Biological processing of biomass to commodity products through such an approach has recently been termed "biocommodity engineering" to distinguish the unique features of this emerging discipline from more typical current applications of biotechnology to high-value, low-volume health care products (8). Sustainability and Other Benefits of Biocommodity Products Sustainable development can be defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs (10).
