Sustainability of natural resources is intertwined in many of the concerns and issues threatening the planet Earth, which are interrelated. Hence, technologies enabling sustainable resources also offer overlapping solutions for the Earth’s overall environmental sustainability. This Future Tech TOE outlines the challenges, key trends, major application sectors and enabling technologies in sustaining natural resources. The sustainability of Earth’s natural resources is threatened mainly because of the ever increasing demand for them and careless or improper use of them. Technological innovations are required to enable sustainable use of soil/land, water, energy, air, forest and wildlife, and materials and minerals. This TOE also briefly highlights several innovations and their impact in enabling sustainable resources.

The Sustainable Energy cluster provides global insights and intelligence on a wide variety of disruptive emerging technologies and platforms ranging from energy storage, advanced batteries, solar and wind energy, to unconventional oil, bioenergy, geothermal energy, and energy transmission.

Keywords: Sustainability, environment, natural resources, soil, land, water, energy, air, forest, wildlife, materials, minerals, food, food-energy-water nexus
