    In recent years major emphasis has been placed on nonrenewable resources in relation to potential national problems that may arise from possible changes in materials supply or utilization. Renewable resources, however, have received disproportionately small attention in spite of their current importance as industrial raw materials and their potential for the future. In recognition of this, the Science and Technology Policy Office, in support of the Science Advisor to the President, requested the National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council to conduct a study of renewable resources in meeting the nation's future material needs. In 1974, with support from the National Science Foundation, the Board on Agriculture and Renewable Resources under the Commission of Natural Resources of the National Research Council appointed the Committee on Renewable Resources for Industrial Materials (CORRIM) to conduct such a study.
