Research and Markets: Next Generation Biofuels Market 2015 - In-Depth Analysis of 90 Major Players Including Abengoa, Verenium, BP Plc., BASF, Shell & Iogen

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Next Generation Biofuels" report to their offering.

With the demand for fuel increasing globally, researchers around the world are working on making fuel from waste products like plastic bags, wood, and other sources.

Next generation biofuels have been developed to address the growing concerns of the world on the usage of food crops for fuel. Next generation biofuels do not make use of food crops or compete for land with crops. Making low cost biofuels is the entire motive of these next generation biofuel companies. Yeast, algae, bacteria, cellulose, etc., are all being used to produce fuel.

This is a comprehensive research report on the emergence of next generation biofuels.

Next generation biofuels analyzed in this report include the Second Generation Biofuels, Third Generation Biofuels, commonly known as Algal Fuels, and the fourth and yet under development generation of biofuels.

Since fourth generation biofuels are presently under development, we focus on providing a snapshot overview of the market for fourth generation biofuels.

We provide in-depth analysis of 90 major players active in the market for next generation biofuels including Abengoa, Verenium, BP Plc., BASF, Shell, Iogen, amongst others.

In conclusion, we analyze the wood ethanol market in Canada in a case study, along with various topics related to next generation biofuels such as the life cycle analysis of biofuels, production of green diesel and jet fuel range alkanes, production of distributed biofuels with fast pyrolysis, as well as an overview of first and second generation biofuels and feedstock and conversion processes.

This report on Next Generation Biofuels is a complete guide for investors as well as first-timers to the industry for getting a strategic and realistic view of the market for Next Generation Biofuels.
