UC Riverside researchers streamline process to make 2G ethanol competitive with 1G

UC Riverside researchers streamline process to make 2G ethanol competitive with 1G

November 16, 2017 |

In California, University of California-Riverside researchers have developed a streamlined process that could finally make the ethanol production cost from abundant second-generation plant wastes competitive with first-generation ethanol made from sugars. UCR researchers have identified a way to improve the yield of ethanol from biomass. It involves direct fermentation of solid biomass, moving straight from […]

In Wisconsin, a new study from researchers at the University of Wisconsin shows that crop expansion in the US between 2008 and 2012 emitted 115 million tons of CO2 and that much of that can be attributed to biofuels because it was during a period of policy-driven biofuel production increase. The paper says that the […]

US ethanol exports not enough to compensate for excess production

November 14, 2017 |

In Iowa, despite increased ethanol exports of 120,000 b/d of exports and 920,000 b/d in blender inputs, ethanol stocks are expected to continue building due to average production of between 1.060 million-1.080 million b/d. Between five and 13 cargoes to China are said to have been booked but there has been no confirmation. That said, […]

Philippine domestic ethanol prices fall 19% in October but still double imported

Philippine domestic ethanol prices fall 19% in October but still double imported

November 14, 2017 |

In the Philippines, the Sugar Regulatory Authority said the October ethanol reference price fell 19% on the year to 92 cents per liter thanks to lower molasses and sugarcane prices during the period. Even though prices fell, domestic ethanol is still roughly double the price of imported ethanol at $469.03/cu m CIF basis. Companies are […]
