This compact disc read only memory (CD-ROM) deals with the use of agricultural and forest products as raw materials for the chemical, fibre, building and bioenergy industries. In particular, it covers activities supported by the European Commission (EC) through the Directorate-General for Science, Research and Development (DG XII). The industrial use of plants can make a significant contribution to measures adopted by the EC to find new uses for farm land; sustain rural economy; create jobs; and build SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) based on new technology using renewable resources. In addition, this approach has both local and global environmental benefits. Aspects of EC, national and international activities relating to non-food agro-industrial use are presented here, along with details of individuals and organizations active or interested in non-food uses.
