Keywords: Biofuels and Bioenergy, fossil fuels, Ethanol, biodiesel

Biofuels and Bioenergy area unit designed to switch gas, diesel oil and coal, that area unit known as “fossil fuels” as a result of they’re made of animals and plants that died millions years ago. Biofuels area unit created largely from plants that have simply been harvested. There are three main types of biofuel. Ethanol, biodiesel, and bio jet fuel.

Scope and Importance:

Global Biofuel and Bioenergy generation has increased by 6.7% between 2015 and 2016, but global CO2 emissions are also on the rise. Biofuel and Bioenergy 2020 focuses on bringing together renewable and non-renewable energy experts, policy makers, economists, academicians and students to discuss the current state of research and development in Biofuel and Bioenergy strategies. It emphasizes talks on Economics of Renewable Energy and Non-Renewable Energy, Smart Grid Systems, Advanced Biofuel and Bioenergy Storage Materials, Nuclear Energy, Hybrid Renewable Energy Approaches, etc. to arrive at possible solutions in the near future for better development in this sector.

Biofuel is a fuel that is produced through contemporary biological processes, such as agriculture and anaerobic digestion, rather than a fuel produced by geological processes such as those involved in the formation of fossil fuels, such as coal and petroleum, from prehistoric biological matter. Biofuels can be derived directly from plants, or indirectly from agricultural, commercial, domestic, and/or industrial wastes. Renewable biofuels generally involve contemporary carbon fixation, such as those that occur in plants or microalgae through the process of photosynthesis. Bioenergy is renewable energy made available from materials derived from biological sources. Biomass is any organic material which has stored sunlight in the form of chemical energy. As a fuel, it may include wood, wood waste, straw, manure, sugarcane, and many other by-products from a variety of agricultural processes.

Strategies for developing the biofuels market:

The current phase of development of biofuels is driven by governments which have recognized the triple challenges of climate change, energy security and rural development. The significance of this phase, compared to the rapid phase of development of ethanol in Brazil in the 1970s, is that the issues are now global. Incentives or mandates for biofuels are being developed across the world from Europe to New Zealand, as well as in China, Southern Africa and Indonesia for instance. Different players in the biofuels industry are likely to have many strategies. We can imagine two fundamental strategic options: “watch and wait” which reacts to the mandates for biofuels; or “drive the market” where investments are made to enable taking a better competitive position in a growing industry. BP has not adopted the “watch and wait” strategy; instead we want to ensure our business meets the changing needs of our customers and stakeholders–be they motorists at the pump or government partners with whom we work to develop oil businesses. The demand for biofuels is not just a desire of policy makers, but is reflected in surveys of the general public – the consumer. Of the Europeans surveyed, 47% say they would be prepared to pay more for a vehicle that ran on biofuels, and 41% would be prepared to pay a little more for biofuels. BP’s strategy has involved the formation of a dedicated business unit to pursue opportunities across the value chain from accessing feedstock, through conversion to trading and marketing.
