Reutilization of biomass resources.


 Nowadays, as population rapidly grows, many problems such as medical treatment, lack of food, shortage of resources and pollution of environment, have threatened our life.Biotechnology has an important role in wide-ranging aspects of our life. Also it has the ability to solve such problems from now on too.Fortunately, there is a lot of biomass, which haven’t been used to its utmost potential on the Earth.
