There is an Industrial Evolution happening. This evolution expands the conversation beyond renewable energy and focuses on materials. It empowers US to make the changes we seek via a BIOECONOMY.There is a perfect storm approaching for change. All elements lead to the need for new resources, to end poverty, war and hunger. Renewable energy is a small part of the solution. WE are empowered when focusing on products. Specifically, the chemicals and materials used to produce them. The potential opportunities are huge. Ninety-six percent of all U.S. manufactured goods use some sort of chemical product, and businesses dependant on the chemical industry account for nearly $3.6 trillion in US GDP. WE control what products we buy. We control the demand for fossil fuels, and now there are viable alternatives to allow us to change commerce. Now the Bioeconomy begins.
