The increasing need for environmentally friendly products or substances is driving the use of metabolites based on beneficial microorganisms. Soil is essential for the maintenance of biodiversity above and below ground. Millions of microorganisms live and reproduce in a few grams of topsoil, an ecosystem essential for life on earth. Moreover, microorganisms are capable of producing chemical compounds that have not been synthesized in the laboratory or can only be processed with considerable difficulty. Not only do these soil microflorae play a significant role in the conservation of soil quality, but they also play a vital role in biomedical, pharmaceutical, and industrial applications. In this chapter, we address recent advances in the industrial manufacture of chemical products by microorganisms. 

Keywords: Industrial use, Natural products, Soil microbes.
