Analyzing the US Biomass & Biofuels Industry
The United States has been advocating the growth of biomass and biofuels as a clean source of fuel for the transportation industry. In a bid to significantly diversify transportation fuels in the country, the US government has put in place many programs and incentives that are aimed at boosting the growth of biomass power and biofuels.

Aruvians Rsearch in its report Analyzing the US Biomass and Biofuels Industry analyzes the US biomass power market and the biofuels market in the country.

The section begins with an analysis of the biomass power market in the US. We begin with a definition of biomass to clearly distinguish the biomass market from the biofuels market. A technical analysis of biomass and the challenges facing this industry adds to the market profile. Cost analysis and the market outlook for this renewable energy segment completes this brief profile of the US biomass power market.

Moving on, we analyze the US biofuels market.

The section dealing with biofuels begins with an analysis of the overall biofuel market in the US. This includes production and capacity installation data for ethanol and biodiesel, the industry structure, market opportunities and issues, as well as government funding trends.

We then analyze the US ethanol market in which we undertake an analysis of the tax incentives, regulatory framework, ethanol by-products, and a market outlook of the US ethanol industry.

A brief analysis of the US biodiesel market, US methanol fuel market, and the US butanol fuel market is also included.

Ethanol and Biodiesel subsidies are analyzed along with a market outlook for the US biofuels market. Major players in the industry such as Abengoa Bioenergy, Allegro Biodiesel, American AgFuels, and many others are analyzed in the section.
