Kurzfassung auf Englisch: Biotechnology is an area of production and research in which biological systems and biological
principles are employed to solve technological problems. This includes beer brewing using yeast as
well as the production of pharmaceuticals by immobilized enzymes. Also some systems in
biotechnology were developed using cultured cells of higher plants to produce economically
valuable chemical compounds, mostly of pharmaceutical interests, in fermenter systems up to some
ten thousand liters. Still, in spite of great efforts during the last decades only rather few applications
of such systems in commercial companies became known. Here economic considerations require
that the product for the market should not only have the same price as the conventionally produced
one from raw material obtained from agricultural products. In order to initiate a change in the
production process the fermenter product has to be at least at halve the production costs as the
conventionally produced compound.
