Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

There are numerous biosurfactant producing strains and products reported annually most of which aspiring to potential future industrial and environmental applications. Only a few of these compounds have reached commercial applications due to many impediments to large scale production and applications. We investigate some of the important criteria and investigations required to achieve such future commercial application.
