Bioengineering for pollution prevention

Abstract:
EPA, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, has published a state-of-the-science report that examines scientists' understanding of plant-based alternatives to petroleum for materials and energy. Entitled "Bioengineering for Pollution Prevention Through Development of Biobased Materials and Energy," (pdf download, 4.21 MB) the report looks at the progress made towards using plants and plant oils for plastics and fuels as well as the challenges for using these alternatives on scales large enough to meet society's needs and still protect the environment.

The report addresses the use of nanotechnology, in particular nanomaterials and nanofiltration systems.
