Herbaceous energy crops being developed from non-edible sources wonâ€™t affect food prices, unlike first-generation biofuels says Chad Ian Lieberman
Online PR News – 07-October-2015 – New York, New York City – â€śBiofuels are a welcome addition to our energy resources, given that today we are all about reducing emissions and carbon footprints as a result of human activity. The first biofuels, however, resulted in a hike in food prices globally. We are looking at the potential of the next generation of biofuels, majorly the production of cellulosic ethanol.â€ť
This was Chad Liebermanâ€™s introductory statement during a recently held technology and energy peer discussion hosted by the technology expert, entrepreneur and futurist in New York City. â€śThe new generation of biofuels will be produced from non-edible plant sources, and research is on-going into various options.â€ť
Mr. Lieberman described steps begin taken by scientists to research into the production of cellulosic ethanol from non-food sources like corner stover, woodchips, switch grass and miscanthus, among others.
â€śBiofuel adoption will contribute to mitigation of climate change, energy price stability and energy production sustainability among other gains. By using crop residues that otherwise just go to waste, we can increase the available sources for biofuel production.â€ť
He further described that the technology has been constrained by the limited agricultural land from which biofuel sources could be grown, explaining venturing into non-edible sources reduces competition for land and gains more sources for biofuel production.
â€śCurrently, energy company DuPont is at advanced stages in the development of cellulosic ethanol using corn stover in particular. Many other companies are also researching other crop residues and perennial grasses like miscanthus and switchgrass,â€ť chad ian lieberman explained.
He further stated that the herbaceous energy crops would give higher yield of biofuel with higher nutrient use efficiency and similar growing conditions comparable to those required for corn. They also come with other positive effects on the environment.
In conclusion, chad lieberman stated that herbaceous energy crops that would be adapted for second generation biofuel production should successfully compete as fuels and as crops. The cellulosic biofuels produced as a result would also have to compete favorably with fossil fuels and corn-based ethanol. This will likely differ for different geographical locations.
