Track 1: Production of Biofuels
As a renewable energy source, biofuels have great potential. They are made by converting plants, algae, or animal waste into fuels. Biodiesel is thought to be a renewable energy source as such feedstock materials can be readily restocked, Unlike other renewable energy sources like petroleum, coal, and gas, biomass can be converted directly into liquid fuels, called "biofuels," to help meet transportation fuel necessities. Biofuel technology labeled into 3 generations. The two most common types of biofuels in use nowadays are ethanol and biodiesel, both of which imply the first generation of biofuel technology. Cellulosic biomass which comes from perennial grasses is used for the production of second generation biofuels. Algae is used for the production of third generation biofuels.
Here are 6 of the best biofuels :
Sugarcane as a high-energy fuel, comes from tropical regions, where it is mostly grown. Sugar cane juice is distilled into bioethanol, which is used for vehicles. The residues, known as bagasse, and cane straw can also be burned as fuel.
Palm oil is refined, bleached, and deodorized (RBD) to make biodiesel, it is heated with excess methanol along with a catalyst.
Rapeseed oil is the most important raw material for biodiesel. Normally, two and a half tons of rapeseed are ground into three tons of oil, which is then transported to a biodiesel plant. Once that is done, the oil is processed further at the plant. In order to process crude rapeseed oil, it must be decontaminated. The process of converting it into biodiesel takes place automatically in large tanks after the impurities are removed.
Wood a process for converting poplar trees' wood into biofuels and bio based chemicals through the use of heat, bacteria, and chemical reactions. Cellulosic biomass is released into sugars through this process. A variety of biofuels and biobased chemicals can be produced from sugar once it becomes available.
Soybeans oil is now an necessary supply of biodiesel manufacturing. A reaction of vegetable oils or animal fats with methanol or ethanol in the presence of sodium hydroxide is the most prevalent technique of biodiesel production.
Algae under certain growth circumstances, several algae species may create hydrogen gas. Algal biomass can be burnt like wood or anaerobically digested to produce methane biogas, which can be used to generate heat and power.
Track 2: Biomass
Biomass undergoes fermentation process for turning to ethanol (biofuel). Microorganisms (such as bacteria and yeast) digest plant carbohydrates and generate ethanol during fermentation.
Track 3: Bioenergy
Bioenergy is one of many different options available to help us fulfill our demand for energy. This is derived from presently residing natural materials known as biomass, which may be used to provide transportation fuels, warmth, power, and products.
Track 4: Bioalcohol And Ethanol
Bioalcohol may be simply described as alcohols constituted of biological assets or biomass. Bioethanol, this is the maximum essential alternative gas for spark ignition engines, is the most widely recognized and produced bioalcohol. Bioalcohols can be produced from a extensive variety of biomass, which includes vegetation, lignocellulosic plants or residues, and food waste.
Ethanol is a sustainable fuel manufactured from a variety of plant elements referred to collectively as "biomass". Ethanol is an alcohol that is blended into gasoline to boost octane and reduce smog-causing pollutants like carbon monoxide. E10 (10 percent ethanol, 90% gasoline) is the most popular ethanol mix, and it is permitted for use in most conventional gasoline-powered cars up to E15 (15 percent ethanol, 85 percent gasoline). Some cars, known as flexible fuel vehicles, are built to operate on E85 (a gasoline-ethanol blend comprising 51–83 percent ethanol, depending on area and season), an alternative fuel with significantly greater ethanol content than ordinary gasoline. In the United States, ethanol is found in around 97 percent of gasoline.
Track 5: Biogas
Biogas is a naturally occurring biofuel that is formed when organic matter decomposes in the absence of oxygen. It is produced by the anaerobic digestion of organic waste in an oxygen-free environment, such as a biomass plant. This option promotes the decomposition of organic materials, resulting in the production of biogas. Biogas is the naturally occurring combination of gases that includes methane (50-75 percent), carbon dioxide (25-45 percent), water (2-8 percent), and hydrogen sulphide. It is utilised in the same manner as natural gas, and until recently, it was mostly used for lighting and cooking rather than generating power.
One of the most appealing aspects of biogas is that it may be made from a variety of waste sources, including: Agricultural byproducts, Plant waste from fruits and vegetables Food waste, Sewage, Manure from animals (pig, hen, cow), Waste from distilleries and breweries, Garbage from landfills Waste from the forestry industry.
Track 6: New Developments in Renewable Chemicals
Track 7: Butanol and Bioethers:
Bioethers wheat or sugar beet are used to make bioether. It may also be created from the leftover glycerol from biodiesel production. Bioether is expected to replace petro-ether as a complement to current fossil fuels.
Track 8: Biodiesel
Biodiesel such as fresh and old vegetable oil and animal fat, is used to make biodiesel, a cleaner alternative to petroleum-based diesel fuel. By mixing vegetable oil, animal fat, or recycled cooking grease with alcohol, biodiesel is produced. The fuel is biodegradable and harmless. In a compression ignition (diesel) engine, biodiesel is used similarly to petroleum-based diesel. The blend ratio for biodiesel can be adjusted, from B100 (pure biodiesel) to B20 (the most common mixture) (a blend containing 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent petroleum diesel).
Track 9: Solid Biofuels
Solid Biofuels are organic, non-fossil materials of biological origin (often referred to as biomass) that may be utilised as a source of heat or energy. Solid biofuels are defined as a product aggregate consisting of charcoal, fuelwood, wood residues and by-products, black liquor, bagasse, animal waste, other vegetal materials and residuals, and the renewable part of industrial waste, according to energy data.
Track 10: Cropwaste
Agricultural wastes make up a large portion of lignocellulose biomass, which may be used as a feedstock for biofuel production (bioethanol, biobutanol, biogas, biohydrogen, and biodiesel). Agricultural waste comprises trash from the processing of agroproducts, sustaining animals, and distributing fruits and vegetables, in addition to residuals from agriculture. The hulls and shells of chitinous and peafruit have been removed from the field's leaves, straw, and husks after harvest. During crop processing at the mills, as well as animal faeces, are considered agricultural residue. There are a limited number of crop residues that can be used as biomass fuels.
Track 11: Syngas and Algal Biofuels
Gasification is the most common process for creating syngas from biomass feedstocks. Despite the fact that gasification processes can take many different shapes. Syngas is used for biofuel production as a fermentation feedstock (carbon and energy source).
Carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids/natural oils are the three primary components of algal biomass. Microalgae are the only emphasis in the algae-to-biodiesel arena because the majority of the natural oil produced by microalgae is tricylglycerol, which is the correct sort of oil for creating biodiesel.
Track 12: Green diesel and Biomethanol
Green diesel the molecular structure of green diesel is similar to petroleum diesel, but with improved properties compared to petroleum diesel. Alternative fuels are made using this component. Using hydrogen and hydrotreating, green diesel was made by treating vegetable oil triglycerides with hydrogen.
The use of readily accessible virgin and waste biomasses as feedstock for gaseous (bio-gas) and liquid fuels (bio-methanol, bio-ethanol, and bio-butanol) production is being explored as a sustainable and feasible alternative to fossil fuels (coal, natural gas and petro-fuels like gasoline and diesel). Biomethanol is being investigated as an appealing liquid fuel as well as a feedstock for the synthesis of a variety of important organic chemicals that are now derived from coal, natural gas, and petroleum feedstocks. Methanol can be utilised in fuel cell cars since it degrades fully into CO2 and water when exposed to steam. M85, a blend of 85% methanol and 15% gasoline, may be utilised in current cars without requiring substantial technological changes. Gasification or pyrolysis are two methods for producing bio methanol. It is produced in greater quantities by gasification than by pyrolysis.
Track 13: Biorefineries
A biorefinery is a plant that combines biomass conversion methods and equipment to create fuels, electricity, and chemicals from agricultural, forest, and waste feedstock. Currently, four different kinds are being discussed: Biorefineries based on sugar - Biorefineries that use the entire crop - Lignocellulose biorefineries - Green biorefineries.
Track 14: Nanotechnology in Biofuels
Enzymes are employed in the trans esterification process to make biodiesel from a variety of plant oils and algae. To enhance the number of cycles, enzymes are immobilised on glass beads, nanostructures, and other surfaces.When enzymes are immobilised in nanostructures, they have a longer halflife than when they are immobilised on ordinary substrates. Because of two factors, nanostructures are employed to immobilise enzymes. It greatly enhances the surface area available for immobilisation, resulting in nanostructures with a high enzyme loading capacity and Shows a considerable increase in the stability of the immobilisation enzyme.
Track 15: Renewable Energy
Renewable energy is defined as an energy resource that can be naturally replenished or regenerated over a short period of time and is derived directly or indirectly from the sun, wind, hydropower, bioenergy, or other natural resource systems (geothermal energy, tidal energy). The natural processes that generate renewable energy are continually renewed. Examples include sunlight, fire, wind energy, tides, water, and many forms of biomass. This energy never runs out and is supplied on a regular basis.
Track 16: Investors meet with entrepreneurs
The meeting/conference Biofuels 2022 creates a global platform to connect entrepreneurs, proposers, and investors in the fields of biogas, bioenergy, biofuels, biomass, renewable energy, and related sciences. It also provides a fresh platform for transforming promising ideas into good business. This investment meeting makes it easier for participants to engage in productive conversations, in-depth research, and effective business implementation.
During the period 2021-2027, the biofuels market is predicted to develop at a CAGR of less than 8%. The need for biofuels is likely to rise as the world seeks a secure, sustainable, and clean energy source. The global use of biofuel is predicted to expand at a substantial rate throughout the forecast period, owing to increased regulations for biofuel blending in vehicle fuels and increased government backing for eco-friendly alternatives.
Global energy consumption is anticipated to rise by 28 percent between 2015 and 2040, according to projections. To address the ever-increasing need for fuel, the growing environmental requirement is to turn to cleaner, renewable, and sustainable energy sources. Renewable energy will be the world's fastest-growing energy source, doubling in size between 2015 and 2030.
Biofuels (ethanol and biodiesel) account for the vast bulk of renewable energy used in vehicle transport. Blending mandates in major nations and continued fuel consumption throughout the world promote demand for bioenergy in the transportation industry.
Furthermore, innovative liquid biofuels made from lignocellulosic, waste oil, fats, and municipal waste are a feasible solution for decarbonizing energy sectors.
According to the IEA's Tracking Transport report, transportation biofuel output increased by more than 6% year over year in 2019, with a forecast 3% annual growth rate over the following five years. However, it falls short of meeting the Sustainable Development Goals until 2030 when a ten percent growth rate is necessary.
As a result of rising transportation fuel demand and government support for sustainable energies in ASEAN countries, energy security is visibly improved, assuring demand for agricultural commodities. During the past decade, Chinese vendors have increased our national ethanol production capacity by 258 million liters to 5,258 million litres, in order to implement a 10% ethanol blend into gasoline in 11 to 15 provinces.
By 2040, biofuels are expected to account for 20% of road transport in the OECD. Biofuels' percentage of jet fuel in the industrialised world is predicted to rise to 20% by 2040, comparable to what is happening in aviation. However, despite rising use of alternative fuels, according to BP's Energy Outlook, oil will continue to dominate the transportation industry. It goes on to say that oil's dominance of the transportation industry will fall to around 85% by 2040, down from 94 percent now.
By 2040, natural gas, electricity, and biofuels will account for more than half of the growth in energy used in transportation, with each contributing around 5% of demand.
However, according to a recent IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency) study on advanced biofuels, the biggest roadblock to the growth of the biofuel market is the lack of stable regulations for the use of liquid biofuels, which surveyed experts on the major obstacles for scaling up liquid biofuels. Furthermore, as a result of the fall in patent filings, investments have decreased from USD 27 billion in 2007 to USD 2 billion in 2017.
