With the demand for fuel increasing globally, researchers around the world are working on making fuel from waste products like plastic bags, wood, and other sources.

Next generation biofuels have been developed to address the growing concerns of the world on the usage of food crops for fuel. Next generation biofuels do not make use of food crops or compete for land with crops. Making low cost biofuels is the entire motive of these next generation biofuel companies. Yeast, algae, bacteria, cellulose, etc., are all being used to produce fuel.

Taiyou Research presents a comprehensive research report on the emergence of next generation biofuels.

Next generation biofuels analyzed in this report include the Second Generation Biofuels, Third Generation Biofuels, commonly known as Algal Fuels, and the fourth and yet under development generation of biofuels.

Here's what all the report Next Generation Biofuels contains:

- Explaining what next generation biofuels are, this report undertakes an analysis of the technological developments for next generation biofuels, advantages of next generation biofuels, and the challenges facing the industry.

- An analysis of the use of renewable feedstocks for biofuels and the new emerging market for lignocellulosic biofuels - perhaps the most common type of second generation biofuels being used commercially today.

- The potential of biomass in the world along with the technical considerations for next generation biofuels. This includes an analysis of productions procedures, economical considerations, and environmental considerations as well.

Moving on to the section on second generation biofuels, Taiyou Research’s report on Next Generation Biofuels covers the following:

- An introduction to what are second generation biofuels, along with the technologies involved, conversion routes and composition of biomass.

- The impact of the worldwide economic recession on the second generation biofuels market is discussed.

- Feedstocks used for producing second generation biofuels such as bioethanol, black liquor, energy crops, methane, and green waste are analyzed.

- Technologies that are used for the production of second generation biofuels. Technologies analyzed in the report include biochemistry, co-current fixed bed, counter-current fixed bed, entrained flow gasifier, fluidized bed reactor, gasification, pyrolysis, and torrefaction.

- The different types of second generation biofuels are analyzed including BioDME, bioethanol, biobutanol, biohydrogen, biomethanol, wood diesel, amongst others.

- Growth drivers like regulatory support, blending mandates, etc., are analyzed as they support the growth of the market for second generation biofuels.

- An in-depth analysis of lignocellulosic biofuels, lignocellulosic ethanol, synthetic biofuels, and biohydrogen.

- The role of biorefineries in the production of next generation biofuels is also covered.

- The environmental impact of second generation biofuels is analyzed, along with the role of biotechnology in the industry.

- Commercial investment in second generation biofuels and the transition from first generation to second generation is looked at in the report.

- Pilot projects for second generation biofuels such as biochemical ethanol and biorefinery projects and thermochemical BTL demonstration projects are analyzed.

- A country-wise analysis of second generation markets is included. Countries analyzed include: Brazil, China, India, Mexico, South Africa, and Thailand.

The section on third generation biofuels or algal fuels includes the following:

- An introduction to algal fuels including the kinds of fuels that are produced from algae such as biobutanol, biodiesel, ethanol, straight vegetable oil, and jet fuel.

- How algae can be used as an energy source and the production of biological hydrogen from algae is analyzed.

- Investment in the industry and a market analysis of algal fuel developments in the US and Europe.

- Technical process for fuel production from algae.

- Advantages of fuel production from algae as well as the challenges facing the development of third generation biofuels.

- The production of microalgal biomass and the direct liquefaction of algae for biodiesel production is also analyzed.

Since fourth generation biofuels are presently under development, we focus on providing a snapshot overview of the market for fourth generation biofuels.

We provide in-depth analysis of 90 major players active in the market for next generation biofuels including Abengoa, Verenium, BP Plc., BASF, Shell, Iogen, amongst others.

In conclusion, we analyze the wood ethanol market in Canada in a case study, along with various topics related to next generation biofuels such as the life cycle analysis of biofuels, production of green diesel and jet fuel range alkanes, production of distributed biofuels with fast pyrolysis, as well as an overview of first and second generation biofuels and feedstock and conversion processes.

Taiyou Research’s report on Next Generation Biofuels is a complete guide for investors as well as first-timers to the industry for getting a strategic and realistic view of the market for Next Generation Biofuels.
