Abstract
Biofuels are fuels produced from any kind of biomass source, which could be the whole biomass like plants or wood, fermented biomass for biogas and biomethane or extracted products like fats and oils. There is a big variety of different fuels existing; however, the most developed fuels are bioethanol and biodiesel, which have been commercialized worldwide since over 20 years. There are many national and global mandates and incentives existing in order to promote biofuels; the main goal of these actions is the overall reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Advanced biofuels are fuels which lead to a significant reduction of greenhouse gases, e.g., fuels from waste and non-food feed-stocks or are so-called drop in-fuels which could be used in higher blends in special applications like aviation fuels. This study gives an overview on the latest developments of technology and utilization of advanced biofuels and also describes the future perspectives of biofuels. Especially the different legislations, e.g., the latest development of the European Directive of Renewable Energy are highlighted. As environmental issues like sustainability and life cycle assessment (LCA) have been discussed quite controversially, especially the food vs. fuel discussion, direct and indirect land use change, this presentation tries to evaluate the pros and cons to give a proper basis to evaluate the future potential of biofuels.
