Talking about second generation (of biofuels)

A home-grown, waste-fed biofuels market could be an environmental opportunity, as well as solving some economic and fuel security issues. New, “second-generation” biofuel production technologies developed around the world are being assessed for their technical and economic feasibility.

For the past few years, scientists from CSIRO’s Energy Transformed flagship have been researching biomass production suited to second-generation conversion technologies, and current sustainability issues and economic scenarios. They have found that it may be economically feasible to produce and use biofuels from available residue and waste streams in Australia.
