Ethanol is chemically the same whether it is produced from corn, sugarcane, or cellulose, but the production processes are different and the necessary production technologies are in different stages of development. Cellulosic ethanol is derived from inedible parts of plants, wood and grasses. It is increasingly being used as a biofuel. In future Ethanol production form lignocellulose has advantage of abundant raw materials than other non-competing food like cane sugars and corn. On account of complex structure of biomass it is more difficult to convert it into ethanol than traditional starch substrates. However, lot of companies are investing in R&D for commercializing production process of cellulosic ethanol. This is a aiding the growth of cellulosic ethanol market.
Cellulosic ethanol is likely to emerge as a sustainable energy source in the future. Feedstocks required for cellulosic ethanol like woody biomass, corn cobs, wheat straw, and municipal waste are easily available. Cellulosic ethanol has the potential to reduce Green House Gases as compared to petroleum-based gasoline. In addition, the use of cellulosic materials to produce ethanol will also help in achieving other environmental benefits compared to corn-based ethanol
Cellulosic Ethanol is developing as subindustry within the overall biofuels market. Ethanol manufactured from cellulosic feedstock is on course to be cost competitive with the conventional corn-based ethanol. In United States three new, commercial-scale cellulosic ethanol plants are likely to resume operations. In Italy and Brazil two other advanced biofuels facilities that have already commenced operations, while many other plants others are in the pipeline. Custom harvesters and corn growers are working with biorefineries over the past few years to harvest corn stover for the production of cellulosic ethanol.
In terms of cost earlier cellulosic ethanol could not compete with corn ethanol or gasoline. A cellulosic ethanol plant is estimated to require roughly six times the capital cost or capex compared to similarly sized corn ethanol plant. Although higher investment and manufacturing costs did earlier present a considerable hurdle for commercialization. As the technology matures, future plants are expected to have lower capital costs. The current R&D initiatives aim to make cellulosic ethanol cost competitive with gasoline & corn ethanol. Hence the success of cellulosic ethanol will also depend upon achieving economies of scale. Recently a Brazilian company Raizen procured its first export order for cellulosic ethanol from Europe. Its cellulosic ethanol commanded a 26% premium over conventional ethanol prices.
The global Cellulosic Ethanol market has grown significantly during the last few years, and it is expected to grow at a rapid pace in the next five years, mainly driven by a growing demand. The global Cellulosic Ethanol market is valued at $ xx million in 2014, growing at a CAGR of XX% and is expected to reach $ xx million by 2019.
