[PBN] Study says biomass will comprise 12.5 percent of all renewable energy generation by 2014

From Biofuels Digest - 17/09/2009
In New York, SBI concludes that Biomass will comprise 12.5% of total renewable energy generation in 2014 , up from 10 percent today, in a new report: “Global Biofuels Market: Opportunities, Emerging Technologies and Production.” Worldwide data is provided on biorefineries, conversion and separation technologies, manufacturing, research and development, organic biofuels, capacity, components and competition.
SBI projects the $103 billion biofuels market will exceed $170 billion by 2014, with the fastest growth for bio-based energy manufacturing in regions such as China and India.
