The Danish government has allocated DKK 200 m (USD 34 m) over a four-year period for research into second generation bioethanol production with the aim of putting the country up among the world leaders in the area. Second generation bioethanol is produced from waste products such as garbage, straw and wood chips, while first generation biofuel is made from crops such as sugar beet, maize and corn.

Professor Birgitte Ahring at the Knowledge Centre for Waste, Technical University of Denmark, comments: "It is very encouraging that further funding is being allocated to the area. Whether or not the sum is sufficient cannot be said, but what is crucial is that we can maintain the lead we have established in research and development in Denmark in recent years."

As reported earlier in the year on this website, Biogasol, a fledgling firm based at the Technical University of Denmark has developed a groundbreaking technology for cost-efficient production of bioethanol. Biogasol´s new process technology reportedly has the potential to become the future industry standard for second generation bioethanol production. The news was reported by national daily newspaper Berlingske Tidende.
