This Industrial Bioprocessing TOE features trends across biosurfactants. The dwindling fossil fuel resources have it essential to seek renewable alternatives. Currently, the surfactant industry is under scrutiny for consequential environmental risks due to incomplete biodegradation of synthetic surfactants.
The Industrial Bioprocessing TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, processes and strategic insights of industries involving bioprocessing, including innovations in the development and production of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, alternative fuels, chemical feedstocks, food and beverages, and consumer products.
The Materials and Coatings cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
Keywords: Biosurfactants, non-toxic compounds, biocompatible surfactants, petroleum counterparts replacement, microbe-based products
