About this Research Topic
The combined effects of energy, water shortages, climate change, and a generation of non-renewable or reusable waste has led to a new green revolution. This has brought many new opportunities and challenges for the chemical and food industry. There is a growing tendency to use subproducts of natural ingredients or compounds from biological origins (such as metabolites, proteins, single-cell proteins, and enzymes) as part of bioproducts. This, however, increases the complexity of the product's formulation and preparation procedures. One way of approaching this is using a multiscale strategy which allows a deeper understanding of the relationship between the molecular interactions, the microscopic structure, and how these affect the macroscopic properties of the product of interest.
This Research Topic aims to highlight the scientific and technical advances that address knowledge gaps in the multiscale strategy of bioproduct design and development such as by coupling formulation and process variables. We welcome submissions of original research that show significant progress in this area. Areas covered by this Research Topic include, but are not limited to, the chemical, cosmetics, food, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical industries.
Keywords: Multiscale design, Bioproducts design, Integrated design, Rational design, Bioproducts technology
