Research and Markets: 2012 Research Report on Second Generation Biofuels - Featuring BioGasol, Gevo and ICM Incorporated


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Second Generation Biofuels" report to their offering.

In the last couple of years, biofuels have become a popular source of renewable energy around the world. Biofuels have also emerged as the most cost effective renewable energy resource. The availability of biofuels is not an issue and many countries have put in place various regulations and tax incentives supporting the development of the biofuels industry.

While earlier the industry witnessed a wide range of first generation biofuels such as biodiesel, vegetable oil, green diesel, and syngas, with the advancement of technology, the world has moved on towards the usage of biofuels that are made with a better product than the earlier biofuels. Now we have a whole range of second generation biofuels, third generation biofuels, and even fourth generation biofuels.

This report from Taiyou Research focuses on the Second Generation Biofuels. Second Generation Biofuels focus more on using non-food crops such as waste biomass, stalks of corn, wheat, wood, and other. Many second generation biofuels also utilize biomass to liquid technology. Cellulosic biofuels is a major second generation biofuel.

Taiyou Research's report on Second Generation Biofuels begins with a brief overview of the global biofuels industry, including industry statistics and an analysis of the future demand for biofuels and biomass.
