Roland Ulber, Technical University of Kaiserslautern, Germany, talks about his new book Renewable Raw Materials: New Feedstocks for the Chemical Industry. The book focuses on cradle-to-grave life cycle assessments for producing value added fuels, chemicals, and/or materials from renewable sources. It covers a wide range of perspectives, emphasizing not only the technical issues but also considering the market place and socio-economic aspects.

Roland Ulber studied chemistry at the University of Hannover, Germany, graduating in 1994. He gained his Ph.D. in 1996 from the Institute of Technical Chemistry at Hannover. He received his habilitation from the same university in 2002 and has been Professor for Bioengineering at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern since 2004.

He is involved in several national and international research projects in the area of biorefineries, and is chairman of the working group Biotechnological Use of Renewable Resources at the DECHEMA in Frankfurt, Germany. Professor Ulber's main research interest is the use of renewable resources as feedstock for chemical and biotechnological processes.
