Motivation for the Survey


Energy debate

gathers momentum


Chemical industry
faces

public & government
demand for
cleaner technologies


Growing public interest
in the

origin

of
products and materials


Need to separate fact from fiction!

The Survey


What research is happening in the area of

fuels, chemicals and energy

from
renewable resources?


Which

geographic regions

are involved?


Is this field growing in importance?


What is the information landscape?


What do researchers in this field need?

Methodology

Research existing publications

Literature searches to establish trends

Key conferences

Focus groups

Expert interviews

Where science meets business

Methodology



Most of the academic community see opportunities
but don’t see the potential for chemistry in the
biofuels industry.
We c
ould do with stronger steers
and getting more chemistry into these meetings,
so
that biologists are talking to the chemists and
vice versa
.


Literature searches to establish trends

Expert interviews

ISI’s Web of Science

Where science meets business

Methodology



There is a totally different network evolving now,
which needs to bring in
agricultural scientists,
biologists, chemical engineers, chemists,
business



even social sciences or policy effects are
relevant…this area of research needs an
interdisciplinary
effort to succeed


Expert interviews

Where science meets business

Methodology








USA

SIM’s Symposium on Biotechnology for Fuels & Chemicals

Bio’s World Congress on Industrial Biotechnol & Bioprocessing

Key conferences

Europe

Renewable Resources & Biorefineries

Methodology




Focus groups

April 2006:
SIM’s Symposium, Nashville, TN, USA



There is a
disconnect

between research information and
commercialisation


“A lot of innovation comes from
discrete areas


Where science meets business

Methodology




Focus groups

June 2006:
SCI headquarters, London, UK


“There are
pockets of information
. Knowledge does
exist but it’s not flowing very well”

“We need to
link up

the entire R&D chain”
