Feedstocks for biofuel production are e.g.

  • plant oils
  • sugar beets
  • cereals
  • organic waste
  • processed biomass

All feedstocks, which contain amounts of sugar, as well as materials, that can be converted to sugar (e.g. starch or cellulose) can be used in a fermentation process to produce bioethanol.

In Table 1, numerous feedstocks, which can be utilized for bioethanol production as well as their comparative production potential are shown.
