Report on the Status of Advanced Biofuels Demonstration Facilities in 2012

Report on the 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 and how to convert it, up to which fuel to produce. This report monitors the multi-facetted development, adds transparency to the sector and thus supports the development and deployment of advanced biofuels production technologies.
