Biobased Industrial Products Priorities for Research and Commercialization by NRC pdf free download. Biological sciences are likely to make the same impact on the formation of new industries in the next century as the physical and chemical sciences have had on industrial development throughout the century now coming to a close. The biological sciences, when combined with recent and future advances in process engineering, can become the foundation for producing a wide variety of industrial products from renewable plant resources. These “biobased industrial products” will include liquid fuels, chemicals, lubricants, plastics, and building materials.

For example, genetically engineered crops currently under development include rapeseed that produces industrial oils, corn that produces specialty chemicals, and transgenic plants that produce polyesters. Except perhaps for large-scale production of bioenergy crops, the land and other agricultural resources of the United States are sufficient to satisfy current domestic and export demands for food, feed, and fiber and still produce the raw materials for most biobased industrial products.

During this century petroleum-based industrial products gradually replaced similar products once made from biological materials. Now, biobased industrial products are beginning to compete with petroleumderived products that once displaced them. This progress has been made possible by the wealth of knowledge on the scientific basis for conversion of biomass to sugars and other chemicals, particularly the knowledge of biochemical and fermentation fundamentals and related progress in process technology and agricultural economics. New discoveries occurring in microbial, chemical, and genetic engineering research, in particular, could lead to technological advances necessary to reduce the cost of biobased industrial products.
