Algae For Fuel, Algal Oil, Biofuels, Ethanol, Biodiesel And The Future
Of Petroleum And Green Energy: Global Markets, Technologies, And
Opportunities: 2009-2020 Analysis and Forecasts

Description:    This research provides an overview on what could become one of the most significant technological
                and economic events of the early 21st century: turning algae into fuel, i.e. algal oil, on a
                commercial scale. If this feat is accomplished, and it’s not certain it will be, it will have dramatic,
                disruptive consequences to oil producers, oil refiners, ethanol, biodiesel and other biofuels
                producers, biotechnology companies, agricultural producers, consumers, motor vehicle makers,
                regulators, R&D activities and investors, among others.

                However, from this change will come enormous opportunities, including less dependence on
                petroleum oil, more geopolitical independence, reductions in CO2 and global warming, technological
                advancements, very large, new industries and markets, and huge profits.

                The report provides a review of algae in terms of biology, classifications, photosynthesis and
                applications and discusses algae for fuel in terms of its history, applications, cultivation
                technologies and R&D. Analysis of the algal oil market in terms of its advantages, challenges,
                production costs, scale-up, market opportunity and sector investments is given. The biofuels
                market in terms of technology generations, market drivers, industry consolidation, next generation
                technologies, fuel standards, winners/losers, government policies, the oil majors, capital costs and
                future outlook is discussed. An analysis of the biodiesel market as regards production technology,
                end use, global production, addressable market, feedstocks, market conditions, environmental
                controversies, jatropha oil and major players is given. An analysis of the ethanol market in terms of
                first, second and third generation technologies, food vs. fuel, global production, risks and
                opportunities, government incentives and major players is provided. Profiles of 56 major players in
                the algal oil market are given and 175 biofuels, ethanol and biodiesel companies and organizations
                are discussed.
