Title: PREPARATIONS FOR THE CREATION OF A EUROPEAN TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM ON BIOFUELS


1
working with plants - towards the
knowledge-based bioeconomy David
ClaytonCoordinator EU/US Consortium
EPOBIO Lead partner Centre for Novel
Agricultural Products Director Prof Dianna
Bowles
2
the need for sustainable development
climate change and the environment supply,
security and cost of fossil reserves increasing
global demand
the bio-economy bioscience the science of the
21st century
3
a solar energy source for manufacturing
photosynthesis clean technology sustainable high
capacity complex chemicals
plants for food, feed for livestock and non-food
uses
4
field, forest and glass-house crops
  • agriculture, horticulture, forestry and
    aquaculture provide products for all aspects of
    our lives food, feed, medicines, chemicals and
    materials
  • non-food applications and the potential for
    renewable energy are increasingly important

5
scientific observations become breeding tools
for the farmer

land availability and use 15/20 years and
beyond ?

demand for productive land scarcity and security
of resources and water
increasing use of agricultural feedstocks for
industrial production of biofuels and
bioproducts the need to protect the security
and quality of the food chain
8
advanced biorefineries
zero-waste multiple products from a
crop specialised feedstocks for biofuels new
opportunities for biochemicals
increasing use of marginal land optimised
products and co-products improved processing
need to decrease inputs and increase outputs

  • Three case studies
  • A European/US initiative in which the UK is
    taking the lead
  • A UK national industry-led initiative
  • A UK centre of excellence in biorenewables

EC-US TASK FORCE ON BIOTECHNOLOGY RESEARCH
science to support policy
plant-based bioproducts creating value from
renewable resources
12
science to support policy
in the epobio project, desk researchers identify
and integrate the science, technology and supply
chains to realise the full potential of the plant
production system validation is through the
analysis of sustainability criteria placing the
science within wider context of environmental
impacts, economics, regulatory frameworks and
social implications
  • the epobio process a holistic analysis of the
    issues to provide a thorough evidence-base to
    inform decision-making by funding agencies and
    policy-makers

13
science to support policy
the epobio process - selection criteria for
priority flagships
  • user / consumer benefit societal benefit across
    the entire supply chain
  • scientific challenge large-scale,
    complementary, multinational input
  • economic benefits and risk analyses the project
    as a continuum research to demonstration
  • private sector involvement pre-competitive,
    assurance of value and opportunity

14
science to support policy
flagship themes selected
environmental impacts, economics, regulatory
frameworks and social implications a
communication strategy
enabling world class science and technology to
lead to sustainable products of high utility to
benefit society
15
science to support policy
  • The 2006 epobio Workshop
  • PRODUCTS FROM PLANTS the biorefinery future
  • The 2007 epobio Workshop
  • PRODUCTS FROM PLANTS from crops and forests to
    zero-waste biorefineries

the lignocellulose issue
feedstocks energy crops, agricultural
co-products, forestry, vegetable waste
17
crop platforms for cell wall biorefining
lignocellulose feedstocks
forest species and short rotation
coppicing perennial grasses co-products from
arable farming
scientific opportunities in a wider holistic
context economics, regulations, environmental
impacts, sustainability criteria, regional
land-use decisions
RD needs for mid / long term optimisation
18
industrial crop platforms for the production of
chemicals and biopolymers
established global sugar crop specialised niche
crop perennial grasses
scientific opportunities in a wider holistic
context economics, regulations, environmental
impacts, sustainability criteria, regional
land-use decisions
RD needs for mid / long term optimisation
19
oil crop platforms for industrial uses
established global oil crop underutilised arable
crop dedicated non-food oil crop
scientific opportunities in a wider holistic
context economics, regulations, environmental
impacts, sustainability criteria, regional
land-use decisions
RD needs for mid / long term optimisation
20
the efficient production and effective use of the
plant production system is key to the new
bio-based economy
a robust evidence base of science must underpin
policy
