Higher value coproducts such as chemicals from lignin could also improve revenues for initial operations. However, in spite of the advantages such measures can afford, it is still likely that government support will be essential to implement technology for the first time. ; ACS Symposium Series; American Chemical Society: Washington, DC, 2002. 41 Research and Development Implications for Commercializing Biocommodity Products Contingencies built into capital costs to meet process guarantees coupled with requirements for feedstock and product contracts and safe profit margins are major hurdles for new products.

Uncertainty still clouds our understanding of the full impact of endocrinedisrupting chemicals (EDCs), but it is understood that their effects include disrupting the body's natural control over the reproductive system by mimicking or blocking the regulatory functions of the steroid hormones or by altering the amounts of hormones in the body. Both because these persistent organochlorine pollutants have been shown to cause severe reproductive damage to certain mammals at miniscule body burdens and because comparable tests cannot be performed on humans, it is important that we reinvent chemical technology such that the sources of known anthropogenic EDCs are eliminated altogether (3-7).

In general terms, Stokes favored consideration of both elements—applications and understanding—in a sector labeled "Pasteur's quadrant" in honor of the great scientist who laid the foundations of microbiology with a view to applications such as curing disease. In this mode, applications benefit from an improved fundamental understanding that illuminates cause-and-effect relationships. Similarly, biomass research can benefit from an emphasis on developing fundamental principles that support commercial applications.
