The processes by which first generation biofuels are produced are well understood and widely deployed. The story is altogether different for advanced biofuels, and the race to develop an economically viable pathway is global. The first of two panels dedicated to conversion approaches looks at the efficacy of different thermochemical pathways in the context of low energy prices.
