The article discusses the growth of the bioethanol industry. Looking at Europe alone, the biodiesel market could be worth €8.5bn by 2011 and will see an annual growth rate of 27% from 2004 to 2011. In the future, bioethanol producers may focus on feedstocks with higher yields and lower investment costs such as straw and wood waste.
