Industrial Biotechnology is the authoritative, peer-reviewed bimonthly research journal focused on biobased industrial and environmental products and processes. The journal is the first and longest-running publication to report the science, business, and policy developments of the emerging global bioeconomy, including biobased production of energy and fuels, chemicals, materials, and consumer goods. The Journal publishes critically reviewed original research in all related sciences (biology, biochemistry, chemical and process engineering, agriculture), in addition to expert commentary on current policy, funding, markets, business, legal issues, and science trends. Industrial Biotechnology offers a premier forum bridging basic research and R&D with later-stage commercialization for sustainable biobased industrial and environmental applications.

Industrial Biotechnology covers science and R&D in:

  • Bioenergy, biofuels, biorefining
  • Biomass/feedstocks, agricultural sciences
  • Biomaterials: bioplastics, biofilms
  • Biobased chemicals and enzymes (bulk, fine, specialty)

…in support of industrial (non-pharmaceutical) markets:

  • Food, beverage, and feed processing
  • Cosmeceuticals and personal care
  • Fibers (pulp and paper; textiles)
  • Lubricants, surfactants, detergents
  • Automotive
  • Biodefense
  • Bioremediation
  • Bioprospecting and marine biotechnology
  • Nanobiotechnology

Industrial Biotechnology is under the editorial leadership of Co-Editors-in-Chief Glenn E. Nedwin, PhD, MoT, Human Therapeutics Division, Intrexon Corporation; Larry P. Walker, PhD, Biological & Environmental Engineering, Cornell University; and other leading investigators. View the entire editorial board.

Audience: Biochemists; biologists; chemists; microbiologists; synthetic biologists; chemical manufacturers; chemical, environmental, and agricultural engineers; agronomists; marine and extreme environment scientists; among others
