Cellulosic ethanol is a second generation biofuel produced from lignocellulosic feedstocks, such as agricultural & forest residue, mixed biomass, energy crops and municipal solid waste. Cellulosic ethanol has evolved as a promising alternative to corn-based ethanol. The biggest advantage of cellulosic ethanol is that it is produced from non-food crops and waste biomass. Therefore, it does not hamper food security and biodiversity unlike conventional biofuels. Moreover, this fuel is eco-friendly and renders better energy efficiency over the conventional biofuel. Favourable government regulations and policies of United States and European Union are also driving the cellulosic ethanol market. However, the market is yet to witness a significant growth rate due to the high initial capital and production complexities of cellulosic ethanol. These factors could be redeemed with the technological advancements in large scale production. Therefore, research institutes and the big corporate houses are spending millions of dollars for research and development.
The global cellulosic ethanol market is segmented on the basis of feedstock and geography. In terms of feedstock, the market is segmented into agricultural residue, forest residue, energy crops, municipal solid waste (MSW) and others. Geographically, the market is segmented into Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and LAMEA.
The key players of the market are Abengoa Bioenergy, DuPont Industrial Biosciences, Beta Renewables, Mascoma, Novozymes, POET-DSM, British Petroleum, Inbicon GranBio, and INEOS Bio. These companies are adopting expansion as one of the key strategies to penetrate into the global market. For instance, GranBio has established a cellulosic ethanol demonstration facility at Brazil with a production capacity of 21.6 Million Gallon per year (MGY).
