The 25 chapters in this volume describe various fermentations and biotechnological processes which did not fit readily into preceding volumes. Among the topics are many that document the opening of new fields: coal in biotechnology, poly-?-hydroxy- butyric acid, biotechnological photosynthesis, accumulation and leaching of metals, microbial processing of tobacco, flax and leather, and future perspectives of biotechnology in space.

Written by specialists from leading industrial countries who make their knowledge and expertise available to the reader, the contributions are highly applications oriented, thus following the basic principle of this series. They form at the same time a handy reference for everyone already working in the field. Together with the other volumes in the series they help to get a clearer understanding of the entire field of biotechnology.
