Industrial Biotechnology

Isabel Arends, Sef Heijnen, Henk Noorman, Patricia Osseweijer, Luuk van der Wielen, DelftX

Learn the basics of sustainable processing for biobased products to further understand their impact on global sustainability.

As fossil-based fuels and raw materials contribute to climate change, the use of renewable materials and energy as an alternative is increasingly important and common. This transition is not a luxury, but rather a necessity. We can use the unique properties of microorganisms to convert organic waste streams into biomaterials, chemicals and biofuels. This course provides the insights and tools for the design of biotechnology processes in a sustainable way. Six experienced course leaders will teach you the basics of industrial biotechnology and how to apply these to the design of fermentation processes for the production of fuels, chemicals and foodstuffs.

Throughout this course, you will be encouraged to design your own biotechnological process and evaluate its performance and sustainability. This undergraduate course includes guest lectures from industry as well as from the University of Campinas in Brazil, with over 40 years of experience in bio-ethanol production. The course is a joint initiative of TU Delft, the international BE-Basic consortium and University of Campinas.

What will you learn

After this course all learners will be able to:
1. appreciate the need for sustainable innovation and how biotechnology and biobased production can contribute to this
2. describe the global context of biobased production
3. map the biobased economy, from research to application and from raw materials to products
4. solve basic level calculations in bioprocess engineering. 

Verified learners will have the added benefit of being able to:
5. integrate scientific and technological knowledge on the use of bioprocesses for industrial products at the cell and process level
6. develop and assess the conditions for efficient and sustainable design of bioprocesses
7. solve undergraduate engineering level calculations in bioprocess engineering.
