and the more efficient conversion of conventional raw materials using biotechnological processes (including bio-catalysis) into a wide variety of chemical substances and biotechnology products, many of which cannot be made directly by synthetic routes. These bio-products include fine and bulk chemicals, pharmaceuticals, bio-colorants, solvents, bio-plastics, vitamins, food additives, bio-pesticides and liquid biofuels such as bioethanol and biodiesel.
