Biodiesel

Published November 2006

Report Abstract

The global biodiesel industry is among the fastest-growing markets the chemical industry has ever seen. World capacity, production and consumption of biodiesel grew on average by 32% per year during 2000–2005, and the industry looks set for even faster growth rates—115% per year for capacity, and 101% per year for demand—in the years to 2008 and beyond. This 548-page CEH study is a comprehensive report on the expansion of this market, and contains country-by-country forecasts to the year 2010 for production capacity, production and consumption.

Biomass Gasification

Report Abstract

Biomass is poised to provide a significant renewable source of energy and materials. Biomass in the form of forestry and agricultural residues is the oldest energy source used by mankind but was replaced by fossil fuels such as coal and petroleum. Today biomass is responsible for 11% of the energy needs globally but only 3% in the developed countries.

Fats and Oils Industry Overview

Published October 2005

Report Abstract

China, Malaysia, the United States, the European Union, Indonesia, India, Brazil and Argentina are notable fats and oils–producing countries, and China, the European Union and India are notable high-demand areas that must supplement regional production through imports. The following graph shows world production and consumption by country/region: Global fats and oils consumption will grow at an average annual rate of 4%, mainly as a result of growth in China and India. Growing economies, large populations and improving incomes will increase per capita demand for oils and fats in these countries.

Glycerin

Published November 2005

Report Abstract

The glycerin market is heavily oversupplied. Massive amounts of raw glycerin (as a by-product of biodiesel production) are overstocking the market in Western Europe, while glycerin output in Asia went up as a result of increased oleochemicals production. A combination of substantial growth in the larger applications (such as personal/oral care products, drugs, and food and beverages) as well as in the traditionally mature end uses contributed to glycerin’s consumption increase.
