Abstract

From this brief discussion, it is clear that there are many obstacles to overcome before hyperthermophilic archaebacteria will be an important aspect of biotechnology. Nevertheless, the prospects are intriguing. The nature of the environments that harbor these organisms and the consequent requirements for their controlled culture suggest that chemical and biochemical engineers can play an important role in elucidating their scientific and technological aspects.
