Industrial Uses of Agricultural Materials Situation and Outlook Report (1)
Recent scientific advances are reducing the costs of producing and processing renewable resources into industrial products. These include advances that make agricultural production techniques more environmentally benign. And the advances in processing engineering-especially in destructive distillation, steam explosion, ultracentrifuges, and membranes-are making agriculturally based products more competitive. The scientific gains, along with Federal and State environmental regulations and growing consumer preferences for "green" products, are increasing the industrial demand for agricultural materials.
