    ” Wow, look what a monster recession did to our industrial energy consumption”

    High prices helped a lot as well. Oil prices roughly tripled from the first half of the 00′s to the last few years. Natural gas prices have been all over the place but for a period of several years were very high, driving efficiency improvements. I would say a general atmosphere of energy conciousness has been a factor as well.

    This graph is very bad sign for industrial development. Just because of that the prices of commodity are rise suddenly.

    Clearly chemical corporations exists to make money. The chemical industry already has a very strong traditional reason to move towards less energy intensive approaches based on its primary motivating factor- profit. Many are looking hard at genetically modified microbes to produce a wide range of chemical products with an eye on reducing cost of manufacture and, of course, less toxic waste to manage. This approach where applicable is a natural win-win.
