Biofuels have developed for more than ten years in France thanks two products: ETBE (Ethyl Tertio Butyl Ether) and FAME (Fatty Acids Methyl Esters). These biofuels, in addition to a positive effect on greenhouse gases emissions, offer favourable characteristics for their use, but their blending rates are however limited due to some of their properties. Diversification of biomass resources and exploration of new ways to obtain even better adapted products as component of modern fuels and matching automotive industy requirements, have oriented research towards second generation biofuels like synthetic biodiesel. A first production unit using the NExBTL process, is due to start in 2007 in Finland, a second, scheduled by 2009, is under study in one of the European TOTAL refinery.
Key words: biofuels / ethyl tertio butyl ether / fatty acids methyl esters / greenhouse gases emissions / biomass resources
