Abstract

The aim of this study is to identify the fundamental issues and inherent problems affecting biotechnology today, formulating strategic options for its most effective use in the European Community in respect of the provision of chemical feedstocks and derived products. The technical, economic, environmental, social and political factors which need to be considered over the next thirty years are examined. Because these issues cannot be isolated from other technologies, and in particular from considerations of energy utilization in Europe, a wider perspective concerning industrial operations has been dealt with.
