Replacing the Barrel

The U.S. trade deficit in petroleum products is finally shrinking. Policies that foster better fuel economy, increased oil production, and expanded use of renewable fuels have helped reduce our reliance on imported fuels from 60% in 2005 to 40% in 2012—and the trend continues.

Current Challenges in Commercially Producing Biofuels from Lignocellulosic Biomass

Biofuels that are produced from biobased materials are a good alternative to petroleum based fuels. They offer several benefits to society and the environment. Producing second generation biofuels is even more challenging than producing first generation biofuels due the complexity of the biomass and issues related to producing, harvesting, and transporting less dense biomass to centralized biorefineries.
