Technological Innovation of Bioenergy

The United States threw strong support behind the biomass resource-based energy/chemical-manufacturing industry in the 1990s, positioning it - together with the IT industry - as a new, important industrial sector for the 21st century. To spur technological development, the country in 1999 designated the biorefinery industry as its strategically important science theme under a presidential decree, prompting industrial circles to boost research & development efforts. Against the background of the 2006 State of the Union address, in which President George W. Bush pledged support for biofuels, coupled with soaring crude oil prices, production of biofuels based on food resources increased sharply. A subsequent spike in food prices and excessive burdens on the environment stemming from the cutting down of rainforests have globally aroused concerns and debate over "negative effects." Currently, international environmental nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), UN agencies such as FAO, member states of the EU, and other quarters concerned are strongly urging regulations meant to make sustainable biofuels indispensable and develop traceability technology so as to ensure sustainability.
