The Big Bagasse Biofuels Boom

Submitted by on October 24, 2012 – 11:05 amNo Comment

by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest)  Deployment of next-gen bagasse-to-biofuels technologies could expand ethanol production in Brazil, India by 35 percent without land, water intensification.

…Guidance being given by the projects is that capacities could increase by up to 35 percent at existing mills, by adding on units to process bagasse. In Brazil, that would add up to 2.5 billion gallons (9.45 billion liters) in production capacity – more than enough to close the 1 billion liter ethanol gap that exists in Brazil of late, and open up substantial ethanol export opportunities in Brazil.

In India, additional production would likely contribute towards Indian renewable fuels targets, where industry has struggled to develop sufficient capacity given sugar demand, limits on use of food-based feedstocks, and policy uncertainty.

…We see five trends driving the development of bagasse.
