Congress Report/Meetings Congress Report COCVER-UNESCO Expert Council for Rational Utilization of Renewable Vegetable Materials ' August 31-September 5,1992, St. Petersburg, Russia The second meeting of the UNESCO appointed expert Council took place at the St. Petersburg Forest Academy. The Council was formed in September 1991. The international Council consists now of 14 members chosen from experts in varied fields of utilization and conversion of renewable celiulosic materials. The membership consists of the Professors Akim (Russian Pulp and Paper Institute), Chen (South China University of Technology), Crescenzi (University of Rome), Gandini (National Polytechnic Institute, Grenoble), Gellerstedt (STFI, Stockholm), Gratzl (North Carolina State University, Raleigh), Higuchi (Ninon University), Holmbom (Abo Academy), Karlivan (Institute Wood* Chemistry, Riga), Kingson (UNESCO), Paszner (University of British Columbia), Schurz (University of Graz), Wegener (University of Munich) and Zarubin (Chair, St. Petersburg Forest Academy). The mandate of the Council was initially defined as providing expert guidance for policy making, furthering of advanced research and world-wide cooperation in the selection of raw materials, promotion and development of conversion technologies and widespread utilization of renewable-based chemicals and products to replace fossil-based materials in the future. The mandate of the Council is part of the Botany 2000 program, a much broader effort of UNESCO. The result of four days of presentation and discussions during this year's meeting was a three point resolution encompassing aspects of 1) biosynthesis, structure and properties of raw materials 2) chemical processes, bioprocesses, biotechnology and ecology 3) substances and materials from vegetal resources outlining areas, needing detailed attention at the present time. Council members are requested to publicize these activities of the. Council, foster cooperative research and solicit support worldwide. The Council identified pressing problems in the areas of pulping, bleaching, wood hydrolysis, biological conversion and polymer and minor wood components (extractives) utilization.These resolutions have now been approved by UNESCO assuring continued activity by the Council.
