2nd Generation Bioethanol
Bioethanol is ethanol produced through a biomass fermentation process. Furthermore, second-generation biofuels are made from raw materials that have no impact on the food chain, i.e. from wood biomass. The technology used for the production of 2nd generation bioethanol uses the action of enzymes to convert the wooden material of biomass which, at a later stage, undergoes fermentation.
Short rotation forestry (SRF) is the quickest system (2 years) for the supply of large volumes of material for the production of 2nd generation bioethanol. Tables 1 and 2 show the clones that are currently available at our headquarters, suitable for the production for this derived product (Monviso, AF2, AF13, AF18, AF24, AF28), as well as the countries where their cultivation is feasible.
We are currently able to produce from 250,000 to 400,000 tons of base material for each establishment; such amount can be increased upon request.
