Global Biofuels Industry Analysis & Trends 2018 – ResearchAndMarkets.com

The “Global
Biofuels Industry 2018” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s
offering.

Although biofuels are mainly used to replace or supplement the
traditional petroleum-based transportation fuels, they can also be
deployed to generate heat and electricity. Being an alternative to
fossils, biofuels can be applied to existing vehicles with little or no
engine modification. Although they release CO2 when burned in internal
combustion engines, they differ from fossil fuels partly because their
use reduces the net emission of carbon dioxide and other gases
associated with global climate change and partly because they are
biodegradable.

Biofuels have had a long history of use in the transport sector. This
began in the 1970s and early 1980s when a substantial increase in
biofuels production and use in many countries resulted from high oil
prices. But biofuels became less competitive vis–vis fossil fuels after
the collapse of oil prices in the mid-1980s, and global interest in
biofuels for transport waned considerably in the 1990s and the first
years of the 21st century.

The recent sustained increase in international oil prices has once again
highlighted the potential for biofuels to contribute to transport fuel
demand, particularly in countries that import the bulk of fossil fuel
supplies. Global concerns about the effects of fossil fuel use on the
environment, as well as recognition of the benefits of energy supply
diversification also support increasing biofuels production and use.
