Bioethanol is renewable and eco-friendly fuel majorly produced by fermentation of sugar. Energy crops are major source of sugar, which are used for production of bioethanol. The process involved in production of bioethanol include fermentation, distillation, rectification, and dehydration. The emissions due to burning of ethanol are less volatile as compared to those produced by combustion of gasoline, which is propelling demand for manufacturing of bioethanol, in turn fueling growth of the market. However, large amount of carbon dioxide is released during manufacturing of bioethanol, which is harmful to environment, this in turn is expected to hamper growth of the market over the forecast period. Increasing demand for ecofriendly vehicles and the renewable nature of bioethanol are major factors driving growth of the bioethanol market. However, high cost associated with production of bioethanol and maintenance of manufacturing unit is restraining growth of the market.
By end user:
Bioethanol is used as a fuel for transport, power generation, feedstock in chemical industry, and manufacturing processes due to low emission and easy availability. Currently, bioethanol is blended with gasoline in varying concentrations to be used as fuel. The first generation fuels are directly produced from food crops. Second generation fuels are produced from lignocellulose and waste products, while third generation fuels are produced from feedstock such as micro algae and fourth generation fuels are produced from algae and microorganisms capable of absorbing and converting CO2 to bioethanol.
Bioethanol is better alternative to fossil fuel sources, owing to high octane value and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Increasing demand for fuel and need to reduce greenhouse gas effect is propelling growth of bioethanol market. For bioethanol to substitute petrol, the manufacturing procedure has to be more cost-effective coupled with an increase in yields and diversity of crops used. Major players operating in bioethanol market include CropEnergies, British Sugar, New Generation Biofuels Holdings, Inc., Vivergo Fuels Limited, Butalco GmbH, and Global Green SA.
