The search for and development of non-fuel industrial uses of agricultural commodities is an ongoing endeavour. New technologies which can involve chemically, enzymatic ally, or genetically modifying agricultural products will be required in order meet the requirements of the products of the future, and to continue the eventual switch to an economy based on renewable resources. Adhesives, lubricants, polymers, and inks are some of the industries where we may see even more petrochemical replacement in the near future.
