Agricultural World biofuel production will increase four time

Agricultural products
of starchy and cereal crops like corn, wheat, sugarcane, sorghum and beets are
used to produce bioethanol.  . Oil- or
tree-seeds of sunflower, palm, soya, coconut, rapeseed or jatropha.Currently,
the European Union’s goal of 5.75 per cent biofuel part in the fuel transport
blend by 2010 will require a fivefold increase in European Union
production. World biofuel production will increase four time in upcoming 20
years, which will account for ten percent of international transport gasoline.
Now a days, bioethanol is the mostly used biofuel for transport globally.  In 2004 worldwide production of biofuels
reached thirty three million liters, with an average annual growth of 12 per cent over the last five years. Almost 60 % of worldwide
bioethanol yield is obtained from sugarcane and 40 per cent from other crops.
Brazil is leading world production with 15 billion liters distilled from sugarcane,
equivalent to 38 percent of global production. The United State is the 2nd
largest producer and consumer, accounting for 32 % of world bioethanol production in 2004. Bioethanol production
was started from corn in the 1970s, but its use
is increasing currently. Capacity to produce bioethanol is increased from 4 billion
liters in 1996 to 14 billion liters in 2004, which accounts for more than 2 percent
of national petroleum usage the United States. Biodiesel production started in
the 1990s and since then production has been increasing. Worldwide biodiesel
production reached a record of 1.8 billion
liters in 2003. Compared to bioethanol, however, total biodiesel production is fairly small. The European Union is the main
producer of biodiesel, which accounts for about 95 per cent of worldwide
production. Biofuels currently account for about 1.4
percent of EU fuel usage and biodiesel
represents about 82 per cent of the European Union biofuel market. Between 80
and 85 per cent of European Union production comes from
rapeseed oil, which is equal to 20 % of the total European Union rapeseed production. Worldwide production of
bioethanol in 2011 was almost ten billion liters and in 2020 it will increase
up to 281.5 billion liters
