The world has a unique opportunity to develop a next-generation bioproduct industry in the next two decades. There could be major benefits in terms of job creation, the economy, reduction of greenhouse gases and energy security. Read the executive summary from Bloomberg on the next-generation ethanol economy (pdf), or view the full study (pdf).
In Europe today there is an agricultural residue resource available that could be sustainably harvested without altering current agricultural land-use patterns. This resource could be turned into a variety of bioproducts ranging from transport fuels to chemicals and plastics. Read the executive summary "Bioproducts - diversifying farmers' income", by Bloomberg (pdf). See the slideshow "Bioproducts - diversifying farmers' income", by Bloomberg (pdf).
