About this book

Fungi and Lignocellulosic Biomass offers a comprehensive review of the use of fungi in efficient and cost-effective conversion of cellulosic biomass into fuel. Complete, up-to-date coverage ranges from the biochemical basis of cellulose degradation by fungi to the application of key fungal enzymes in the biofuel industry. The enzymology of cellulose, hemicelluloses, and lignin degradation are all examined. Written by a leading researcher in the field, this book is a valuable tool for researchers, engineers, and industry professionals interested in advancing the development and production of biofuels.
