Roelants, Lisa Van Renterghem, Karolien Maes, Bernd Everaert, Emile Redant, Brecht Vanlerberghe, Sofie Demaeseneire, and Wim Soetaert -- The future of microbial biosurfactants and their applications / Roger Marchant. Microbial biosurfactants are green molecules with high application potential in environmental and industrial sectors. Chemical diversity of biosurfactants allows them versatility and broad range surfactants capability without compromising performanceor economic viability. Biosurfactants are used as emulsifiers, dispersants, wetting agents, oil recovery agents, biopesticides, stabilizers, solubilizers, and bioremediation agents (pesticide, heavy metals and oil spill cleanup). This comprehensive book on biosurfactants and their environmental and industrial applications offers a broad spectrum of information on potential applications of biosurfactants in various fields and related technological developments.
