Global Biofuels Report 2023 - Global Active and Upcoming Renewable Fuels Capacity across Standalone, Co-processing and Crude Oil conversion Refineries

Dublin, Dec. 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Biofuels - Thematic Intelligence" report has been added to's offering.

Biofuels are fuels that are produced from combustion or processing of biomass - a renewable energy source. These generate a lower carbon footprint across their lifecycle, when compared with fossil fuels. Moreover, their emission footprint can be significantly reduced further by capturing CO2 during their production. Hence, biofuels, such as ethanol, biodiesel, renewable diesel, and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) are considered as alternatives to fossil fuels in decarbonizing various industries.

Renewable fuels that are produced using advanced biomass, such as wastes from agriculture, forestry, food processing, and non-edible crops, are rapidly gaining popularity among refiners globally. Besides tackling the concern of food security, these biofuels also address concerns over land availability, biodiversity loss, and price volatility due to crop failure. Nevertheless, there is further potential for technology development in processing of advanced biomass to boost renewable fuel production. The scaling up of renewable refinery capacities will help to lower the production costs in the long term, making them competitive enough to replace petroleum fuels.
