The book describes in detail the authors’ current understanding of the models that incorporate the concepts and techniques of synthetic chemistry, chemical engineering, synthetic biology and bioengineering. These include chemical engineering methods for green chemical production from sustainable bio-resources; using synthetic chemistry and kinetics of chemical reaction concepts in the construction of non-natural enzymes and bio-pathways, partial integration of bioconversion steps in chemical synthesis routes; integration of chemo-, bio- conversion steps in one system; microbial production of chemicals from economic chemo-resourced chemicals; and chemical production of value-added derivatives from bio-based amino acids. It provides a valuable reference source for laboratory and industrial professionals in a number of chemical and biological disciplines such as synthetic chemistry, synthetic biology, chemical engineering, biotechnology, microbiology, molecular biology, etc. Dr. Mo Xian is a Professor at Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Qingdao, China.

The book provides an introduction to the most important sustainable chemical processes for the production of fuels, base and bulk chemicals. Particular attention is paid to technical, economical and environmental aspects and to getting insight into the technical-scientific basis for these processes in the structure of the chemical industry, petroleum refining industry, the petrochemical industry and biochemical production processes. A more than timely approach to an established discipline.

This book is a collection of chapters concerning the use of biomass for the sustainable production of energy and chemicals–an important goal that will help decrease the production of greenhouse gases to help mitigate global warming, provide energy security in the face of dwindling petroleum reserves, improve balance of payment problems and spur local economic development. Clearly there are ways to save energy that need to be encouraged more. These include more use of energy sources such as, among others, manure in anaerobic digesters, waste wood in forests as fuel or feedstock for cellulosic ethanol, and conservation reserve program (CRP) land crops that are presently unused in the US. The use of biofuels is not new; Rudolf Diesel used peanut oil as fuel in the ?rst engines he developed (Chap. 8), and ethanol was used in the early 1900s in the US as automobile fuel [Songstad et al. (2009) Historical perspective of biofuels: learning from the past to rediscover the future. In Vitro Cell Dev Biol Plant 45:189–192). Brazil now produces enough sugar cane ethanol to make up about 50% of its transportation fuel needs (Chap. 4). The next big thing will be cellulosic ethanol. At present, there is also the use of Miscanthus x giganteous as fuel for power plants in the UK (Chap. 2), bagasse (sugar cane waste) to power sugar cane mills (Chap. 4), and waste wood and sawdust to power sawmills (Chap. 7).

There is an increasing challenge for chemical industry and research institutions to find cost-efficient and environmentally sound methods of converting natural resources into fuels chemicals and energy. Catalysts are essential to these processes and the Catalysis Specialist Periodical Report series serves to highlight major developments in this area. This series provides systematic and detailed reviews of topics of interest to scientists and engineers in the catalysis field. The coverage includes all major areas of heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis and also specific applications of catalysis such as NOx control kinetics and experimental techniques such as microcalorimetry. Each chapter is compiled by recognised experts within their specialist fields and provides a summary of the current literature. This series will be of interest to all those in academia and industry who need an up-to-date critical analysis and summary of catalysis research and applications. Catalysis will be of interest to anyone working in academia and industry that needs an up-to-date critical analysis and summary of catalysis research and applications. Specialist Periodical Reports provide systematic and detailed review coverage in major areas of chemical research. Compiled by teams of leading experts in their specialist fields, this series is designed to help the chemistry community keep current with the latest developments in their field. Each volume in the series is published either annually or biennially and is a superb reference point for researchers. www.rsc.org/spr

Towards Sustainable Chemical Processes describes a comprehensive framework for sustainability assessment, design and the processes optimization of chemical engineering. Beginning with the analysis and assessment in the early stage of chemical products’ initiating, this book focuses on the combination of science sustainability and process system engineering, involving mathematical models, industrial ecology, circular economy, energy planning, process integration and sustainability engineering. All chapters throughout answered two fundamental questions in depth: (1) what tools and models are available to be used to assess and design sustainable chemical processes, (2) what the core theories and concepts are to get into the sustainable chemical process fields. Therefore, Towards Sustainable Chemical Processes is an indispensable guide for chemical engineers, researchers, students, practitioners and consultants in sustainability related area. Provides innovative, novel and comprehensive methods and models for sustainability assessment, design and optimization, and synthesis and integration of chemical engineering processes Combines sustainability science with process system engineering Integrates mathematical models, industrial ecology, circular economy, energy planning, process integration and sustainability engineering Includes new case studies related to renewable energy, resource management, process synthesis and process integration

Plant-derived sugars and lignocellulosic biomass are considered feasible, renewable alternatives to the use of petroleum as an industrial feedstock. In this scenario, the production of compounds currently generated from petroleum will depend on efficient microbial catalysts. This written symposium contains papers from leading research groups which together provide an overview of novel strategies to overcome problems regarding the microbial production of industrial chemicals and fuels. In these papers, the authors describe metabolic engineering strategies and fermentation technology alternatives for the production of chemicals like lactic acid, succinic acid, acetic acid, ethanol and polyhydroxyalkanoates in 'Escherichia coli'. Examples are also presented on how metabolic engineering enables improvement of 'Saccharomyces cerevisiae' strains in the production of bulk chemicals for pharmaceutical, food and industrial applications. The material presented in this issue will provide a framework for bringing us closer to a future in which technology will be cleaner and more sustainable.

Sustainable production of chemicals is of increasing importance, due to depletion of petroleum and environmental concerns. In addition to its importance in basic research as a simple, eukaryotic model organism, Saccharomyces cerevisiae has long been exploited in industry because of its physiological properties. And today, the development in genetic engineering toolbox and genome-scale metabolic models of S. cerevisiae has extended its application range to new products and bioprocesses. In addition, evolutionary engineering strategies have been useful in improving cellular properties of S. cerevisiae, such as tolerance to product toxicity and inhibitors. In this chapter, recent metabolic and evolutionary engineering studies that involve S. cerevisiae for the production of bulk chemicals and fine chemicals including flavours and pharmaceuticals are reviewed. It was shown that metabolic engineering particularly allowed the improvement of pharmaceuticals production, which will enable economic and large-scale production of many valuable pharmaceuticals. It is clear that S. cerevisiae will continue to be an important host for future metabolic engineering and metabolic pathway engineering applications to produce a variety of industrially and clinically important chemicals.
