In more and more industrial sectors, companies are becoming aware of the importance of sustainable development and of the great potential of biotechnology. Biotechnology can help improve the environmental friendliness of industrial activities and lower both capital expenditure and operating costs. It can also help reduce raw material and energy inputs and waste. This volume brings together for the first time a broad collection of case studies on biotechnology applications in industrial processes and subjects them to detailed analysis in order to tease out essential lessons for industrial managers and for government policy makers. It will encourage the former and provide the latter with basic materials for programme development. Case Studies include: — Manufacture of Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) (Hoffmann La-Roche, Germany) — Production of 7-Amino-cephalosporanic Acid (Biochemie, Germany/Austria) — Biotechnological Production of the Antibiotic Cephalexin (DSM, Netherlands) — Bioprocesses for the Manufacture of Amino Acids (Tanabe, Japan) — Manufacture of S-Chloropropionic Acid (Avecia, United Kingdom) — Enzymatic Production of Acrylamide (Mitsubishi Rayon, Japan) — Enzymatic Synthesis of Acrylic Acid (Ciba, United Kingdom) — Enzyme-Catalysed Synthesis of Polyesters (Baxenden, United Kingdom) — Polymers from Renewable Resources (Cargill Dow, United States) — A Vegetable Oil Degumming Enzyme (Cereol, Germany) — Water Recovery in a Vegetable-processing Company (Pasfrost, Netherlands) — Removal of Bleach Residues in Textile Finishing (Windel, Germany) — Enzymatic Pulp Bleaching Process (Leykam, Austria) — Use of Xylanase as a Pulp Brightener (Domtar, Canada) — A Life Cycle Assessment on Enzyme Bleaching of Wood Pulp (ICPET, Canada) — On-site Production of Xylanase (Oji Paper, Japan) — A Gypsum-free Zinc Refinery (Budel Zink, Netherlands) — Copper Bioleaching Technology (Billiton, South Africa) — Renewable Fuels – Ethanol from Biomass (Iogen, Canada) — The Application of LCA Software to Bioethanol Fuel (ICPET, Canada) — Use of Enzymes in Oil-well Completion (M-I, BP Exploration, United Kingdom
