Book Description

Of major environmental; economic and social importance; Industrial Microbiology: An Introduction (PDF) involves the utilization of microorganisms in the production of a wide range of products; including enzymes; beverages; foods; fuels; chemical feedstocks and pharmaceuticals; and clean technologies employed for waste treatment and pollution control.

Aimed at undergraduates studying the applied aspects of biology; particularly those on microbiology and biotechnology courses and students of food science and biochemical engineering; this etextbook provides a wide-ranging introduction to the field of industrial microbiology. The content is divided into 3 sections:

  • investigation of a wide range of established and novel industrial fermentation processes and products
  • industrial microorganisms and the technology required for large-scale cultivation and isolation of fermentation products
  • key aspects of microbial physiology; exploring the versatility of microorganisms; their diverse metabolic activities and products

Written by experienced lecturers with industrial backgrounds; Industrial Microbiology: An Introduction provides the reader with groundwork in both the fundamental principles of microbial biology and the various traditional and novel applications of microorganisms to industrial processes; many of which have been made possible or enhanced by recent developments in genetic engineering technology.

  • A wide-ranging introduction to the field of industrial microbiology
  • Explains the underlying microbiology as well as the industrial application.
  • Based on years of teaching experience by experienced lecturers with industrial backgrounds


“In today’s world; it is important that college students understand thefundamentals; but it is also important that the application ofthese concepts be encouraged. Moreover; a vision of how conceptscan be applied often fuels thirst for basic knowledge. In this respect; Industrial Microbiology is a valuable textbook.”Paul B Rainey; Times Higher Education Supplement; 29 November 2002

“…fascinating overview of the metabolic diversity of micro-organisms and the key roles they play in inudstrial processes…an excellent textbook for undergraduate students. The chapters are consistently well written and the figures and tables supplement the textbook very well.” Bob Sotak; E-Streams; vol 5; no.12; December 2002

“In view of the advent of ‘modern’ biotechnologies; the question ‘What is biotechnology?’ has been asked and discussed broadly during the last decades. One of the best answers to define those activities that characterize the use of microorganisms for the production of enzymes and fermentation products is Industrial Microbiology … Thus; if you are interested in obtaining a rather sound and at the same time comprehensive introduction to enzyme and fermentation technology; including the necessary basic knowledge of relevant micro-organisms; this ebook could be a good choice.” M Roehr; Acta Biotechnolgica; September 2003
