Delhi, India (PressExposure) February 26, 2009 -- The US is the biggest players in the global biofuel industry. Ethanol production currently dominates the US biofuel industry but it established the strong base at the end of 2006, said, âUS Biofuel Market Analysisâ, a new research report from RNCOS.
The US biofuel industry primarily depends on corn and soybean oil for the production of biofuel, but the usage structure of both the feedstock is indicating to the feedstock shortage in future. Thus, the rising concerns for food and fuel shortage will boost up the cellulosic ethanol production in the US.
According to a Senior Research Analyst at RNCOS, most of the ethanol in the US is produced from corn. But this crop is a poor feedstock due to low yield and high fertilizer requirements which are linked to water pollution. High amount of greenhouse gases emission and expanded âdead zoneâ in the Gulf of Mexico are other environmental concerns arising from the cultivation of corn.
Considering the shortcomings of using corn for energy production, RNCOS Analyst believes that the ânext generationâ biofuels will be produced from cellulose in woody grass, trees and agriculture waste, but they will also pose environmental concerns.
Giving the current market scenario, the US government is increasingly allocating funds and enacting legislation to boost up the feedstock diversification and production. In 2008, the government passed a bill to provide US$ One Billion fund for new feedstock production and renewable energy programs. We believe that the cellulosic ethanol will grow at a CAGR of nearly 87% by the end of crop year 2017.
âUS Biofuel Market Analysisâ provides detailed information on the prevailing market trends in the US biodiesel industry. The report thoroughly evaluates the overall biodiesel industry, with segment-wise discussion on biodiesel and ethanol. It also studies the major driving forces of the US biofuel industry and highlights high growth areas to enable clients understand the leading opportunities existing in the industry.
