Abstract Biosurfactants (BS) produced by a variety of microorganisms show unique properties (e.g. mild production conditions, multi-functionality, higher environmental compatibility) compared to their chemical counterparts. The numerous advantages of BS have prompted applications not only in the food, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical industries but in environmental protection and energy-saving technology as well. Among BS, “Glycolipid type” BS are the most promising, due to high productivity from… Expand
