7 Our Agenda I.Why biorenewables? II.NSF Energy Research Centers III.ISUs Center for Biorenewable Chemicals YOU IV.CBiRC Educational Programs for YOU ! V.Shameless Promotional Video VI.Resources You Can Use

8 If the only source of energy the world used is currently existing oil, how long would it last? a. 6 months b. 4 years c. 15 years d. 25 years

9 If the only source of energy the world used is currently existing biomass, how long would it last? a. 6 months b. 4 years c. 15 years d. 25 years

10 Oil vs. Biomass Whats the difference? 9

11 URANIUM YEARLY WORLD ENERGY USE COAL OIL GAS WAVES WIND OCEAN THERMAL BIOMASS HYDRO TOTAL RESERVES World Energy Today SOLAR 10

12 SO, WHY BIORENEWABLES??? 11 Because theres more to life than GAS & iPODS !

22 How Is CBiRC Research Organized? 21

23 Defining Thrust Questions THRUST 1 New Biocatalysts for Pathway Engineering Can the biocatalytic machinery of the fatty acid/polyketide synthesis pathway be systematically harnessed? THRUST 2 Microbial Metabolic Engineering Can microbial systems be designed for the efficient production of reduced carbon chemical species? THRUST 3 Chemical Catalyst Design Can chemical catalysts be designed for the selective conversion of multifunctionalized substrates?

24 SO, WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU??? 23

25 Education Center ISU Education Center ISU Develop and Coordinate activities Pre-college program Pre-college program Promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics emphasizing renewables Research experience for high school teachers Sponsor Young Engineers Program Research experience for undergraduates Research experience for undergraduates Minors in biological and chemical catalysis Summer research experience program International program International program Germany (Max Planck) Denmark (Technical University) Finland Netherlands Company internship program Company internship program Work closely with member companies to provide best possible students and continued support during internship Education Programs 24
