The central theme of the textbook remains the application ofchemical engineering principles to biological processes in general,demonstrating how a chemical engineer would address and solveproblems. To create a logical and clear structure, the book isdivided into three parts. The first deals with the basic conceptsand principles of chemical engineering and can be read by thosestudents with no prior knowledge of chemical engineering. Thesecond part focuses on process aspects, such as heat and masstransfer, bioreactors, and separation methods. Finally, the thirdsection describes practical aspects, including medical deviceproduction, downstream operations, and fermenter engineering. Morethan 40 exemplary solved exercises facilitate understanding of thecomplex engineering background, while self-study is supported bythe inclusion of over 80 exercises at the end of each chapter,which are supplemented by the corresponding solutions.
An excellent, comprehensive introduction to the principles ofbiochemical engineering.
