Latest Trends from Chicken Feathers to Plastic Bags to Create the NG Biofuel
Advanced biofuels are the latest trend in the biofuels industry these days. Scientists all over the world are trying to create fuel from the unlikeliest of materials. Waste materials, chicken feathers, plastic bags, wood, and many other sources are being used to create a next generation of biofuels known as advanced biofuels.
Advanced biofuels are being looked at as an alternative to food crops that are being used as biofuels currently. Companies producing advanced biofuels are looking at a low cost option for producing fuel. Some of these options include algae, bacteria, yeast, and cellulose, amongst others.
The growing industry of advanced biofuels in its research report Analyzing Advanced Biofuels.
The report begins with an analysis of the basics of biofuels. In this section the report analyzes the background of biofuels, major biofuels, uses of biofuels, etc. The report also analyzes the three types of biofuels, namely, liquid biofuels, solid biofuels, and gas biofuels. The economics of biofuels and the impact of biofuels on various aspects of human life is looked at. Impact on policies, environmental and economic impact, as well as the impact on engines and rural development are analyzed.
Moving to section 2 of the report, he publisher begins an analysis of advanced biofuels with a definition of advanced biofuels. The advantages of advanced biofuels, technical developments, and the developmental challenges facing the industry are discussed.
Technology obviously plays a very important role in this field and the report takes a look at the technical features of advanced biofuels through an analysis of the manufacturing processes, production of lignocellulosic bioethanol, production of synthetic biofuels, production of biohydrogen, etc.
The emergence of lignocellulosic biofuels as an important segment of advanced biofuels is discussed along with the production of lignocellulosic biomass.
Moving to section 3, the report analyzes second generation biofuels.
Conversion routes, biomass composition, second generation biofuel technologies, and the GHG emissions from second generation biofuels are analyzed. The different types of second generation biofuels analyzed in this report include bioDME, bioethanol and biobutanol, biohydrogen, biomethanol, DMF, Fischer-Tropsch fuels, hydro thermal upgrading (HTU), mixed alcohols, and wood diesel.
Second generation biofuel feedstocks that are analyzed in this report include bioethanol, black liquor, lignocellulosic energy crops, gas biomatter (methane), and green waste.
The publisher carries out a technological analysis of second generation biofuels that includes a look at biochemistry, co-current fixed bed, counter-current fixed bed, entrained flow gasifier, fluidized bed reactor, and others.
The impact of the economic recession on the market for second generation biofuels is analyzed, followed by an analysis of the factors driving growth of second generation biofuels.
The publisher carries out an in-depth analysis of lignocellulosic biofuels, lignocellulosic ethanol, synthetic biofuels, and biohydrogen in this research offering.
Section 3 analyzes third generation biofuels or algal fuels.
The section explores the technologies involved in the process of converting algae into biofuel, the advantages and disadvantages of algae, the challenges facing the industry in commercializing this technology and much more. A section on algae and carbon capture along with the scenarios of regulated versus unregulated carbon marketplace is further included in this research report.
The section also takes a look at the potential competition that algal development faces in this particular field, that is, from petroleum, unconventional fossil fuels, and other biofuels.
Challenges facing third generation biofuels is also discussed.
Section 4 is a brief profile of fourth generation biofuels as these are still under development and not much information is available at the moment.
Section 5 analyzes the major players in the field of advanced biofuels such as Abengoa Bioenergy, Air Liquide, AlgaeLink, Amyris Biotech, Algaewheel, Archer Daniels, Aquaflow Bionomic, BASF SE, Blue Marble Energy, and many more.
