Title: Central Biofuels Conference & Expo

Biofuels The New Fuel Economy
Mexico Biofuels Conference Guadalajara,
Mexico 7-8 May, 2008
The Race to Renewable
How we generate our energy will determine our
quality of life

Biofuels The New Fuel Economy
  • Oil surpasses the 121 mark Yesterday!
  • We can replace most of the fossil fuels demand
  • Oil resources are predicted to run out by 2055
  • Biofuels has shown to reduce GHG by 40-50
  • Energy independence/Energy Security Good
    public policy
  • Expand economic development in rural areas
  • The carbohydrate economy replaces carbon
  • An estimated 30 Billion (USD) investments in
    Renewable Fuels projects in 2006-2008 worldwide
  • From 2006 through April of 2008 over 1 Billion
    (USD) has been invested in cellulosic ethanol for
    RD and pilot plants. The source has been the US
    DOE and Canadas Agriculture Ministry.

The Race to Renewable
Changing our thinking will add to our energy
balance and economic opportunities

Developing A World Market
Issues Facing World Fuel Markets
1. Fuel Costs in the World Market A. Sierra
Leone 18.02USD/galB. Aruba 12.03USD/galC.
Europe/Paris 8USD/gal 2. Growing fuel/oil
demand 2006 USA imported 325B in crude oil,
non-crude and petroleum products (23 increase in
one year) 3. Reduced Refining Capacity Thirty
years with no new oil refineries built in USA 4.
China and India Fuel Demand The
combined growth of the two economies will require
new fuel capacity of an additional 40m
barrels/day in the next five years

Brazil and USA represent 84 of the World
Production of Ethanol

Biofuels The New Fuel Economy
Chicken and the egg Flex-fuel cars and trucks
  • USA Los productos de los grandes fabricantes
    americanos (G.M., Ford, Chrysler) son para E10.
    Tienen algunos para E85. Por ahora su mayor
    producción esta orientada a vehículos
    convencionales de gasolina.
  • Europa solo pocos fabricante tienen vehículos
    Flex-Fuel. (Saab, Ford, Volvo), especialmente
    para el mercado de Suecia, donde el uso del
    etanol esta nuy desarrollado..
  • Brazil País mas avanzados en desarrollo de
    vehículos Flex-Fuel . GM tiene modelos
    Flex-Fuel. Otros fabricantes como Mitsubishi y
    Toyota los introducirán próximamente.

Retail Fueling Challenges
USA Ethanol Blends E10 (most states) E20
(testing) E30 (testing) E85 (45 states)
  • New fueling pumps
  • and tanks are needed
  • Education for consumers at point of sale
  • Incentives and promotions to entice customers

Biofuels The New Fuel Economy
Transportation and Biofuels
Challenges for Biofuels
  • A long-term commitment to biofuels
  • Hemispheric cooperation to satisfy demand and
    economies of scale
  • Improve regulatory and investment climate
  • Establish strong finance partners venture
    capital, FIRA, I-ADB
  • Open up trade to make biofuels truly global
  • Stimulate price competition
  • Educate the public, the media, government
    officials, regulators
  • Establish technical programs at schools and train

Global Ethanol Feedstocks
Global Biodiesel Feedstocks
Biofuels The New Fuel Economy
  • Brazil
  • Second largest producer in the world
  • Most efficient producer in the world
  • Accounts for about half of international ethanol
  • Brazilian success generated large interest in
    biofuels across LAC. Countries throughout LAC
    have biofuels industries in varying stages of
  • Brazil engaging in cooperation agreements
  • Argentina
  • Second world corn exporter well positioned to
    develop ethanol and top producer to develop
    biodiesel (vegetable oil)

Biofuels The New Fuel Economy
  • Colombia
  • Currently E10
  • Fifth largest producer and exporter of palm oil
    4th in yield by hectare
  • Pioneering the use of tropical sugar beets and
    cassava for ethanol production
  • Potential advantage in access to the US market
    using trade agreements
  • Central America and Caribbean
  • Biofuels of interest in cutting oil imports and
    raising export revenue
  • Using trade agreements and CBI

Other Global Markets
  • Japan is moving from 3 ethanol blend to 10 by
  • India and Philippines have initiated fuel ethanol
  • Indonesia and Malaysia are planting more palm and
    now investing in ethanol production with
    molasses, cassava and sugar
  • Thailand has twelve ethanol plants and 10 more in
    planning stages

Brazil Sugar to Ethanol
Competing with the global leader
  • Liberalization leads to increasing growth
  • Poised to be strong exporter
  • Lowest-cost producer
  • Supportive government policy
  • Net energy balance
  • Abundant land resources
  • Increased internal demand due to FFV sales will
    change the export market dynamics
  • Existing trade USA through CBI (early summer
    arbitrage allowed heavy direct sales to the US),
    Japan and S. Korea
  • Development of export industry is challenged by
    other nations trade policies

Biofuels The Next Generation
Feedstocks for Cellulosic Ethanol
Wood waste
Corn Stover
..basically any waste plant material can be
converted to into ethanol either through
chemical or thermo process.

Chinas Vast Resources
Food vs. Fuel Debate
European Market
The Opportunities and Challenges
  • Poised to become net importer from Brazil and
  • Biofuels Directive (10 in 2020) to boost
    production of fuel ethanol and synthetic fuels to
    reach target
  • Growth of new capacity in Eastern Europe
  • Reforms of EU agricultural markets needed
  • Different biofuel requirements inhibit growth
  • Automotive industry must develop more biofuels

Americas Hemispheric Network
Americas Bioenergy Network
  • Americas Bioenergy Network
  • Member driven
  • Setting technical Standards
  • Building Partnerships
  • Promoting Clean Energy
  • Project Finance
  • Influencing Policy
  • Communications Center
  • Promoting your company
  • Accessing the global market

Partners for Euro-African Green Energy (PANGEA)
encourages African biofuel production as a way to
promote sustainable economic development using
what Africa does bestagriculture.
Africa Renewable Energy
  • Activities
  • Provide policy expertise to EU institutions and
    member states
  • Provide EU and African market analysis trade
  • Create strategic political industrial
    partnerships through networking
  • Quarterly Board meetings (Brussels) tied with
    EC/EP networking and Annual AGM
  • Participate in biofuel conferences and trade
    development workshops

  • Goals
  • To promote African biofuels production for the
    European market
  • To encourage European investment and policies for
    in African biofuel production and importation
  • To monitor food vs. fuel issues
  • To serve as a one-stop shop of African biofuel

The Race to Renewable
What the future holds is in your hands!
