<b>Bioresource Technology</b> <p><b>Discover the latest developments in the field of bioresource technology with this practical handbook</b> <p>The management and cultivation of bioresources are critical components of the economic survival of nations. Significantly underexplored, recent advances in bioresource technologies have breathed new life into the research and development of new bioresource techniques and capabilities. <p>In <i>Bioresource Technology: Concept, Tools, and Experiences, </i>a team of distinguished researchers delivers a comprehensive work intended to bridge the gap between field-oriented taxonomists and ecologists and lab-oriented functional and molecular biologists. <p>The book is divided into three sections: food, environment, and energy. In the first part, the authors explore the functional food sector, from green and smart food packaging to nanosensors as diagnostic tools in the food industry. The second part is concerned with the achievement of future energy security through the use of bioresources as energy sources. Finally, the third section discusses sustainable environmental management policies via bioresource use. <p>Readers will also benefit from the inclusion of: <ul><li>A thorough introduction on the recent advances in the technology pertaining to functional food industry to overcome the future food challenges</li> <li>Comprehensive explorations of the art and science of growing microgreens, including their historical background, cultivation practices, quality, and shelf life</li> <li>In-depth examinations of the bioprospecting of bioresources, including bioprospecting in agriculture, chemical industries, and diagnostic applications</li> <li>Provides state-of-the art technologies in the green energy sector to cater for the energy demand of the people, reducing greenhouse gases (GHG) and the reliance on fossil fuels</li> <li>In-depth understanding on the recent advances in the bioresource management policies and sustainable environment</li></ul> <p>Perfect for postgraduate students, research scholars, faculty, and scientists involved in agriculture, plant sciences, environmental sciences, bioenergy, biofuels, molecular biology, and microbiology, <i>Bioresource Technology: Concept, Tools, and Experiences</i> is also an indispensable resource for those working in biochemistry, biotechnology, and food technology.
