Restructuring conventional cereal-based processes is essential in order to create viable biorefineries for the production of fuels, chemicals and materials. Advanced biorefinery schemes should exploit the full potential of cereal grains by exploiting every component and residue to produce a wide spectrum of commodity and speciality products. This chapter presents generic biorefinery approaches that utilize the wheat grain for the production of bioethanol, polyhydroxybutyrate, succinic acid and various ...
