Society for Biological Engineering (SBE)

SBE is a global technological community that promotes the integration of engineering with biology and realize its benefits through bioprocessing, biomedical, and biomolecular applications. SBE provides opportunities for interaction of engineers and scientists, develops products and services bring value to the broad biological engineering community, and infuses awareness of biological engineering among all functions and activities of AIChE.

Forest Bioproducts Division (FBP)

The Forest Bioproducts Division promotes knowledge sharing and networking on topics dealing with products obtained from forest resources and other lignocellulosic materials.

Fermentation Goes Large-Scale

Special Section
Alex Patist, Aristos Aristidou , J. J. Hahn , Pim van Hoek
Designing an economically competitive and environmentally sustainable fermentation route means considering the downstream separations needed to capture the final product during the initial process design.

Purifying Therapeutic Monoclonal Antibodies

SBE Special Section
Amit Mehta, Amy Len, Benedicte Lebreton, Bradley Wolk, Jace Fogle, Martha Lovato Tse, Nuno Fontes, Robert van Reis, Roshan Shrestha
Eliminating the affinity chromatography step in the mAb purification process trims equipment requirements, shrinks the plant footprint— and reduces costs.

Principles of Bioprocess Control

SBE Special Section
Joseph S. Alford
The use of complex living organisms, process variation, and lack of real-time measurements of key parameters are some of the challenges involved in automating a bioprocess. This article explains an indirect approach to monitoring and controlling a...

Enzyme Discovery: Screening, Cloning, Evolving

SBE Special Section
Glenn Nedwin, Per Falholt, Thomas Schaefer
Enzymes are nature’s answer to many industrial and environmental challenges. This article details the latest approaches to enzyme discovery and evolution.

Biobutanol – A Replacement for Bioethanol?

SBE Special Section
Ron Cascone
Ethanol, the leading incumbant biofuel, has several limitations.Butanol overcomes many of these, and holds promise as the next important transportation biofuel.
