||The main purpose of this course is to introduce the essential knowledges of bioprocessing to traditional chemical engineers. No background in biology is assumed. Biopocess engineering is the application of engineering principles to design, develop, and analyze process using biocatalysts. These processes may result in the production of desirable compounds or in the destruction of unwanted or hazardous substances. The touls of the engineer, particularly the chemical engineer will be essential to the successful exploitation of bioprocesses.
