Market Analysis - Biofuels Congress 2017

Biofuels Congress 2017

(Theme: Integration of Advanced Biofuels in the Circular Economy)


The perception of biofuels has prevailed since the invention of the motor vehicle. For example, at the dawn of the 20th century, Henry Ford planned to power his Model Ts using ethanol, and initial diesel engines consumed peanut oil for running. With the discovery of immense petroleum deposits, gasoline and diesel was accessible reasonably, thereby confiding biofuels to the background. Nonetheless, the recent surge in oil prices, added with mounting worries related to global warming linked with carbon dioxide (CO2), emissions have culminated in the re-emergence of biofuels as feasible alternatives. Biofuel is manufactured using a wide range of resources. This variety has grown notably in recent years, aiding shape a dexterous industry that is steadily searching for new technologies and feedstock. In fact, industry demand for reasonable, candid sources of fats and oils is bracing promising research on advanced feedstock such as Algae and Camelina. With more than a decade of commercial-scale production, the industry takes pride in its meticulous approach to improvement and strong target on sustainability. Production has risen from around 25 million gallons in the early 2000s to about 1.7 billion gallons advanced biofuel in 2014. With projected feedstock availability, the industry has settled a goal of manufacturing about 10 percent of the diesel transportation market by 2022. The industry’s economic impact is hovered to thrive significantly with pursued production increases. The industry backs jobs in diverse sectors, from manufacturing to transportation, agriculture and service. Biodiesel is produced using a broad variety of resources. We welcome you, on behalf of the Organizing Committee, to this exemplary meeting with eminent scientists from different countries around the globe and sharing new and intriguing conclusions in Biodiesel production and usage, which will be held in London from September 07-09, 2017. This inspiring and enlightening conference program including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops on a variety of topics, poster presentations and various programs for participants from all over the world.

Market analysis of Biofuels:

The demand for biofuels is growing enormously. From the evidence available today, we believe that biofuels could, with developments in technology and favorable policy constitute up to 30% of the world transport fuel mix by 2030. The advantages of biofuels – whether in greenhouse gas benefits, energy security or rural development-mean that many governments are keen to foster the industry through current phases of technology development to deliver material scale and reduced costs. Our belief is that the industry can be developed sustainably, provided appropriate feedstock’s are grown, which do not adversely compete with food, using good land management to minimize environmental impact. This will require development of appropriate sustainability standards; it will not be easy, but by engaging in the industry, responsible businesses will work out appropriate business models and want to see enforcement of standards across the industry. This paper sets out the characteristics of the global fuels market, the significance of joint industry studies with car manufacturers and the choices around land use that society must make. The approach taken by BP is then described whereby guiding principles have been defined to set the boundaries of our impact on ecosystems.

Characteristics of the biofuels market: its size and growth rate:

The world is in a state of biofuels fever. In 2006 biofuel constituted 49 bnliters, or 3%, of the 1,600 billion litre market for gasoline and diesel fuel. By 2015 the biofuels market is likely to have tripled to 155 billion litres. In practical terms that is an increase of around 10 billion liters per year over ten years. In terms of current ethanol yields of 5,250ltrs / ha, this equates to an increase of land use for biofuels of approximately 17,000 square km per year. The bulk of the global demand for ethanol and biodiesel comes from a few major regions. The USA accounted for very nearly 50% of global ethanol consumption in 2006, with Brazil taking 36% of global volumes. The EU accounted for 75% of global biodiesel consumption in 2006. The reason why we believe the feverish rate of growth is likely to materialize is because, with no carbon beneficial substitutes available in the near term, biofuels are being promoted by governments. Clear examples of this are the trends of regulations in the EU, and the intentions announced in the US. BP is already a major player in the global biofuels market. In 2006 BP blended 3,016 million liters of ethanol into gasoline – a 25% increase on the previous year. Thus BP is already well exposed to the biofuels fever – and the theme of this paper is to suggest how the industry can tap the heat of the fever in a positive sense.
