Biofuels review: advanced technologies overview

May 2008

Examination of development potential for second generation biofuels by 2020 - E4Tech.
In particular, this study analyzes GHG savings, development status, challenges and key players of different biofuel production paths. These include:

  • Lignocellulosic ethanol
  • Syndiesel or Biomass-to-Liquids (BTL)
  • Hydrogenation routes
  • Pyrolysis to transport fuels
  • Other advanced biofuel technologies
  • “New crops” for first generation technologies – Jatropha, cassava, sorghum
