110 Advanced Biofuels Projects Now in Development

Biofuels Digest is projecting that global advanced biofuels capacity will reach 4.003 billion gallons by 2015, based on company announcements to date. Today, the Digest released version 1.7 of its free Advanced Biofuels Tracking Database, projecting advanced biofuels capacity for the 2011-2015 period.

The new database, which is the quarterly update tracking new projects and changes in capacity announced since October, includes updates on 13 companies and their projects in Australia, Austria, Brazil, India, the Netherlands, Norway and the US.

Companies updating their guidance include Algae.Tec, Amyris, Avantium, Dupont Danisco Cellulosic Ethanol, Helios, Ignite Energy, LanzaTech, Maverick Biofuels, Neste Oil, Photon8, Praj Matrix, Qantas/Solena, Tetravitae, Velocys and Weyland /Statoil Hydro.

The database now tracks 110 advanced biofuels projects, and projects that advanced biofuels capacity will reach 718 million gallons in 2011, 1.522 billion by 2012, 2.685 billion by 2013, and 3.579 billion gallons by 2014.

The new projects are primarily pilots and demonstrations, notably the collaboration between Praj and Qteros in India, a cellulosic ethanol pilot in Pennsylvania from Helios, and a proposed 16 million gallon renewable jet fuel project under investigation by Qantas and Solena for Australia.

Major projects scheduled to come online in 2011 include: the Enerkem waste to ethanol facility in Alberta, the 8 million gallon Ineos BIO waste to ethanol project in Florida, the 10 million gallon renewable diesel project in Florida for LS9, the Neste Oil renewable diesel project in Rotterdam, and a 5 million gallon US Biofuels project in California.

Renewable drop-in fuels (renewable gasoline, and renewable diesel, and biobutanol) have climbed to 59 percent of planned advanced biofuels capacity by 2015.
