|Status of Advanced Biofuels Demonstration Facilities in 2012
A number of companies around the world pursue projects to develop and deploy advanced technologies for the production of biofuels. Plenty of options are available, e.g. on which feedstock to use, how to pretreat it ...
|IEA Technology Roadmap. Bioenergy for Heat and Power
This roadmap further develops past IEA analysis in line with the forthcoming Energy Technology Perspectives 2012. The ETP 2012 2°C Scenario (ETP 2DS) sets out cost effective strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the ...
|Poor people's energy outlook 2012
This second edition of the Poor people’s energy outlook (PPEO) shines a spotlight on energy access and its impact on the ability of the world’s poorest people to earn a decent living. Its release is ...
|Global impacts of European agricultural and biofuel policies
Food supply and food distribution have been and are important issues in the global political arena. The recent emergence of biofuel policies has increased the influence of the policy arena on agricultural production. In this ...
|The Energy Report – 100% renewable energy by 2050
WWF has a vision of a world that is powered by 100 per cent renewable energy sources by the middle of this century. Unless we make this transition, the world is most likely to avoid ...
|Advanced biofuel technologies - Status and barriers
Large-scale production of crop based (first generation) biofuels may not be feasible without adversely affecting global food supply or encroaching on other important land uses. Because alternatives to liquid fossil fuels are important to develop ...
|Current status and potential for algal biofuels production
It seems probable that growth in human population, future climate change effects on freshwater resources, which are already stressed in some regions, and eventual shortages of unutilized arable land will encourage the exploitation of microalgae ...
|Algae-based biofuels: applications and co-products
The possible competition for land makes it impossible to produce enough first generation biofuel to offset a large percentage of the total fuel consumption for transportation. As opposed to land-based biofuels produced from agricultural feedstocks, ...
|Renewables 2010 – Global Status Report
Changes in renewable energy markets, investments, industries, and policies have been so rapid in recent years that perceptions of the status of renewable energy can lag years behind the reality. This report captures that reality ...
|A USDA regional roadmap to meeting the biofuels goals of the Renewable Fuels Standard by 2022
As part of that larger conversation, USDA’s objectives for this report include: providing the practical knowledge from the field that can enhance various models for biofuel production, identify challenges and opportunities, and help develop solutions ...
