It is considered that biohydrogen is going to be a good biofuel because of its high-energy content properties.There are various types of technologies that are being developed so that biohydrogen can be produced from them. In this chapter modern and various approaches for biohydrogen production are being discussed. The difficulties and problems regarding biohydrogen productions are also outlined.

3. “Wastewater Treatment Using Membrane Bioreactor (Mbr) Technology” by Zohaib Ur Rehman and Sher Jamal Khan

“Wastewater Treatment Using Membrane Bioreactor (Mbr) Technology” Book Review: Membrane bioreactor is an unique and fresh technology for the treatment of wastewater. The book discusses how we can reuse and treat the wastewater. The purpose of the research is to reduce the dirt in the membrane bioreactor using biofilm carriers. Chapter 1 of the book tells us that the objectives of the research has been achieved. Chapter 2 gives us the information about MBR technology, membrane fouling mechanism, factors and mitigation approaches. Chapter 3 tells us about what were the methods that were used to achieve the research objectives. In chapter 4 the results of the methods that were discussed in chapter 3 is shown. Chapter 5 discusses the conclusions that were made and also about recommendations for further research. The book is very useful for students and professionals who have interest in Membrane Bioreactor and wastewater treatment.

4. “Fed-Batch Cultures: Principles and Applications of Semi-Batch Bioreactors (Cambridge Series in Chemical Engineering)” by Henry C Lim and Hwa Sung Shin

“Fed-Batch Cultures: Principles and Applications of Semi-Batch Bioreactors (Cambridge Series in Chemical Engineering)” Book Review: Most of the industry related fermentation and bioreactor operations are implemented using fed-batch mode with which we can produce various types of products. This is the first book that gives all the information about fed-batch operations. The book provides various examples of applications of fed-batch operation. The experts from various parts of the world have contributed in this book about their research and industrial experience. This book is very useful for researchers and for industrial practitioners of fed-batch processes in biotechnology, fermentation, food, pharmaceuticals and waste treatment industries.

5. “Bioreactor Immobilized Enzymes and Cells: Fundamentals and Applications” by Murray Moo-Young
6. “Industrial Dye Decolorization Using Membrane Bioreactor” by Sawsan Abdellatif

“Industrial Dye Decolorization Using Membrane Bioreactor” Book Review: Industrial dye decolorization is a crucial part of our civilization but because of this there is a lot of pollution in the environment. Dyes are heterocyclic compounds which are usually pungent. They are unmanageable, dangerous and even have a capability to cause cancer. Therefore it is important to develop a mechanism for the bleaching and degradation of dyes.Fungi is used for the degradation and bleaching of dyes by producing enzymes. The concept of industrial dye decolourization is a new concept for the production of these enzymes. These enzymes are able to reduce the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), chlorinated phenols, polychlorinated biphenyls, dioxins, pesticides and explosives.

7. “A Novel Bioreactor for Tissue Engineering” by Bahar Bilgen

“A Novel Bioreactor for Tissue Engineering” Book Review: The ongoing research in tissue engineering tells us about the need to explore the consequences of mechanical and hydrodynamic forces on the development of engineered-tissues. The research tells us that shear stress, axial and radial flow affectes tissue size and semantic distribution of cells.To predicts chondrocyte proliferation and extracellular matrix deposition, a kinetic tissue-growth model was previously developed. These kinetic constants can be correlated with the hydrodynamic parameters by using artificial neural network models.

8. “Development of a Collagen Gel Sandwich Hepatocyte Bioreactor” by Dora Farkas

“Development of a Collagen Gel Sandwich Hepatocyte Bioreactor” Book Review: To progress in academic and industrial research, understanding of hepatotoxicity of drugs is very important. The study of hepatotoxicity is very difficult because the hepatocytes are very difficult to maintain. It has been noticed that producing hepatocytes is being maintained in vivo-like morphology for weeks. There is very limited data about the applicability of drug metabolism in collagen sandwiches. It has been shown that the collagen sandwich is a suitable system for hepatotoxicity studies and also for proteomics analysis.

9. “Biofringe Techniques in Suspended Growth Fixed-Bed Bioreactor” by Radhi Baker Bakar

“Biofringe Techniques in Suspended Growth Fixed-Bed Bioreactor” Book Review: Due to market demand there is an increased demand for seafood processing industries. These types of industries produce large amounts of wastewater which is harmful for aquatic animals and plants and also for human beings. This book focuses on the performance of suspended growth fixed-bed bioreactor (SBBR) for seafood wastewater treatment. In treatment 1, it is discussed that the reactor is arranged with a novel acrylic fiber that is bio fringe with activated sludge (BF+AS). In treatment 2, it was arranged with only activated sludge (AS) system. Both the treatments 1 & 2 are estimated in terms of chemical oxygen demand (COD), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5), total kjeldahl nitrogen (TKN), ammoniacal nitrogen (NH3-N), nitrate ( NO3-N) and nitrite (NO2- N).

10. “Biotreatment of Oil-Contaminated Mangrove Soil in a Bioreactor” by Eziuzor Samuel Chukwunyelum

“Biotreatment of Oil-Contaminated Mangrove Soil in a Bioreactor” Book Review: To study the practicality of Niger-Delta Mangrove Swamp Soil, laboratory scale tests were carried out. Two tests were performed for a period of 28 days. In the first test to evaluate the autochthonous hydrocarbon utilizers in aerated bioreactor, the soil and water were put into the system. In the second test, NPK fertilizer was added for biostimulation. The reaction of the autochthonous hydrocarbon utilizers to the biotreatment was positive.

11. “Bioreactor Systems for Tissue Engineering II: Strategies for the Expansion and Directed Differentiation of Stem Cells (Advances in Biochemical Engineering/Biotechnology)” by Martijn van Griensven and Cornelia Kasper
