The Non-Food Biofuel Sector Should Grow Significantly The Non-Food Biofuel Sector Should Grow Significantly

Originally Published in the ECOreport.

The biofuel industry has been enjoying a 19.6% annual growth since 2005. That is about to change. The World’s 53.2 billion gallon biofuel industry could grow to over 60 billion gallons during the next few years. Much of this will come from riskier next generation technologies.

Approximately 65.9% of global biofuel capacity

GreenEnergyPark™‘s insight:

Biofuels mainly use the C6-fraction of the biomass (sugars, starches and celluloses). This leaves the lignins and the C5-fraction (hemicelluloses), from which furfural is made. Furfural is a platform chemical for large variety of bio-renewable chemicals and bioplastics (http://j.mp/GQHGob).

Furfural has been industrially made since 1922. No risky technologies are need. It’s not rocket science: dalinyebo.com/it-s-not-rocket-science.
