Market studies galore!

It is time to post several market studies announcements that have been stewing in the blog's draft box. These are mostly prospectus or executive summaries so of course you still have to pay for the full report.

BIO-BUTANOL

A recent one is from Informa Economics as they look to develop a multi-client bio-butanol study. Within the biofuels application, butanol could solve two critical problems that currently occurs for ethanol, according to Informa:
  • Eliminating the need for refiners to purchase RINs from independent blenders – at prices that have recently been many times higher than in past years – since biobutanol can be blended at refineries and transported in existing pipelines (unlike ethanol, which is usually blended downstream at terminals).
  • Punching through the 10% ethanol (E10) blend wall and eliminating the need for refiners to purchase RINs (renewable identification numbers) from independent blenders at prices that have recently been many times higher than in past years.
