Enzymes such as cellulases have been applied as tools for research and development and in almost every industrial sector including agriculture, food, beverages and animal feed, pulp and paper, textile. Cellulases is a general term that encompasses multiple enzymes that work in synergism for cellulose degradation. This book examines the production, applications and health benefits of cellulase. Chapter One describes the isolation, screening, diversity and cellulase production of microorganisms including their applications. Chapter Two discusses the factors affecting production of cellulase enzyme by microorganisms, the potential of indigenous microorganism for the bio-augmentation process of biosolids and occurrence of catabolite repression phenomenon of cellulase production during the enzymatic degradation of biosolids. Chapter Three addresses substrate factors related to enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose and lignocellulosic materials. (Imprint: Novinka)
