    and electric power This transformation however must be done in a manner that meets our present needs without compromising those of future generations National Prominence in Biofuels and Bioenergy The Institute builds upon a five year initiative at ISU that has brought the university to national prominence in the field of biofuels and bioenergy The establishment of the Institute assure ISU s continued prominence in this rapidly advancing field The Bioeconomy Institute a campuswide effort launched in 2002 to investigate the use of biorenewable resources as sustainable feedstocks for producing chemicals fuels materials and energy Under this umbrella BEI has engaged More than 260 faculty and staff affiliated members 29 departments in all seven colleges and 20 research centers and institutes Industry and federal agencies to sponsor over 80 million in external funding in the last five years Those involved in the Bioeconomy Institute realize that in the process of moving beyond our current dependence on petroleum the bioeconomy is nothing less than a revolution in the way society will supply itself with essential sources of carbon and energy Just as petroleum refiners have been inextricably connected to places and cultures where oil was deposited in the earth the biorefiners of the future will be inextricably connected to agriculture and forestry However unlike petroleum drilling biorenewable feedstocks are produced from an ecosystem that needs to be conserved and renewed in order to ensure future production capacity Therefore the bioeconomy will require tight linkages between plant breeding soil fertility sustainable crop production biomass transportation and logistics rural communities bioprocessing distribution and marketing services Cohesion and Collaboration Like many land grant institutions Iowa State s faculty has been engaged for many years in both fundamental and applied research projects related to biorenewable resources and biobased products What distinguishes ISU is its early
