Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 67)


The world is in a state of change. The following decades will be dominated by shortages in food and energy and also by environmental concerns. The so-called untapped or underemployed natural resources, forgotten until a short time ago, are now being listed by a large number of countries, giving rise to a certain competition as to their possible use as food or energy.
