The current state of knowledge and barriers in the areas of hydrogen generation and utilization, light hydrocarbon activation and utilization and carbon dioxide activation were discussed. The most expeditious and cost-effective means to carry out research in this field would be by close coupling of academic, industrial and national laboratory catalysis efforts worldwide. The new combinatorial and semicombinatorial means to rapidly create and screen catalyst systems are also available.
