Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come in the September/October issue of Biofuels International
For all of our subscribers out there, the September/October issue of Biofuels International magazine will soon arrive at your desks. This issue is full to the brim with interviews and technical articles from those in the know, including Boeing, Airbus, Honeywell, Butamax, Novozymes and Incbio, to name just a few.
Asia has been a hive of activity in 2014 and we have got it covered by delving into the region's evolution over the past 12 months.
We spoke to a number of Asian biofuels producers to discuss the current status and developments affecting biofuels producers, consultants and industry experts. Dr Elspeth Thomson, senior fellow and head of the Energy and the Environment Division at the National University of Singapore provided a welcome overview of first generation biofuels activity in the region. Kosona Chriv, managing director, Smart International Consulting believes its continued growth is the result of 'the export of biofuels from Asian nations' and expects this to 'continue to increase in the coming years'. Praj's founder Pramod Chaudhari says the regions surge in second generation production 'will soon be followed by an increase in biorefineries and other municipal solid waste processing'.
With Teck Guan building the world's first empty fruit bunch-fed ethanol plant in Malaysia, and M&G establishing the world's largest cellulosic biorefinery in China, Asia is closing its gap with the US and Europe.
September/October's topics have caught the eye of a considerable number of biofuels producers and industry experts, looking to contribute their expertise and stories on developments in aviation, biobutanol, transportation and distribution, and heat exchange energy efficiency.
