Government Blending Mandates Drive Bioethanol Demand

This market insight analyses the use of biomass in Africa for the production of industrial and fuel ethanol. After a brief overview of the global bioethanol market, the study focuses on the African market, as well as selects raw materials used in bioethanol production. These raw materials include maize, sorghum, and sugarcane. A detailed overview of each raw material is given in terms of regional availability, production yield and producer prices. Drivers and restraints, and total African market forecast are included. The study also provides strategic conclusions based on analysis of raw materials, bioenergy land potential and bioethanol demand trends.

Project Scope
Key Aim
To provide an overview of the potential for bioethanol production in Africa

Project Scope
The research focuses on first-generation ethanol produced from biomass (referred to as bioethanol) for the fuel and industrial applications.

Key Project Objectives
This research discusses the following outcomes. It:
- Provides a brief overview of the global bioethanol market.
- Focuses on the potential for bioethanol production in Africa.
- Identifies key drivers and restraints associated with the African bioethanol industry.
- Analyses feedstock trends for bioethanol production.
- Provides a bioethanol demand forecast for Africa.

Market Introduction
Bioethanol is an alcohol fuel prepared from the sugars sourced from grains such as maize, sorghum, barley, sugarcane, rice, potato skins and yard clippings. Bioethanol is widely known as a substitute fuel for
gasoline and is also blended with gasoline in transportation applications.

Desired Properties of Bioethanol
- It undergoes combustion with the production of water and carbon dioxide.
- It is a high-octane fuel.
- It is biodegradable.
- It can be blended with gasoline and results in complete combustion thus, less emissions.
- It has lower toxicity levels and, therefore, it is safe.

Desired Properties of Fuel—A Comparison Between Bioethanol and Conventional Fuel
- High Octane Number refers to the ability of the fuel to withstand high compression before ignition. High octane number fuels are suitable for sophisticated gasoline engines. It also helps to prevent cylinder
knocking and premature ignition which are common problems with higher octane number fuels. Bioethanol has a relatively high octane number than conventional fuel, making it suitable to blend with gasoline to cut down fuel cost
