Fermentation Technology - BiOZEEN | Training

Microbial Fermentation Technology

Microbes practically touch every stream of our life and are widely exploited industrially in agro, food, pharma, biologics, chemical, energy, waste treatment, etc. The process may differ but the underlining principles in all the aforementioned applications involve fermentation technology. The Fermentation Technology module aims to introduce you to the fundamentals of microbiology, process knowledge required for fermentation, parameters to be controlled during fermentation, its industrial application and recent technological advances.

Basic Program: 1 Week Duration
