3_10/2010Cover Picture: Next-Generation Biofuels: Survey of Emerging Technologies and Sustainability Issues (ChemSusChem 10/2010)

The cover picture is from the Review by Stanislav Miertus et al., who describe on p. 1106 how next-generation biofuels, such as cellulosic bioethanol, biomethane from waste, synthetic biofuels obtained via gasification of biomass, biohydrogen, and others are currently in the centre of attention of technologists and policy makers in search of a more sustainable biofuel of tomorrow. In order to set realistic targets for the future biofuel options, it is important to assess their sustainability according to technical, economic, and environmental points of view. Opportunities and limits are discussed in terms of technical applicability of existing and emerging technology options to bio-waste feedstock, and further development forecasts are made based on the existing social-economic and market situation, feedstock potentials, and other global aspects.
