Biobutanol is an attractive advanced biofuel with superior fuel properties. It fits the existing fuel infrastructure; has a higher energy density (similar to petrol/gasoline) and has shown better performance properties than ethanol and biodiesel. However, it has not yet been established in the market due to some technical and economic barriers.
A process adapted to use a wide range of lignocellulosic feedstocks and wastes (agricultural residues, organic fraction of municipal solid waste -MSW-, regionally adapted energy crops) will facilitate commercial plant supply planning with subsequent improvements in economic benefits as well as overcoming sustainability concerns. The development of rural areas is considered as a direct consequence of the successful development and implementation and scale-up of the process using locally produced versions of the above-mentioned feedstocks.
