China's Leadership in the Commercialization of Bioethanol

  1. 1. CAS[1] Chemistry Research Report China Takes Lead in the Commercialization of Bioethanol Wildan Maulana wildan.m@openthinklabs.com 1. Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society, www.cas.org
  2. 2. Biofuels : “combustible materials directly or indirectly derived from biomass, commonly produced from plants, animals and micro-organisms but also from organic wastes”.
  3. 3. Biofuels according to the source of feedstock and the technology required to process the feedstock into fuel ● First-generation biofuels – Derived from food sources (e.g., corn, sugar cane, cereals, sugar beets) ● Second-generation biofuels – Derived from non-food sources (e.g., stalks of wheat, corn stover, wood) ● Third-generation biofuels – Derived from algae
  4. 4. Fact about Bioethanol Earliest example of biofuel technology used in transportation In 1908, Henry Ford introduced the Ford Model T, an automobile originally designed to run on corn-derived ethanol. As the auto industry adopted fossil fuels, interest in bioethanol and other biofuels for transportation diminished and nearly disappeared until the last quarter of the 20th century.
  5. 5. There is major trends in published research related to bioethanol production and found that scientific research on second generation biofuels—fuels derived from non-food sources
  6. 6. Second-generation bioethanol research soars nearly 600 percent in a decade
  7. 7. Patenting of bioethanol research accelerate as countries began to commercialize research This shift in publication methods indicates that research organizations are increasingly choosing to stake claim on intellectual property regarding second-generation bioethanol research by patenting their discoveries, rather than disseminating research information via journal articles.
  8. 8. The Status of second-generation biofuels ● According to the International Energy Agency, “second-generation biofuels are not yet produced commercially, but a considerable number of pilot and demonstration plants have been announced or set up in recent years, with research activities taking place mainly in North America, Europe and a few emerging countries (e.g. Brazil, China, India and Thailand).
  9. 9. First-Generation Journal Articles and Patent Documents
  10. 10. Second-Generation Journal Articles and Patent Documents
  11. 11. The Status of The Third-Generation Bioethanol Research Research into algae-based bioethanol remains limited compared to first- and second generation fuels. However, the total number of published patent documents and journal articles related to third-generation bioethanol increased substantially in 2008 and 2009, with patent documents accounting for most of the growth. The total number of published research documents examining third-generation bioethanol grew from just two documents in 1999 to 49 in 2009
  12. 12. Top-Five of Third-Generation Bioethanol Journal Articles and Patent Documents
  13. 13. China is the global leader in the patenting of bioethanol Discoveries although United States leads all other nations in the publication of scientific journal literature
  14. 14. Handbook on Biofuel “Buy buying this book, you already support OpenThink Labs, Negeri Pelangi in socializing the important of research especially about renewable energy in Indonesia.”
