Provides an overview of, and the key findings from, a JVAP commissioned study ‘Wood for Alcohol Fuels – Status of technology and cost/benefit analysis of farm forestry for bionergy’.

It summarises the status of the use of alcohol fuels, the drivers for producing alcohol fuels from wood, international developments, and estimated costs of alcohol fuel production in comparison with fossil fuels. The relative merits of electricity production from woody feedstock are also considered.

The report assesses broad benefits of alcohol fuel production from wood and makes recommendations relating to technology development, the ‘triple bottom line’, co-products and requirements of Government policy.
