Executive Summary

Cellulosic ethanol is a second generation biofuel produced from lignocelluloses, a structural material that comprises much of the mass of the plants, including grasses, wood and municipal/agricultural wastes. Cellulosic ethanol is one of the most promising advanced biofuels in terms of its potential production volumes as well as gasoline that it will replace in near future. With ongoing research and development in the field, cellulosic ethanol is expected to become an economically viable option and the use of available biomass will be intensified which will result in creating a great source of income for the biofuel industry. 

The major trends observed in the cellulosic ethanol market globally include rise in number of deals in the market, increase in government blending rate targets and reduction in enzyme costs. The U.S. is major cellulosic ethanol market with agencies working to promote the cellulosic ethanol market. Major companies producing ethanol from cellulosic materials include Novozymes, DuPont and British Petroleum. These companies are analyzed in the report with discussion on their commercialization plans and business strategies.
