Handbook of Industrial Chemistry and Biotechnology Vol. 1 – James A. Kent – 11th Edition


Handbook of Industrial and Biotechnology Provides an integrated view of manufacturing areas with other topics essential in the new era. No other source offers as much data on the , , economics, and infrastructure of the . Serves a spectrum of individuals, from those who are directly involved in the to others in related industries and activities.

New edition containing data on nanotechnology, technology, and industrial production of enzymes and therapeutic proteins. The Handbook provides not only the underlying and technology for important industry sectors, but also broad coverage of critical supporting topics. Industrial and products can be much enhanced through observing the tenets and applying the methodologies found in chapters on Engineering and Chemistry (specifically, biomass conversion), Practical Catalysis, and Environmental Measurements; as well as expanded treatment of Safety, chemistry plant security, and Emergency Preparedness.
