Integrated Strategies to Enable Low-Cost Biofuels
The US Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) is working to develop cost-effective strategies for producing bio-derived fuels and products and it has recently published a report summarizing the findings of a qualitative analysis to identify integrated strategies needed for more affordable biofuels.
The report outlines five key strategies needed to achieve lower fuel production costs in an integrated biorefinery and provides high-level research needs across the biofuel supply chain, including biomass production and collection, preprocessing, conversion, and end arch needs across the biofuel supply chain, including biomass production and collection, preprocessing, conversion, and end-use. For each strategy, the report highlights current research and outlines additional focus areas that can help reduce costs below their current projections.
